My 46" Samsung TV -

The first thing to do is with the set unplugged remove the lamp the set uses (customer replaceable) and examine it to see if shattered inside.

Lamp door is either on side or rear of set, once door is removed you will find the lamp cartridge which is secured by two brass screws; with them backed out grasp the handle on the cartridge and pull lamp and cartridge out.

Do not touch the face of the lamp but look inside the glass--if it looks like a 1950s style flashbulb with bits of broken glass, you have found your problem.

before you rate this information let me know what you find and what questions you have; make a comment here and the site will email me.

I have an HLP4663W it will not start up. Red light flashes, you can hear it trying to start up, but never does anything. No picture no sound and then cuts off.

open it the first step then check the uper scan and lover scan boards they are located in the left serch for blown chips or short circuit. check all the fuses and all the power supply's voltages they are writen on the PCB good luck

Lamp light came on there is sound but no picture. do I just need to replace bulb and if so can it be done personaly or do i need a professional to install it?

I don't think its the lamp. I replaced my lamp a couple of months ago and then suddenly on Sunday I've got the exact same problem. Still looking for an answer.

When I turn off my Samsung DLP it makes a pop and a sound like ''Glass breaking'' about 1 to 2 seconds after the picture and sound has stopped.

Hi,it sounds like its the lamp,when it goes out lamp will pop and you'll hear glass inside of it.Make sure you get the original Philips lamp.Also check the color wheel here;s how to take it out: It might be that color wheel is broken and that's why you hear glass breaking because it might still spin broken.God bless you!

Sound but no picture after an explosive glass breaking sound

Some of those models have been known to have the lamp shatterd and still have sound. Check the lamp, its probably shattered.

Did you order an ORIGINAL REPLACEMENT LAMP? There's lots of guys out there claiming to sell original lamps but there really not the original. For Samsung TVs (The majority of them) use Philips branded lamps. Check and make sure you lamp is a Philips lamp. Check out FixYourDLP blog for more information as there's lots o interesting reading there
