Samsung HLP6163W wont turn on

My dlp made a popping-crack sound and it shut down. I replaced the lamp and now the lights on the front show the lamp trying to turn on for about 6-8 seconds and then all three lights start flashing . There is a sound like the fans are on and a low deep hum while trying to turn on but nothing else. ANY HELP WOULD BE VERY APPRECIATED!!!. THANKS.

    We were watching the set when it made a shattering-crack sound and then went off. The lights were flashing for a defective lamp. We replaced the lamp but the TV still will not turn on and the defective lamp lights are still flashing.

    I have a big problem with my Samsung HLN617W 61 in. Rear Projection HDTV Television! It was made in 2004 in Mexico. I cannot turn it on--all the three lights are blinking! I hate to throw it away, so I replaced the lamp. But that makes no difference. I recently ordered a color wheel and decide to try it. I will let you guys know if it works. Anyway, I will never buy anything made by Samsung!

    Same exact problem as as VINCEM'S, but I have an HLP5063. As soon as TV is plugged in, it begins the loud humming, and sounds like some clicking. There is no picture. The only way to power off is to unplug it.

    From my research, it seems to be a color wheel problem, but if anyone can give more clarity, I would appreciate it greatly.

My TV turns off by itself. It is a Samsung HlP6163W. Service Model HLP6163WX/XAA. The two green lights flash at the same time. I think it is overheating the bulb. How do I fix it.

Lamps don't really last very long typically 1 to 3 years depending. You may just need to replace the lamp. A burner gap of a lamp expands as the lamp warms up. If the gap is too large due to age (normal usage) the lamp will fail to light or shut down once the expansion occurs. The solutions to either problem is to replace the lamp.

There are instructions to replace the lamp in the user's manual. The light comes up but if the lamp has now already several hours of use the resistance of the lamp increases and shut down the power supply of the lamp. Second, the lamp power supply could be bad too, but lets be optimistic and just replace the lamp first.
