Question about Samsung HLM507W 50" Rear Projection HDTV
Samsung 50" rear projection TV, tries three timed to start then goes off, just will not lite up, picture wheel-running, 2.5 years old. Should I get repaired or not. I'm very good with tech! but where will it end. Patrick from West Ireland
For DLP television 70% of the time the problem is coming from lamp they are only made to last 6000-8000 life hours witch is a approx.2-3years of use and I think that is your problem right now I don't think it's necessary to buy the light engine

There are several things in this set that will cause this. I have ran into this problem 40-50 times on that specific unit. Most common problem is the lamp. Next most common problem is the DMD board which is a very expensive repair. Next most common cause is the ballast which powers the lamp. Next is the color wheel but usually that gets noisey before it fails. These DLP televisions aren't easy to diagnose but they're easy to work on. Now here's the thing, all four of these problems can be solved by replacing the light engine. If you are willing to put some money into it, the engine assembly is real easy to change. Just google the exact and complete model number and search prices of the light engine. I'm pretty sure the part number is BP96-00305J. Sometimes you can actually ship the engine from your tv in to be rebuilt. This can save you money. Any repair on this tv will probably cost 200-500 but they get a great picture. I have a samsung DLP in my livingroom. Good luck, Russmann.
