TV has been working great for the past 6 years, this morning when turning on the TV nothing happens except the standby light flashes about 9 times on and off. No click like I usually hear when turning on...


Hi Dave,

We have had this same problem twice now - the first time under warranty (no problem) and now currently. The 9-blink error code refers to needing to replace two diodes on the G board. Specifically, D6301 and D6116.

The warranty time, the repair guy came and resoldered the new diodes onto the G Board, reinstalled the board, and was on his way. We had no problems for the next 3 years.

THIS time I ordered the two diodes from Andrews Electronics (www.andrewselectronics.com) am removing the G board myself and taking JUST THE BOARD to a local TV repair guy. This is a LOT cheaper than calling Sears or taking the whole TV to the repair guy. Here are the links to the specific diodes:

D6301 - http://parts.andrewselectronics.com/search/electronic-parts/parts/7/6-500-567-21.aspx

D6116 - http://parts.andrewselectronics.com/search/electronic-parts/parts/7/8-719-081-97.aspx

They are a heck of a lot less expensive than other places and the customer service I received was great!

I hope this helps!!

Replaced the bulb and now it wont work, the green light on front just flashes


You most likely will need a new DM module and some capacitors in the power supply. If the DM module is not happy it does this blinking thing. I have repaired a few of these DM's myself which is cheaper than the whole module. Try to find a shop that is familiar with this problem.

Samsung 50" DLP Lamp died, new lamp will not light`


Bad news.  Mine did the same thing.  Mine is the 61", but the internals are basically the same.  I replaced the lamp and the problem was fixed.  Then after a couple days, it died again.  I replaced the ballast, to no avail.  Took it to the certified repair center and they said I needed a new DLP Light Engine.  They wanted $1250 to fix it, but I was able to order one online from partstore.com for $700 and fixed it myself.  No problems since.
Your certified repair center will charge a minimal fee to diagnose and then you can fix it yourself if you choose.
The easist fixes for the lamp problems are A) replacing the bulb and B) replacing the ballast.  Anything else, you'll want a certified tech to diagnose the problem.

Replacing light tunnel (instructions)


Hi, if you did not get help until now, i can send you step by step instructions and photos how to do it. I did several of these and it is not a big deal.But you will have to take apart a very sensitive optical device and if you are not confident that you can do it do not start this.bp67-00291a is the part number for the light tunnel.post a message here if you need that file with instructions
