HDTV problem-keeps turning off on initial power up

I have a Samsung HL-S6187W HDTV that keeps turning off whenever I turn it on to watch tv. It turns off about 5 to 6 times before it finally stays on, it looks like it is getting worse and i'm afraid it might not turn on anymore. It seems like it needs time to warm up before it stays on--please help.

The fact that the set works after a while suggests that there are bad connections that the heat "fixes". If you can solder, open up the set and resolder any connections that appear grainy or have rings. That should resolve it unless there is a component that is starting to fail. Update this if the soldering does not fix it.

I would suggest looking over the power supply for bulging capacitors. Had the same issue and the power supply needed to be changed.

Samsung DLP TV won't turn on


This sounds to me like one of two possibilities. First, check your ballast. If you're going through bulbs faster than you think you ought to be, you may have a ballast that is overloading. Its the 3" x 8" circuit board that connects directly to the bulb. They are plentiful and often cheap. Thats what I'd try first. If that doesnt' do it, I would invest in a new power supply board. That the board that the tv power cable hooks directly in to. This should give you a start, Comment back if you still need further help. Good luck.

My tv turns off


Power issues (Tv True True (``````````` (``````````` 0 95250 95250 clip_image002.gif not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung True True (``````````` (``````````` 0 95250 95250 clip_image002.gif is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.
