Just replaced my bulb on my 6187 over the weekend only 7711hrs on it. After careful installation of the new bulb i have light spots randomly on the screen. I'm guessing dust but not sure. Any suggestions on how to get rid of them?

Time for a lamp replacement again on my HL-S5687W. Last time I went with an offbrand and it didn't last near as long. Where can I get a solid OEM bulb with housing?

Hey guys,

hl-s6187 makes a loud noise when turning on and also when I change the picture settings (movie to custom to standard, to dynamic). A sound like it is a bad plumbing problem coming from my basement . The big thing is that it flickers dark to bright every once in a while. I brighten the setting on dynamic to compensate, but it really isn't ideal.

My current bulb only has about 6,000 hours on it, and like i said it flickers dark to light so I don't believe it has anything to do with the bulb. I believe there might be something going on with the color wheel or soemthing, but I am no expert. It has technically never stopped working, but I need to address this.

Any suggestions?

Please note, I probably won't do the repairs myself. We do have a repair center nearby (1/2 mile), BUT I have this fear they are going to give me the rigamaroll with respect to how much it might cost.

Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

theho1,

Guessing you have either fixed this or tossed the tv, but I thought I would post my experience with this issue.

Came back from short vacation to tv that would not turn on. When I plugged it in, it started making a high pitched fast beep noise shown in the video below. Only the lamp light would blink and then after a few seconds the standby light would come on and the process repeated. After doing a lot of research with no real answer, I decided to take a shot on the color wheel as the problem. The TV had been making a high pitched whinning noise for some time, and I had read one post stating the tv might not power up if the a color wheel issue was found by the controller.

I ordered a new wheel from samungparts.com and spend a couple hours putting it in, although most of that time was cleaning up dust, what a mess inside. After reassembly, all is fixed! No more beeping, tv comes on and its quieter than its been in a long time.

Now I only have to decided if I will replace the cooling fans to make it even quiter.

Sad to see this forum is dying out, I guess most owners have moved on by now. I've used fixes and information found here in this thread to fix several problems with this tv. I keep kinda hoping the next problem will be fatal so I have an excuse to get a new one, but oh well, I can't just let it die.

Hope this post helps someone, Thanks to all the pevious posters who helped me.

I did not see an update from Black | Dragon as to what this beeping was or how to fix it. Does anyone know what this might be?

Hope this help to solve your problem.

I used this video for reference to change the Color Wheel (different model):

I have had a HLS6187WX/XAA for 6 years or so. It has worked great and I have had no problems....till now.

Due to Comcast's last update to the boxes in our area our HDMI input on the TV is not jiving well with the HDMI out on the cable box / DVR. We are getting tiling and all sorts of DVR issues. When I moved from the HDMI to the Components the issues went away but now I have a problem.

Currently we have the following setup on the TV

Inputs - AV1 - Wii, AV2 - PS, Component 1 - Cable box, Component 2 - DVD / Surround Combo, HDMI 1 - Cable Box
Output - AV out - Surround Sound

The problem is when I set the TV to Component 1 (Cable Box) I get no sound out put to my AV out.

The AV out works with the AV inputs and the HDMI inputs but any sound incoming via the Components will not go out via the AV out.

Hope all of that makes sense.

Now, is this normal?

And before you ask, I cannot run my audio from the cable box to the surround sound as it only has one input and the wife & kids like hearing the Wii on surround.

Guys, I was watching the Heat-Knicks series just now and I heard a LOUD pop and the picture went out! I assume the bulb died, but it was such a shocking event! I turned the television off ASAP and when I attempted to turn it back on (just to test everything), I heard a nasty grinding sound and I could smell smoke in the room. I immediately killed the power strips near the set to turn everything off.

How should I proceed without injuring myself? Should I let everything settle for an hour or two?

If it is the bulb, I'm really surprised it died already. The picture was in no way dim like the last time it went. I had all my picture settings turned down too, to maximize the bulb's longevity.

Just unplug the TV, you won't hurt yourself.

Pull the lamp, it likely blew. Hopefully the grinding sound was just the ballast trying to fire a blown lamp.

Don't know what the smoke smell is.

As long as it has cooled off you should be fine with opening the back of the TV.
The grinding sound could be from broken glass getting caught in something, probably a cooling fan, hopefully not the color wheel. I would carefully examine everything in there and use a vacuum to clean all the glass out.

The bulb in the TV is either on or off so changing the brightness does not dim the bulb or prolong the life of the bulb. The best thing to do for maximum bulb life is reduce the number of on/off cycles to a minimum.
Any idea how many hours were on the bulb?
post #21223 of 21377
No idea, but the when the first bulb died, the set had around 8000 hours on it. That's pretty good I think. When I boot into the service menu after the replacement arrives, I'll get you a more firm answer/estimate.

So the bulb life is not tied to the picture brightness settings? Can the DMD completely modulate the brightness independent of how brightly the bulb is showing?

Yes, calibrate your TV to accuracy or taste. You won't appreciably prolong the life of the lamp though calibration. As typ44q stated, power cycles contribute to longevity, or lack thereof.

Time for a new lamp/housing for my HLS-5687W (about every 2.5-3 years).

Amazon has several Phillips branded BP96-01472A lamp/housing parts with prices ranging from $99.95-109.95.

The part numbers are all the same, some from the SAME vendor, using the SAME picture of the part. The ONLY difference is the TV Model # specified in the description.

http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-HL-S50...326292&sr=1-20

http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-HL-S56...326292&sr=1-10

Looks hokey to me. Charging a few more bucks for the SAME part based on the model of the TV.

Also NONE of the Amazon listings mention a warranty. Discount Merchants price is $109.90 is higher but the decription includes a 180 day warranty....

http://www.discount-merchant.com/Sam...a_lamp_enc.htm

Any comments would be appreciated... I am tempted to get the $99.99 offer... because all the offers look like the same duck!

FYI,

I contacted one Amazon vendor (Projector Nova) of the BP96-01472A (Philips) lamp/housing assemblies regarding the warranty. Below is their reply:

--- Original message ---

What is the warranty period on the following product:

Samsung HL-S5687W HLS5687W Lamp with Housing BP96-01472A
ASIN: B002Y0MSU4

Thank you!

----------------------------------------------------------
Since this is an OEM (Philips) lamp, it comes with a 6 month manufacturer's warranty.

Regards,

Projector Nova

After running about 1hr or little more, it starts making Static sound. Initially, low frequency but that goes up like fire crackers and will be quiet.

If turned off for 10 mins or more, sound will come back as normal sound.
But static will come back at some point and sound will go away. It is annoying to turn-off and on to go around the problem and can't watch more than 2hrs (may be that is good for my personal life).

Any one has or had problem like this? any suggestion or solution? Is it repairable by DIY or has to be done by repairman?

I am tired of SAMSUNG DLP TV (had White/Black spot issue before).
Looks like poor quality built.

While I sympathize with your particular issue I personally wouldn't trade my Samsung for the world. I have owned mine since Feb '07 without issue and it has such a beautiful picture!!

May be you are lucky one. I have know my in-law has white-spot issue with his DLP and his TV is newer than mine. I bought in Dec-06.

Do you have same model (HLS-5086 DLP)?

Just replaced my bulb as well (3rd bulb). Picture as good as new but I get to second guess my settings all over again!

I have a calibration DVD from CC and the Digital Video Essentials DVD but I don't think either get the Contrast and Brightness just right. Still seems to require an "eye of the beholder" tweaking....

Just remember to give the new lamp about 200 hours break-in time before calibrating/tweaking. They settle down after about 200 hrs.

Roger that...

Despite having calibration DVDs with the last bulb I resorted to using Eliab's Starter settings and tweaked from there. I think the set's (5687w) dynamic black (and possibly other automatic settings) make adjusting to a calibration DVD difficult. Or is it just my imagination and poor eyesight?

I recall that being a problem for me when I first got the set, then I discovered you need to go into the service menu and set both the gamma and cinema gamma to "0". Then, eliab's settings. The default settings of 5 and 4 respectively made it impossible to get black levels correct.

Thanks for the tip. I'll double check my settings as well.

This new bulb is exceptionally bright and gamma/brightness/contrast seem a bit wack.

Just wait about 200 hrs before you make any changes, otherwise, you'll just be chasing your tail.
