I have this telvesion and after 3 years of 4-6 hours of gameplay, my bulb is still good. I did have the problem you are describing and fixed it by removing the panel on the back of the television where the lamp is located, reattached it and no issues.

If TV lamp has not been changed in last 2 years then most probably its Lamp issue in TV and requires lamp replacement.

TV stops video and audio for about 5 seconds


This model does have some issues, you can try on it to either remove it and a box if used for power for several minutes and then power back to see if that helps.

Soft reset with set on should (using original remote) be Menu, 1,2,3 and enter.

Samsung DLP 62 inch turns off by itself after being switched on


take off the lamp access door on the back and find the safety switch that the door pushes on. unplug the connector from the switch and put staple into the connector to short out the cable. Switch is probably bad. worked for me. same problem.

START AND SHUTDOWN


Hello Mr. Bond.

I believe that you have a rear projection TV where the light from
a powerful halogen light bulb is focused onto a micro-prism
viewing screen through a Liquid Crystal Video Chip.

The light-bulbs have a finite life, degrade with time and eventually
burn out. It is likely that you have a burned out light bulb.

Replacement light bulbs range from about $150 to $250 from
the dealer, depending on the exact model.

The bulbs are somewhat cheaper by mail order from the Internet,
if you can wait that long. Also, some bulbs are available without
the integral mounting bracket, further reducing the cost, but
skilled hands and careful handling is required.

Never touch the glass of a TV light bulb with your bare fingers.
The bulb runs very hot, and residual sweat from your fingers
may cause th bulb to crack and explode.
(use gentle white cloth gloves when handling the new bulb.

I believe that bulb just burned out on its own, and this has
nothing to do with your attempt to connect a DVD player.

On my TV (Sony 60"), a flashing green light indicates a
normal power-up/ bulb warm-up cycle. If the bulb fails to
respond, the TV will detect a bad bulb and shut off again.

i GOT TIRED OF FIGHTING IT, AND JUST LEAVE IT ON ALL THE TIME, SINCE MINE WILL TURN OFF CONTINUOUSLY FOR THE FIRST 3 HOURS OF TRYING TO TURN IT ON, SO BY THE TIME IT IS ABLE TO STAY ON FOR THE DURATION, YOU DON'T NEED IT ANYMORE, SO JUST LEAVING IT ALWAYS ON, IT IS READY WHEN I WANT IT. WHAT A PAIN.
