Question about Samsung HLP4674W 46" Rear Projection HDTV
I have a DLP TV Samsung HLP4674w and it made a popping noise and the lamp replacement lights went on. I had a spare lamp handy to be ready for this problem and replaced it according the manual (and the same way I replace the old lamp almost a year ago to the day). Unfortunately the picture did not return and my television is still flashing the lamp replacement lights.
The only other indication of a problem is something like a clicking noise that can be heard while the TV is trying to turn on. I have a repair appointment scheduled in 2 weeks but I was hoping there was something I could do to fix it myself before then, or at the very least make sure that the repair guy has the right parts. Any advice?
My friend and I just replaced the DLP lamp on his TV and I cannot believe how easy it was. When we got the thing out it looked like the flux captacitor from back to the future. That being said, it ended up being really easy to replace. It came with detailed instructions and only cost about 180 for the full assembly. We also called the company we bought it from and they answered a couple of our questions. they are at dlp lamps .com

I had the same problem, however, I heard a noise like the shattering of glass. After replacing the lamp without resolution, I took the guts out only to find that the color wheel shattered. I ordered a new one myself for $90 and will attempt to replace it, it definitely beats the $450 service fee that I was going to be charged. At worse, I'll return the lamp and color wheel and contribute that $450 to a new 56" DLP with a 5-year warranty.

If you hear a ticking and or buzzing sound as it is trying to start up then most likely the replacement lamp is bad. Take it out and reseat it one more time to see what happens. The noise you hear is the ballast attempting to fire the lamp up.
