    I don't have the model #, the t.v. was manufactured in 2006 and was told by a tech that the ballast needed to be replaced.

    And yes it is HD

    A price range to base it off of would be great.

    Just to have an idea of what my weekend will have for me.

    Thank you very much, I will look for installation manuals/guides.

    You have been very helpful.

    Well I will start off by saying the model of my tv is Samsung HCN4226WX/XAC I'm not sure of the year. The problem has occured just this evening, I turn on the tv and I get no picture or sound. Usaually before my tv turns on it will make a little music and then the picture will come on. I have tried to unplug the tv a few times, but get same results. Has anybody ever had this problem? If so is it something that I will be able to fix myself? Is the part to expensive. Any feedback would be great...

A Ballast is a circuit that provides voltage to Lamp. Ballasts are only used with TV's with a Lamp. According to your model number this unit does not use a lamp. That model number uses 3 rear-projected CRTs. The most common units with a ballast would be a DLP HDTV.

The Model number you specified HCN4226W is a unit made in 2003. However you stated in your subject line that this was a Samsung unit from 2006. Please verify your model number.

    I can surely find you the ballast and where to purchase it. As for installation, maybe someone else here can help out with that. But no one will be able to find you the correct part without the correct model number.

    They are roughly $100-$200.

No picture and buzzing sound on Sony XBR Wega

Is the bulb light flashing ? - Sony's bulb light is very accurate in telling you if the bulb is bad. The buzzing sound could be from the balist trying to strike the lamp. You also may want to open the lamp door and see if the bulb is shattered.

Tv shuts off temp light blinking

There is a fan in the back that should be running. Make sure that tha pathway is clear and that the fan is turning. There are temperature sensors inside that will shutdown the set if it gets too hot. Since this was recently repaired, I would call the repair shop. Most have at least 90 day guarantees. Since you did not have this problem before, they may have missed a connection.
Keep us posted.
