Question about Samsung Televison & Video
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.

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.

could be the colorwheel. listen right after the power button is press you should hear a slight wind up noise coming from the rear of the tv. if you dont hear that the colorwheel may be bad
