Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV

1 Answer

56" DLP Turns on for just a few seconds, then off with the dreaded 3 lights

Here's better discription of the problem:

I power on the TV, and it starts warming up. There are no odd sounds (like if the color wheel is bad), and the audio is fine. The picture starts to come up, but it is very dim. Then after about 15-30 seconds, it powers off and the three lights start blinking. If I try to turn it on a second time, the screen is just black, but the audio is still there.

We looked at the lamp and it doesn't look like it's out...no burns, filament looks fine. Could it be the ballast?

    Thanks! Looks like we'll try the lamp first. Looks like that's much easier to replace anyway! :-)

    Thanks bobbyj! That's exactly what it was. Glad we didn't get the ballast first.



    We ordered from DiscountMerchant.com, and I highly recommend them. They beat everybody's price, and we had the lamp within 2 business days!

Maybe, but I would replace the lamp first. the system looks at current draw from the lamp if it is too high it will shut down. these lamps are hard to detemine weakness by physical appearance. they are gas under presure. if after replacing the lamp the unit still has this problem then the balast. I have also seen the DMD board cause this problem. but the lamp is the most likley problem.

52 HD Samsung tv turns off


I have the same problem with my 56" HD Samsung. It shuts off automatically and then on the power button the word Lamp is light up in green. Sometimes I can turn it back on but other times it won't and I have to wait a bit. It's been embarassing a couple times when people were over for a movie. I believe it might be some kind of overheating problem but would like someone to confirm this.
