Question about Samsung HLN467W 46" Rear Projection HDTV

2 Answers

Samsung 46" DLP

TV has no picture but does have sound until all three lights start to flash and then the set turns off. Purchased a new lamp ($131.00) and that did not change anything? according to the book when the TIMER, LAMP, and STAND BY lights flash it is most likely a defective lamp. What else could be wrong? HELP! Tv has whining sound in back. When i start the tv it attempts to start several times (sound comes on then goes off) then shuts down and all three lights are blinking. TV will not turn off until i pull the plug. The only trouble shooting i have done is to pull the plug and let it set overnight. still does the same thing thanks

HLP, HCN HL-S The Start-up Problem or/and
3 LEDs in the front blinking.

Unplug the set, pull out the lamp module (not all the way - leave it on the track) and push it back in.

Power issues (Tv not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.

Re: Samsung 46" DLP

I have the same problem. I bought a 43" Samsung DLP and I"m having problems with the tv. Sometimes when I try to turn the tv on it will not come it cycles on and off and finally the lamp light comes on and and the temp light comes and stays. Sometimes I keep trying and some times it comes on and sometimes it won't. It also makes a whining noise at the back. Please help.

I have a SAMSUNG 46" DLP HL-P4663w, No picture but have sound. All three lights are flashing at on/off button. Installed new lamp ( BP96-00826A ) still no light. There is a loud humming sound.

This is and indication of a bad color wheel assembly, you can replace the color wheel yourself, there are lots of Youtubes videos on how to do this.

you have the same problem I have. The problem is fixed by changing the new light bulb. The problem appears again after 1500 hours of use. You can keep buying new light bulbs or avoid it by not buying another Samsung TV.

Did you order an ORIGINAL REPLACEMENT LAMP? There's lots of guys out there claiming to sell original lamps but there really not the original. For Samsung TVs (The majority of them) use Philips branded lamps. Check and make sure you lamp is a Philips lamp. Check out FixYourDLP blog for more information as there's lots o interesting reading there
