Question about Samsung HLP4663W 46" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

TV will not turn on, Have three blinking lights, lamp won't turn on, color wheel isnt spinning.

Question about my Samsung DLP HLP4663W TV will not turn on.
Three blinking lights, Already replaced lamp and ballast. Well I checked the color wheel and it wasn't spinning when I push thepower button. I checked and the color wheel is getting power.I removedthe color wheel and when you spin it by hand it has a dry metal to metal sound, but it still spins freely.
Does anyone think the color wheel is the problem?

LED light blinking 6 times and TV won't turn on


When you turn on the power button listen to the back of the TV, you should hear a motor with a high pitch spin up (the color wheel) and then the lamp should attempt to fire. The lamp should make a sparking sound and if it does your lamp is most likely defective. The part number for the lamp is on a sticker on the sode that will say "Lamp Code" on it and will be something like BP96-****

Samsung hln617w dlp tv won't turn on. Red temp


Had similar problem. Thought it was the lamp. Examined old lamp but it appeared to be good. Ordered a new one anyway. Changed the lamp but the TV screen would not come on. It would make the usual noise as it was going to come on normally but it would cycle 3 times & then turn off. The LED lights in the front panel would indicate a defective lamp. Then read about the ballast. Changed the ballast & still same problem. Tried starting the TV without the lamp installed & noticed that the color wheel did not spin. Removed old color wheel & discovered it was broken. This appears to be the cause of all of my problems. I wish I new earlier of the test-turn on the TV without the lamp being installed & check to see if the color wheel is spinning. Would have save money on the lamp & ballast.

Samsung DLP model#HLP4663w.green hue on the screen,what is the solution to my problem.


Hi,It sounds like it could be the color wheel or DMD.The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will get color distortion ,black and white picture and sometimes you will hear humming noises. The DMD is another possibility.This is how it works: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp1.htm Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jr_9A5Xd2Q One simple test is to display menu and if it's affected then most like will be an issue w the DMD board.Found the complete set with color wheel and DMD included here: http://www.discount-merchant.com/SAMSUNG-30407272050-Light-Engine-w-Color-Wheel-p/1139314.htm Have a blessed one!

No picture on my samsung 61" dlp.


The color wheel if bad enough, will cause the lamp not to light. If the lamp is truly bad, you can't usually tell by just looking at it unless of course it is broken.

If you have verified the votages are there at the color wheel and its not spinning the color wheel is most likely defective. the sound you hear when spinning by hand is most likely the bearing but that shouldnt stop it from spinning. but as i said if the supply voltage is present but it still wont spin. the color wheel must be defective.

My DLP TV wont turn on.


As part of the power up sequence on the Samsung HLP-4336W the lamp isn't turned until timing pulses are detected from the color wheel. The color wheel motor is powered through the flat brown four conductor ribbon cable and the timing pulses are detected over the the three conductor ribbon table.

YOU PROBABLY NEED A DMD BOARD. THE COST OF THE BOARD IS $900 . YOU CAN GET A LIGHT ENGINE FOR $700 THAT HAS A NEW LAMP, COLOR WHEEL, BALLAST AND DMD.
WHAT A DEAL . THERE IS A $400 CORE ON IT SO YOU WILL HAVE TO SEND BACK YOUR NEW BALLAST AND LAMP TO GET THE CREDIT BACK.
WHEN I GIVE A QUOTE ON THESE SETS FOR REPAIR MOST OF THE TIME IT EXCEEDS THE VALUE OF GETTING A NEWER BETTER SET.
