Question about Samsung HLR6178W 61" HDTV
To check and see if it your bulb, remove the screw and pull the lamp assembly from the back. ON the very back where the cover is to access the lamp tape the switch so that it is all the way up and turn the television on. You should here a buzz and see a blue spark. If this is taking place, remove the tape and order another bulb. You will also see the lamp light up from the back without removing anything and just by attempting to turnt he television on. Other things that you may need to check is the lamp cover switch, DMD board, color wheel, fans, but you will need a service manual to check these things. Also, another thing you can try is to unplug the televison and plug it back in after 3 minutes. It acutally sounds like its the switch that closes its circuit when the lamp cover on the back of the television is removed.
