Re: HLR6167WAX/XAA Digital board problems

Well, well, well! For the first time in several weeks, my HLR5067W powered on normally and is working perfectly.

I came across this thread at the end of August. I'd applied, and reapplied, the temporary fix, but couldn't even get back to the green plaid problem. Mostly, the set wouldn't even power on. Finally just left it plugged in but quit trying (watched the bedroom TV). Then after about 3 weeks of no attempts whatsoever, I first did the service mode power on (mute,1,8,2,power) and, voila!, the power on chime sounded (sweet music) and the picture came in clear! After first photographing the settings, powered off then pressed power on and it still worked! Yippee! OK, OK, I know it probably won't last. But it's made it through the first half of Monday Night Football! Cross your fingers that I'll get more than a couple of weeks out of it. (I've already made my replacement TV decision.)

I still don't have a strong confidence that replacing the digital board will cure the ills, but I think this proves that I didn't bungle something else while applying the fix.

To bad you can't find someone local that has the same kind of tv with the same kind of digital board to see if that takes care of your issues. butch many people have had the same issue you do. after replacing the digital board their tv's work again.

When you have the green plaid screen your menu showed up on the screen correct? and if you tuned in a HDTV channel the video went to normal or doesn't look as bad. and if you use the hdmi part on the digital board you don’t have the green plaid screen or doesn't look as bad. but if you use the tuner on a channel that isn't HDTV the screen looks green plaid. also if you use the composit line in ( red blue green )on the analog board you get the green plaid screen also. and if you use the red and white audio inputs with the yellow input you get the green plaid screen.

these are all issues with the digital board. we have seen them many times. the digital board hooks to the analog board with 3 cables. the tuner for sdtv is also built into the digital board. and isn't even part of the analog board. if it was a light engine issue the menu's wouldn't show up correct. they also would have the green plaid look.

you could buy the board from www.samsungparts.com and after you return the old one for a core charge it only cost you 188 dollars. if it doesn't fix the tv you could turn around and sell the new digital board on ebay. there is one seller that has them on there right now for 269 dollars. you could list the digital board for what you paid or maybe a little more and get your money back. You wouldn't be out any money if it doesn't fix your issue. but i wouldn't be afraid to bet that it would fix the tv.

Order the digital board and you won't be sorry. Those were my symptoms to a tee and a new board cured my set and was really quite easy to install. I will be sending my old core back tomorrow for credit. They make that process easy as well with mailing label included. Cheers!

I agree, it sounds like a bad digital board.

Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Re: HLR6167WAX/XAA Digital board problems

I also posted this on another topic but this topic is more active.

If i wouldn't of fried the digital board by using a paint stripping heat gun. I would of tried the video the 2nd video on this web page. It looks like the metal of a tea light candel. http://www.ifitjams.com/2008/08/refl...rocessors.html looks like they had the same issue with a BGA chip on apple and ibm motherboards. The alcohol kludge only requires a penny worth of alcohol and a tin to put it in. I guess it gets the solder hot and melts it.

one of you may want to try this but it may mess it up or it may fix it.
