Question about Samsung HLR5067WX 50" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

SAMSUNG HLS5086W Hello, I stumbled across this web page and am hoping it will help solve some of my questions. I just had this TV sent from overseas from the US to Germany where I am stationed. Upon arrival it does not turn on. When I hit the power button the light turns green, and then turns off and the STD BY / LAMP LED goes flashing red. I removed the back cover to see if I could see anything happening, and it appears that the light turns on very briefly, and then turns off. I have never worked on a DLP TV, and have no idea where a good place to start is. I would think the bulb is fine if it powers up. I removed the light and reseated about 3-4 connections with no improvements. I am somewhat electronically competent and should be able to gain access to multimeters and any other instruments i might need. I was wondering if there is an easy way to test the ballast, or would it be ok as well if it was able to power on the bulb even tho brief. If not the ballast, are any of these symptoms pointing towards the DMD board? If you have any sugjestions, it would be much appreciated. Thanks I have the same problem with my samsung hls5086W. My TV shuts off at least 10 times an hour. sometimes not at all the next day, then back to the same issue the following day. I wish I knew how to fix this or even know what the issue could be. The standby/temp and lamp lights up and flash! is this an overheating problem? Please somebody let me know what I need to fix this inconvenience. Thanks alot.

I have a 61 inch samsung TV. A message flashed across the screen saying "check fan # 1 " then a few minutes later it shut down.

Not much to do by web, this message mean you most likely need a new fan, tv shuts down due to overheating. Contact service.

I have the same tv that i'm working on. If the two lights on the front are flashing check the switch in the back of the tv that keeps the tv from working when the cover is off. The switch is located on the back and right in the middle of the chassis. Make sure its not damaged from shipping.

My Samsung 50" HLS5086W wide screen tv keeps shutting off....

I am not in my shop, so, I cannot look at the schematic. The only problem I have seen with two lights blinking with this set is an intermitent thermal fuse above the lamp. Sometimes the lamp door switch is in the up position and it needs to be down (This normally occurs when the lamp door has been opened and it also comes from the factory in the wrong position. The set has a one year warranty. Contact: 1-800-SAMSUNG for a local servicer.
