Resolder the horizontal driver transformer and all of the coils that start with "L77xx" on the left side of the sweep board, there is also a jumper staple just above L7711 that must be soldered it does not have a designation number but you`ll see the solder is bad on one end, very common issue with your model.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?I have had my samsung DLP (model SP50L6HD) for 4 years. This morning my children were watching TV and the tv started turning itself on and off. I switched it...

It could be the temp sensor going bad. This sensor sits on top of the metal housing which the bulb assembly slides into. The bulb assembly will have a hole on top and this is where the sensor is above. There is a small blue and white wire that plugs into it. If you pull the wire out and put a paper clip or wire in the coupling you will basically bypass the sensor connecting the blue and white wire. If your tv turns on then that is your problem. Its cheap too. Here were my symptoms..1] Turn tv on 2] Bulb would light up..(which eliminates the ballast) regular picture would show up (which eliminates the bulb and color wheel) 3] 30 seconds later tv would shut down with 3 flashing lights. After bypass the tv turned on as always and hasnt shut down yet. Always un plug tv first. Get the replacement part to avoid overheating and possible fire

Dont worry, the problem is coincidental to you installing the Wii. You need a new lamp.
What you are seeing is the lamp ballast/power supply attempting to start and restart your lamp. The resistance of your lamp to it's power source has increased to the point that it is shutting down, but has not blown out yet. You can find these at
Good luck

Powers off by itself.

Power supply or sweep suppys have parts that are overheating and breaking down or cold solder connections. Call someone who knows this set like the local authorized magnavox/Phillips dealer/servicer. Good Luck
