    Bulb comes on then gets btighter, then gets a little brighter again. The front fan comes on, and all 3 lights on the front (red,green,green) blink/ (Lamp replacement code?)

    No an that souns normal, you getting any high pitched or fan like sound from that area of the set? The only way to really know is replace the lamp. The number of hours it has does bother me though. You might want to remove the lamp, look for the center glass post being bent and reseat it (the lamp unit).

    Thanks for the quick response. Lamp post doesn't appear bent. NO high pitched noise. Someone mentioned possible Lamp ballast replacement, I suppose Lamp replacement first and if that doesn't fix it, try ballast. Someone also said lamp mercury changes and the lamp gets too large an arc to light up?

That is near or past the normal life on the lamp---2,000 hours or 2 years is normal---I would remove and look at the lamp---if shattered you know and also look the pillar of glass inside the lamp is not bent or warped etc.

My Samsung hlt5055wx/xaa has 2 green lights lit up but won't come on ? We replaced the picture tube 2 weeks ago and it has been working fine until I tried to turn it on today.

Your TV doesn't have a picture tube but rather a bulb. I would eliminate other possibilities first like cable connections etc first before looking into the set. Check all inputs with DVD or Bluray and see if it malfunctions across all inputs. If so it would be time to open up the set. If you are not comfortable with electronics you will have to bring it in.Really these sets are being given away these days and a repair should be considered carefully before spending any money.

SAMSUNG dlp tv wont come on..trys too them goes off before pic appears and flashes red and green light not light in middle..model is HLT5055WX/XAA

There are so many possibilities... If you are SURE that the lamp is good (did you take it out & look at it?) Easiest: When you turn on the tv, do you hear a 'whirring' sound coming from the back? If you do, is it a 'smooth' sound or is it rough, scratch, & noisy?. If it is smooth, or if there is no sound, next place to check is the power supply. If it is rough & noisy, it is a bad color wheel. Unless you REALLY know what you are doing, anything other than a lamp replacement should be left to a professional repair person.

I have a Model HLT5055WX/XAA that will turn on, but shortly after coming on the picture goes out. Audio still works but picture goes out and the lamp turns off. I think i need to replace the lamp but am...

Sometimes you have to gamble, lamp most likely--at least look at the lamp and make sure the glass pillar in it is not at a angle etc.

Sounds like you have taken all the easy steps, hate to buy a lamp you may or may not need but since wheel is ok the lamp or ballast are most likely.
