I dont think you have a bad bulb but what you might consider is having someone come out to have a look at the tv. if the bulb was bad you just woulnt have that color in the picture,

I have an hlp4663w 46in dlp samsung. The problem is after turning on the set it runs for a few minutes and I loose the picture, but I still have sound. I can turn it off and then back on and the picture...


It could be the temp sensor going bad. This sensor sits on top of the metal housing which the bulb assembly slides into. The bulb assembly will have a hole on top and this is where the sensor is above. There is a small blue and white wire that plugs into it. If you pull the wire out and put a paper clip or wire in the coupling you will basically bypass the sensor connecting the blue and white wire. If your tv turns on then that is your problem. Its cheap too. Here were my symptoms..1] Turn tv on 2] Bulb would light up..(which eliminates the ballast) regular picture would show up (which eliminates the bulb and color wheel) 3] 30 seconds later tv would shut down with 3 flashing lights. After bypass the tv turned on as always and hasnt shut down yet. Always un plug tv first. Get the replacement part to avoid overheating and possible fire

Shuts off after a few minutes


This is a common problem for samsung DLP tvs and is due to the age of the lamp.

See this article for some solutions to extend the life, but in the end, you need a new tv or a new lamp.

Tv turns on w/pic then pic dissapears light blinks 4 times


I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.

the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.

A solution to this would be greatly appreciated.

How does tv know when lamp is expired -changed bulb after yellow lighht came on but light stayed on months later the light went to red and tv wont turn on


When the lamp goes on a DLP you get no picture, if the light came on and you still had a pic then it might have been telling you ,you had other problems. If the TV wont come on now check your bulb it might be blown this time. The bulb will have lots of small peices of glass in it when its blown. They should last a few years each (3-4).

The TV will turn off randomly and Not turn back on


This may help, we have a HP - DLP TV and it will do that when the bulb is going bad.

New bulb/TV still shuts down


Its far more likely the result of the power pwb capacitors that have failed. As the 34 code will appear if the capacitors fail on the Power PWB. You can get the V26 DLP Power repair kit at the following link.with free instructions

Akai PT50DL24 50 in DLP Rear Projection TV-NO PIC OR SOUND


check for popped or raised tops on caps in power supply. also try unplugging set for 5 minutes and resetting it. How about does your color wheel spin up? if your color wheel don't startup then your tv will also shut down. also check all fans they all should be running at turn on. if all fails i would say its your light engine.

Toshiba 52hm84 DLP buzzing sound after replace bulb?? no pic


You have bad capacitors in the power supply that took out the regulator, or the ballast circuit is defective. Not really a repair for the novice. Good Luck
