Question about Samsung DLP HL-P4663W 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Samsung blinking lamp light - nothng else

Hi,

The color wheel in my Samsung 56” DLP crashed a few months ago. Yesterday I finally got the replacement and installed it, following pictorial instructions I luckily found on the web. I was very careful and made sure all of the connections were replaced as I re-assembled the TV. On the first startup I got audio, but no picture, just a blinking lamp light on the front power button. After unplugging and re-starting, I get nothing at all except for the blinking lamp button; not even any sound from the fan, so nothing is starting up. The projection lamp was working fine when the color wheel died (it is about four or five years old though). Before I spend several hundred bucks on a replacement lamp, I want to know if there may be some linkage between the re-installation of that color wheel and the failure of the TV to startup. I can’t get to any kind of service menu because there’s no video at all. Any ideas about what might be going on? Thanks

    Hey luckster5,



    Thank you sooooo much! Reversing that little ribbon cable brought the picture back. However, the video came up with a full-screen message saying something like "The system has been shut down because of overheating. Check the vents in the rear of the set" etc. Do you or anyone else out there have an idea of what might be causing that? Thanks ahead of time for anymore sage advice. I love this site.

Check the ribbon cable coming from the color wheel, if you plug it in backwards it will do this.

I own a Samsung HL-R5067W 50'' DLP. Set is about 3 years old. Recently I heard a loud pop while viewing, picture distorted, but never went blank. I turned set off. When turned on again a loud whining noise...


Check your color wheel. There is a DIY guide for replacing the color wheel. Mine did the same thing yours is and my color wheel was all busted up. Unfortunately after replacing the color wheel my set continues to do the same thing, but this could mean I need to replace the ballast as well.

TV won't stay on


Hello Fonzell!
Regarding the tv turning, my question is, do you hear a clicking sound? if so, it's most probable tio be your ballast, that might not have enough voltage to keep on with your lamp, and that's why it shuts off.
You could try replacing it and seeing if it resolves your issue, I believe they're running around 70 dlls..
have a great one ! :)

with lamp out (door closed) the ballast should "strike" or give an arc sound, trying to fire the lamp. If it does not do that maybe the color wheel is not spinning up - has to do that first.........then the set will try to fire the lamp

Won't turn on


Make sure that you have the orange flat cable turned the right way when you plugged it in. I accidentally turned one the wrong way and that was the response I got. Hope this is all it was if this does not fix it I would measure the ballast and make sure the 200 or so volts is coming across.
