Question about Samsung HLM5065W 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
I have a Samsung HLM5065W DLP that shuts itself off for no apparent reason. I let the TV sit for a few minutes and it turns on again. I just replaced the lamp a few weeks ago, but the shutoff continues so I can guess that this has nothing to do with the lamp. Any thoughts?
Same problem. Went through the gambit, lamp, color wheel then they said it was the board for $600. Can get a new tv for that. Sent board to company who claims to fix it for $40. Got board back and now nothing works. Filled a complaint with attorney general after hearing others did so and samsung fixed it. Waiting on last effort.

Try replacing the ballast next. Its the small circuit board directly underneath the lamp housing. You can access it through the lamp door. If the ballast is overheating or has a leaking capacitor, the tv won't stay lit for more than a minute or two.

I had the same issue but instead of shorting out the sensor, I removed the bulb assembly, cleaned the interior of the assembly and TV the best that I could with a vaccum and small paint brush. Once cleaned, I reinstalled the bulb assembly and the TV has worked for the last eight months with no problem.

Had similar problem. Thought it was the lamp. Examined old lamp but it appeared to be good. Ordered a new one anyway. Changed the lamp but the TV screen would not come on. It would make the usual noise as it was going to come on normally but it would cycle 3 times & then turn off. The LED lights in the front panel would indicate a defective lamp. Then read about the ballast. Changed the ballast & still same problem. Tried starting the TV without the lamp installed & noticed that the color wheel did not spin. Removed old color wheel & discovered it was broken. This appears to be the cause of all of my problems. I wish I new earlier of the test-turn on the TV without the lamp being installed & check to see if the color wheel is spinning. Would have save money on the lamp & ballast.
