Question about Samsung HLP5085W 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
The tv goes through the start up process and a symbol comes up indicating the bulb is bad. After about one minute, it goes into standby.
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
