Hello all! I'm relatively new to this forum, and am very pleased to have found it and know that there are others experiencing the same problems I am. I am having some problems with my Samsung DLP 61" rear projection TV, the model # is HLR6168W. The warranty is expired and as of late I've noticed the 2-3" wide tint difference (seems darker like a shadow) going down the left side of the screen. But more importantly, I'm having a problem with half the screen going black (literally) after 1-2 hours of use. The other half just continues on and works fine. So I have to turn the TV off count to 30 or so turn it back on and the screen returns to normal. That just continues to happen. Also, it is always the right side of the screen. I thought I read something about a light engine being the problem or part of a board?? Does anyone have any ideas?? I noticed something on the board with respect to Samsung extending the service warranty on the Light engine or something??? I would totally appreciate it. Thanks. Rene'
