Question about Samsung HL-R6167W 61" HDTV
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. 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. 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.
I had exact the same problem on my HLR6167W and read the suggestions here the past Sunday. There is another suggestion that the cable connecting the DMD board and the light engine could be the problem. I opened the back of the TV and took out the DVD board (just a few screws and several cables) and checked . No sign of burned wire or damage was seen. I reinstalled the DMD borad and made sure tight connections of all the cables yesterday. Miraculously the HD channels came back. I rechecked all the cables (tighten or loose a little bit as needed) and all cannels came back. I don't know exactly which cable was the problem and is not going to find out. I just want to share this so anyone who has the same problem can try this cheapest approach first. The TV is still working well as I am typing this message.

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.
