Question about Samsung HL-R6167W 61" HDTV

4 Answers

I have a SAMSUNG DLP model HLR6167w with a problem.

I have a SAMSUNG DLP model HLR6167w with a problem.
I just changed the light hoping this would fix the problem. When the problem first occurred, I could barely make out the picture, and it was very green and jumpy (but I could still see spider man on TV with the 5 big vertical lines). I called tech supportand they said unplug the TV and plug it in after about 5 minutes. I did that and now it went from bad to worse. No picture at all. I have whiteand black static on the screen that also has a green tint. I have 5vertical evenly spaced lines. The big 3 inch lines consist of about 10skinny lines. I can put the TV on air-antenna, Satelite, DVD, NindendoWii, and the greenish static follows all components. When I hit "menu"on the TV remote, all menu options are crystal clear. Set-up, channel,sound, etc...all perfect picture...Just a problem with the actualpicture on all components. Please help if possible.

I have a 60" Samsung DLP HLR6167w
I turned it on again last night and I found more details.
The attached picture is what it looks like when it's on. It looks like that for 15 seconds then freezes. When it freezes I can't turn the TV off/on nor navigate through the TV's menu (it freezes also) Then the screen goes black like it's turned off. I look at the back of the TV and the light bulb seems to still be on.

You need to do an aggressive reset on the TV. This solved problem completely for me. You must unplug the TV when it is on. Repeat this several times until the TV is jolted back into the factory default settings. The issue is actually with the programming I believe. The clue was that the display worked 100% perfect in HDMI mode, and the problem only existed in the cable setting, no matter if wires were attached or not.

Again, do an aggressive reset to the TV by unplugging it several times while it is on. It may not register the reset at first because after all, the actual problem is a programming issue and it's having trouble recognizing commands in the first place.

Good luck!!

Samsung tv shuts off and lights blink on off


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

White spots on samsung DLP tv


DLP/mirror chip is going bad. A common problem on Sammy TVs after 2-3 years. Chip is user replaceable (try samsungparts.com or ebay) for about $150-200. Sammy was (last year) repairing the DLP White Spot problem for free. You MUST talk to ECR (executive customer service) to even think about getting that consideration--forget the standard CS people. Don't know if they are still covering this out of warranty in 2010.

Samsung Model HLR6167W


Does the TV appear to be cycling on and off, like its attempting to boot up? Or, does it just not come on at all? Don't miss the lamp door interlock switch. Many Samsung DLPs have tempermental door switches. Try re-installing the door or manually hold the switch in the closed postion and try to power it up. If the lamp comes on and stays lit, you've found your problem.

I have a DLP Samsung HL-R6167w and it's not working


I had a bad digital board also. I went to parts.com to order a new part way cheaper than from repair service. the only problem I had was that after installation which is super easy 4 cables to unplug and replug. when I turned on the TV the picture came in upside down, not good. no one would give me the code to flip the screen as it is in a hidden menu, well after months of searching the web I found it!! It works for most all newer Samsung TV's. turn the TV off, hit mute then 182 and then power on button on the remote. the "hidden" menu will pop up and you scrool down to h-flip and flip the screen. I don't recommend messing with any of the other setting as you could likely really jack up the TV but at least you can fix it for a 3rd of the cost you would spend otherwise.
