Question about Samsung HL-S5087W DLP TV
We have a Samsung HL-S5087W 56" DLP - we replaced the lamp because we were having problems watching the TV during the day - it was dark and hard to see, unfortunately the new lamp hasn't helped. Secondly, prior to replacing the lamp we started noticing a pie shaped bright line running down the right side, it starts about 1 inch wide at the top right corner and disappears about 3/4 of the way down. It almost looks to me as if this bright line should be what the entire screen looks like, then I could see it during the day! The line is still there after replacing the lamp. Any assistance would be great, we love our TV !

I have the same problem and was told by a technician that I need to replace the light engine. Probably around $ 700.00.

The unit has a defective light tunnel contained within the light engine. This part is not easily replaced and you will a qualified tech to replace it. Many service centers condemn the light engine at a much hight cost. Do not buy or let someone tell you the light engine must be replaced. This repair requires only the light tunnel.

all 3 lights blinking means lamp has a fault the service manual says replace the lamp. If you need the service training manual for that model let me know and I will post the link as the training manual has excellent trouble shooting breakdowns for that model DLP
