Samsung DLP HLN507W - Remote Not Working After CW replace

I just replaced the screeching color wheel in my DLP by following this guide. When done, the TV seems to work fine except the remote control does not seem to function at all. The controls on the side of the TV operate everything as normal. The remote has fresh batteries and I can see the light on it come on so I know the remote is making the attempt.

I suspect either a wire was connected erroneously or something came loose while I was futzing with the other components. Before I rip this bad boy apart again () does anyone have any suggestions on which wire or components I should focus my efforts on? I appreciate any help (yes, I googled it).

You are a brave man, that job is a lesson in Tia engeneering. Assuming the batteries are phased right (don't laugh) the IR receiver connector inside the front panel gets hot and fails with time. The actual receiver positioning on Sammy has to be in just the right spot, you will know it when you see it. Test it before you put it all back together this time. Good ruck !

Can't test it without putting everything back. The wires won't reach if anything is pulled out even slightly and there are sensors to indicate whether all panels are closed.

I figured it out. Without pulling out the guts again, I was able to poke around and see the wire that became disconnected and plugged it back in. All works now. It makes me nervous to poke around in TV's. I know there are some components that will kill you if touched and I don't always know which parts those are. I was cool the first time because the TV had been off and unplugged for about 4 months.

Good deal, next time the thing fails, replace it with a new monitor.

The goofy part is, I already replaced it with a plasma and I am giving it to my brother in law. I don't like giving things to people if they aren't in good order.

This is a long shot, since your post was over 6 years ago. I just replaced my color wheel and have the same problem that you described. I've searched the internet for a solution (which is how I got here), but have only found several others with the same problem, but no specifics on how to fix it. If you're still out there, do you remember specifically how you fixed it?

I did a bunch of R&D at Texas Instruments building the chips that make the DLP possible. Fun stuff! Sadly, Plasma beat it to market and was thinner from the get go.

If you have a Sammy HLN anything in 2016 I think you are wasting your time with it. The color wheel, JVC's light engine and most old video displays can't be easily fixed. I have a warehouse of old electronics if you like to tinker.

Replacing a color wheel, DMP, even ballast resistor on a DLP takes some tech & guts. Parts as mentioned are getting scarce or NLA and when available can be iffy quality or very expensive. You see DLP's (Samsung & Mitsubishi mainly) on Craigslist "just needs a bulb..." Ya, right! :-)

My Panasonic 42" plasma from 2006, now in my college daughters apartment, still produces a very crisp, bright image. The 60" Samsung plasma in my living room allows me to skip crowded public theaters. If either one quits, they will simply be replaced, as it is not economically feasible to spend time or money screwing around when a replacement can be had for so little.

Smile THE answer for anyone out there searching

I had the same problem. Spent over 6 hours searching web via forums and YouTube videos and found several people with same problem but no mention of the solution. Didn't want to open it back up until I knew what I was looking for/at. Joined "JustAnswer.com" to ask an electronics "expert". Both "experts" were clueless and another waste of time. Finally found THE answer in a YouTube video posted by "Tesla500", entitled "DLP rear projection TV part 2". At the 2:11 minute mark in the video, he clearly points out the IR sensor location and corresponding connector. Armed with this knowledge, I opened the TV back up, saw the sensor wasn't connected, found the missing connector inside and put it back on without having to completely pull all the guts out of the unit again. Remote fully operational again. Hope this helps anyone out there that might be looking for the same solution.

I hated my old 46" Samsung DLP with an extraordinary passion. In fact, it turned me off from Samsung altogether. I haven't purchased on thing by that brand since.

Replaced it with a 42" Panasonic Plasma which is still going strong. It became a long-term loaner to my wife's cousin when we moved to a bigger place and put in a 58" Panasonic LED. Very pleased with the Panasonic products.

I never understood why people bought DLPs.

Then again our Samsung LCD, circa 2008, still works great and it was basically a random purchase because I wandered into Circuit City (RIP) that day.

I always owned Sonys and miss that brand. But we've had good luck with Samsung so far. We still have a 27" Sony CRT circa 1998 that the wife still watches. It's too heavy to drag to the curb so I haven't replaced it.

DLP was the next big thing, better than the traditional 3 gun rear projection turds available at the time. Digital and HDTV was evolving and manufacturers are always chasing technology.

Sony is still viable Beet, just get the XBR line.

I replaced the light bulb in my DLP before it gave up the ghost after 6 years. Went to Samsung plasma which is still going strong after 5 years. I will be selling it at the end of the year because we are moving. It will be replaced by a 60"-65" LED to hang on the wall.
