Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV

Samsung DLP TV won't turn on

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.

    I have exactly the same problem. We purchased the tv used and the guy recently replaced the bulb. About 3 weeks after we got it the color wheel blew up and we replaced it. Now the tv turns on fine for the first time but then won't turn on after initial shut down. After 2 power attempts all the LEDs flash. Removing power and letting the tv sit for a couple of hours and it turns back on.



    Any clues how to repair?

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.

I am not in my shop, so, I cannot look at the schematic. The only problem I have seen with two lights blinking with this set is an intermitent thermal fuse above the lamp. Sometimes the lamp door switch is in the up position and it needs to be down (This normally occurs when the lamp door has been opened and it also comes from the factory in the wrong position. The set has a one year warranty. Contact: 1-800-SAMSUNG for a local servicer.
