Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV
My 61" samsung DLP TV HL-s6187W won't go back on, once its turned off I have to wait a couple of hours before it goes back on. When I try to turn it on it makes a funny sound and the 3 LED lights blink. The TV is 2 years old and this has been happening for over a year. I've replaced the lamp 2 times but it didn't help. The wait in between turning on is getting longer now.
This sounds to me like one of two possibilities. First, check your ballast. If you're going through bulbs faster than you think you ought to be, you may have a ballast that is overloading. Its the 3" x 8" circuit board that connects directly to the bulb. They are plentiful and often cheap. Thats what I'd try first. If that doesnt' do it, I would invest in a new power supply board. That the board that the tv power cable hooks directly in to. This should give you a start, Comment back if you still need further help. Good luck.
