Question about Samsung 50" Slim-Depth DLP HDTV
Is the Lamp ok? Go to the rear of the set and turn on the set with your remote while looking at the vent slats. If you can see a bright light through the vent slats then your Lamp is working. If the lamp is on and you have sound and no pix, then the Digital bd is in what we call "Video Mute" and will have to be replaced. Also make sure that the Lamp Door is installed and the screws are tight.

Mine went out within a year of replacing the color wheel. Replace the Lamp. It will fix your problem. The only other issue would be a failing chipboard. Forget doing a tech replacement. You can DIY very easily and only pay for the lamp itself. The lamp average cost is between $55-115. Good range is $73. check amazon. There is a company I ordered mine from located in San Diego. Company is really great:

Yep, whenever the TV keeps going black or even turning itself off, it's time to replace the lamp! I have gone through 4 lamps in 4.5 years. So expect it annually... Oh, and at 4.5 years old (out of warranty of course) I had to have the whole "brain" replaced which set me back $350-400. The Circuit City warranty maintenance tech gave everyone his phone#, before they went out of business. My tech replaces lamps for $150.
