Question about Samsung HL-R6167W 61" HDTV

1 Answer

Picture is green.

My Samsung is HL-F6167W is 2 years old. Recently, the picture is green on the cable. The DVD input also shows a green picture. But, the game input is OK and/or has a checker board apprearance. We powered the TV off to let it reset. OK for a while then the green picture was back. Heard a screeching noise but only for a short period. Replaced the lamp and the TV worked for about a day. Now the green picture is back on the cable and DVD picture. Game input seems to be OK. Also, the TV guide is perfect. I am being told by my closest service center (2 hours away) tech that I may need a color wheel unit. He said the cost is about $400-$800 with parts and labor. Two issues - (1) want to make sure this is the problem and (2) would like to replace myself. ANY SUGGESTIONS OR HELP IS APPRECIATED.

    I got the same problem. Checkered board. 2 or 3 years old. Vertical lines evenly spaced over the checkered board with a green static tint. All inputs have this and the TV's internal menu options are perfectly clear.

TV HAS GREEN HORZONITAL STRIPES


Check if this happens in analog inputs ( connect a DVD player or any other component uing RCA cables white,yellow,red ) then check if the bars are showing on digital unputs ( connect using HDMI cable )

if it is just an analog problem - replace analog board
if it is just a digital problem - replace digital board
if it is a problem with both -replace DMD board

How can i get the best picture out of my samsung while im playing a game


Good Day;
The best picture you can get ryanvo2 depends on the use of the TV's input capabilities. It also depends on the games outputs.
In today's world of electronics there are more options than in the past, so it depends on the age of your equipment.
So, let's look at the most five (5) options available; number (1)one being the worst and (5) five being the best:
1.) RF, radio frequency, direct cable or antenna input.
2.) Video input; yellow, red and white cables.
3.) S-Video input, some units may require additional audio cables.
4.) Composite Video, red, green & blue cables.
5.) THE BEST 'HDMI' cable, computer type.
ryanvo2 I hope this was helpful. I hope you have years of game playing enjoyment in front of you.
Good Luck, Big Irish

Too much green color


Problem solved. I tried playing DVD and the TV picture was fine. So I double-checked cable wires from cable box - one of the wires was loose (obviously it was the red color input). After tightening, the TV picture is good as new.

Most likely the digital board will have to be replaced. Not a cheap part, so you might concider using the component inputs for now if too expensive.
