Samsung HL56A650C1FXZA- long time to come on

About the last month we have noticed it takes increasing long for the picture to come on. At first it was mainly after the TV was off for several hours but now it happens if TV is turned off and back on a few minutes later. When its turned on, you can hear it coming on but the blue light around the pwr button takes about 15 seconds to light up and make the sound. Then the picture sometimes comes right on and sometimes takes another 10 or so seconds. TV purchased in June 2008 so just 5 months old. Do we need a new lamp or do we have bigger problems?? Thanks for any suggestions!!

It can be the Lamp Ballast as well as the Color Wheel.

I have a samsung dlp ty model num hl56a650c1fxza whn I turn it on the tv tries to turn on but then it turn off and flashes green whr it says

First thing to do if DLP is remove and inspect the lamp--if shattered or the central glass pillar inside is warped it may be your problem.

In cases like this I try to see from openings near the lamp if it comes on for a moment and then goes off.

Also try to verify if the fans come on at all.

Lastly---if the set before failing was making a fan like or high pitched whine or even a grinding noise a color wheel is possible and common on this model.

The part replaced is the blue convergence IC, part number usually

STK392-040 .A generic IC will last 10-12 months.You must have

OEM or better quality for durable repair. I use Panasonic brand.

Change both IC's for long repair duration.

Samsun dpl HLN5056W

it's pretty normal for it to take up to 45 seconds for this set to fire up, could be starting to have a problem with the ballast which controls the lamp
