Question about Samsung HLS5086WX/XAA

1 Answer

Samsung HLS5086WX/XAA made popping noise and shut off, then made whirring noise.

Tv made a loud popping noise (as if a light bulb blew, also had the smell like something fried) and shut off. All three lights in the front were on. Also made a loud whirring noise afterwords. I waited a few minutes and attempted to turn it back on. No picture but made the whirring noise again so I shut it back off and a few seconds later it auto turned itself back on doing the same thing. So unplugged it. I'm assuming its the color wheel but would like a second opinion? Lamp was replaced only a year or two ago.

    Well got the living room cleaned and such so I could take it apart. Its the lamp even tho I've not had it that long. The bulb popped so hard it even shattered the lens (luckily it didn't completely break out). So not 100% sure if the whirring noise was caused by a piece of glass stuck in something else or what. Cause there is two vent like things on the two sides of the case and I did find a shard or two outside the lamp housing. Or unless the bulb not projecting causes the other parts to whir in response to try and make up for the problem.

When my TV did this in the past it ended up being the color wheel. I had someone replace it and it worked fine. I asked it if had to be calibrated after it is installed and he said no. Also make sure the door switch is pushed down when you install the back bulb door. Sometimes this switch can go bad as well.

SOURCE: heard a pop and now no picture

You are on the right track for the repair of the set.
You should be able to hear the color wheel spin up as the lamp begins to glow. If it is not spinning then that is the first thing I would replace. During the power on sequence, if the color wheel is not detected as spinning, the set will turn off the lamp.

Since the lamp is firing up, I would not suspect the ballast. I would say having a spare ballast and lamp is very good idea for these televisions.

I have repaired these sets before and have ended up replacing the lamp, ballast, and color wheel all at the same time.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Did my tv just blow up?


Yes, I think you have lost the bulb and maybe the color wheel is on the way out too. But try a bulb first. If the old one has a broken "glass tube" in the center--be assured it is bad.

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.

Samsung hdtv HLP5085wx no image. Smelled something burning and sparking, turned off the tv. Tried turning it back on = have sound, NO image!


OMG! Dude, your screen is just plain fried. You don't need a new screen though, You just need a new bulb for it. See, behind the screen is a light bulb (unless your T.V. is plasma screen), sometimes two or three, and that burning smell was the bulb blowing (like when you need to replace a light bulb in a lamp or something). I don't know where you can find a new bulb, but once you replace it everything should be fine.

Sounded like a light bulb burst...


Sounds like a capacitor blew or the Flyback has shorted. Does the power led light up when power is pressed?
