Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV
Have a samsung 50" projection tv-works normal except piture in black and white only- all lights on front off- bulb replaced 1 year ago-heard color wheels shatter- if color wheel broken will it only have black and white? or do you have a solution?
The color wheel is not the problem. If the spinning color wheel is impaired in its RPMs it will cause picture distortion, not black and white picture. If the color wheel looses any of its color fins, like if it is broken, there will be a loud vibrating noise inside the tv which you did not mention. Also if the color wheel is broken and doesn't spin, the tv will not start up.
The likely problem is on the digital control board or the power supply and should be referred to a local repair shop for repair.
There is an outside chance that you will receive color if you experiment with using all of the different input ports to see if you can find one that will bring back color.
