2005 Samsung DLP HLP6163WX/XAA. Replaced Color

2005 Samsung DLP HLP6163WX/XAA. Replaced Color Wheel less than a year ago. TV will turn on, may have picture (for some time) may not but picture is slower to come on screen when it does now. May stay on for 5 mins, may stay on all day. Getting worse about picture not coming on at all. The only way to turn it off is to unplug it. Already changed Bulb but no difference. Strange thing is that now once turned on, no green or red lights on on/off button center bottom of tv and the remote won't turn tv on or off, volume control on remote won't work either. Control module buttons on side of tv don't work either, even when tv is on and sound is working. Something's haywire and I am bound and determined to fix it myself but am in need of some advise. Any ideas? Ballast? Temp module? No strange noises to indicate color wheel again. Could there be something else causing the internal sensors to not read remote and controls on side of tv? I am lost but not giving up.

SOURCE: Samsung HLP6163WX/XAA DLP HDTV - lamp and noise issues

Hello:
Replace the color wheel again, its gone bad again. the clicking is the ballast trying to fire the lamp. The Ballast will not fire the lamp until the color wheel has reported it has reached an RPM of around 9000rpm. This is a normal sound. Most of the time the color wheel will make a loud whining sound when bearings go bad, sounds like a Airplane using reverse thrusters when landing and a even louder sound when it shatters in the housing. Also the reason it may of gone bad so soon is because they make to versions of this color wheel, Bearing type and the Air type. I don't know who installed your color wheel, but it should of came with a small tag or paper of some sort with numbers on it. Most people throw this away when it is very important to let the unit know which type of wheel is being installed to set the parameters for either type of wheel. Most people who install colors wheels themselves to save money do not know this, and the only way to install the new settings is thru the Factory Service Mode. There are also color parameters to input for the type of wheel being used.

This is your basic Color wheel 101..
Hope I gave you some insite of what may of caused your problem...Please leave comment if more info is needed..Lavell

Sounds likea bad color wheel to me, or possibly a lamp has blown. If the noise is a humming sound--it is the CW--if you hear a "sound like a sizzle, for a few seconds and then normal, and this repeats a few times--the lamp has blown.

If using a cable or sat box try a DVD etc when set cold, a box can cause lockup issues via signal.

Not a color wheel is correct, more likely a DMD which is rather pricy and almost as much as the entire light engine which comes with it.

TV won't stay on


Hello Fonzell!
Regarding the tv turning, my question is, do you hear a clicking sound? if so, it's most probable tio be your ballast, that might not have enough voltage to keep on with your lamp, and that's why it shuts off.
You could try replacing it and seeing if it resolves your issue, I believe they're running around 70 dlls..
have a great one ! :)

My Samsung 50" DLP HDTV keeps humming when the DLP lamp comes on.


Hi, you have one of two problems, either the color wheel is going or one of the cooling fans are going, the color wheels are a very common problem in samsung dlp`s, sorry I can`t nail it to a specific part but I`d bet it`s the color wheel as they are notorious for failing in samsungs, video-tek

Replacement color wheel for samsung 50'


I am having the exact same issue with the exact same TV. They no longer make that color wheel, so I am looking for a replacement part as well.

I am looking at the 01103A as well from here:
http://www.partstore.com/Part/Samsung/Samsung/BP9601103A/New.aspx?ModelMfgName=Samsung&ModelBrandName=Samsung&ModelNumber=HLR5078W

I think I might just order it, and if it doesn't work just return it.

Sounds like the color wheel shattered. If you google it, you should find information about replacement parts and installation. I had to go through the same thing a couple years ago.

Power issues (Tv not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.
