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 have a samsung hl-s6187w 61 inch and it keep shutting off.. the screen goes black but i still have sound for about 5 sec then shuts off.. can anyone tell me what the problem is?


I doubt it's the color wheel. When our wheel went bad the TV didn't come on at all. It could be the lamp. Try reseating it first. That fixed a problem the first time for us. Later we had to replace the lamp because the TV was getting dark. It could also be your ballast, but we've never had to change that. I'd start with the lamp.

No picture, replaced lamp on HL-S6187W. TV makes a audio sound when I turn it on. Lamp does not light.


Did you replace the lamp? Was the Lamp original? Some time if you dont replace the lamp with original you are going to have this issue. Is there any sound. If you have sound and no picture is the Color Wheel.

Thank you,
