Question about Samsung HL-R6167W 61" HDTV
We have a Samsung HLR6167W and are having a few problems with the television. This is the second time our television has been struck by lightning, we are assuming this is what happened this time because it is doing the exact same thing as the television did the first time. Sometimes the television will not turn on and sometimes it will and if we get a picture it has alot of different colored lines and dots all over the screen. The first time it was struck we had to replace the main control panel. The cost was around 1100.00 and I was just wondering if this is a part that I can purchase and replace myself? I was just trying to save some of the expense and complete the project ourselves.
yes, you can change the control board yourself in order to save cost. But you have to make sure the control board you will be buying is tested or has a warranty, that is , if it does not work, you will return it.
Replacing the control board is not a bid task. All you need to do is to disassemble the TV, remove all the wires connected to the control board and make sure you write out the colors of the wire and their position so that you can fix them back to their right position. Or you can snap it with camera so that there won't mix up the connection.
That's all you need to do. Also take not that TV store electric current, so leave it for a while before you disassemble it.
I wish you the best of luck.
