Re: Trying to replace lamp fan
First let make sure it's the Lamp fan. What many people think is the fan, And by the way there are three fans in this model, What sound like a fan is in fact a color wheel. So listen to the set as it starts up, these Samsungs make certain sounds when they start. First after you hit the power button you get the "Samsung Tones" from the speakers, second ALL the Fans start 1 to 2 seconds later the color wheel starts then stabilizes, third you may here the lamp fire. So if the sound takes two to three seconds after you turn the set on it's the color wheel BP96-00250A Now when it shuts down its like this First the shutdown "Samsung Tones" then watching from the back after a few seconds the lamp will shut off, then the color wheel stops but all the other fans remain on for about 2 minutes. I've worked on thousands of these and in only one or two was the problem a fan. but on the other hand I have enoghf bad color wheels I was able to make a pertty inpressive Christmas decoration

Replacement lamps with housing will cost between $175-200 at a retail store, this does not include installation. You can buy a lamp without the housing for near $75-100 but this requires you to remove the old lamp from the housing and installing the new lamp into the old housing, which can be tedious and potentially damaging if you do it incorrectly. BUY THE LAMP WITH THE HOUSING it will save you time and frustration.
first step.remove the screw and lamp door cover at the right side of your TV . After removing the screw and lamp door cover, you will see the lamp cover (it is color black with a handle at the bottom).then turn the knob/handle of the lamp cover on counter clockwise direction to remove it. Then you will see the lamp of your projection TV. Remove the old lamp and replace it with a new one..Make sure that the lamp is properly installed, the return the lamp cover and turn the knob on clockwise direction to lock it up,then return the cover ,screw and its done...
I have not repaired this particular model. Some of the problems for refusing to stay on are....Your color wheel may have lost its RPMs and or the cooling fan may be running slow. It is essential the fan is running at high speed. Without proper cooling your set may shut down. The power supply to the fan may also need a capacitor and resistor replaced to sustain speed in addition to replacing this fan! And when you replace the lamp be sure you do not use your bear hands to install this. Use a pair of plastic gloves or a clean pair of cotton ones. The oils on your hand to the bulb will shorten its life. I offer food for thought.....Hope this will clue you in a repair. Thanks for asking!
Had similar problem. Thought it was the lamp. Examined old lamp but it appeared to be good. Ordered a new one anyway. Changed the lamp but the TV screen would not come on. It would make the usual noise as it was going to come on normally but it would cycle 3 times & then turn off. The LED lights in the front panel would indicate a defective lamp. Then read about the ballast. Changed the ballast & still same problem. Tried starting the TV without the lamp installed & noticed that the color wheel did not spin. Removed old color wheel & discovered it was broken. This appears to be the cause of all of my problems. I wish I new earlier of the test-turn on the TV without the lamp being installed & check to see if the color wheel is spinning. Would have save money on the lamp & ballast.

most manufactures consider the lamp to be a consumable product so the will give you instructions in the box with the new lamp..basicaly,,you unplug the set..remove the lamp cover door,,remove the old lamp,,install the new lamp,,replace the lamp cover door, plug in the set...some companies want you to reset the lamp timer and that info is in the owner manual..get an original lamp and not a generic one..call the manufacturer with you model number and they will most likely sell you one and ship it to you
