    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.

Screen went black, then small pop noise followed by power going out...power will flash on for a sec. when power button is pushed, but the screen is black and goes off immediatly?

Sounds like your transformer has run out. I had the same problem couple of years ago. It can happen either due to voltage fluctuations or lightning or something similar. All you have to do is replace that cheap and small equipment. Always go for the best one available in the market. Else the new one too can go out soon.

Monitor Black, Green Power Light Flashes Monitor is 4 yrs. old

Assuming you've already checked your driver and system settings, tried a different monitor, and checked the cable and connector pins, this would almost certainly be a problem with the power or signal circuit board inside the monitor.
