    I have looked for a bad fuse and the thermostat is good. There is a ticking sound inside the set before shutdown but the lamp does not light up.

Probably bad caps on board, also fuses go when lamps go out sometimes, you can look for a fuse also.

If Fan is running when you turn TV on and keeps running then its OK ,Ballast Board is what turns Lamp on, Is Lamp Lighting at all?

Samsung hln617w dlp tv won't turn on. Red temp

Had similar problem. Thought it was the lamp. Examined old lamp but it appeared to be good. Ordered a new one anyway. Changed the lamp but the TV screen would not come on. It would make the usual noise as it was going to come on normally but it would cycle 3 times & then turn off. The LED lights in the front panel would indicate a defective lamp. Then read about the ballast. Changed the ballast & still same problem. Tried starting the TV without the lamp installed & noticed that the color wheel did not spin. Removed old color wheel & discovered it was broken. This appears to be the cause of all of my problems. I wish I new earlier of the test-turn on the TV without the lamp being installed & check to see if the color wheel is spinning. Would have save money on the lamp & ballast.

Samsung DLP TV time, temp and lamp lights blinking... won't turn

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!

Samsung hln5065 picture issue

If all 3 lights are blinking on Samsung DLP it means your lamp is burnt out or has issues. The manual says replace the lamp when all 3 lights are blinking. If you can hear the arc from the ballast the lamp should light if the lamp is operational.A new lamp should solve your problem.

HLP, HCN HL-S The Start-up Problem or/and
3 LEDs in the front blinking.

Unplug the set, pull out the lamp module (not all the way - leave it on the track) and push it back in.

Power issues (Tv not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.

My 60" lcd projection tv wont turn on sometimes and throws a lamp light, and if i watch tv for a while and turn it off it wont turn back on and throws the red lamp light

The buzzing sound you most likely hear is the ballast trying to fire up the lamp. I would say replace the lamp and yes they can act up at will. If this is the first lamp replacement ever then you are doing good.
