    I also bought a replacement bulb from Laptops for less and replaced my bulb. The TV works, but it will randomly shut down with no picture or sound. The green light will flash for about 20-30 seconds and then the TV will come on again. Could it be a bad bulb?

    I got the replace bulb error light, bought a new bulb and now the TV works most of the time, but randomly will not start up and give the bad bulb indicator. Repeated attempts to start are eventually successful, so I know the bulb is not defective, there has to be something else wrong.

    ecallen007,
    How many times does the red light flash?
    believer72,
    It sounds like you either have a bad lamp or the one you bought is not installed properly

The power button flashes lamp


Lamp bulb is failing. You should get a message to that effect, but sometimes if it has been replaced before it will not show it needs to be replaced. All you can do is replace the bulb, note that some of the newer replacement housing's are not exact fits, so you will need to modify it with the old housing. Good luck

Samsung HLR5667wx/xaa. Power surge took out tv. Replaced bulb and the bulb works, but tv wont come on and lamp light is flashing.


Hello, it sounds like the color wheel may have failed. Was there any noises, like a high pitch sound before it went out? If the color wheel isn't turning at proper speed, the set won't start up by shutting down the lamp protection circuit.

Purchased a new bulb for our Samsung HL-T4675SX DLP TV in October. Less than 3 weeks after the bulb was installed, the TV would not turn on and the three indicator lights on the front of the TV came on,...


ballast failures are not that common in general. i would suspect the color wheel before the ballast. do you hear a whirring noise when the tv is trying to turn on. sometimes the color wheel will not spin correctly and the tv will not start as a result.

HL-R5656W Unit made loud pop and pic went black, ordered bulb but there is a loud crackling with some flashing going on when I re-inserted old bulb, is this the ballast that needs replaced?


Wait until you get the new bulb to determine that. The old bulb is probably arching as it tries to start.90% of the time the new bulb will do the trick.

Standby lamp flashes red


Had the same issue today when I replaced the bulb with housing. Did you try to turn on the TV without attaching the housing door? That was my problem...tried to see if the new bulb worked without going through the motions of screwing on the door. I believe the housing contacts are not making a good contact. Try taking the housing out and reinstalling it firmly in place and definitely screw in the door firmly as well. Perhaps it will work then. Advise...

Samsung 50" DLP - Lamp Light Blinking after bulb replacement


Listen closely. The tv should make a high pitch whine as it turns on. If it does wait and see if it tries this a few times. If yes then check the bulb, I have seen cases where the lamp shoves the power connector back into the set. If the tv starts with a grown or heavy vibration noise, then your color wheel may have broken and needs replaced.

TV turned off by itself and now blinks red led 6 times


6 blinks means a low B error. Which is no DD 6volt output on G1 board . This will cause no picture and no sound. To fix this yourself you would need the manual to get the correct sequence to test and proper part to order. You can get a service manual for 10.99 at the following link and they will ask if you'd like it emailed to you after purchase. Here is the link,
