Question about Projection Televisions

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.

My Samsung 46in DLP turns on but within a few minutes it truns off and the timer, lamp and red stand by/ temp lights blink. Any Ideas?


The blinking lights usually indicate that the lamp is faulty or burnt out. In this case a new lamp would be required. The lamp in your projector set should last around 3-4 years of typical use. If your lamp is at the end of it's life you may have noticed a gradual reduction in brightness over the last few months. In this case if it's still in warranty contact Samsung to arrange for a replacement lamp.
Occasionally the lamp may not come on even when it is not burnt out. You could try turning the power off for 60 seconds on the back of the set. The other possibility is that the lamp is loose. Refer to your manual on replacing the lamp and follow the instructions removing the lamp and then put it back into place. If neither of these work you will need to get a new lamp.

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

Hi,
It seems lamp/ bulb popped again, check lamp inside tv.
If tv does not show red blinking light then it would be lamp that knocked off, replace lamp in tv to fix its problem, please buy Sony original lamp for good picture in tv.

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.

After much research, it became apparent that the most logical culprit after the lamp was the color wheel. It has been replaced and the set is working again.

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?
