POWER LIGHT BLINKS 5 TIMES

THE POWER LIGHT BLINKS 5 TIMES. IT SAYS IN THE MANUAL THAT IF THAT LIGHT BLINKS 3 THAT THE LAMP IS NOT IN CORRECTLY. IT DOESNT SAY ANYTHING ABOUT BLINKING 5 TIMES. YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT THE BLINKING OF 5 TIMES MEANS?

    Had the same problem. On/standby lamp blinking 5 times.



    TV would be on for minute or two with sound, then go "off" for a minute or two, then repeat this cycle endlessly.



    It was the lamp - needed to be replaced - really easy - couple of screws. I think the usable life is ~4,000 hours - ours had 6,100.

    well thanks for all the input. my tv was still was under warranty. the tech. came to my house, i told him what was happening. he opened up the tv from the front where the lamp is at. he pulled it out and the bulb was out. replaced it and back to new again. damn if i didnt have that warranty, it would of cost me just for the bulb $250.00 and thats not even counting labor. labor would of been another $100.00 in something. so the word for today is "WARRANTY" lol thank god i purchased it!



    thanks again for the input. it definetly helped when i called it in so i could give them an idea on what was wrong.

That's the LA-3 LCD projection unit. 5 blinks on that model means a lamp driver error. You would need the service manual to diagnose exactly whats wrong with the system. I have included a link where you can get the entire 121 page service manual for your set if you would like it. It cost 15.99 and they will email it to you and provide free support to help you diagnose it. Here is the link if you would like the service manual.

Tv doesnt show anything


Got (if model listed is correct) any blinking lights?

Set has a self check:

Here's something that might also be useful. After you turnon the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device andMenu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.
For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.
Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:
12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filtercover is open.
34 = Lamp abnormality
36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 = Lamp Temperature High
39 = DMD Temperature High
41 = Short is detected
44 = DVI cablebetween FMT and Engine disconnected

3 flashing lights


the 3 blinking LEDs mean the lamp may be defective. Be sure the lamp is making contact with the sockets within the lamp compartment, also make sure the lamp is the correct one for your model. The set can be reset by unpluggimg the power cord for 5 minutes then plug it back in, if the 3 LEDs still blink check the lamp if its making contact and its the correct lamp for your model, suspect the ballast

No Picture, power button blinks 5 times and just clicks


If you dont have the manual, download it from internet. It should tell you what the blinking light is indicating. My friends tv was blinking 3 lights around power button and the manual I downloaded correctly stated it was the lamp that needed to be replaced. I also found some other interesting info via the internet. There is a way to get into the Service Mode of a Samsung TV. Try doing a Google search for Service Mode for your model... Good Luck. PS the lamp itself was pretty expensive but installing it was not hard to do.
