Question about Samsung HLN507 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Hi, my DLP projection tv won't turn on. This have been a progressively worsening problem. First about 1yr ago it would turn on but display only vertical black and white bars.. Fixed that easily by turning on and off again. Then when I powered it up you would hear color wheel spin but nothing would happen.
So I repaced the lamp. that seemed to work for a while but now absolutely no responce when I try to power up with remote or with power switch on the side.
I've tried to unplug the unit and then plug back in after >30min but now that doesn't work. I've tried two different outlets (one with other components) and switched that around. No response.
the unit is 4.5yr old and purchased new.
I got frustrated with the tv and (after advice from a friend) banged on it somewhat gently with my hand. Now it turns on! My friend claims that their downstairs tv acts the same way and a few gentle taps do the trick every time. Go figure.
I'm not completely satisfied with this solution and don't think it will work forever, but so far so good.
