How do you replace a bulb in samsung projection tv hls5668wx

There is a video of the procedure here: . Make sure to get the exact matching lamp code number and type. This is listed on the right side of the TV and on the lamp case.

Then turn off the TV and let it cool for at least 30 minutes. Make sure not to touch the glass with your bare hands (particularly with the new lamp). Remove the single screw from the lamp cover and then remove the lamp cover. Remove the lamp cover duct by holding the locker and pulling it towards you. Next remove the screw holding the lamp in the housing. Separate the lamp from the housing by holding the handle and pulling it towards you. Reverse the process with the new lamp. Make sure the lamp cover is seated properly and the screw tightened to get the TV to come on.

I hope this helps.

Turn up contrast to 95 and turn down brightness accordingly. If it is oddly dim, you may have a problem with the backlight.

My samsung dlp hl-s5686w turns for a minute video disappears audio continues and three lights flash the standby/temp,timer,lamp. all at the same time.

I'm having the same problem. Tried several things from dusting the inside with an air blower, removing the bulb and putting it back in, making sure the side panel is installed correctly and none of this has kept it from shutting off. Samsung's site says the three lights flashing means replace the bulb but I'm not buying it. My picture looks perfect....jsut that the TV keeps turning off. It all seems like a heating problem but my fans are still working. I'm scratching my head thinking what to try before forking out $150 for a new bulb.

if you're getting the 3 indicator lights coming on, more than likely you'll need to replace your tv lamp. open the panel and have a look in there. lamp probably blown.

White dots on tv screen-HL=55686W

You have a faulty dmd board. That board is responsible for all the tiny mirrors and some of those mirrors are in the stuck on position. Replace the dmd board and the dlp chip and you will be good to go. I would recommend having an authorized service center do this as there can be some painful alignedment needing to be done.

When it powers off by itself, do the LED's on the front blink? All 3 or any combination of the 3?

I have a hl-s5686w samsung dlp tv, the problem is that it have dead points or dead pixels (a lot of white points)on the screen,if somebody know what is the solution to fix this problem. please let me...

ok well it seems to be an issue either with yoru DMD board or your Digital Video board, go to the menu and if those white spots are also showed on the menu, the issue is with your DMD board, but if they're not showing, the issue would be with your Digital Video board
