Question about Samsung Televison & Video

1 Answer

Samsung DLP HL-T5676S turns itself off.

Ok, here's what happens. I turn on the tv. The lamp will light up a little bit, then shut off. It will do this 3 times and then the tv will shut itself off and restart. The lamp will then turn on and off 3 times again. This whole cycle is repeated a total of 3 times at which point the tv shuts off and the 3 indicator lights on the front blink and the tv becomes non responsive. I have replaced the lamp with a new one and still have the same issue. I'm now thinking it's the ballast but before I invest any more money, I want to make sure that it isn't anything else. Please help.

    It is not, unfortunately. As a side note, I found a ballast for $21, so I figure I would try swapping that regardless.

    Yep,new ballast fixed it right up. I was a little worried when reading about replacing the ballast as most suggestions are to have a professional replace it for you, but it was actually very simple and quick. And I guess I now have an extra lamp, which is never a bad thing.

Tv will turn on, for about 30 seconds, then it will shut down

There are two main reaons for this fault. The first is with its power regulator board itself. If it has any loose soldering points developed, this type of intermittent fault can occur. The second is with its light engine. If you want to do this work by yourself, you must have thorough knoledge in electroncis, and must have all tools and ability to follow its schematic diagram. The most you need is patience. If you have these all, and want to do the repairwork by yoursef, inform me. I've the schematics of your tV, and all repair adjustments and proceedings. The power supply board and lamp ballast boards for Samsung (HL-T) series are shown here for your referecne. The lamp ballast board also may need to be checked.

Samsung DLP turns on and off - cycle repeats

make sure put the lamp door back before trying to turn it on because they have switches on them that allow the tv to turn on. If that is ok you probably have a bad ballast.
Call a local tv repair shop to further diagnose the problem.

52 HD Samsung tv turns off

I have the same problem with my 56" HD Samsung. It shuts off automatically and then on the power button the word Lamp is light up in green. Sometimes I can turn it back on but other times it won't and I have to wait a bit. It's been embarassing a couple times when people were over for a movie. I believe it might be some kind of overheating problem but would like someone to confirm this.
