    my samsung 50 " dlp is 4 yrs old and ihave just replaced the bulb and the balast.the problem that seems to not go away is the tv will come on with a picture for about 10 seconds and then go off with the 3 lights on the front blinking.standby,temp,lamp.
    i have tried holding the blue switch down in the back of the lamp compartment and that does no good either.i have blown all dust off the fans and all fans are working.
    why does the tv keep shutting off?
    the bulb comes on and then goes off.
    please help!!!!

    We have Samsung HL64663W 46" DLP Television. About 2 years ago we had to replace the lamp. No problems until a couple of weeks ago. The screen went black and the Timer, Lamp and Stand By/Temp lights started flashing. So we ordered a light and replaced it and the same problem existed. Sent the lamp back and got another one and just installed it and it does not work either. When you try to turn on the TV it initially powers up. The the sound comes on, screen starts to illuminate then it starts to flicker and then goes black, the light goes out, the fan stops and the sound stops. Anybody have any idea if this is actually a lamp problem or something else. Help.

Start by replacing the bulb. If thats a no go, check the ballast. Its a small circuit board directly underneath the bulb housing and is replaceable through the bulb panel. If those two don't work, comment back and I'll walk you through more 'in depth' repairs.

Also it may be the Temp fan in the back, My Samsung had the Same 3 light problem, It would be on for appox an hour and shut itself off with the 3 lights blinking. If I waited awhile it would come back on for a short time and then turn itself back off. I did not think it was the Lamp as I could still get the picture to come up. Once I replaced the Fan it worked fine for about 3 years...Now it just came up with the same problem again and first thing I am going to replace is the Fans....Also if you turn the TV on and notice there is a loud fan noise coming off of it its most likely the cause. The fan usually runs around $40.00 Better than paying the 180 for the lamp.

Watching tv/w a dvd/vhs player(a seperate machine)the power goes out on the screen.went out with a white flash like usually when i turn it on the bottom where the control buttons are,a red light...

It seems that your unit has some sort of PSU fault, or a problem that is shutting down the Power Supply Unit, PSU. This happens so that no further damage, and possible fire will occur.
You need to take the unit to a reputable service centre/man and ask for a firm "Quote" for the work to be done. It is that sound that gives it away, this is a typical switchmode Power Supply problem.

The power comes on and then turns off and the front green power light blinks.

There is a small IC in the power supply section,
not the IC regulator that's the problem.

Black screen w/ line in the center.

Its sounds like a Frame collapse, you should check the voltages to the frame chip if it is fine you should try to replace this chip.

Before you do anything else, make sure you do a hard reset. Unplug your television for an hour or two and then plug it back in. If you are still seeing the blinking lights and no picture or sound then we know of several possible prolbems that it might be. All of which require a local repair service to open the tv and replace a part.

Sound, but no picture. Standby light blinking 5 times

A few weeks ago my set started flashing to a black screen. Now a couple of weeks later, i have no picture, but the set turns on and i have sound. The standby light is flashing. I purchased the set in 2000 so it is seven years old. This is the first problem. Could it be all three of the bulbs? Could it be all three of the bulbs? no as you say that sound is ok that means your power supply &high voltage section is ok. please check chroma ic luminance section or system control section stand by ckt ihanks
