Question about Samsung HL-P6163W 61" TV

1 Answer

I replaced the color wheel on my HLP6163, it was broken. The lamp would come on for a second before I replaced the color wheel and now it wont come on at all. Nothing. I hear it start and the lamp and the standby on the main power blink. Do you think it also needed a new lamp? I hear that it is good to have an extra one on hand. I love my t.v. had it 5 yrs with no problems till now.

Check two things:

First: when you replaced the color wheel examine the orange flat ribbon cable that plugs into it. It is very easy to put it in backwards. contacts on it should face rear of set--this will if placed wrong cause No lamp.

Second: make sure little blue lever switch is engaged(you cannot power set up with back off as the switch prevents set from working if lever is not engaged.

Hitachi LCD HGTV has lot color. Replaced lamp. What Now?


If has lost color on more than one source( just to verify it's not a bad cable or hook up) it's probably a broken color wheel. You can usually see the color wheel when you remove the lamp. There should be a glass looking disc right where the lamp would shine, the wheel will have segments with different colors.

Just changed color wheel on my samsung dlp now it wont power on


First, the color wheel's 4 pin, copper connector which plugs into the DMD pcb should have the copper facing you as you look into the rear of the TV. Second, be sure you trip the lamp door switch in a closed position. Usually, you can just wrap the wht/blu wire around it, so the TV thinks the lamp door is closed. Try these and listen for the color wheel to spin up. If it does not, the lamp will NOT light. It's built that way. You may have a bad color wheel... which I have personally experienced in the past.

Ballast Lamp provide back light in DLP TV and if its bad / broken TV wont power up. If lamp is weak, dark or less bright picture will come in screen. Color wheel is responsible for colors in picture and if its broke, TV wont power up and common problem with color wheel is high pitch noise while it spins.

Changed samsung hlp6163 colorwheel now all the colors are off alot of blue


There is a place for a jumper on your DMD (the module that the color wheel plugs in to) If the jumper is there remove it. If there is no jumper install one. On later models the pins are gone but solder pads are still there, solder it. Some wheels have air bearing and others have fluid bearing. You really should buy a service manual for that set. New color wheels sometimes come with CCA values that you must change in the service menu
Good Luck

Lamp light turns red


Yes this is the signal for a bad lamp. Other things can cause this. 1. Look at the new lamp. make sure it still looks good. not broken with little glass pieaces in it. 2. When you turn on the tv, put your ear to the lower back part of the tv near the middle. Listen for the start up of the color wheel (a low high pitch sound only at the start up of the motor). If this is good you will here a ticking sound only if the lamp dose not light.

Now with all this info. If the lamp lights (as seen from the back of the set) and goes out after a few seconds and you did not here the color wheel spin up, the color wheel is bad.

If you here the color wheel spin up and no ticking sound, the Ballast is bad.

The ballast part no. 939P978010

The color wheel is not avialable from Mits. You will have to replaced the light engine. It cost to much. Just buy a new tv.
