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 have a 50 inch DLP samsung and it wont power on after making a lot of noise (I replaced the lamp) worked fine for a few days now the red light and the right side green light is blinking. any sugge


The answers above are correct. It's either the lamp or the color wheel. Testing the lamp is pretty straight forward. Use an Ohm meter to see if the it's filament has continuity. It's unlikely that a good color wheel would fail immediately after changing the lamp. Look to see if some wiring is out of place and rubbing the wheel causing the noise you described. A jammed but otherwise good color wheel would cause the TV to shut down and display an error code.

Hi,
Usually if all 3 indicator lights come on this could be the color wheel is not functioning or the DINe chip needs to be re-soldered. Be sure the lamp door is closed all the way, but the color wheel needs to be looked at first.

Vivitek 56 inch dlp projection is humming. why and how to fix


In my experience, the humming means your color wheel is going. The bearings inside the wheel are probably giving out.
My Vivitek started humming a couple of months ago and first I replaced the lamp.
Still hummed.
I read in other forums that humming is linked to color wheels and that seemed like where the noise was coming from.
I purchased a new wheel online and replaced it myself...
..no more humming, the picture is great and now I can listen to the movie again...not the tv!

Loud pop and picture went out.I have sound but no picture.


I had this happen a few months ago. More than likely the color wheel died. I opened up the back of my Samsung DLP expecting to find a blown lamp, but came to find out that only the color wheel was in need of replacement.

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.
