Boss let me help u step by step.
Firstly its a common problem that comes with the kind of Samsung DLP ypu have. now the issue as mentioned by you is that it blinks for 15 minutes and goes back to stand by which means as per my experiance it goes dark. there can be several pronlems related to the issue.. which i will explain one by one before that i wanna let you know that some times there is song Beeping sound which in your case i assume it does not occur cos you have not mentioned.

have you ever replaced your lamp ? if not your Lamp has been working well lately but as per my experiance the Lamp has gone really bad so i think you need to check out the lamp which is a halogen lamp in almost all the cases so it may look ok from out side but there is a chance that the lamp need to ne replaced. please try going to the link where you will find the datails of the lamp, compitability, price etc. http://www.samsungparts.com/Default.asp

Also please Try checking Fan #2 when the TV shuts off, it is the fan that cools the lamp. It should still be running to cool the lamp, if not, that could be your problem. The lamp is overheating due to FAN 2 failing. Normally you will get a message on your TV set that says the fan is failing, however, in rare cases the sensor also fails with the fan. the philips lamps available in the market are the best for the procuct you are currently using. you can also get the best quality and at right price from Discount-Merchant.com

now that you are done with the lamp the second reason for the blinking and stand by mode is due to the failure of the Ballast. Lamp is still good and the ballast failed or both are bad. If the lamp physically looks OK, not blown, then it's quite possibly a bad ballast. I have had bad lamps that looked perfectly good
So as my second guess is WEAK ballast. The lamp that D-M sold you is indeed new. The ballast may be weakened due to normal wear and tear. A new lamp requires more Umph to turn on than a older lamp that has many hours on it. At times, some people may receive a new lamp in the mail and put it in and it doesn't work even though their old lamp worked and just had low luminosity; this is the sings of a weak ballast. If you turn your TV on/off many times a day, you will weaken your ballast and may blow your lamp faster. For this reason Bars show up to 10,000 hours on their lamp. The leave the TV on for hours an DLP's are meant to run that way. They are like cars and their spark and starter system. If you are leaving the room for 5 minutes, don't turn off your TV. It takes a lot out of your ballast and lamp to turn back on, plus it's bad for the lamp to be turned on and off without the proper cool-down time. Also after time the capacitors on the ballast seem to rott, which cause the ballast to start failing intermittently.

Here is a good link to great information:

i could be surprise if it does not solve the problem that you have mentioned.. as many customer who come to my workshop with the simillar problem where sorted out with above tips..
have nice time.. >> cheers!!

It is most likely a bad capacitor in the power supply that will need to be changed.

    When you power up the computer press F8 key then if you can able to see safe mode and other thing then it is your screen resolution problem.
    For that5 enter in enable vga mode. then go to dispaly property then change screen resolution to 1024*768 the apply and ok.

    And if you can not able to see that safe mdoe and other menu then your samsung dpl has some hardware isssue.

Viewsonic projector Pro 8200 will not start / get out of standby mode


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power led, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.

I have an LG DLP. that turns off after 15 -30 seconds


If the second light is blinking to orange or red, that is usually the lamp indicator light on an LG DLP tv. That indicates your bulb needs replaced, or something surrounding the bulb has failed (like the cooling fan for the bulb for example) IF you have a spare bulb handy, I'd replace the bulb, keeping in mind if you touch any part of a new bulb with your bare hands, you just cut the life of the bulb by more then half.

Had a power outage while watching tv. Then 3 blinking lights.


This is an on-going problem with DLP sets. Normally you shut the set off and the cooling fan cools the lamp down and then it shuts off. In your case, of which it's not your fault, however your lamp has taken a major hit by not properly cooling down, in turn, you need to replace your lamp at this time.
I suggest in the future if you have an electrical storm and a chance of a power outage while your watching tv, I would'nt play that model or any other model of a DLP set.

RCA DLP HD50LPW166 Works fine for 15sec


Same Problem here. After some investigating and speaking with one Lamp supplier they told me to replace the Lamp Ballast first (this is mine EUC 120 P/H11 9137 008 09405). I found one on Ebay. Since this may also wear out the bulb, I may have to replace that also. If I can get my TV working (HD50LPW166YX6) for around $150.00 for both, I'll be happy even if i get only 6 month of use out of it. Did I mention the TV was free? :o) Hope this helps.
