Question about Samsung HL-P6163W 61" TV

1 Answer

HLP6163W-loud annoying noise comes from the back, tv shuts off, three lights flash

TV is made in 2004. On 1/1/08 I bought a new lamp because I was hearing noise and seeing flashing lights/poor picture. After only about 3 months I started hearing the noise again (usually for a few minutes after turning the TV on after it was powered off for a couple hours) thinking it may be the color wheel. Now, the noise has become really loud and annoying, the TV powers off, all three lights flash. The lamp doesn't even turn on now, but when it did: the screen would display all kinds of colors. It doesn't appear that the lamp is defective after looking at it closely. What would be the diagnosis? Color wheel? Base Socket? Thank you for reply.

Samsung hlp6163w dlp tv not working, new lamp, new ballast, still three blinking lights


If color wheel does not run lamp will not fire----with lamp removed have you looked at the wheel----if not running it will cause almost instant shutdown of lamp and the set.

If the DMD board is bad time for a new set as it is well over 500 .

You color wheel would have been the source of the humming noise. It is not terrible difficult to replace. I believe there are a few tutorials on this website that can assist you if you want to DiY this repair. Just remember to trip the lamp door switch and test the unit prior to replacing the back cover... it will same you time if you need to correct a mistake.

HLP, HCN HL-S The Start-up Problem or/and
3 LEDs in the front blinking.

Unplug the set, pull out the lamp module (not all the way - leave it on the track) and push it back in.

Power issues (Tv not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.

Blank Screen Problem


Does the menu come up? If it does, then, the source could be the problem, such as the cable or DVD player. If the source is not the issue, then, the problem would be in the Digital or Analog PCBs. If the menu does not come on, then, the problem is more than likely the DMD. If it is not the source then call a local authorized Samsung servicer in your area. Contact 1-800-Samsung. Hope this helps.
