The best place for quality lamps and good prices is . They have options to also allow you to just purchash the lamp, not the entire module. This could save you 30 percent. I would not go this route unless you are good with tools and can think things through.

Either way I have a tip at which explains the process and will help you with the repair.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Samsung bn64-00464A 42" plasma screen TV picture went out but the sound still works. Is there a way to do a hard reset or other fix that would be great.

sounds like your bulb is shot-remove back panel to find-take out and take to tv shop for replacement-use gloves on new bulb when replacing as you should with any bulb-hand oil diminishes life of bulbs.

My samsung turns on and off randomly

Same issue on my 55 inch Samsung DLP tv. Browsed youtubeand found 3 suggestions...tried all 3 together, don't know which one (s) worked: 1. After UNPLUGGING power cord and removing lower back panel and carefully removing bulb(1 month-old bulb -don't touch glass) thoroughly and carefully (using only plastic/rubber non-metallic vacuum attachments) vacuumed fans and all cavities- also used long, narrow feather duster for narrow spaces and fanblades. There's a hidden fan that I could only get to by sliding out a circuit board on the right side...don't touch metal parts and may have to disconnect a wired plug or 2. Be sure you know how to pinch connectors to pull them off and be sure you are capable of reconnecting them. 2. Inspected little blue switch that moves down when bulb entry door is installed. Dusted and vacuumed it and made sure it worked correctly when reinstalling the bulb door later. 3. Reinstalled bulb carefully, making sure the screw was installed tightly. One youtube guy said sometimes removing and reinstalling the bulb is all you need to do if the tv turns off by itself. Set works fine now, but can't say which things helped, but after 8 years, there was a lot of dust that could have interfered with the cooling, so vacuuming was a great idea.

Purchased a new bulb for our Samsung HL-T4675SX DLP TV in October. Less than 3 weeks after the bulb was installed, the TV would not turn on and the three indicator lights on the front of the TV came on,...

ballast failures are not that common in general. i would suspect the color wheel before the ballast. do you hear a whirring noise when the tv is trying to turn on. sometimes the color wheel will not spin correctly and the tv will not start as a result.

I have a samsung rear projection tv manufactured 2/2003. model #PCL 5415R. PROBLEM: convergence Need part number of convergence card and where to purchase it.

Please save your money and get this unit repaired, just because the set displays a "Convergence"SYMPTOM does NOT mean that changing that board will fix the unit, 9/10 it will NOT. I see this time and time again in the shop whereby people think they can fix their TV whatever, and mistake the SYMPTOM, for the cause and try to fix, usually unsuccessfully at that. The CAUSE must be repaired as well as the symptom, simply replacing a board will seldom "Repair" anything as the original fault that caused the symptom still has NOT been fixed. Please get a "Quote" they are free and at least then you will know what is the problem, even if you decide NOT to repair you have that information.Also one MUST have a Service Manual to be able to order the parts as without this number you simply cannot get parts.. it is that simple.

My Samsung HLP4663W 46 in was making a buzzing noise for several months. I know it could have been either the fan(s) or the color wheel, but I never opened it up to determine which it was. Now the TV quit...

Great reasoning work! In fact, the lamp will not light if the color wheel does not spin-up. Fans will not stop the process of lamp ignition. Instead, a fan will be detected and a message will appear on the screen telling which fan has stopped. You need to have the color wheel replaced.

Samsung model pcl 5415r tv looks like its in 3d

If this set is new, a problem like this would be covered by warranty. If it is no longer under warranty, locate the convergence ICs which will be large black ICs attacked to a heatsink. Try resoldering the pins on these ICs first. If that does not resolve the problem, replace the ICs. These should be marked STKxxx.

Keep me posted,

Samsung DLP Tv

it's about 3000 to 5000 hrs. on the bulb this translates to about 3 to 5 yrs. of normal use. it can, however, be greatly reduced by the number of on/off conditions. lamps need to cool down that is why the fans run longer after shut down.
obviously if the TV doesn't turn on that can be lamp. weak or dim picture is another sign.
