Question about Samsung HL-R5078W 50" HDTV
Im no professional about T.V.'s period. but i own the Samsung HLR5078WX/XAA, and i watched a movie one night and fell asleep to it.
the next morning the tv was still on so i turned it off. The next time i proceeded to turn it on, It started like normal, made the beeping noise when the tv is initialized like it usually does(must be a samsung thing) and then just cuts out. and tries to (boot up) per say again. each cycle lasting about 3-5 seconds, the first cycle being the longest. and during this time i hear a louder than usual mid-high level whining sound that sounds like a fan but isnt. the sound winds up. , and stops as the tv ends the short cycle.
after about 6-8 cycles it finally turns off, and on the front, the lap(green), timer(green, and stadyby/heat(red) lights blink on and off.
The whining you hear is most likely the color wheel
it need to reach a curtain rpm before the lamp will kick on
i will almost gurentee one of the colors is broken on the wheel
