Question about Samsung HL-S5086W 50" HDTV
TV turns on normally for 15-20 seconds then turns itself off. Then all 3 lights blink. I have replaced the power ballast and have bypassed temp sensor and lamp door switch, ruling those out as problems. Because the lamp lights up normally for 15-20 seconds, I didn't think the lamp was the problem. Is it still possible the lamp is defective?
If your tv is dlp. the blub is probably the cause. i have a r5087 and had same problem. replaced blub and set works fine

It could be the lamp but don't overlook the lamp door interlock switch. If the lamp door is not aligned properly, you may have intermittent shutdown or no start conditions. You can temporarily cross the interlock switch to confirm that this is the cause.

Remove the rear cover and check the lamp cover switch. Earlier versions used a black plastic switch holder that may break due to improper assembly. The part number for the holder is BP61-01240A. Newer versions use a metal tab attached to the engine. In this case, improper assembly may cause the lamp cover switch to be extended past its range, either breaking the switch or causing it to have an open contact. Replace the switch with BP91-01231A.
Note that in these models, when reinstalling the rear cover, it is best to remove the lamp cover first, install the rear cover, then install the lamp cover. This will make sure that the lamp switch is properly engaged.
