Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

Frequently when I turn on my 18-month old Samsung HL-S6188W (61" DLP) it is in a mode where none of the on-screen graphics (like the active input or volume level) show up. Also only some of the video inputs will actually get displayed. The only way I found to fix it is unplug the AC power. This seems to fix the problem. Has anyone else seen this problem?

This sounds like a problem is starting in the control area for the display information. Eventualy the set will need service for this. Most likely a component(s) is starting to fail in the area for the display information.

I replaced the fan # 2 after getting that error on


Which fan did samsung say was fan #2 ? As from my experience dealing with Samsung they dont know the difference between the fans but fan 2 error is usually refering to the fan under the light engine in the L7 and the L6 its the small one in the gray plastic case which blows under the ballast.

This could be a ballast issue. It's a very common issue with Samsung TVs.
