Samsung 61" DLP TV color issue

I've had my Samsung 61" DLP TV for over 3 years and after 1.5 years i noticed on occasion that i would lose all red and pink color suddenly which would leave the screen looking very green. A simple turning the TV on and off would fix the problem most times. After seeing the problem for a few months it went away for a good 6 to 9 months now the same problem has returned, worse then ever meaning most times when the tv is turned on it starts with no red or pink and tuning the set on and off does'nt fix the problem anymore. At times i also noticed the red trying to come back with visual flickering but for the most part the past 2 months i'm stuck watching Movies and TV with a green tint that i can't change or get rid of no matter what i try. Any suggestions on what happening and what i can do to fix this problem?? Thanks Jay G.

The color wheel is either defective or needs to be re indexed.

Is it possible to have only the red tint projector lamp replaced on 61" projector Samsung tv


No. This is a DLP TV. It gets it's color by a color wheel. If color seems to drift across screen or there is a loud-ish whining noise from back of TV that you can here clear across a room, then this color wheel may be bad. They wear out.

Samsung hlr6167wx A noise like fan winding down started occuring , like spinning whurring sound then the picture went out. I replaced the bulb 3 years ago. Can this be a bad fan and a bad bulb too. All...


if this "whirring" sound was making a vibration on the TV, there is a good chance that the one that needs to be replaced is the color wheel. When the color wheel fails it also triggers the signal for replacing the lamp. This is another common issue with Samsung DLP's.

In order to replace the wheel follow this picture guide:

Colors are flashing green and yellow and red


Try a power cycle and unhook all your devices from the back. Plug all them in separately and see which is causing the issue. Otherwise, call Samsung and see if you still have warranty on the tv

Samsung hln617w dlp tv won't turn on. Red temp


Had similar problem. Thought it was the lamp. Examined old lamp but it appeared to be good. Ordered a new one anyway. Changed the lamp but the TV screen would not come on. It would make the usual noise as it was going to come on normally but it would cycle 3 times & then turn off. The LED lights in the front panel would indicate a defective lamp. Then read about the ballast. Changed the ballast & still same problem. Tried starting the TV without the lamp installed & noticed that the color wheel did not spin. Removed old color wheel & discovered it was broken. This appears to be the cause of all of my problems. I wish I new earlier of the test-turn on the TV without the lamp being installed & check to see if the color wheel is spinning. Would have save money on the lamp & ballast.

I am missing red color on my samsung 61" dlp tv


I bought this tv March of 2008, and Feb 2009 light engine went out, confirmed by TV repairman. Went through samsung directly.. WORST COMPANY EVER!!! No longer make this part, took 6 months to tell me that, after order went to 4 different repair companies. Finally, they offered $1770 to replace tv.. and weeks later, received a call that it was not approved so they offerred $1200. Still waiting for this check.. paid $2399 for this tv, still owe $1100!!! Samsung has worst customer service ever and do not stand behind their products. If you find replacement part for this tv, please post.. the part is expected to cost $850 and has to be professionally installed at $300.
