My Samsung 61" DLP Tv

We recently had a really bad lightning storm here, and after the power to our apartment was restored my Samsung TV wanted to act all screwy... It turns on and makes the melody sound like it should but no picture comes up on the screen.... And down in the right hand side where the LED's are... the Lamp LED sits there and blinks at me... then by some sort of magic the TV turns itself off and back on after about 10 seconds of the blinking LED Can someone please tell me whats wrong? ... =(

SOURCE: samsung tv turning off by itself

I have the same problem of the set turning off and on by itself. There is a circuit in Samsung TVs that would shut it down if a very loud noise occurs in the program being watched, but I have not noticed that correlation. My problem is solved by vacuuming the back panels of the set. They do not seem to have any significant dust on them, but I think the vacuum sucks somewhat inside of the TV and does some good with the fan that is supposed to be cooling the bulb and the mirror. It seems to work for months on end and when the problem recurrs, I vacuum again.

SOURCE: samsung tv turning off by itself

I had a similar problem where my 61" Samsung DLP was turning itself off very frequently I had resolved to try replacing the bulb. I called a local TV repair place to see if they had my buld in stock. The guy I spoke to actually told me how to fix my problem! There is a little blue switch behind the bulb access door. The inside of the door has a little piece that presses the switch down. The switch is supposed to work correctly weather the switch is in the up or down position but samsung forgot to take expansion from heat into account. If the switch is held in the upper position by the door and the plastic expands to a certain point, it triggers the set to shut off. This does not occur of the switch is held in the lower position. What you need to do is take the access door off and put it back on by sliding it into position from above. That will hold the switch in the down position, eliminating the problem. My set has not **** itself off ever since.

SOURCE: Samsung dlp hls6186w, picture has darkened.

The lamp is the only thing that will cause the picture to go darker. According to the model you have the lamp part number is BP96-01472A. The noise you hear could possibly be the color wheel itself. The way to tell is when you turn off the TV the lamp stays on for about 10 seconds longer. Once the lamp shuts off if that noise goes away then it is a bad color wheel. Any noises past that would be a fan. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks...

Wont turn on but tries too come on,power light blinkink


Internal power supply failure. Was there a lightning storm in your area recently or utility work being done recently? This two things usually kill TV's and other electronics with surges when power is restored. If the set is under warranty call the manufacture, if not, call you homeowners insurance agent to see if the damage is covered w/or w.o. deductible. At least you can get something toward repair/replacement costs. Future fix, purchase and install a surge arrestor in your main AC panel for the whole house or buy a power strip with a built in surge filter/protector for your expensive equipment.
