Question about Samsung HLP5685W 56" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

TV will not stay on?

TV just started cutting off all by itself. There are no indicators on the LED display either when this happens. Initially the tv would restart itelf but shut off again a short time later. If I unplug and replug in the tv it turns on automatically but then shuts off a short time later. I had similar issues about 6 months ago so I purchased a new lamp assembly. Even after putting in a brand new lamp, the on/off issue was still present although not as often. Eventually the tv resumed normal operation with the new lamp installed. Could I possibly need another new lamp already?

Hello, Hopefully We can help you determine if your lamp has failed. The Most obvious way to determine if you need a lamp is to do a Visual Check of your Lamp. Most of the time the Lamp will have blown and the filament burned. It will also usually be fogged up badly. Sometimes though the lamp will fail and look fine. Hence the blink code test. Todays Televisions Incorporate Blink Codes to be Used by both the Customers and Sevice Technicians. These Codes vary from Brand to Brand. We have compiled a list of these Blink codes in hopes that it will help you determine if Indeed you need a lamp. We say Blink Codes because when there is a failure within most televisions the Front LED Lights will Blink in some form of pattern. It maybe just your lamp light or it could be All of your lights.

Displaying the alarm code

The alarm code is displayed by a repeated sequence of flashing of the ANTI-CREASE/END OF CYCLE LED (0.4 seconds on, 0.4 seconds off, with a pause of 2.5 seconds between sequences). The buzzer emits a series of ,bips" in synchronization with the flashing of the LED.

  • ANTI-CREASE/END OF CYCLE LED: indicates the first number of the a alarm code
  • START/PAUSE LED: indicates the second number of the alarm code
Now you must count how many times the LED lit up and we will know the fault code.

RCA LED42C45RQ 42" LED LCD HDTV Shutting Off by itself

These flat panel tv's from china have cheap capacitors. Check to see if any capacitors have pushed up top, this indicates blown or dry capacitor. Replace with exact value, in the power supply area (is where they go bad). TV has a monitoring circuit, and if standby (or ready voltage) is not adequate, tv will shut off or stay in standby mode. Little tired today, so hope that gives you an adequate answer.

Tv circuit diagram

if the monitor led only turns on initially and then off this is an indication that the backlight circuit has failed. from memory the transistors(small) involved are close to the small transformers, usually 4 of them and 2 have failed, the safety shuts off the monitor. chassis are typically clipped together and hard to pull apart. goodluck

Samsung plasma won't turn on

Here's is what you need to look for when describing a problem for troubleshooting purposes:

0) What model is the TV (you've covered that)

1) Does the TV respond to command to turn on?
(yes - continue; no - 70% bad power, 30% bad main board)

2) Once it responds (clicks), does a front LED or other indication show that it turns on? It's OK if there's no display.

(that can be model specific and is not certain indication for anything until known what is specific for the model)

3) If such an indication comes up does it remain on until you act or does it go off by itself?
(Stays on - power supply likely good; turns off - power supply *may* be good, but not certain)

4) If the power indication stays on by itself can you make it go off by pressing the power button or do you have to disconnect from AC power?
(responds to power off - 90% power supply likely OK and 90% OK main board; does not respond to power off - 90% bad main board)

Here is a link for test/repair of the power supply of your TV, hope it would help:

Sharp lc-32sb220u lcd tv. Green Power LED flashes steady

Okay, I found the problem. There is a problem with the
ccfl (lamp) groung PCB. Mine is completely burnt through. I am going to attempt to repair it, but will likely need to extract it from a different unit. This board is on the front right of the lx in the lamp housing behind the
lcd panel. What is happening: The inverter circuit on the power supply is detecting that one of the lamps is not lighting and it goes into shut down.

Hope this helps!

I have a Panasonic PT-50DL54 50" rear projection tv. My tv screen won't come on but the fans will. The power led light flashes green like normal but than starts to flash fast for about a minute than the...

Time to get a new TV. I have similar problem. In my case, the set turns off, LED blinking green for about a minute or 2, then the set will turn on by itself. Something the LED started to blink yellow after blinking green and then shuts off. I can turn it back on. This happens 3 or 4 times in an hour. After that, the TV stays on for as many hours as I want until I shut it off.
And then the problem repeats everytime I turn it on from a cold start.
I have my eyes on the 50 inch Plasma from Panasonic. Bestbuy has one for 999.99.
