The lights on the front are flashing. Then I pulled the tv out from the wall, cleaned it up (thought that might help). Now the picture comes on for about 2 minutes, then the screen gets all screwy with lots of colors. When I try to turn the set off, it won't. I have to unplug it. Can you help. The set is only about 4 years old. Jay Walden firstname.lastname@example.org

Re: tv won't work
Check your lamp it might have gone bad if not then on these sets the color wheel goes bad if you get junk on the screen like broken bits of info and you might get a weird sound like computer noise then it might be your color wheel it is a small round glass wheel i just checked to see if your model is in this list of samsung color wheel and yes it is

Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.
this just happened to us, we tried the reset button, didn't work. we unplugged from surge protector and plugged the tv in the regular wall socket and after a few minutes the green light quit and we were able to turn tv on
problem with mitsubishi wd65737. thought the bulb was bad, bought a new bulb replaced it and now the screen doesnt want to come on. light on the front of the tv turns green, you have sound but no picture then the tv turns off the light on the front is now steady red. resetting the sytem worked yesterday but not today.
It sounds like you TV is overheating and the video is suffering and the lamp is overheating as well. Also, if your TV is over 2-3 years old, the mirrors (behind and below the big front screen) desperately need to be cleaned. Clean all filters and fans as well. (Look on side and behind the unit). Is the TV in a "hot" environment and/or dirty environment? DLP TV's are NOT sealed units. They need to be cleaned every few years to work well to have a good, clear, bright picture.
If the green power light is blinking and you have no picture, then your light bulb has burned out and needs to be replaced. It is not a cheap bulb to replace. If the TV is less than 1 year old it should be covered by the warranty
