Question about Samsung HL-S5087W DLP TV

1 Answer

Samsung HLS5687W XAA will not stay on

I have a Samsung HL S5687W XAA DLP made in 2006. This set will not stay on. I push the power button on the TV. The Map light flashes brightly and the adjacent light flashes dimly. The projection bulb is on. The flashes last about 15 sec followed by a strange tone and then the light shuts off. What could be wrong?

I believe the bulb is good and the ballast is good.
I cleaned the fans and observed both fans turning.
I remove the light assembly door and manually hold down the blue switch.
Problem still persist...

SOURCE: Grinding Noise

sounds like the light engine there are alot of problems with the light engines and quite a few have had a grinding noise. The only other possibility would be the color wheel. But I would lean heavier toward the light engine being the fault.

I had the exact same problem with my TV turning off for no reason. If those two lights are blinking in the front it means your TV thinks the lamp door is open and shuts down. In my case i had to open the door and adjust the spring lever because it was not making good enough contact.

Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Samsung DLP HL-R5667W lamp won't fire. Changed

Was the replacement lamp the same part number as the original as there are different arc gaps for different lamps and the wrong arc gap will cause the lamp not to light. Since the ballast is powering up the lamp should light if the baalast is matched to the correct arc gap of the lamp being used.

Well for what you describe it sounds like the symptoms of a worn out lamp giving you the last kicks,basically the the lamps are design to go for 6,000 to 8,000 lamp hours if they're Phillips and a generic lamp could give you 3500 to 4500 lamp hours so with this in mind you could search for a new lamp at or you can go to Ebay also you can go to for more troubelshooting

From what I have read the most frequent solution to this problem is that the lamp door has become loose and that microswitch on it needs to be reset. Simply loosen the screw to the lamp door and open it a little bit and then close it again making sure that the door is closed tightly and retighten the screw.

Unfortunately, the second most common problem is that the main DMD digital board has developed a problem which is much more expensive to replace.

When we turn the TV on, a red light starts to blink but no image or sound is displayed. How can this be fixed?? And What is causing this? my TV model is HL-s5679w

The Blinking light is an error code, most likely you just need to replace the bulb which is fairly easy, there is an access panel on the back and you should be able to replace your self. A new bulb should include basic instructions here is a link price is $110

Samsung, DLP TV 50 inches Model # HL-T5075X/XAA

Samsung just told me they wouldn't fix my tv because it was produced in Nov. of '06 and the only ones they would fix were made in August of '06 or earlier. I am way too angry right now to call the service tech number they so very nicely provided.

TV has dark streak on one side of screen.

Your TV has a bad light tunnel. This part is inside the light engine. A qualified tech will have to replace it, but the part is available. Once it is replaced the TV will be as goog as new. Please take time to rate this solution and let me know if I can be of further assistance
