Question about Samsung Televison & Video

Open Question

I have a Samsung HL-S6186W DLP TV that I bought back in 2006. The tv turns off alone at times. I'm thinkking the bulb is starting to go bad, but the picture is still good. I don't want to buy a new bulb just to find out that was not the problem.

SOURCE: Samsung HL-S4266W 42 in. TV has a bad DLP module.

The part # all depends on which version of the set that you have. Take a gander round the side of your side. Right side, if memory serves. You should see a sticker with 3 lines. One for model #, one for serial and one for version.

On the off chance you don't see one, check around the left side of the screen and take note of the lamp code. Your version will probably be a PB01 or PB02.

Depending on the version, the part # changes. Either way, you're looking at about $200.00 for a DLP chip. That's just the chip mind you, not the DMD PCB that drives it, or the rest of the light engine that helps process that information. I have had, during the course of my career, replaced a DLP chip to address white spots on the screen and found that insufficient voltage from the power supply cause the issue in the first place, or that the light engine itself was a contributing factor.

If you were to replace the light engine itself, you would replace all three components here and guarantee yourself a solid repair. You would hit the LE, the DLP and DMD all at once by doing a light engine. Granted, the cost is substantially more, but it might be easier in the long run to swallow $600.00 for a completed set than to swallow $200.00 for a DLP chip that didn't fix the issue and now can't be returned. Plus, a light engine will literally take you 30 minutes to put in and be done. Maybe even less.

PS - Don't touch the surface of that chip. And when you remove the DMD, pull out the old DLP chip and insert the new one....you're going to have to have help. Someone is going to need to watch the screen while you manipulate the DMD--set on and running--to align it back to the aperture. Have fun.


Part #s: Version PB01 :
4719-001968
Version PB02:

SOURCE: TV turns off by itselft

Ensure that the TV is off. It may be advisable to unplug the TV as well.
2 Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove the single screw affixing the lamp cover (the small, grill panel on the back of the set) to the chasis. There is also a grill that is held in place by tension. Just "pinch" the thumb clamp on the bottom of the grill and slide it out. This is the same procedure you would perform to change the lamp, except in this case you will not need to remove the lamp itself.
3 Inspect the spring-loaded blue safety switch to ensure it is making good contact when the panel is secured. The switch should deflect downward when the panel is replaced. If the contact with the panel is suspect, very gently bend the metal bracket on which the switch is mounted.
4 Replace the grill cover and the lamp door, and continue to enjoy your TV.
5.Check some basics first. Make sure the sleep timer on your TV hasn't been turned on, telling your set to turn off at a certain time. If your DLP TV is acting erratically, Samsung recommends turning the set off and unplugging it for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes plug it back in and turn it back on. Unplugging the set resets it, and that may fix the problem.
6 Check your power supply. Make sure your Samsung DLP is securely plugged into a working outlet. Plug the TV into a different outlet to see if the problem still exists. Make sure that a fuse hasn't blown in your house or a circuit breaker hasn't flipped.
7 Replace the lamp. If your Samsung DLP is shutting off or won't turn on, a bad lamp is the most likely cause. To replace the lamp, remove the lamp cover from the back of the TV by removing the screws with a Phillips screwdriver and slide it out and away from the TV. Remove the screws on the lamp assembly and slide it out of the TV. Disconnect the old lamp and insert a new lamp into the assembly. Slide the assembly back into place and replace the screws. Do the same for the lamp cover.
8 Check for signs of overheating. Samsung DLP TVs generate a sizable amount of heat. If the components inside the TV get to hot, the TV will shut itself off as a protective measure. Make sure your DLP is out 12 inches or so from the wall. Make sure that all of the vents on the set are clear of any obstructions. Allow the TV to cool down for 30 minutes before turning it back on.
9 Contact Samsung. If none of the above tips help, it's time to contact Samsung, as the problem is likely something that should only be fixed by a qualified service technician. More serious problems may include a bad power supply or a bad ballast. Attempting to repair those yourself will void your warranty and may cause more serious damage to your set.

The safety switch exists so the user does not accidentally remove the lamp door while the TV is on. Doing so could, theoretically, result in burn or electrocution. This spring loaded switch causes the TV to shut down when the door is opened.
Since the TV's chasis is plastic, expansion and contraction can cause the switch to lose firm contact with the lamp door. The TV's behavior could then be such that after being on for a while (getting warm) the plastic expands and the switch loses enough contact to cause the TV to shut down. The frequency with which this phenomenon occurs is not only dependent on the internal temperature of the TV, but also the ambient temperature of the room as well as the relative tension on the switch itself. The user's perception is that the TV starts up fine, but then "randomly" turns itself off after being on for a while.
If you have recently moved your TV, it is very common for random shut-downs to occur. This is because the move has shifted the flimsy plastic chasis of the TV, thereby loosening the contact between the lamp door and the switch.
Make sure your TV is off and cool when performing this procedure.

First when I turn it on it's okay for a few minutes ,then it starts to flicker and shuts off.Three lights are on Standby/Temp/Lamp Temp and Lamp lights are blinking.


Try unplugging the TV. Remove the back panel and vacuum the dust out. Sounds like the unit may be overheating and the thermal shutoff is operating to prevent fire. Be careful not to move the projection lenses out of alignment. It is also a good time to clean those lenses carefully. It will improve your picture a lot.

Samsung dlp slow to light up when first turned on


if your TV is slow to light up when first turned on its more then likely your bulb. When your bulb start to go bad it will take the TV longer to come on. Try using the bright feature in the menu. If that brightens your TV up then its your lamp going bad.

Samsung Dlp completely shuts off and then all three lights flash


Sounds more like the TV is overheating. The lamp cooling fan may be seized or not spinning fast enough. If the TV gets hot enough to trip the thermal, it could rupture the lamp.

I have a Samsung HL-S6186W 61" DLP HDTV I could get the hd channels over the air with an antenna before but now I can't get any thru cable without going thru my dvd recorder tuner first which degrades the...


Select TV input, Press Menu, Select Channel, in menu Antenna=Cable (for you), (then perhaps, Auto Program with Cable or Air+Cable), tweak Channel List, turn on LNA if needed, shouldn't be.
Somewhere there may be different modulations, some offset the channel a fraction and are important for channels above 13. I'm basing this on my non-cable Samsung HL-T5687.
BTW, I had an HLS until it gave trouble, paid for an upgrade to LED from bulb when I got HLT. Very pleased, until it fails. -Ken

Our Samsung HL-P4663W DLP is makes noise and shuts off


It is the color wheel, inside the light engine. The bearings get dirty and makes it harder for the wheel to spin causing that whin.
