    No it never comes back on it just keeps retrying. I have unplugged for entire evening and retried to start up and still nothing. From the sound of others on this site it appears it may be a bulb. Lg was not at all helpful.

    Same problem, replaced the bulb, still not starting up. I was able to turn it on after I first replaced the bulb, then went back to powering down, with the white lights scrolling, then the bulb light flashing a few seconds. Every 4-6 minutes it tries to turn itself back on, but is not able to. Power light is solid, then bulb light flashes for a few seconds...repeat.

Does the set eventually start? You could be at the end of the lamps lifespan most sets will have false starts when the lamp is nearly gone and will take alot of trials before they start.

Had this problem recently and you will see that there are two orange flashing lights  the lower one indicates that the lamp is going. Definitely a new lamp and be prepared for a shock if you buy from  Sagem as the lamp with holding box is £400.00. I bought just lamp from good dealer on ebay for £85.00. Set now is fine.

I have the WD 62627 model. the lamp light is on, when i power up the tv, it comes on for like 6 to 10 secs then it turns off. Does this mean I need a new Lamp?


I would say that it probably is a bad capacitor on the power supply board of the tv. What you want to look for is any round cylinders with the tops pushed up at all. The replacements are usually really cheap, it might also be the lamp, but usually when lamps go they go completely while a bad capacitor is known to cause intermittent problems that escalate into a tv only working for about 5-10 seconds.

Hi,
TV needs lamp replacement as existing lamp got weak or has been reached to end of its working life, please note that lamp is not dead or broken so that is why lamp lit is not lit at tv front.

Standby light keeps blinking. tv wont turn on


If the TV goes off completely, then is usually a faulty power board.

If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.

Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box
connected.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Samsung HLN5065W Lamp won't stay on.


Do you get any flashing lights?  Such as Lamp or Temp?  A common problem with these is the light not coming on.  Sounds like a temperature issue.  When you turn the TV on when it is cool, pull it forward and check the rear on the left to see if you can see the fan turning where the lamp is.
The light system is pretty straight forward:  Power Board -> Ballast -> Lamp.  It is controlled by the DLP Board, though.  Since it is powering up, it sounds like the Power Board and Ballast are okay.  The ballast is used to kick start the lamp on (similar to flourescent lights) but not during normal operation.

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!
