Re: the capacitor! i think i found it!

Mr. D: The capacitor top generally on new electronics components have a "cross like" mark on the aluminum top (+). When this "cross" is open up like a "canopy", capacitor must be replaced, because it is completly damaged on the inside. This occurs for 2 main things: 1. A cold solder (weld) that forces the capacitor to overreach their capacity of energy storing, and... 2. Reversed polarity causing overheat inside of it and then it simply can't stand the low level of resistance and explodes. SithPitt

Problem concerns Samsung HL-S5087W. All of a sudden, TV goes through 3 startup cycles and shuts down resulting in 3 blinking lights on front panel. What I've done: Completely cleaned inside of...


3 blinking led light at the front panel is an error code for lamp malfunction. If you've already replaced the bulb and yet the symptoms remain the same, then high chance that the fault came from the ballast board because the supply voltage is present.

Confirm if the bulb will lit upon powering on the unit. Open the lamp cover, bypass the lamp cover switch by putting tape to make it in closed position (making it still the lamp cover is attached to the housing) and then power on the unit. Check if the bulb will ignite or will light up, if not, you have to replaced the ballast board.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Because the Capacitors must be replaced before it is know if the Electronics Package must be sent in I consider this a $400 gamble to make an $800 decision. If replacing the Capacitors takes care of it (%50 success rate) it will cost around $400 in the end if it does not work another $400 to have Mitsubishi go through the Format board and replace any defective IC's.Prices in your area may be different.

Thermal issue !

A component inside the set has a thermal issue !

This may require hours of trouble shooting to find the components responsible.

Once the component(s) are found they could be serviced.

Thats a good price as long as they guarantee that it works. How were you able to pull a capacitor off without un-soldering it?

That depends... If the cabinet is in good shape and you're otherwise happy with the unit obviously YES it's worth it... But let me preface that with these thoughts. What board is it that they want to replace? Get a part number from them before you make your decision... Was the Lamp out and that's why it needed to be replaced? How much did they charge for the lamp? Lamps are not cheap items by themselves. For that unit I found that Herman/Panson has about the best price. And last time I checked they wanted about $159.00 for the lamp that fits this unit. After you get the part number for the board goto Vance Baldwin logon as a guest and select parts search on the left. Enter the part number and see what price comes up and you do the math with what they're charging... Remember that price is just to buy it not ship it too so they might be bit higher... If it's more than double the answers easy, tell them you'll supply the board and order it... That way you'll be a little more at ease with the repair. And again, yes I think it's probably worth repairing considering the above. Good Luck Bill
