Re: no picture and sound

It sounds like the lamp is bad. a quick way to check is to put your ear close to the bak of the set by the lamp door and have someone turn on the set. if you hear an arcing sound each time the set cycle, then the lamp is bad..the number for the lamp is on a small sticker on the side of the set by the lamp door. it is easily replaced and the instructions come with the new would be best to get an original lamp from samsung (1 800 samsung) but there are replacements on the web

TV turns on, hear sound but no picture. Bulb isn't coming on. TV goes off after about 2-3 minutes. Bulb was just replaced 5 months ago.

Need the model number of the set and also if any lights on the TV come on or blink when the picture goes out or not.

Sounds like your lamp is bad. I think this is the set where you have to take the whole back off to replace the lamp. Once you take the back off, its on the left hand side.

Mitsubishi 57" HDTV - has sound and timer light flashes

I had the same problem and my local repair guy soldered a defective sensor so that it goes around that problem. I also had to buy a new bulb. Now my picture is "cloudy" and the repairman has no idea why. I am waiting for them to call back on it.
