Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV
We have already replaced a lamp about a year ago and we have replaced the colorwheel and fan as well. I think it may be the lamp again but I am not sure. When we turn the tv on we can hear the sound but no picture...it stays on for about 5 to 10 seconds and then turns off.
Projection TV makers charge an arm and a leg for their replacement
lamps. They make it easy to do but as a result the custom lamp
assy is expensive. The trick is to just buy the bulb for your
model TV from any number of us aftermarket sources at a fraction of the
lamp price and install it in the old lamp yourself. really
easy. Some models are real bulb hogs though. Look them up
on the net (include the word complaint or repair) before you buy, or
you might be sorry. Many class action lawsuits out there - even
against some of the name brand makers.

You have one of the dreaded N series that is full of problems. Even if you are out of warranty, they have been known to work with you.
