Have you checked the lamp? If the tyv is 3 years old and the lamp has never been replaced,it's time.The crackling noise also sounds like a blown lamp.

My Samsung HLN617 DLP is now dark. 3 small lights in the small circular display come on for a few minutes. Is the bulb easily replaceable for a novice or should I take the set to a repair facility?


Hi,do you hear any strange noises? If you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast.Here's the instructions to replace it :http://www.fixyourdlp.com/guides/samsung/bp47-00033a.php But if you don't hear any strange noises,tv is around 6000 hrs,2-4 yrs it could be time to replace the lamp.The lamp you need is BP9600224B and you can find it here:http://www.discount-merchant.com/Samsung-BP96-00224B-OEM-Replacement-LAMP-BULB-BP-p/samsung-bp96-00224b-oem.htm?Click=48173 .Here's how to replace it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQTKt9skeyEHave a blessed one!

Problem with tv turning off by itself.


I had a friend with the same problem. He had to clean the components and fans in the set. The accumulated dust had caused the set to run hot and a safety switch was the tv off. He purchased a few cans of compressed air and, as he blew the components and fans out, used a vacuum to capture the blown dust. Good luck.
