Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV
Steve The part you are inquiring about is called the ballast, It is a small (say 3" x 8" ) circuit board that attatches directly to the bulb via the two pronged leads coming off the bulb. On this set you'll have to take the back off to get to it. Once you do, you'll see it right infront of the optics block, just a couple screws will loosen it. There is a white and black power line and a sleeved reciever line connected to it. Get the model number off your ballast and go to shopjimmy.com rivervalleyelectronics.net or ebay and replace. If I remember correctly. There are several compatible ballasts for this set. Rule of thumb though, is that just because it looks the same doesn't mean it is. Call samsung, they will also sell you the newest, latest and greatest ballast. You can just ask them for a part number too and then shop around. Good luck.
