Question about Samsung HL-S6187W 61 in. HDTV

1 Answer

Samsung hl-s6186 screen flickers and sometimes goes green

On occassion my screen flickers, sometimes it gets better and other times it causes the whole picture to turn kind of green and the tv starts humming very loudly. The only way to stop the humming and the green is to unplug and then plug the tv back in. Is there a way to stop this, or is my tv slowly going bad? What kind of problem does this sound like? It's covered under warranty with Best Buy, but I don't want to take it in unless is screwed.

The humming will usally come from the color wheel(one of the only moving parts), which is part of the light engine. If the tv is starting to get a green picture that is a sign that the light engine is on it's way out.

DLP HL-R5067W


Your model has a maximum resolution of 720p. What you might want to do is make sure that both your cable/sat box and game stations are outputting at no more than 720 resolution. It's easy to assume that all HDTVs may accept a higher signal, and while they might, some of the scene changes or handshakes may make that operation cause the symptoms you describe.
