Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV

2 Answers

Fan locations I am installing a new color wheel. I removed the screws holding one the fans in place. The cables are still connected. Now I can not find the screw wholes to refasten the fan. It is not the one attached to the base at an angle, or the one apparently directly cooling the bulb. Can you give me a clue. Obviously the location has to be within reach of the still connected cables. I really feel like an extremely frustrated idiot. I tried Samsung directly and they were so cooperative I have probably bought my last Samsung product. Thanks for your attention and any help you cam give Harvey Goldblatt

    The information provided did not help. I already had these instructions. Thanks to a friend I found out where the fan went and completed the installation. The problem is I now have a dark translucent diagonal shadow across approximately half the screen. It almost looks like something is either obstructing part of the lens or light source. Do you have any suggestions?

    I would suggest to go back and check the light and or the color wheel for any contamination such as finger prints or dust. Be very gentle when you clean them.

Samsung Color Wheel replacement!


This varies a little depending on model number of the set.

Usually a bad color wheel will produce a high pitched sound or even a grinding noise; some sets may actually shut down if the wheel is bad or shattered.

To determine if you have a bad color wheel:
  1. Turn set off and wait for main fan to shut off.
  2. Unplug the set.
  3. Remove the lamp door and then remove the lamp.
  4. In the direction the lamp faces you will see a round opening; the color wheel is facing this opening. It is a round plastic wheel with colored segments—we want to look to see if any of the segments are missing; a shattered wheel should be clear to see.
  5. If the wheel is shattered or makes the high pitched fan like sound you can with the model number go online to someplace like Ebay with the model number of your set and find a part number and replacement wheel for your set---most of these are 70 to 90 plus shipping—make sure you get the right part.
  6. The wheel turns at about 14,000 rpm and eventually the motor seizes up causing this problem.
  7. Depending on model number there are some variations on how to replace it; but for the most part it requires the following.
  8. With the set unplugged remove the entire back cover.
  9. Locate the optical light engine dead center in the middle of the set. Some models have a large square box in front of it that you have to unbolt and remove plugs from one side—mark the plugs so when you remove them you can put them back in the exact same place.
  10. The Light engine has to be pulled out of the set to replace the color wheel; this kind of repair usually takes less than an hour from start to finish.
  11. Once you get the engine out you will find a somewhat square black plastic shroud on the right side of it----3 philips screws secure it to the frame of the engine.
  12. Remove the screws and you should be able to pull the shroud up and away.
  13. The Color wheel has two cables coming out of it; one is a 3 or 4 wire small square plug and the other is a flat ribbon cable2_bing.gif. Be very careful when you remove the plug with wires—some people break the wires and then have to get the plug out of the socket with care. Both plugs connect the color wheel to the optical engine. The flat orange ribbon cable only has contacts on one side-WHEN YOU REMOVE IT NOTE WHICH DIRECTION THE CONTACTS ARE ON---if you put it in backwards(it can be done) the lamp will not turn on.
  14. You need to be careful when you replace the shroud over the color wheel so that the two cables(the ribbon cable and the other one) do not get pinched by it.
  15. With the wheel replaced; install the light engine back in place.
  16. All these sets have a safety switch on the back edge of the frame---it is a lever that will not allow the set to be turned on with the back removed. After you have installed the light engine back if you want to see if it worked; tape or hold the lever(usually blue and on the right side as you look from the back).
  17. If the set comes on and the lamp comes on do not look directly at the lamp---Once you see you have a working set turn it off and wait for the lamp fan to shut off in back—usually a few minutes.
  18. Bolt everything back and replace the back cover also---this should complete the repair.
  19. Some of these sets after you do this will work but the color will look off--flesh tones will be off--if this happens there is a small jumper on the metal box on the light engine that needs to be located and pulled out--places that sell the color wheel do not tell people about this. SD TECH

I have an rca hdlp6iw51 and i found a color wheel on ebay but i dont know how to change it does anyone have any advice


Follow this steps:
1. Take the back panel off of your set, using your Phillips head screwdriver, to remove any screws. 2. Remove the projector lamp. You can reach the color wheel without doing it, but you are less likely to damage the projector lamp if you take it out. Loosen the screws at the base: depending on your DLP's brand, the screws may come out, or may just loosen. If they come out, set them in a safe place before removing the lamp. If not, just pull the entire lamp out, once the screws will not loosen further. 3. Take out the panel that is connected to the cable outlets, using the screwdriver to take out any screws. Pull the panel until the cables, attached from the inside, run out of slack.
4. Remove the screws at the bottom of the panel, in the center, and any screws connecting this panel to the outer case of your DLP. The number and location of these screws will vary depending on your DLP's brand.

  • 6 Pull out the entire center unit, pulling gradually. Then, unplug the power cable from the main set (this is generally blue and brown). Remove the sensor switch and any cables joining the center unit to either side of the set.
  • 7 Take out the plug from the cover of the color wheel. In most brands, it will have a black and blue wire connected to a green circuit board. Then, remove any cables coming out of the wheel. Depending on the brand, the screws may be small enough to require the jeweler's screwdriver.
  • 8 Remove the screws holding the color wheel cover in place. Remove the cover, then take out the screws holding the wheel in place. If tape is holding the wheel, just pull on the wheel until it comes free.
  • 9 Put the new wheel into the slot. You do not want to touch the wheel, or you will blemish it and leave impressions that will be visible when the light shines through it. Re-insert the screws. Then, replace the cover, making sure that the wire jacks are in the same places.

    After 10 sec. after start up the tv starts to make a large growling sound for about 5 secs. then repeats every 15 sec. sounds like if might be a fan. How many fans in this t.v. . Took the back cover off...


    That growling sound is most likely a your color wheel. Often, a color segment breaks free and causes the wheel to become unbalanced. I would suggest searching for a tutorial or "How-To" on replacing it. Basically, you need to disconnect (about 4 connections) and remove the Light Engine (2 screws). Then pull the cover off the color wheel housing (to the left of the lamp, 2 screws). Disconnect and remove the color wheel (2 screws and 2 connectors). You will need to use a vac the glass out from the lost color segment(s). Here's a tip for reassembly: color wheel 4-wire ribbon.. copper on the connector should face you. Also, the lamp door switch must be tripped or the TV will not fire up. I hope this was helpful.

    How do I replace the "color wheel" in this T.V.? (I have new one)


    First you have to remove the Optics Engine itself, Locate the lamp housing and remove the lamp, the color wheel is attached to a large grey or black heat sink looking device, with two screws holding it in place. Look for a copper colored flex cable, and a small three wire plug connection to a Aluminum container. Trace these wires form the container which is by the way called the DMD Module. Tracing the wires will lead you directly to the color wheel assembly. Remove tthe two screws holding the color wheel in place and lift up gently, their is also a rubber seal around the color whee housing that needs to be replaced also but should come with the new wheel.

    Remove speaker grill at bottom of set. Remove screen by taking out all the screws from the back of the rim of the screen. Two ribbon cables from the front controls need to be unplugged to set the screen to one side. Remove two screws holding the light engine shroud in place. Side it toward the front and lift out of the way. The color wheel housing as only two screws holding it down. There are two wires coming from the color wheel housing. One has three wires with a white plug on the end that plugs into the left end of the light engine's metal box. Next to the plug is a ribbon cable that is slid into its socket. You will notice two shiney philips screws holding down the color wheel housing. Remove them and the color wheel housing can be lifted out. Unplug the two wires going to the light engine.
