Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

Hi I have a RCA DLP rear projection television and I think the bulb was jarred by me moving the tv from one room to the other. I tried tightening the screws but it still does not work. The tv turns on and I see the picture, 5 seconds after that it cuts off, a red light blinks 5 times, then the picture comes back on, then starts all over again.

OmIm trying to figure out why my tv will not come on. I was watching it one night and it just went out . I did not think nothing else of it so . I left out the room about 30min later I started to smell...


First replace bulb to make sure it's not the bulb. If it's not the bulb it is most likely the light engine. My suggestion would be don't invest in the light engine. Goes for about $500 plus for a re-built one and warranty is only 3-6 months on it. I purchased one and it went again in 4 months.

Please don't invest in any more dlp tv's. I learned the hard way.

Samsung HL-S5087W DLP rear projection TV keeps shut off and won't stay on longer than 30 seconds.


your bulb has reached the end of its life (at least this is what your tv thinks) you need to replace the bulb and or make the think you did. (there is a reset in the service menu for the bulb)
