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.

Do I have a bad dmd board?


Hi Dave I am Vortash if you replaced the Colour wheel and the problem went but then has returned I think it may just be a bad connection on the board check the ribbons from the lcds are secure and the plug slide that holds them in is all the way closed , also check the rest of the circuit for dry joints , I dont think this is as bad as you fear .. Regards Vortash

Samsung hlp4667 only get a picture with HD input.


is there anything else hooked up to your tv other than cable or satellite? if no other components (dvd, vhs, etc) then you will get a snowy screen because the other inputs are for other components that are hooked up. a picture is showing on the HD input because you have cables hooked into that input.

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.
