Question about Samsung HLR5067WX 50" Rear Projection HDTV

Samsung HL5067W power cycling

When I turn on the TV, the green lamp LED flashes a few times, the picture comes on fine, for about 10 seconds or so, then the TV turns off, then the starting sound chimes, and the picture comes back on for 10 seconds of so, and it powers off again and repeats. I have to unplug it to power it off. Any ideas? Thank you.

    I thought that was it. Unfortunately, I was giving it crumpets. I'll try the scones.

I am having this same problem - power cycling - exactly as described. The lamp turns on and the picture looks good for the 5-10 seconds it is on (this makes me question all the comments I've seen online saying it is a bad lamp that needs replaced).

Problems started with green lines on analog channels and erratic behavior that included freezing and shutting off occasionally. Now, it is to the point where I get 5-10 seconds of picture, then it freezes and starts the power cycle 5-6 times, chiming every time it automatically turns on, before finally remaining off. I have removed the back, dusted off fans/components/etc, supplied additional fan for airflow, and made sure the blue switch in the back is down. Still having the same problem! Any help is appreciated!!

*My tv and I were on pretty good speaking terms leading up to these problems and I have it on a strict diet that has always worked. Any other suggestions?

    Ok. I went through the standard warranty process, which means they sent me a replacement bulb saying that was the issue. No luck...same power cycling. Finally they sent a tech out who took a look and said he needed to replace the digital board. So, 2 weeks later, the part came in and the repairman came back out to install it. Voila, I have a tv again. (This is the same fix the supervisor at the call center said it needed months ago...before they sent me the lamp)



    So...I would recommend having the tv's digital board checked. Especially if your tv is still under warranty, as it cost me $0.00 to fix. Chances are, they are still going to start by having you replace the lamp. Good luck!

It's a well known fact that Korean televisions are not fond of crumpets. I think that was probably the first warning in your Samsung manual.

It's simple. Your TV does not like you. Perhaps you need to speak kindly to it before you force it to watch BBC for hours. Buy it a scone.

Hi,
If lamp has not been replaced in tv in last 2-3 years, then replace the lamp as symptom shows that lamp has reached to end of its working life span and causing that problem.

Problem for Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55WF655. Hello,


5 times Red LED blinks means Lamp Driver Error. (KDF-55WF655)
2 possible reasons, either Lamp is gone or Ballast Supply got bad.
Replace lamp first, in most cases it solved the problem.
How old is this TV and did you replaced lamp recently?
Thanks.

TV Picture Goes Black


I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions
