Question about Samsung HLP4663W 46" Rear Projection HDTV

3 Answers

Tv was working went off LAMP flashing and would not come on.

I called a TV repair person and described what had happened. Let them hear the clicking noise that my set would do when you try to turn it on. Bought a $150 bulb replaced it and now my set is making a horrible loud noise. I have read through countless troubleshooting's and i am lost at what this could be. Could it be the balliste or the color wheel? I dont want to keep throwing money at a tv if i am going to keep trying to have problems. Is there a way to find out for sure what is the problem?

Lets go back to the beginning... What were the original symptoms? Was it just the clicking or were the lights on the front of the set flashing too? With the new lamp, is there any thing else other than the clicking? If not, then the problem is likely to be the ballast. The clicking could be the lamp attempting to "fire". With a defective ballast, the lamp won't fire and the set won't come on. If you choose to replace the ballast, DO NOT use the old lamp. It is relatively common for a defective lamp to smoke the ballast under certain conditions. Also, it is possible that the original cause was the ballast that failed and took out the lamp with it.

Please keep us posted.

Thanks,
Dan

Depending on the age of your tv, if you hear a rapid clicking, it seems like your ballast is starting to turn on your tv but it's not able to. (1) Check your lamp, (2) reset the lamp timer, (3) make sure the cover panel is all the way. the positioning sensor might not be detecting the cover all the way in.
Personally I think you're experiencing a ballast problem.

Mitsubishi WD-62525 TV will not turn on


Hi,do you hear any strange noises? If you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast.Here's the instructions to replace it for a samsung ,it works like your mitusibishi:http://www.fixyourdlp.com/guides/samsung/bp47-00033a.php The ballast has a sensor that detects when it's not able to power the lamp or if lamp is not responding,it will flash red when that sensor detects that.When you say: "it began to roll like the vertical and horizontal hold did not work then the sound went out" Do you mean you where getting horizontal lines? If you did that could be the Dmd.his is how it works: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp1.htm Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Usually when there's a green light it could indicate a problem with the power supply,sometimes some capacitors do go bad. Check all of this and comment on this answer to see how it went.

Hi,do you hear any strange noises? if you heart clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the ballast that's the board that powers the lamp.Do you hear buzzing,whirling,or high pitch sounds?If you do it could be the color wheel which is a little disc looking that when the light of the lamp goes through it creates the colors on the tv.This are the most common failures on samsungs.

I was watching tv when the screen suddenly went blank. I tried to power off and back on. The power button blinks a red light and nothing happens


The TV has sound, but no picture.
The lamp is the most common part that causes this symptom. If you have purchased a new lamp already, click on the “Signs of Lamp Failure” link below to check your lamp or contact who you purchased your lamp from for a warranty claim. Look at the indicator lights on the front of the TV and use our chart by clicking the link below to find out what error the TV is displaying to help you. If you have not purchased a new lamp, the lamp is the most common and cheapest repair for this symptom. A defective circuit board can also cause this symptom in which you should contact a certified/trained TV technician.
If your lamp shows any of the signs listed below, there is a high probability your lamp is defective.

Common Signs Of Lamp Failure
- Cloud or haze near the center of the lens.
- The burner (the stem in the center of the lamp) is broken
- The burner has a white bump on it (usually near the bottom)
If the lamp does not have any of the characteristics described above, you check by brand below for LED flashing light codes to keep troubleshooting.
