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 lamp..you 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.

Red light is on in front and have no picture


Good day..


That problem is usually cause of bad capacitors on the power supply section..

As you stated your TV works fine and after a minute the red light comes on...

That symptoms is cause of bad capacitors..Normally bad capacitors can check visually if the capacitors look like leak/bulged on the top that is the indication of bad one but not all bad capacitors are bulged some are not so in that case you have to used a special meter called capacitance meter..

This is the sample picture of bulged capacitors:

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.

Tv is on, after a few minutes it goes black and there is no sound. The indicator lamp is still green and stays solid the entire time. Without turning the TV off, in about a minute, you hear a small buzzing...


Someone else gave me the tip as I had the EXACT problem, but no buzzing. Unscrew the panel on the front bottom of the tv. Once that is off, there is another screw that opens a little panel. Unscrew the single screw with an allen wrench and pop out the bulb and casing. Mine was full of dust etc. Used an LCD cloth, but compressed air would do the same thing, put it back together and it works great!

Sony projection tv does not turn on


There are a lot of sites that sell bulbs for those. Use a search engine and the model with the word bulb. Be aware that it may be the ballast though.

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.
