I just replaced the color wheel on my HLR6167W, everything went just fine - after installation, turned the set on, picture is great but too high on the screen. Don't have any adjustment keys on the remote and can't find any support in the owner's manual.

Don't have any adjustment keys on the remote and can't find any support in the owner's manual. Is there an adjustment screw(s), if so - where are they?

Don't have any adjustment keys on the remote and can't find any support in the owner's manual. I've adjusted the screws on the "gunsight" with no change to the picture position. HELP!?!?!

Well, you may have bumped the DMD board causing your issue. You can try to move it back down, or you might be able to move the vertical position in the service menu

to boot into service mode-
tv is off
push mute 1 8 2 power
the tv will come on, with a service screen
make sure not to change anything! when you exit this mode it saves.. if you accidentally change something and cant put it back, pull the power plug!
anyways, then go into the sub menus, i think the one you want is
"service" and find the "v position" try moving the picture down in here

if this doesn't solve, you may have moved the dmd board too far and will have to push it around to fix the issue.

let me know if this is the case as thats a much harder procedure.

    Hi - thanks for helping. I got to the service mode, cant see the top of the menu, but can see H mode and if I "arrow" up one I think I would be on V mode. What do I do from there - I mean, what buttons do I utilize to move the screen. I'll try it on the H mode but nothing happens when I push Enter.

    once you select the v position, just use the up and down arrows to move the data
    you might use left and right, move the numbers and see if you can get it back down

    what really happened is that the dmd board slipped when you put in the colorwheel
    the dmd board is the one that the color wheel plugs into and has the big heatsink on it (dmd or dlp chip) with the fan blowing at it. there are 3 or 4 screws with springs on them to hold it down tight, and then a few more screws that "lock" it into place. you need to loosen the lock screws (they're probably already loose, it moved!) and then move this whole board around. this board is directly hooked to the chip that makes the picture, so when you move the board, the picture will move too. you will have to adjust while the set is running, so tape down the lamp door interlock switch tightly so you can run it, and don't look into the lamp light (uv radiation!)
    its hard to see what youre doing and a millimeter translates to about an inch on the screen. have someone else look at the picture, or use a mirror or something. most dlps have little access panels (circles) on the sides of the upper cabinet so you can see the back of the screen to help you adjust this.

    I typically will set the brightness to max so i can see the edges of the dlp chip, and then use like espn or something to adjust. get the picture level and filling out the whole screen, you can always go into service mode and move the "data" up and down, but you can't move the picture past the edge of the chip. move it around, it takes forever, and get it level and hopefully you'll get it. this is a hard adjustment so have patience. when you get it perfect or very close, tighten down those lock screws without bumping the board and that should hold it into place. make sure the "spring" screws are pretty tight but be careful as theyre pretty fragile.

    let me know if you need more assistance. have patience! this is a tricky one, but its all about just getting that board in the right spot.

    I'm glad you were able to fix the problem. That typically doesn't happen when you change the colorwheel, but has always been a concern of mine when I pull out that engine. As a TV tech, me and my colleges always dread having to calibrate the DMD board on a DLP TV.. you should feel proud of yourself for getting it resolved. Let me know if you ever need any other advice or assistance, it's my pleasure to help.

There is small metal tube that kind of looks like a sight on a rifle if that makes any sense....There are two very small screws on the top and right side.
You need to adjust these screws to get the picture back in alignment.

    Where is the small metal tube in relation to the color wheel, and will I need to remove the center tray from the tv?

  • Brad Brown Jun 05, 2010

    If you open up the back and pull out the "insides", from here, you need to remove the color wheel, the small heat sync fan and the metal plate it is attached to. Remove everything until you get to it.

  • troydsnider Jun 05, 2010

    I keep getting your first response - I need more info to accept it, please respond. Thx Troy

  • troydsnider Jun 05, 2010

    OK - the heat sync fan, not sure where that is. Any chance of a photo - I'll send you what I've got.

    Thanks for helping me!

  • troydsnider Jun 05, 2010

    Ok - found the screws, I'm assuming I'll have to remove and replace a few times before I get the picture adjusted. Any idea which screw will move the picture down?

  • Brad Brown Jun 05, 2010

    Dont take it off. Just turn on the screw 1/4 turn and see, screw in probably raises it and screw out lowers it. You want the screw that is verticle for the adjustment. The other screw is side to side adjustment.

  • troydsnider Jun 05, 2010

    The screws when turned as much as a 1/2 turn make such minute changes, this can't be the only thing to change the position of the picture on the screen. It is almost 5 full inches from the bottom of the picture to the bottom of the screen.

I have a Vivitek RP51HD41-A TV. The TV keeps turning off and on. The color and sound is fine. I have replaced the lamp and this has not fixed the problem.


If its a DLP it may have a color wheel which could be your problem (the colors will change etc)

Color wheels move at high speed and if slow down set will shut down.

The wheel if there will face the lamp. If often if failing will make a high pitched whine or a fan like sound.

Hi,If you are getting a black and white picture,color discoloration or a humming high pitch sound, it will be an issue with the color wheel.The color wheel is a rotating disc that spins at high rpm and its in charge of creating the colors on your set.Found it here:http://www.discount-merchant.com/Samsung-Replacement-Color-Wheel-HLS-HLT-Series-p/samsungcolor_wheel_bp96-01579a.htm You can replace it

Does the TV appear to be cycling on and off, like its attempting to boot up? Or, does it just not come on at all? Don't miss the lamp door interlock switch. Many Samsung DLPs have tempermental door switches. Try re-installing the door or manually hold the switch in the closed postion and try to power it up. If the lamp comes on and stays lit, you've found your problem.

HL-R6768W not turning on. High pitch spin sound. Bad color wheel?


The high-pitched whine is definitely the color wheel.  The early color wheels had problems and many had to be replaced.  As part of the turn-on process, the TV checks for light and then checks for color wheel sync.  If the bearings are wearing out/dried out, it could cause issues with getting the proper color wheel sync, causing the set to not pass the turn on sequence.
Check Sears or partstore.com for a color wheel.  I like sears for experimental replacements since they allow easy returns.
BTW, mine is an early 61".  My color wheel was replaced when I had to replace my Light Engine.  My in-laws 50" was an early one and theirs went out within 2 years.

I heard a pop and now the projector only shows black and white.


The color wheel has failed in youtr projector. There are 4 pieces of glass in the color wheel which fit togeter in a "pie" formation and they are red, blue, yellow & clear. This wheel is spun by a motor. The glass is glued to the motor's hub, and, when it fails the glass segments are thown off the hub. This gives you a B&W picture because all of the light is allowed to shine through the optics all of the time. Replace the color wheel with Toshiba part no: 23125963. It will be about $65. No soldering is involved, just use care with the ribbon cable to the motor. You will need a no. 2 phillips screwdriver and a set of jeweles screwdrivers to do this.

Samsung DLP HL-S5087W 56" Confused...


Mine did that when the color wheel didn't spin up...just give it a whack where you installed the light & the wheel should spin up. I had to replace my color wheel as the bearing was shot & was buzzing all the time. The light won't come on if the wheel doesn't spin up first.

No picture, but it does have sound. HLN617W


This sounds similar to the same problem I had with my TV. I went out and purchased a new light thinking it was the source of the problem, but I was wrong. It turns out the color wheel and fan went bad and it cost roughly $575.00 for the parts and labor to fix it. My tv was the hlr6167w
