Question about Samsung SP50L7H 50" HDTV-Ready Television
The set will run so long then the pictute will go off leaving only the sound. If I switch the set off, then on again it will come back on, for a short time. This will happen many times in a night, to the point that it won't come back on, I wonder if anyone could offer any advice
I have the same problem with mine, although after many hours on the phone to samsung, set being sent away for diagnosis etc, this is not the problem !
The problem is a major component failure, it is called a dmb board, which obviously will set you back about £600 ! if you can find anyone who now stocks such a part, i have researched this for a while now, i have seen loads of sets on ebay etc being sold cheaply with the same faults as we are all having, it IS NOT a simple bulb replacement that will cure the problem, and is a common fault with this particular set, lets face it, if you, like me paid nearly £2000 for a tv, then you would suffer the price of replacing the bulb rather than throwing it in a skip !
It would be nice though if samsung held up their hands and recalled the set as it obviously has a major component issue that fails after a relatively short period of time.
They will not admit this of course, although i have provided evidence to them that substantiates an inherant fault with the set !
Alas.... never will i buy a samsung product again, as they are totally disinterested in assisting customers after buying their products in good faith, only to be fobbed off, or offered expensive options of technical diagnosis after i have already paid hundreds of pounds to get it diagnosed by comet homeserve, and obtained detailed findings, only to be told they will not accept these reports, as they are not samsung specialists !!!!! lmao
Good luck everyone, but you are probably better offer throwing it away, and buying a better quality television from another manufacturer.

Time for a new bulb.
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.
Hope ya fix it!
