Problem turning On

Hi,

We have a Samsung HL-P5063W DLP TV. Lately it will not turn on the first time the remote is pressed, in fact it seems to take longer and longer to come on. Sometimes the timer and the lamp lights blink on and off for a while and then all three lights blink and the standby light comes back on. After pressing the On button on the remote and going through this process a number of times, it will finally come on. The picture looks good. the set is three years old.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Harry Have a samsung hln617w, supposedly not listed, lamp was burned out so I purchased replacement. Will not turn on. Can hear two efforts and then auto turn off. Have read where others have same problem and tv eventually turns on. New lamp, another problem, not cheap either as I did not have a running spare purchased economically. Could use some help or direction, dont want to purchase additional to see if new purchase was faulty

    I bought a 43" Samsung DLP 4 years ago and I"m having problems with the tv. Sometimes when I try to turn the tv on it will not come it cycles on and off and finally the lamp light comes on and the temp light comes and stays. Sometimes I keep trying and some times it comes on and sometimes it won't. Is it the problem with the lamp? Anybody has a solution?

The lamp, ballast or dmd board can cause the same problem. Most commonly on these DLPs it is the lamp, but we have to use the process of elimination as well sometimes. Even as a samsung warranty center sometimes the flow charts don't help. The first thing I would do as a consumer is to vacuum around the ventilation holes behind set, these can cuase poor circulation and startup/shutduwn problems. Then with those type of lights flashing start by bidding for or buying the most inexpensive lamp you can get. Make sure exact replacement. Do not touch the glass on lamp when replacing. Then try the ballast which also has a part number on it and has only two screws when you have lamp removed from set. If still no luck, assume it is the dmd board and try pricing that baby. Not cheap! Then comes the decision. New set or repair this. This is what you can expect unfortunately. But I have the same set at home. Go figure.

I have Samsung DLP TV 50 inch HL-P5063W


First thing to look at is the color wheel this model uses--usually it will make a high pitched fan like sound but can make a grinding sound also.

If it slows down from the 12,000 or so RPM speed it will cause color issues.

HAVE GRINDING OR HIGH PITCHED SOUND?

I just replaced the lamp on my samsung HL-P5063W (DLP TV)...now the TV will not turn on (no picture...but I do get sound)...when I plug it in, it automatically starts to power on...then it starts making...


Sounds like a bad color wheel. Generally when the color wheel goes bad, when you try and turn the TV on the lamp will ignite for a couple seconds and then turn off. It also makes a rather high pitch squealing noise.

www.Partstore.com should carry a replacement color wheel for your TV
