Question about Samsung HL-R6167W 61" HDTV
when we try to turn our tv on the green lamp light flashes. we can tell the lamp is on because the screen appears to light up, but just stays black. it will flash for about 45 sec.-1 min. then go off,but the screen will just stay black or sometimes the lamp goes off and the red standby/temp light will come on and stay on.
This will have to be narrowed down to a specific problem. I would try the easiest things first. First check the lamp. Is it bad or just starting to go bad or does it just need to be reseated with the ballast? If the ballast flickers when turning on your TV, then you will know it is the lamp that is not working or the ballast may need to be replaced. If that is not the problem next check to see if the color wheel is spinning or broken. If broken, it will need to be replaced. If not spinning it is the DMD board that is bad. The color wheel is plugged into the DMD board. If the DMD board is good it will spin the color wheel, that is what will start your lamp. When you lamp starts, you have your picture.

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.
