Question about Samsung HL-S5087W 50" HDTV

1 Answer

Lamp comes on but without picture

Daughter witnessed the death of my Samsung HLS5087w. Reported a loud noise (like the severe weather alert sounds) then screen went pink then died. Now when i power up the set it initializes normally, sounds normal, the bulb comes on but the screen remains grey and doesnt respond to remote control inputs. The lamp indicator just blinks for about a minute and a half then it shuts down. When it shuts down no indicators are lit and there is a slight scraping noise coming from the inside of the set either from the color wheel or a fan (this is a new noise).

The color wheel is the likely problem here.

It can be the Lamp Ballast as well as the Color Wheel.
