Question about Samsung HLR5067WX 50" Rear Projection HDTV
Any insight into how to change the ballast?
IT is a little tricky but if you have basic had tools and a philips screwdriver you should be ok. You have to remove back panel and then pull out LIght Engine to access everything. Some models it is possible to not remove light engine, but i think yours you do. Also you have to remove the lamp competely and remove the little screw that holds the ballast connector to the housing for where the lamp plugs into the male connector. Located on the back of where the lamp plugs into on the light engine. Usually there are 4 screws that hold the ballast in place and you can remove those as well. Also there is some black plastic cooling housing that may require to be removed as well to accomidate this. But keep in mind all connectors are keyed so you don't have to worry to much, it only goes back together one way. Samsung was very good about this when designing set. I may even have a ballast i could sell you at a lesser price then anyone out there. If you get it out, Let me know and we can go from there. Do you hear it trying to fire the lamp? I would listen for that first and if you hear any kind of zzzziiiiiipppp sound, then ballast is probably fine. Maybe lamp could still be bad. I have seen new ones quirky sometimes. Keep me posted and i hope this post was helpful for you.. Cheers...Guru Jay
