Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

TV will not turn on

If power is disconnected then reconnected, the TV will turn on for about 10 to 20 seconds. Then it will turn of and there will be three blinking lights on the front. It can not be re-turned on again until power is disconnected. Is this something I can try and fix myself?

I am unable to get a picture on hdmi when i connect my ps3, but am able to get sound when i use ps3 controller. any ideas ?

  1. Step 1 Check for an HDMI port Check the back of your television for an HDMI port and refer to your owner's manual for your television's resolution. A resolution of 1080p offers the highest quality.
  2. Most PS3 systems support 1.3 HDMI, but older systems may need a software update from the 1.1 or 1.2 version.
  3. Step 2 Disconnect cables Disconnect all the cables and adapters from the back of your PS3, and then unplug your TV to reduce the risk of shock as you work.
  4. Step 3 Connect HDMI cable Connect the HDMI cable. Reconnect the power cables on both the TV and the PS3 system.
  5. Step 4 Hold power button Hold down the power button until the PS3 beeps and continue holding it for an additional five seconds until the system makes a second beep.
  6. The Playstation 3 should detect the high definition cable and automatically adjust the settings to give you the best picture and sound possible.
  7. Step 5 Test the connection Test the connection. If the HDMI cable isn't working, turn everything off and reconnect the original cables to manually change the settings.
  8. Step 6 Adjust the settings Turn the system back on, select Settings, Display Settings, Video Output Settings, and then HDMI. Repeat the process for your Audio Settings. You can now experience your games with the highest video and audio quality available.

My mitsubishi WD-65735 1080P has a green blinking light under the word lamp..what does that mean?

all these sets have a boot up if unplugged.

If power is lost or disconnected when reconnected green light will blink for about 70 seconds (set is rebooting) and then go off allowing set to be turned on.

Hi, i changed the lamp on my LG LCoS Projection TV Model 71SA1D. Everything was great for about an hour or so. The lamp warning indicator reappeared and the TV shutdown only to come back on within a minute...

it may be something with the new lamp or the projector overall. try to turn it off, disconnect the power cord, press the power button for about 10 seconds, remove the lamp and reconnect it making sure it is properly installed. then place the cover securely and try to test it again. you may also need to reset the lamp time for it, refer to the manual of your device for the instructions.

Sony kp-65wv600 projection tv error code. My tv blinks 7 times.

The Standby LED blinks when the TV is turned on, then shuts off when the picture is displayed. If the LED blinks continuously, this may indicate that the TV requires service. Before getting the TV serviced, try power resetting the TV and factory resetting. Try the below steps also: Connect the TV to a different wall outlet and check if it helps. This is to check if the issue is with the Power. Disconnect the TV from the Power Strip or the Surge Protector and connect it directly to the Wall outlet and check if it helps. To Power Reset the TV, disconnect the Power cord for a short period of time (approximately 1 minute). Then, reconnect the Power cord and power ON the TV. To factory reset the TV, turn it ON. Then while holding down the RESET button on the Remote Control, press the Power button on the TV front panel. The TV will turn OFF and then turn ON again. Then release the RESET button to complete the reset procedure. If the issue persists, service may be required.
Good Luck!!

Please try disconnecting all the cables from the TV then reconnecting them back after a few minutes. You may also try connecting the power cord from the TV directly to a functional wall outlet. If the issue persists then the projection lamp needs to be replaced.

Sony Grand WEGA KF42WE610 42" turns on and off

If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.

Please make sure that the videos sources are connected properly to the TV.

Try Power Resetting the TV.

Please disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet (for approximately 1 minute), then reconnect the power cord and check whether the issue is resolved.

Also try connecting the TV to a different wall outlet and check if that helps.

Mitsu WS-55411 RPTV-power going on and off..won't stay on!


It is possible that the Low Voltage power module is defective, however I would first check the High Voltage power supply for bad capacitors (they tend to go bad first). In fact check both boards for bad capacitors (they will look puffy in appearance if they are really defective).

I hope this helps,

Thank you,
