Samsung DLP TV Takes multiple tries to power on

Awhile back I hardwired past the access door switch because it was broken. This stopped the power off while watching it. Now a month later it takes as many as 10 tries to get it to power up. The light stops flashing like it's on but no picture. I turn it off and the red standby light comes on. Patience is getting thin. Thoughts and ideas?

Sounds like the lamp might be burned out. The Lamp should be replaced every couple years. If they are not replaced they will eventually burn out. Replacement is not that difficult and just requires a screwdriver. The lamp is located at the back of the DLP TV on the left side. The lamp can be purchased online from Samsung for about $130 dollars. You might be able to find a aftermarket one for less. Just use your telivision's model number located on the right side of the TV on sticker to cross reference the bulb that is needed or there might be a sticker on the back at the lamp housing that has the lamp part number. And make sure to spend the extra money and get the Lamp with the housing together. You can buy just the lamp for cheaper but that will require you to remove the old lamp from the housing and they are fragile. Much easier installation with the housing/lamp combo.

Samsung sp46l6hv. lamp keep switchin off. the picture goes black still with volume on the goes off . tv goes back to stanby starts up then lamp goes off again this repeats . pls help


One of the most reasons that the samsung DLP tv will stop working is that the emergency switch on the back gets caught in the wrong position and makes your tv to turn off. Try to check the switch it is located under the lamp cover door. Good day and best regards.

Check for a defective lamp. Open the access door where the lamp is, remove it and see if visually it looks defective.

Ensure that the TV is off. It may be advisable to unplug the TV as well.
2 Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove the single screw affixing the lamp cover (the small, grill panel on the back of the set) to the chasis. There is also a grill that is held in place by tension. Just "pinch" the thumb clamp on the bottom of the grill and slide it out. This is the same procedure you would perform to change the lamp, except in this case you will not need to remove the lamp itself.
3 Inspect the spring-loaded blue safety switch to ensure it is making good contact when the panel is secured. The switch should deflect downward when the panel is replaced. If the contact with the panel is suspect, very gently bend the metal bracket on which the switch is mounted.
4 Replace the grill cover and the lamp door, and continue to enjoy your TV.
5.Check some basics first. Make sure the sleep timer on your TV hasn't been turned on, telling your set to turn off at a certain time. If your DLP TV is acting erratically, Samsung recommends turning the set off and unplugging it for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes plug it back in and turn it back on. Unplugging the set resets it, and that may fix the problem.
6 Check your power supply. Make sure your Samsung DLP is securely plugged into a working outlet. Plug the TV into a different outlet to see if the problem still exists. Make sure that a fuse hasn't blown in your house or a circuit breaker hasn't flipped.
7 Replace the lamp. If your Samsung DLP is shutting off or won't turn on, a bad lamp is the most likely cause. To replace the lamp, remove the lamp cover from the back of the TV by removing the screws with a Phillips screwdriver and slide it out and away from the TV. Remove the screws on the lamp assembly and slide it out of the TV. Disconnect the old lamp and insert a new lamp into the assembly. Slide the assembly back into place and replace the screws. Do the same for the lamp cover.
8 Check for signs of overheating. Samsung DLP TVs generate a sizable amount of heat. If the components inside the TV get to hot, the TV will shut itself off as a protective measure. Make sure your DLP is out 12 inches or so from the wall. Make sure that all of the vents on the set are clear of any obstructions. Allow the TV to cool down for 30 minutes before turning it back on.
9 Contact Samsung. If none of the above tips help, it's time to contact Samsung, as the problem is likely something that should only be fixed by a qualified service technician. More serious problems may include a bad power supply or a bad ballast. Attempting to repair those yourself will void your warranty and may cause more serious damage to your set.

The safety switch exists so the user does not accidentally remove the lamp door while the TV is on. Doing so could, theoretically, result in burn or electrocution. This spring loaded switch causes the TV to shut down when the door is opened.
Since the TV's chasis is plastic, expansion and contraction can cause the switch to lose firm contact with the lamp door. The TV's behavior could then be such that after being on for a while (getting warm) the plastic expands and the switch loses enough contact to cause the TV to shut down. The frequency with which this phenomenon occurs is not only dependent on the internal temperature of the TV, but also the ambient temperature of the room as well as the relative tension on the switch itself. The user's perception is that the TV starts up fine, but then "randomly" turns itself off after being on for a while.
If you have recently moved your TV, it is very common for random shut-downs to occur. This is because the move has shifted the flimsy plastic chasis of the TV, thereby loosening the contact between the lamp door and the switch.
Make sure your TV is off and cool when performing this procedure.

Why is my 42" dlp tv turns itself off after awhile?


the power supply is not working fine. your tv needs preventive service so that semiconductor, diodes and capacitors are changed on the power supply before it switches off completely on its own.

My tv don"t start i put new lamp and new balasts, when i press the power tv sound comes for few seconds no ligth and shuts off then three light at the front turns on lamp timer temp, some one can help me...


Be sure you have all cables plugged in inside . Is the lamp door switch broken. When you put the back on you could have damaged the switch. You can sort the wires to test. remove the lamp door and besure the tab on the door presses the switch downward.If switch is ok it sounds like a wire is loose are connector was not plugged back in.

Samsung dlp keeps shutting off


Could be several things but the most common causes are:

1. Make sure that the lamp is working:
-make sure it lights up as viewed through the lamp access panel or the back of the set and stays lit. New lamps for most units are available on eBay for less than 100.00 with free shipping.

or

2. That the lamp access door safety switch is properly held in place:
-make sure that the lamp access door is in place and that the screw is snug. The symptoms of a bad / broken or open switch is that the unit will light up and the fans will spin for about 15-20 seconds then the unit will power down.

Other notes: A general comment on cleaning the fans... that is only part of a heat problem or preventive maintenance. Make sure you also clean the heat syncs of any dust. These are the fin shaped items... some are black and others are silver... found near or behind the fans. Get yourself a one or two inch SOFT bristle paint brush and gently wipe the fins clean with the nozzle of a vacuum cleaner close to the area to **** up the dust. Clean fans won't do much good if these are coated with dust and most of them are after a few months of service.

I have two 50" units and I clean them every year in the spring... before the heat of the summer hits. Unlike other TV designs, DLP's move a LOT of air so this is important.

Turns off by itself


Above answers are wrong. Its actually a very basic, tiny, annoying cause. When you open the lamp door on the back of the TV, youll see a small toggle type switch that gets pushed in when the door gets re-installed and allows the TV to turn on. This is to make the power shut off in case someone tries to access the lamp with the set on. If memory serves, the toggle on my 50" samsung was blue I think. You can use duct tape or something but I actually used a very small zip tie to hold the toggle in place for a neater, less ghetto-fabulous fix. NEVER had it shut off by itself since.

take off the lamp access door on the back and find the safety switch that the door pushes on. unplug the connector from the switch and put staple into the connector to short out the cable. Switch is probably bad. worked for me. same problem.
