Samsung DLP HL-R5067 blinking lights

I've tried to search the forums for existing answers, but haven't found anything that matches my problem.

I recently picked a used HL-R5067 and found that the color wheel was broken. So I replaced it and the TV started working just fine. A couple of months later, I turned it on and found that the TV wouldn't turn on immediately, instead it for try once, fail, and then start up with a flickering screen that would become okay after a few minutes.

A week later, the TV stopped working completely, giving up after 3 attempts. Considering I had just replaced the color wheel, I figured it's likely either the lamp or the ballast that's causing this. I took a guess and ordered a ballast. I put the new ballast in today and found that the TV did come on for a second or two, but now it's gone into a state where if I plug in the TV, the Stadyby/Temp and LAMP lights start blinking after a few seconds (without turning on the TV). If I try to turn on the TV, it comes on for a second and then turns off and the lights start blinking.

Can anyone tell me what the problem might be? I guess it could be the lamp, but I do get picture

SOURCE: Samsung DLP HL-R4266W..no sound or picture. TV is completely dead

Assuming the noise is a high-pitched whine, then yes, it is the color wheel.  If the color wheel goes out, the TV will turn on for a while, then turn off when it can't establish color wheel sync.  The color wheel has to be in sync with the mirrors on the DLP, so if sync can't be established, the TV turns off.
You can order a new color wheel from Sears or partstore.com (among other places) and replace it yourself, if you are so inclined.

The color wheel needs replacing. Thats causing the whining and it will also make the lamp light blink.

SOURCE: Samsung DLP HL-R5667W lamp won't fire. Changed

Was the replacement lamp the same part number as the original as there are different arc gaps for different lamps and the wrong arc gap will cause the lamp not to light. Since the ballast is powering up the lamp should light if the baalast is matched to the correct arc gap of the lamp being used.

SOURCE: We replaced the lamp on our Samsung 50

    1. Ensure that the TV is off. It may be advisable to unplug the TV as well.
    2. 2 Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove the single screw affixing the lamp cover (the small, grill panel on the back of the set) to the chasis. There is also a grill that is held in place by tension. Just "pinch" the thumb clamp on the bottom of the grill and slide it out. This is the same procedure you would perform to change the lamp, except in this case you will not need to remove the lamp itself.
    3. 3 Inspect the spring-loaded blue safety switch to ensure it is making good contact when the panel is secured. The switch should deflect downward when the panel is replaced. If the contact with the panel is suspect, very gently bend the metal bracket on which the switch is mounted.
    4. 4 Replace the grill cover and the lamp door, and continue to enjoy your TV.
    jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); });
  • 5.Check some basics first. Make sure the sleep timer on your TV hasn't been turned on, telling your set to turn off at a certain time. If your DLP TV is acting erratically, Samsung recommends turning the set off and unplugging it for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes plug it back in and turn it back on. Unplugging the set resets it, and that may fix the problem.
  • 6 Check your power supply. Make sure your Samsung DLP is securely plugged into a working outlet. Plug the TV into a different outlet to see if the problem still exists. Make sure that a fuse hasn't blown in your house or a circuit breaker hasn't flipped.
  • 7 Replace the lamp. If your Samsung DLP is shutting off or won't turn on, a bad lamp is the most likely cause. To replace the lamp, remove the lamp cover from the back of the TV by removing the screws with a Phillips screwdriver and slide it out and away from the TV. Remove the screws on the lamp assembly and slide it out of the TV. Disconnect the old lamp and insert a new lamp into the assembly. Slide the assembly back into place and replace the screws. Do the same for the lamp cover.
  • 8 Check for signs of overheating. Samsung DLP TVs generate a sizable amount of heat. If the components inside the TV get to hot, the TV will shut itself off as a protective measure. Make sure your DLP is out 12 inches or so from the wall. Make sure that all of the vents on the set are clear of any obstructions. Allow the TV to cool down for 30 minutes before turning it back on.
  • 9 Contact Samsung. If none of the above tips help, it's time to contact Samsung, as the problem is likely something that should only be fixed by a qualified service technician. More serious problems may include a bad power supply or a bad ballast. Attempting to repair those yourself will void your warranty and may cause more serious damage to your set.


  • The safety switch exists so the user does not accidentally remove the lamp door while the TV is on. Doing so could, theoretically, result in burn or electrocution. This spring loaded switch causes the TV to shut down when the door is opened.
  • Since the TV's chasis is plastic, expansion and contraction can cause the switch to lose firm contact with the lamp door. The TV's behavior could then be such that after being on for a while (getting warm) the plastic expands and the switch loses enough contact to cause the TV to shut down. The frequency with which this phenomenon occurs is not only dependent on the internal temperature of the TV, but also the ambient temperature of the room as well as the relative tension on the switch itself. The user's perception is that the TV starts up fine, but then "randomly" turns itself off after being on for a while.
  • If you have recently moved your TV, it is very common for random shut-downs to occur. This is because the move has shifted the flimsy plastic chasis of the TV, thereby loosening the contact between the lamp door and the switch.
  • Make sure your TV is off and cool when performing this procedure.

    I own a Samsung HL-R5067W 50'' DLP. Set is about 3 years old. Recently I heard a loud pop while viewing, picture distorted, but never went blank. I turned set off. When turned on again a loud whining noise...


    Check your color wheel. There is a DIY guide for replacing the color wheel. Mine did the same thing yours is and my color wheel was all busted up. Unfortunately after replacing the color wheel my set continues to do the same thing, but this could mean I need to replace the ballast as well.
