Question about Samsung HL-R6167W 61" HDTV
I have a picture but the tv will periodically turn itself off during the day and then flash the 3 blinking lights...anyone know what the problem could be. We can fix it ourselves if we knew for sure what it is.

You have a bad color wheel that is broken. To get the right one you must have the model number and the version code. The version code is on one side of the TV at the back. Will be two letters and two numbers. Installing one can be a bit of a pain if you have never taken one out and replaced. You have to pull back the light engine to see the color wheel. The light engine is the main box like module that has the projector lense. A screw(s) holds in the color wheel and has a wire plug to it as well. Do a search on Google or Ebay etc. to find the part to purchase. Again the version code is very important! Before buying I advise that you take the color wheel out to inspect it for damage. When installing the new color wheel DO NOT touch the wheel itself.
