Here is the procedure for resetting the lamp timer.

This is a quick reference guide to show you how to reset your Samsung DLP TV’s lamp hour meter or hour counter. Resetting the counter is a very simple procedure.
Begin with the TV powered off.
Point your remote towards your TV.
Press:
Mute + 1 + 8 + 2 + Power.

Your TV set should now say “Loading Factory”.

Browse down to “Option” then press Enter (or the right cursor button).

NOTE: The Mute+1+8+2 buttons needs to be pressed down consecutively and fairly quickly. If your TV does not enter the service menu after using this combination, you can substitute MENU instead of MUTE. This seems to work for some sets. Also, the right cursor arrow also acts as the ENTER button, so try it if you’re having difficulty with the ENTER button.
To exit the service menu, hit press the EXIT button or just turn off your TV (remember not to turn on your TV immediately afterwards!).

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

    You should be able to select lamp clear and enter. That should reset the lamp timer for you. Please update your rating if this fixes your issue, if not please post back to me and I will research some more. asnowman

Intermittent vertical black lines samsung hlp5067w


even technicians who are familiar with those units, before installing new lamps, they use a 'calibration unit' for that or any particular model lamp and calibrate them right after installation. If you don't have the proper calibrator and adjust them right after you installed them, you will get that result. Even experience techs come across that problem if the calibration is not done properly. Also, each lamp for a different color value, has its own calibration/sync values.

When the lines are showing, check to see if you can see them with the on screen menu being displayed, if you can then it is the DMD board, if you cannot then it is just the digital board.

Those lamps build up a internal resistance and they get to the point where it will not come on at all, replace the lamp, and you will be good.

Samsung hl-s4666w DLP "Check Fan #2" on-screen message appears before shutting off. How do I fix this?


Look at the Large Lamp fan and if it is not rotating it is bad and needs to be replaced. If is ok then check the other two smaller fans. You do have a bad fan.
