Question about Samsung HL-S5687W 56" HDTV
I have a samsung hl-s5687w dlp tv that just stopped working ive only had it about 2 years and everything worked fine until one day the tv shut down no pic or sound and all three lights on front are flashing i tried replacing the bulb no luck there, there is a clicking sound when u plug the tv into a power source as though it wants to work but nothing happens. What is the next step i need to try to get this tv working? Please help
SOURCE: my samsung dlp tv hl-s5687w
I had the exact same problem with my TV turning off for no reason. If those two lights are blinking in the front it means your TV thinks the lamp door is open and shuts down. In my case i had to open the door and adjust the spring lever because it was not making good enough contact.
Hope that helps.

Well for what you describe it sounds like the symptoms of a worn out lamp giving you the last kicks,basically the the lamps are design to go for 6,000 to 8,000 lamp hours if they're Phillips and a generic lamp could give you 3500 to 4500 lamp hours so with this in mind you could search for a new lamp at Discount-merchant.com or you can go to Ebay also you can go to www.fixyourdlp.com for more troubelshooting

Testimonial: "Very prompt solution to my problem, thank you. "
From what I have read the most frequent solution to this problem is that the lamp door has become loose and that microswitch on it needs to be reset. Simply loosen the screw to the lamp door and open it a little bit and then close it again making sure that the door is closed tightly and retighten the screw.
Unfortunately, the second most common problem is that the main DMD digital board has developed a problem which is much more expensive to replace.
