It sounds like it's trying to fire up the lamp, unsuccessfully. Try removing the lamp and putting it back in. Sometimes this helps, at least temporarily. My initial suspicion is a lamp issue.

Let me know if this fixes the problem and if not, then we can explore further solutions.

Thank you for using Fixya and Good Luck

    a projection tv uses a lamp for the picture, so you do have a lamp

    Lamps look like this



    Let me know if you need further help

    yes good, you should try to remove them and then put them back in and see if anything looks dirty or burnt. If putting them back in doesn't fix the problem then you will probably need to replace one or more of them

Well..could be that your control board is on overload. Turn it off for around 30 minutes, and then try it again.

Picture and sound turn on and off


I believe that model has a logic board in it and that is what it sounds like to me. That is just off top of my head, but I believe if you will notice the standby light it will be blinking so many blinks and stop and then blink again. If so this is a code that you can look up on the Samsung web site and plug in your model and it should tell you what just say ~ 4 blinks means. I worked on so many and it has been a while but I believe the last one I had was a Samsung and I put a logic board in it. If I can be of any further assistance please let me know.

My samsung dlp turns on, then after 10-15 sec turns back off


It could be the temp sensor going bad. This sensor sits on top of the metal housing which the bulb assembly slides into. The bulb assembly will have a hole on top and this is where the sensor is above. There is a small blue and white wire that plugs into it. If you pull the wire out and put a paper clip or wire in the coupling you will basically bypass the sensor connecting the blue and white wire. If your tv turns on then that is your problem. Its cheap too. Here were my symptoms..1] Turn tv on 2] Bulb would light up..(which eliminates the ballast) regular picture would show up (which eliminates the bulb and color wheel) 3] 30 seconds later tv would shut down with 3 flashing lights. After bypass the tv turned on as always and hasnt shut down yet. Always un plug tv first. Get the replacement part to avoid overheating and possible fire

PICTURE STOPS & DETERIORATES THEN GOES BLACK. WHEN I TURN SET OFF I GET A WHINING SOUND (FAN?) FOR 20 SEC. & THEN SET TURNS OFF


The sound comes from the color wheel and not a fan,common to samsung dlp tv's which can be the cause of the shut down.

My TV turns off. As soon as I turn it back on it


try the lamp door switch in the back of the TV, door is held on by 1 screw, after door is open there is a blue switch by the slide that protects the lamp. push the switch down and up a couple of times then put cover back on and see if tv stays on. this was my problem with this exact tv.

Tv shuts down


does the main board have the flyback on it? if so the yokes or CRTs can be intermittently shorting which in turn triggers your shut-down.
turning it off or unplugging just resets the shut down circuit.
