Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV

1 Answer

Ballast How can you definitively tell if the ballast that powers the lamp is bad? I replaced my lamp, then needed to replace the color wheel (which was shattered internally), and now there is a clicking sound, it cycles three times and then just shuts off. Is that indicitive of a bad ballast?

    Actually my issue is with green spots, picture freezes and must turn off/on several times to get a good picture. I replaced the lamp and it worked fine for a month and now same symptoms

    I have a Samsung DLP HL-R5067W. After a power outage, I usually have to disconnect the power cord from the TV to get it to work. This last power outage, I tried disconnecting the cord, checked the lamp assy (seems fine with filament intact) and cleaned out the rear vent. When I plug the TV back in, the lamp flashes for approx. 15-30 sec and shuts off with the three red indicator lights staying on (not flashing). Is this the ballast, and if so, what is the part number and location in the TV?

Why does my samsung tv cut off by itself after 1-2 min and flash a red lamp button?


A little explanation first- this model (as do most Samsung DLP sets) will try 3 times to get the lamp lit before the microprocessor will give up and then the 3 lites on the front will blink indicating a LAMP failure. This process takes about 1 to 2 minutes. In order of probabilty, the failures are:
1) A faulty lamp and/or ballast. REPLACE LAMP AND/OR BALLAST
However, a faulty lamp and/or ballast are not the only things that will give this blink code-
2) If the color wheel has a bad bearing and turns too slow or not at all, the microprocessor WILL NOT let the lamp light, and then give a LAMP blink code. A bad color wheel will normally have some sort of abnormal sound- a low growl or high pitched whine is common. REPLACE COLOR WHEEL
3) ALSO, if the microprocessor (on the DMD board) in its color wheel rotation detection or processing fails, once again the lamp is prevented from coming on and you get a LAMP blink code. REPLACE DMD BOARD
IF THE SET EVER COMES ON WITH A PICTURE for even a fraction of a second or though it takes many tries, the lamp and ballast are good. The problem must be either the color wheel or DMD board.

No Picture But Sound


I have a HNL5065W samsung that i just repair if it was the lamp you would not get sound,When Lamp goes out set will not come on only Flashing front lights, how long does yours play before cutting OFF? There is a couple of capacitors that will go bad on power board,CK to see if any of the capacitors are puffed up on top if so thats your problem.,But remember Ballast starts up LAMP CK the big capacitor on ballast board and small ones ,also Keep in mind it could be Ballast,if set keeps playing with sound and no picture another thing make sure nothing has come unpluged on DMD board, this board also will keep lamp from firing.OK heres another thing IF COLOR WHEEL is not spinning correctly lamp will not fire up, if it spins to slow or too fast most samsungs start out with Bad Color Wheel.I Buy on E-Bay got My lamp for 85.00 Ballast board 55.00 Ballast board at other companys 117.00 plus shipping! Color Wheel was 65.00.

Ballast or color wheel next?


The color wheel will normally spin-up even for a brief moment when the set is powered up. I have not seen a color wheel go out with a lamp. I have seen a ballast go bad with a lamp. I would replace the ballast first. You did not state wheather the color wheel was noisy or not. On the Samsung DLP, the color wheel is normally very noisy before it is gone. I hope this will help you.

Hlp5063w 50'' DLP samsung Experiancing The Word LAMP green letters flashing for 20 second followed by clicking noise then shut off.. then repeats that same process twice then TIMER / STANDBY/TEMP/LAMP...


Sounds like you've already gotten into the repairs. The three major things that fail on DLP are the bulb, the ballast and the color wheel. If your bulb is new and you aren't getting anywhere, replace the ballast, if that is still a no go, then move on to the color wheel. If replacing those three doesn't fix the problem, you will have to whip out the multimeter and start looking for problems on the PSB. You can get a ballast on ebay for about $100. Start there. The color wheel should be very freely moving. If something is grinding and hindering the movement at all, you need to replace it. That grinding may not seem like much but it is likely enough to keep the wheel from spinning at proper speeds. The sensor then kicks in and tells the brain that there is a problem and the brain keeps the ballast from firing the lamp.
Good luck.

Tdoes not lighthe dlp lamp


Before you do anything check if the lamp looks ok visually.
Soon after putting power ,you should hear the color wheel spinning at high speed then the ballast should start the lamp.If the lamp still does not light then check the 300 volts dc at the ballast.If is missing check power supply.if color wheel is spinning and 300 volts at the ballast is ok but the lamp does not light up then the problem may easily be the lamp.
Note - If the problem is other than the ballast or the lamp then the repair would be very expensive.check the above first and if necessery contact me again.

Samsung LA40R71BD will not turn on stanby button keeps flashing and making a clicking sound.


This could be lamp or ballast. First I would check the lamp. It could be bad (causing the clicking) or it may just need to be reseated with the ballast. If the lamp is not bad make sure it is connected to the ballast and pushed all the way in. If you still hear the clicking (the clicking may be the ballast trying to light the lamp. when turning on your tv, look to see if the ballast is flickering causing the clicking) and your lamp is good and seated correctly, then you ballast is going bad and it needs to be replaced. Last but not least. If that is not the problem then the clicking is a broken color wheel. A broken color wheel will sound like a clicking or a high squeal when going bad.

Lamp will not come on after replacement


Sounds like a ballast problem. Did you change the ballast or just the lamps? You may want to check your ballast, also the air filter, as this will stop your set from powering on.

Power issues (Tv not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.
