Question about Samsung HL-R6167W 61" HDTV

3 Answers

Left side of television just started having a shadowing problem?

On my Samsung Dlp Television, HLR-6167W TV, this morning I turned the tv on and on the right side of the flat panel screen, starting at the bottom and working its way all the way to the top was a shadow.  The shadow starts approx.2 inches in width at the bottom left hand side of the screen, and consistently gets wider as it moves up the same side of the tv until reaching the top left side of the tv. (The same side the shadow started from)  At the top the shadow is approx. 4 or 5 inches wide.  If I look at the television it looks like a small V shadowed in.  I can see the picture behind the shadow.  But it is a extremely dark shadow.  (UNACCEPTABLY DARK) so the picture behind it is barely visible yet still there.  Almost as if the tv picture fell of kilter to the right, but the pictureis still seen underneath this weird shadowed line.  Impossible to burn in, I THINK, in the design that the darkness is in.  Is it simply a new light bulb that needs replaced.  If I pull 4 X 3 down or anything that isn't 16 X 9 its picture perfect.   When the tv's off the shadow is gone, so its not on the screen itself.  Please help.... Thank you.

    We have the EXACT same problem, however, ours is on the right side of the screen. Our Samsung is only about 14 months old (we are looking for our paperwork to see if we bought the extended warranty - hopefully we did!). We are so disappointed...the tv has been great up until this point.

The problem is with the light tunnel. It is available from the parts sections of the Best Buy website for less than $50.

I have the same problem and was told by a technician that I need to replace the light engine. Probably around $ 700.00.

If you have not replaced the lamp, that is the first thing I would do. If the lamp has been replaced, the colorwheel is the next culprit. Hope this helps

My samsung 55" DLP television


I looked up how to fix red horizontal lines on a Philips flat-screen tv. It turns out it needed the Y buffer upper replaced. I am not sure if this problem would be similar but it might help. I am also searching how to fix a fuzzy screen on a DLP tv. Hope you find what you need.

make sure you do not have anything sitting on the top of this tv. I have seen this on my tv by just gently putting pressure with my finger on top the screen starts to curve up at the edges.

50? Samsung DLP TV Model #HLR-5067W


Did you use an original replacement lamp or an aftermarket replacement? From the price you give, it sounds like an aftermarket lamp, which are notoriously buggy and the problem may be with the lamp. If not, the lamp driver is your next likely culprit. It is also called a lamp power supply or lamp ballast.
