Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

I have a Samsung TX-T3093WH slim fit TV. When I plug it in you can hear a clicking noise from the back of the set. No lights will come on and the TV will not turn on. It worked just fine for 14 months. Thoughts?

It could be something short on the main board and it needs to be checked.

    check out for blown fuse .this is mostly the culprit in this types of problems.

  • mmechanics Nov 14, 2008

    if the fuse is ok.then check out the power wire of the tv if that wire is cut some where or burnt somewhere the tv does get the current from the wire and remains OFF.

  • mmechanics Nov 14, 2008

    if the fuse ,the power wire is ok.as u said that u hear a click it is quite possible any of the capacitors or the ics are getting hot due to short circuit everytime u ON the tv and they r slightly bursting and that is not letting the tv to become ON.
    THE capacitors may be burned or bulged and can can be easily located on the main board.


    thanks.

SAMSUNG DLP SLIM 50" AFTER I TURN IT OFF IT WONT TURN BACK ON TILL 30 TO 50 MINS LATER THE THREE LIGHTS IN THE FRONT BLINK. iT ACTS LIKE ITS GONA TURN ON BUT IT DOESNT IT JUST MAKES THE NOISE AND FLASHING...


Chris,

I had the same problem. I bought my tv at Best Buy and my warranty included a new bulb for the lamp. They only last about 2 yrs or so depending on how much you watch the tv. You can also buy replacement bulbs online that don't cost too much. BUT, you will need to replace every couple of years. The things you listed are exactly what happens when the bulb goes out. Hope this helps!

I hear the fan almost non stop while the tv is on.


You have a bad color wheel. The color wheel is located in front of the lamp, as the light shines through it as it spins. It is made up of different colored segments of glass, and one of the segments has came loose and causing the vibrating humming noise. The reason I know it isn't a fan is because the fans will continue to run for about 30 seconds after the set is powered off. The click you hear is the relay cutting off the fans. The color wheel cuts off as soon as you press the power button to cut the set off. I've replaced many of these at our shop for the same problem.

My Samsung HLN617 DLP is now dark. 3 small lights in the small circular display come on for a few minutes. Is the bulb easily replaceable for a novice or should I take the set to a repair facility?

TV made a big popping sound, and then a crackling


Hi,do you hear any strange noises? If you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast.Here's the instructions to replace it :http://www.fixyourdlp.com/guides/samsung/bp47-00033a.php That crackling sound could be of the color wheel:The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will get color distortion ,black and white picture and sometimes you will hear humming noises. But if you don't hear any strange noises,tv is around 6000 hrs,2-4 yrs it could be time to replace the lamp.The lamp you need is BP9601073A you can find original here:http://www.discount-merchant.com/Samsung-BP96-01073A-lamp-p/samsung-bp96-01073a-lamp-oem.htm?Click=48173 .Have a blessed one!

Replaced lamp. TV does not respond


Hi, do you hear clicking or like a start up sound? if you do it could be an issue with the ballast,that's the board that powers the lamp.Here's how to replace it: http://guides.fixyourdlp.com/samsung/bp47-00033a.php Does your TV make a "whining, whirling, clicking, or humming noise?" If the TV have the infamous blinking lights problem and you're replaced your lamp without success, it's most likely a problem with your color wheel. The Samsung BP96-00674A color wheels spin anywhere from 6,000 to 15,000 revolutions per minute (RPM’s)--It is one of the few consumable parts in your Samsung TV. The average life expectancy from our data logging shows the Samsung color wheels are fairly reliable with a MEAN average of 5-8 years. Here's how to replace it:http://guides.fixyourdlp.com/samsung/bp96-01579a.php Also make sure door cover is properly shut and also reset lamp timer by unplugging tv wait 5 min and plug it back again.God bless you!
