It's about 3000 to 5000 hrs. on the bulb this translates to about 3 to 5 yrs. of normal use. it can, however, be greatly reduced by the number of on/off conditions. lamps need to cool down that is why the fans run longer after shut down.
obviously if the TV doesn't turn on that can be lamp. weak or dim picture is another sign.

    lamp. dim picture is a lamp issue. in all the sets I've seen it's the lamp. some might tell you that the balast would cause this but it's not true. balast has to provide consistant power to keep the lamp lit. the lamp has presurized gas that becomes weak like that of flourescent do over time. on the side of your set is the lamp code use that code to order a new lamp. they are very easy to replace or have a tech do it for you. you can order it at samsung or other lamp distributors. stay away from LTI lamps.

We heard a loud pop and the tv turned off and


That sounds like the lamp bulb blew and you will need to replace it. You can find ads on this web site that sell DLP bulbs at a decent price and you can install it yourself, or you can call 1-800-samsung to find the nearest service center.

Have a 42 inch dlp samsung the tv is starting to turn it self off random. after being on for a long period of time


We have had the same problem with our 42" Samsung DLP - only two years old! We searched all over the internet for a list of ways to fix it. I found several things can help, including a switch that pops to the wrong position, cleaning the fan, etc. I put all the information together in a how-to format because it was so frustrating to go all over the internet looking for ideas on how to fix it.
