    I have the same problem and originally thought it was the lamp, but do not want to pay for a new lamp if that is not the problem. I do not have audio when my screen turns black so that is why I do not to pay for a new bulb yet.

    I too have the problem with the screen going black and also not having sound. It just started today and it recycles every 30 seconds or so.

    Could you define "very expensive"? I am just trying to figure out if I should just get a new tv or pay to get this one fixed. Thank you!

    Well, I could guess it will be in the thousands to have a repair tech install a new one. But it all depends on the base price of the L/e for your model. Your best bet, would call a repair co, tell them you need the L/E, give them the model an serial and ask for a price to install it. You tell them your lamp light is on, you have no pix and the L/E is making noise. They shouldn't even need to check it out first. This repair is a little time consuming, but can be done right in your home. If you are really handy, you may be able to get one from ebay or somewhere and replace it yourself, but unless you've done stuff like this before, I wouldn't try it.

Samsung BP96-01653A Model HL50A650C1F I believe that the lamp went out on my Samsung 50 in DLP TV about a week ago. The TV would not turn on and the green lamp light blinks. I ordered a new lamp, fr


This sounds like a case where jumping to a incorrect conclusion has not resulted in the fix your were after. The problem could also be related to the power supply. Before going for another part it is best to consult a Technician who works on these all the time and get a correct direction to go before ordering a lot more parts. if you check on the internet with the symptom and model /brand of your unit- chances are someone else has already had this problem and may have the solution there for you to take advantage of. Of course each TV is different but it might be a better way to proceed than just guessing.

The power light is red and the bulb light is blinking red


OK...Did you replace the lamp with a Sony original? If you did, then carefully check that the door is closed properly.

Probable Lamp. If lamp hasn't bown the red Lamp Lite won't flash but other lamp issues cause stby timer light to continue flashing. If stby red lite is flashing, count the no. of times flashing - could open thermal fuse (6X flashing)

Lamp problem or else?


You need to get the ballast repair kit #LSUC0002 and replace the parts to your ballast.

I have the exact same TV, did the above this past weekend, and the TV works like new.

You need to know how to solder though. It's not that hard.

Hard time turning tv on and once on, will turn off after a period of time


Sounds like it may have been jarred or theres a larger tall capacitor in the power supply that goes bad in these sets alot. Its not something a layman should attemt. As a matter of fact the only thing in this set that is user replaceable, is the lamp. Sorry but your going to need the service manual and soecialized tools tom trouble shoot this set. you really should seek out a pro for this repair.
