Question about Samsung HL-P6163W 61" TV

1 Answer

There is a whining sound upon powering up my HL-P6163W which softens after about 5 minutes, but doesn't disappear completely. I think the source is either the color wheel or the cooling fan. How can I determine which?

If using a cable or sat box try a DVD etc when set cold, a box can cause lockup issues via signal.

Not a color wheel is correct, more likely a DMD which is rather pricy and almost as much as the entire light engine which comes with it.

Do a factory reset to this set. If sleep timer function is set to 15 minutes, the set will turn OFF by itself after this time.

Have a HLP 4663W... Picture fine but a loud whine upon start up that used to go away after about 5 minutes - but now is persistent. Someone had told me that the fan may have dust, but after doing some...


definately sounds like a color wheel, You can tell by listening to where the sound is coming from if its coming from the right side when looking in the rearabout six inches in from the left side in the middle of the light engine is where the color wheel and housing are located. the housing is held in with two screws and then unplug the 2 wire cables. You can get the replacement color wheel from www.tvrepairworld.com which has instructions.

Samsung Big screen mod. HL-P6163W made load pop, then buzzing sound with screen going to black and white. Make buzzing sound and no picture when turned back on?


This set has a problem with the color wheel falling apart, which if one of the segments should fly off while the set was on it may sound like a loud pop, and the buzzing sound could be mechanical in nature with the wheel being off balance. If smoke appeared after the loud pop, then it could be a capacitor blowing in the power or video circuits. This model uses two different types of Color Wheel assemblies, either an L3 or a L6 and it would be listed on a white label on the Light Engines metal frame. Hope your solution is this easy.

I have a HL-P6163W, hooked to dish network hd


Fire the TV Tech! Your problem is the adjustment to the color wheel timing. To correct this: With TV OFF -> on remote, press MUTE, 1, 8, 2, POWER. The TV will come up in service mode: ( Left / Right arrow keys for item selection, Up / Down to change values, Menu to return to previous menu, Power to exit Service Mode)

Enter the submenu of item 1. DDP1011. Now, adjust item 4. INDEX DELAY to correct the "clay facing" problem you are having . Default value is 47.

You should have a "problem" image paused to check you work if possible. I hope this was of some assistance, best wishes.

Tv shuts off, when i push power button it goes back on.it can play for minutes or hours before it goes off again.


Try uplunging the power cord to the tv, for about fifteen minutes or so. That will clear the memory in the tv, you might accidently push the power button to many times at once.
