Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV
The TV has worked fine for the 13 months since I bought it. Xmas morning I turn the set on and 20 seconds later it, the screen goes black, then a few seconds after that, the set shuts down. I then get the three lights on the front blinking. I tried unplugging for awhile and messed with the little blue switch by the bulb door. The one fan I can see still runs. The same scenario plays out every tme i turn the TV on. The TV gets alot of use (8-9 hrs /day) but would have thought the bulb would last longer. Do you think its the bulb or should I call a Tech?
Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

I fixed it. Went back in after a twenty min. break, figured if it's broke I can't break it again, might as well try to fix it(out of warranty, so much time on 1st. bulb, after fixing I found out had 8463 hrs. on 1st. lamp! WOWW most i've seen on any strings out there,and I'm really cheap and inquisitive) But this is how I did it. pulled off covers. looked around pulled light box out checked connectors and resistors visually for burns, none found, then I see a clear plastic sleeve covered group of wires it was plugged up at the ballast where i was working earlier but not the other end, so i looked around for the plug to insert it, couldn't see any where. I felt on top of a silver polished panel w/holes allover, there on top, at the right side of the silver panel was a plug for it. I plugged it in by removing fan and cooling fin assembly, for room to work(and good chance to clean dust from the fins and fans. I tilted silver panel down to see the top, after some removing spring loaded screws holding cooling fins, (the screws ave very light spring tension and won't pop out, I swear, keep track of springs for reassembly later) plugged it in(only goes one way, don't force it, flip over if it doesn't fit nicely) replace all removed parts in reverse order and reinstall covers, plug up, and mine powered on almost instantly. After that and spending 2 hrs. online trying to go through all the strings everywhere about these problems. It came down to trial by fire. I hope this helps, reply if it doesn't.

DO you have the owners mannel if so read it and see what they would do ,have you removed the lamp and if so how did it look? some lamps only last for 5,000 hrs and others 8,000 hrs If lamp is bad TV will not come on.

It is the color wheel, inside the light engine. The bearings get dirty and makes it harder for the wheel to spin causing that whin.
