Samsung DLT red light issue, but new chip did not help. Can't Post

Hello folks,

I am hoping you may be able to help. I have a Samsung HLT6187SAX/XAA – last week the red was gone.

After looking at other folks issue/resolutions… I bought a red chip. BP07-00029A

I removed the old one and installed the new one today. No difference in screen color. Drats…

the engine area/heat fins etc... did not look to have too much dust on them... some but not excessive.

Other than the chip… could you recommend something else for me to try?

Any insight would be appreciated

Thanx

Do either 'light'?

Original failing may have caused drive to fail. Replacing LED but not fixing drive results in SAME symptom.

yes, the blue and green are present. Is the drive where the LED plugs into?
Is the drive something I could test, or does it need to go to a shop that has the tools for it.

Honestly it sounds like the mainboard or the dvi cable. I've replaced them before on your model dlp and resolved the no red issue.

I'll try the DVI cable. Is it a universal cable or specific to the samsung model?

Are you trying to find it on the television or online? Looking at the back of the television the mainboard is bottom far left. The cable is coming off of the mainboard and attaches to the light engine. When I get to the shop I will take a photo of the cable.

Silly question but just to be sure. You have a hlt6187s not a hlt6189s? The one in our shop now is a 89s and does not have a dvi cable. Just want to be sure.. as I don't want you or anyone for that matter to spend on unnecessary components. I guess my question is are you sure your tv has the dvi cable? If so I can help out with the cable.
