Red Light Flashing 6 times

The TV was on, working just fine, I was out of the room for a few minutes, came back in and the screen was out. I turned off, unplugged, then plugged back in. Just after the green power light flashes a couple times (as it normally does before the screen comes on), the power light flashes 6 times continuously. turn tv on no picture or sound and red power light flashes 6 times with a three minute delay and flashes 6 times.This code continues until you power off. I have changed the bulb.I have bipast the surge protector and plugged to wll for power

When the lamp fails in this unit, often the thermal fuse opens. The error code is 6 blinks. To replace this part requires a great deal of deal of disassembly.

    I was not in the chat, I just saw your post on fixya site. The fuse is mounted on the front of the lamp cage with long leads that come from the lamp cage up to the large wire harness on the back of unit. There the two leads (either both black, or one black and one gray) with a plug.

Is it hooked up with HDMI cable?

If so try unplugging the HDMI cable and re plugging the cable in, sometimes those cables work loose and if they are not tight, it will cause your screen to flicker. Happens to my TV once in awhile.

This just happened to our TV as well. TV was working, we left the room for a few minutes, and when we came back it was off and we couldn't get it to come back on. Green light flashes for several minutes...

try unplugging the tv for a few minutes and see if that does it. if not sometimes there is a reset button on the back. there could be dust inside the back cover that is also shorting out...last resort though. Good luck1

My Samsung hcn4226w won't stay on.

There are many protective circuits inside the set that will shut it down if a problem is detected. It sounds like there are intermittant detections of problems and the "restart" temporarily clears the problem. If the unit is no longer under warranty, open up the back with the set unplugged and try reseating all of the boards and connectors. The trip may have jared a few things loose. Update this with the results.

Tv cuts off and green light flashes

Yup, it seems a lamp problem can give a blinking green light over the 10 times (1 - 10 times for diagnostic codes), but in my case rather than replace the bulb if it works for a minute then resets with the green light blinking, do what I did.
Take the lamp out and inspect it, it has breather screens top and bottom, if it cant breath because there clogged with dust, clean them, and you can remove the screens, use q-tips and clean the inside. I saved the cost of a lamp and it's working fine!

Power light flashing/ no picture

I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.
