Question about Samsung HLR5667W 56" Rear Projection HDTV
When i plug the power cord in, the tv automatically turns on. i dont have to press power or anything, it just turns on, makes the normal beeping noise that its turning on, the lamp light flashes a couple times, the picture comes on, works for about 3 seconds, then the screen freezes, stays frozen for a couple more seconds and then the tv shuts off, restarts and does the whole sequence over again. what could be causing this? i dont think its the bulb as the picture is very clear and bright when its on, but the tv will not stay on. the other thing that i noticed it is doing is throughout the whole process, anytime i press any button on the remote other than menu, the (TIMER) light on the power button lights up. any insight into this would be greatly appricated. thanks
It is normal for timer lite to blink when a remote command is sent. However, the problem you are having can be caused by several different things. I have had the same problem with my samsung dlp and have done the factory service for several years. First, you need to vacuum out all vent holes on the rear of the set. Then, remove the lamp cover, unscrew the screw holding the lamp in place and remove lamp. Do not touch glass. Look to see if filament is shattered. If not, firmly reinstall lamp and secure. Then reinstall lamp door making sure you engage door switch. Try set and see if this helps unless lamp was shattered. If not, replace lamp. Weather or not it is bad, you will need one sooner or later. Also, listen for a zing noise a few seconds after power is engaged. This is the color wheel which is another possible cause for this symptom. Truth is, almost any part in the set can cause this, but I gave you the most common things you can do by yourself to test this unit. Good luck, Russmann.
