Check the lamp connection and also to insure you have the correct replacement lamp for your model. as 3 blinking LEDs mean lamp may be defective.

    It will depend on the spark gap as different lamps have different spark gaps and the spark gap has to be matched to the ballast or the lamp wont work. Does the replacement lamp they sent have a part number ? If so let me know and I will look it up for you

    Samsung recomends using the exact part number for your DLP as sansung has changed the lamp designs for their set over the same model year runs, The correct part number for your lamp is BP96-00826A the specs are its a type E23 100W/120W 1.0 the phillips lamp they sent is a type E22 120/132W 1.0 , I recomend sending it back and order the BP96-00826A as the BP96-00826A is one of the most popular Samsung lamps so they are available at alot of places.

Changed lamp and now the power is not turning on with the power light flashing three times

Three times light blinking shows that lamp cover has not been fixed on its location after lamp replacement.
Lamp cover is first thing that you removed to replace lamp, make sure it is fixed securely back in its place then turn tv On.

My hls5086w shuts off after 20 seconds and all three light flash is this the bulb?

Could be the Lamp. But first unplug the set wait 10 seconds the plug the set back in and turn on the set while looking at the rear Lamp Door vent slots. If the Lamp Illuminates then the lamp is probably good. You might try installing a new lamp since I do not know when and if you have ever replaced the lamp. If you have never replaced the lamp then it is time for a new one. If after replacing the lamp and the set still shuts down with three blinking leds then you have a bad Color Wheel.

Three flashing lights

IF this is a DLP, the three flashing lights usually indicates something wrong with the lamp, ballast, or color wheel unit.


Take the lamp out first to see if it's blown or worn out. If you haven't replaced it in 2+ years this is the first step to solving your problem. You're going to need the lamp anyway, so it's best to buy direct from the distributor: an Authorized PHILIPS distributor like Discount Merchant with a good record. Not someone who's merely a reseller.

  1. you'll get the best price
  2. you'll get the best support (people who know what Philips UHP lamps are and how to fix your TV)
  3. the best warranty for your money and not just a cold return policy.
So check the lamp first, and make sure that's not blown. If it is, there's your problem.

Samsung DLP HL-S5087W 56" Confused...

Those lamps can be pretty touchy and susceptible to temperature changes and finger prints. Also some discount lamp dealers can accidently sell you the wrong lamp. Something simple and dull to try is to take that lamp out and put it back in, check that the connections are seated properly and the air pathway from the fans is clear.  If the fans were dirty and you put in a new bulb that worked for a while it may have burned out prematurely.

Trouble Codes - Flashing lights.

Looking at the lamp itself can give a very good idea of its condition,You should be able to remove the lamp safely from its compartment because you will not be close to the high voltage but make sure the set is totally unplug from the wall.There might other reason but the lamp is a good place to start.
