Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

The lamp on my Samsung HLP5085 burned out last night with a loud pop. I followed online instructions to remove it and orderd a new lamp. Then, I noticed that a small 1"x1" piece of glass between the lamp and color wheel is cracked. Can I buy a new piece? If I buy a new wheel does this little piece of glass come with that? Thanks

It's doubtful that buying a new color wheel will solve that cracked glass problem. However, if you are going to buy a new color wheel you may as well purchase a new television as they are extremely expensive and most new units do not use them. I suspect the piece of glass may be protecting the lamp from anything on the inside of the TV or preventing anything from getting to the color wheel so it may work out just fine the way it is. I would suggest reporting back after you have replaced the bulb. In other words, don't order anything else just yet.

Check the lamp.
Pull it out and look at it.
More than likely the lamp has shattered inside the set and needs replaced.

We heard a pop last night the screen went black but we can still hear and the tv turns off and on


Hi,
Most likely the loud pop that you heard was the lamp filament shattering and you can verify that by physically inspecting it,the UHP lamps have a life expectancy of 6000 to 8000 lamp hours when they are Phillips and from 3500 to 4500 lamp hours if it is an Osram,and you can find this items on discount-merchant.com or on Ebay

My Hitachi 70" LCD will not turn on


Take the door back off and look for a safety tab somewhere on the door that will activate a small safety switch, the tab will stick out. Maybe you broke the tab off or just didnt get the door on correctly. Try that and let me know.

Loud pop and picture went out.I have sound but no picture.


I had this happen a few months ago. More than likely the color wheel died. I opened up the back of my Samsung DLP expecting to find a blown lamp, but came to find out that only the color wheel was in need of replacement.

Green light flashing and then shuts down


Hi Gary

Have you resetted the lamp timer ? It must be done when a new lamp is inserted into the unit.

You can reset the lamp timer by holding the up arrow key on the Projector in until a online message appears. Then just follow the on-screen instructions.

If the problem persists , you will have to replace the Ballast wich is the lamp's power supply.

Samsung dlp


HLS4266W 43" dlp. In less than 1 yr whining grew worse, but did know what it was. Year passed with warranty and lamp went out. Replaced lamp. Worked for 3.5 hrs. Turned on next day and did not work. Got another lamp, but did not work. Figured out might be color wheel. Replaced it too. TV started up. Watched that night. Turned on next day, heard loud pop. Lamp never came on. Withdrew and reinstalled lamp a couple times to see if that worked. Did not. Currently, with new lamp and color wheel installed, lamp light blinks, but no lamp comes on. What now?
