Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV
Heres the scenerio. when the set is off the standby/temp indicator on the power button is lit. when you press the power button the lamp light blinks once, then the temp/standby light blinks once, then the lamp light will continually blink. the bulb is lit in the back and its super bright so im sure the bulb isnt the problem. after a minute of the lamp light flashing the set will eventually shut off. usually when this happens it will eventually turn on and work after cycling the set on and off, except this time its been like this for over 2 days now, and I can't get the set to come on. Now i have noticed when it is dark in the room, while the lamp indicator lite is blinking, you can see a vary faint "glow" to the picture screen, if this helps troubleshoot anything?
So far I have confirmed that the color wheel is working.
I've confirmed that the bulb is lit.
I've confirmed that the switch on the back access door for the lamp service door is working properly.
I've confirmed that the thermostat mounted to the bulb housing works.
So what is the next likely culprit on this piece of garbage that is only 2.5 years old?
I have a solution for The United States of America! "If We Don't Make It, We Don't Need It".
Personally, I believe if we went back to actually manufacturing things in this country and stopped importing everything, a lot of these problems would STOP!
Think about it America!

I am a fellow HL-R5067WAX/AAW purchaser. I purchased my 50" Samsung in Dec '06. I did not have a problem until this year. It seems that the lamps or the internal mechanism last for only about two years or so then its more money out of your pocket to repair it. I purchased this tech " DPL" vs Plasma because of the price and the low manitanance e.g. replacement lamp every two years or so. I called up to purchase a replacement lamp $164.00 dollars and did replace the old burnt lamp but 2 -3 week later this lamp burnt out also. Samsung subsidiary J&J International unit - E located in Fairfield NJ then sent me free of charge a replacement for that replacement which burnt our w/i 3 weeks. Spoke to a local TV tech who said there has been alot of problems with this model and repairs are costly maybe better off replacing the TV. J&J sent me replacement lamps # BP96-01073A instead of factory part # BP96-01394A does this make a difference the"01073A" lamp is slightly smaller??? Tried contacting Samung corporate but did not have the reciept of purchase or the warrantee that I purchased for this TV so here I am - can any one advise? Please email - email@example.com
