Set won't light up - hls5686w

I was watching the tv one night and it suddenly shut off. I tried to turn it back on and it keep going though cycles until finally it stopped, the all three lights where flashing. I went to my owners manual and saw that it could be the bulb went out.
I orders a bulb from a company on ebay and recieved it this Friday. I removed the old one and replaced it with thenew one i recieved. Needless to say, NO LUCK. I made sure that the case was securely placed into the space provided assuring that both pegs where sticking out of the holes next to the screw. I made sure that the access door was securely placed , as i read that the set would not turn on if it sensors picked up and open door. I then plugged it back in and turned the set on, but it still will not light up the bulb. I goes through two or three cycles and then stops, with all three lighsts flashing.

Questions are:
Did i get a bad buld from this company?
Is there something else that could be wrong with the set?
Should i call Samsung and have them come out to see the set?

Your new bulb is most likely ok. maybe bad thermo protector near lamp. or bad ballast or worst case light engine.Call a local tv shop to come out and look at it,

prices as low as 160 for thermo to worst case light engine 600

Make sure you closed the cover that gos on lamp there is a switch that will pervent tv from coming on if you dont have cover on.

Thanks doctor video

Power supply trouble. The TV keeps trying to start then operates for 2 seconds and shuts down. The cycle keeps repeating until eventually the TV will not start at all.

I shut the tv off last night and now it won't turn


If total dead (no lights on blinking etc) follow power cord into the set and find and check the main fuse--in this set it usually is a glass 5 amp fuse.

Power button Flashes


For the first one, please list the model number and count the blinks. Also, can you please post each problem separately. It will get too confusing trying to address 3 sets with different but similar problems.
Thanks,

RCA CTC203 No Colour in the Video IN or Svideo


It is possible that while programming the remote you got into the menu on your TV and adjusted the color control. Go back into the menu and find the controls for color, contrast, tint and etc. If the color bar is all the way to the left, then adjust it to go to the right until you get enough color. This is just one possible solution. Hope this corrects the problem.
