DLP TV Samsung HLP4674w No Picture

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?

Re: DLP TV Samsung HLP4674w No Picture

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

Re: DLP TV Samsung HLP4674w No Picture

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.

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.

TV made a big popping sound, and then a crackling

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 : That crackling sound could be of the color wheel:The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will get color distortion ,black and white picture and sometimes you will hear humming noises. But if you don't hear any strange noises,tv is around 6000 hrs,2-4 yrs it could be time to replace the lamp.The lamp you need is BP9601073A you can find original here: .Have a blessed one!

Tv went pop

All you can do is get it repaired or replace. Take the receipt (if you still have it) to the retailer you bought it from and ask about it. Alternative, phone Samsung (number is probably in the instruction manual that came with the TV, or look on their website) and ask if they can do anything about it.

Black screen with a Blinking lamp in the front

Hi..if your lamp is on but no picture, then your lamp is good. Your problem is the DMD board (digital mirror display board) is bad. This is very common with Samsung DLP.

Samsung dlp

HLS4266W 43" dlp. In less than 1 yr whining grew worse, but did know what it was. Year passed with warranty and lamp went out. Replaced lamp. Worked for 3.5 hrs. Turned on next day and did not work. Got another lamp, but did not work. Figured out might be color wheel. Replaced it too. TV started up. Watched that night. Turned on next day, heard loud pop. Lamp never came on. Withdrew and reinstalled lamp a couple times to see if that worked. Did not. Currently, with new lamp and color wheel installed, lamp light blinks, but no lamp comes on. What now?
