I had a similar problem.
My TV started to flicker and I put a new bulb in. The new bulb did not help, even if ot is good to replace after a couple thousand hours.

I found out that mu heat sink, which is sitting on the CPU with the mirrors came loose and the unit overheated and shut off after flickering a while.

Try to take the lower back panel off and you see a heat sink which is sitting in the center of a aluminum sheet metal piece. Disconnect the wires which are attached to the circuit board behind the sheet metal. Then take off the screws holding the sheet metal and pull it gently off. It will take a little force, but it does not damage anything.
Now you see the heat sink on the circuit board heald by a latch going across the heat sink.
On the upper right corner you will find the handle to open the latch. Once you did it, you can take the heat sink off and see the main CPU (as I took the latch off, my heat sink fell off).
On my heat sink the Heat Sink Compound Paste creating the connection between the CPU and the heat sink dried out and became brittel, so there was no connection anymore and the couldn't be transported out through the heat sink, which is cooled by the fan sitting on the left.

I took the brittel Heat Sink Compound Paste off and applied a generous portion of the one that I bought at Radio Shack. I used Silicone-Base Heat Sink Compound which ran $4.99 excl. tax.

After applying the paste put the heat sink gently in and when you do, you will feel like a suction indicating that you have a connection between the CPU and the heat sink.
Now you need to put all parts back together.

If you are not familiar with electronics and those wires it wouldn't hurt or would be wise to mark the connectors and make pictures before removing them. This will save you a lot of frustration.

I hope this helps you and brings your TV back to live. My TV was cutting out after 25 minutes and runs now like a charme.

Good luck.

PS: If you experience a black screen with vertical stripes (mine were white and green) then most likely the light engine needs to be replaced, I had this after 9 months and got this fixed under warranty.

Hi I had same prob. after trying a bunch of things we took off the back of the tv and lightly sprayed can air into the color wheel area ( where the bulb faces) I used the long stick for the air can and put it near (not in ) the silver holes. I saw a piece of dust come out and tv is now fine. I think something gets in and blocks the color. I figured it out when I turned on tv ( after problems) and was trying to see if the lamp was going to blow (dumb yes) but when the tv light on the screen lit up (the one that tells you what channel you are on etc...) it went blue, it had always been green. That is why I thought the color area and sure enough!! I am elated to have fixed it. Hope it helps. Be careful though barely push the spray. The dust flew downward so maybe you could tilt can that way before you spray.

I have a Vivitek RP51HD41-A TV. The TV keeps turning off and on. The color and sound is fine. I have replaced the lamp and this has not fixed the problem.


If its a DLP it may have a color wheel which could be your problem (the colors will change etc)

Color wheels move at high speed and if slow down set will shut down.

The wheel if there will face the lamp. If often if failing will make a high pitched whine or a fan like sound.

Remove the lamp and look at the color wheel that faces it.

If wheel is shattered or missing pieces set will know it is not moving or moving too slow and shut set and lamp off.

Not all color wheels when fail make a sound

It sounds like the color wheel has failed and will need to be replaced. Color wheel will cost around $175.00-$200.00 plus 1-1.5 hours labor. You can call 1-800-samsung for the nearest service center.

I have a Samsung 50 inch DLP - I heard a pop and the picture immediately disappeared. The 3 lights were flashing on the front which according to the book said it needed a new lamp installed. I ordered it,...


Sounds like the color wheel may have also gone bad. I recently saw a 56" Samsung where the bulb and color wheel went at the same time. The color wheel could produce a crying noise while trying to spin up.
