My Samsung 56" TV has apparently burned out another lamp, or the same one as before. Last time it cost $500 to replace it. I see I can get the lamp for $157. It that something that the consumer can replace themselves? The TV is about 6 years old. It it worth another $500?

use only original samsung lamp with the housing and socket attatched.
The lamp door switch may be intermittent,so you are temporarily fixing it by open and closing the door. The ballast can cause the failure as well. Avoid short period off and on times as turning the set back on in intervals less than an hour will cause microscopic cracks in the glass because the lamp needs too cool down to room temp before it is restarted for ultimate life........I hope this helps!!
Sounds like the lamp might be burned out. The Lamp should be replaced every couple years. If they are not replaced they will eventually burn out. Replacement is not that difficult and just requires a screwdriver. The lamp is located at the back of the DLP TV on the left side. The lamp can be purchased online from Samsung for about $130 dollars. You might be able to find a aftermarket one for less. Just use your telivision's model number located on the right side of the TV on sticker to cross reference the bulb that is needed or there might be a sticker on the back at the lamp housing that has the lamp part number. And make sure to spend the extra money and get the Lamp with the housing together. You can buy just the lamp for cheaper but that will require you to remove the old lamp from the housing and they are fragile. Much easier installation with the housing/lamp combo.
I'm not a TV repair guy but my owners manual states that when all three LED's or lights on the front of the TV are flashing, that the lamp needs to be replaced. Might want to look into this. Good luck!
Regarding the tv turning, my question is, do you hear a clicking sound? if so, it's most probable tio be your ballast, that might not have enough voltage to keep on with your lamp, and that's why it shuts off.
You could try replacing it and seeing if it resolves your issue, I believe they're running around 70 dlls..
have a great one ! :)
