The back closes on it and shoves it forward. It prevents the lamp and set from working with rear cover removed.

Just installed lamp and tv not working can u help me


Make sure lamp cover has been fixed back in place correctly, lamp cover is first thing that you removed from tv to replace lamp, it should be fixed properly after lamp replacement.
Are you sure replacement lamp is original from Samsung?
Thanks.

Samsung HLP5085W DLP - lamp replaced about 7 months ago. I powered up TV and got strange colors with flickering picture. Turned unit off and triangle symbol appears with lamp showing - needs replacement....


Strange colors and flickering picture symptom shows problem with color wheel and/or dmd board.
Lamp is only light source in dlp tv and it has nothing with colors or picture flicker.
TV goes to protection mode because of some internal problem as mentioned above.
If you wish to repair tv by yourself then you should have service manual copy in hand and that can be downloaded from HERE for small fee.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

Tv turns on and off


I had a similar problem where my 61" Samsung DLP was turning itself off very frequently I had resolved to try replacing the bulb. I called a local TV repair place to see if they had my buld in stock. The guy I spoke to actually told me how to fix my problem! There is a little blue switch behind the bulb access door. The inside of the door has a little piece that presses the switch down. The switch is supposed to work correctly weather the switch is in the up or down position but samsung forgot to take expansion from heat into account. If the switch is held in the upper position by the door and the plastic expands to a certain point, it triggers the set to shut off. This does not occur of the switch is held in the lower position. What you need to do is take the access door off and put it back on by sliding it into position from above. That will hold the switch in the down position, eliminating the problem. My set has not **** itself off ever since.

Tv continues to turn on and off by itself..


When it shuts off by itself, does the blue circle screen under the "Samsung" label show a picture of a light bulb? If so, it's probably time to replace the lamp.

If you look in the back of your tv, you should be able to see the light from the bulb, if the bulb isn't working no light.
