Our Samsung HLN617W DLP TV won't turn on!

Hi-
Our television worked fine last evening. This morning when I went to power it up, it made its usual noise but there was no picture. The small round panel on the front showed a green light with a red light underneath. I tried to hit the power button but it was as if it had no power and nothing happened whatsoever. I unplugged and replugged and hit the power and nothing; however, the lights in the panel shut off. Now when hitting the power button, it's as if it has no power at all as though unplugged from the supply. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Happy holidays!
Merry-

This denotes a power supply problem. The trouble could be in the low voltage or the high voltage supply. You will need a schematic and at least a multimeter to even beging to troubleshoot this problem. If you do not have a background in electronics. I would suggest taking the set to a TV repair shop.

Problem solved. I opened the configuration menu, went to Setup, More, Light Effect, changed setting from "Always" to "In Watching TV".

Your model has a maximum resolution of 720p. What you might want to do is make sure that both your cable/sat box and game stations are outputting at no more than 720 resolution. It's easy to assume that all HDTVs may accept a higher signal, and while they might, some of the scene changes or handshakes may make that operation cause the symptoms you describe.

SOURCE: Samsung HLN617W Tantus 61" DLP occasionally will not turn on.

It sounds to me like you have an issue with the ballast not firing the lamp. It sound like you know to check the lamp, but there is no way to check the ballast, unless you replace it. The ballast is not that tricky to replace, but if you are not sure I would refer you to a technician to replace the part.

A number of Samsung projection TV and LCD TV had bad capacitors. There was even a class-action lawsuit (which is over). It happened to one of mine. If you open up the TV and find the control board you will fine 1 or 2 capacitors that have split on top like a little mushroom. I have them replaced and the TV woks just fine. Amazon even has kits if your a DIY person and can soder.

Samsung DLP model hln617w won't turn on (not bad bulb)


Samsung is notorious for having bad color wheels in their DLPs. Well lets just say they are like toasters, they only last a certain amount of time. If the color wheel isn't spinning or is broken, the set will power down almost immediately after you hit the button, you may not even hear the entire fire up jingle. Check the wheel, if you can see the bulb light up for that split second. Actually, check it whether the bulb lights up or not.
