Question about Samsung HL-S4266W 42" HDTV

1 Answer

The problem I am having is it takes a long time for the set to turn on. I replaces the lamp due to many hours but it did not help. It can take as long as 2 hours for the picture to appear. The lamp is on, lamp light flashes then it times out and the set turns off. I have to turn on many times before it will turn on. Also, how do I reset the lamp timer. Jim

    If it was the fan, it would do it when the set is working, also. Once the set turns on it work fine all day till I turn it off. The problem is when I turn it on, sometimes it starts in 15 seconds, others times up to 2 hours.

Panasonic TV slow to turn on, works fine after it turns on.


If you have to try to turn it on several times it is power supply related.

If dirty inside on fans etc it would cause set to shut down(the set monitors the fans for speed)>

I would suggest (take it outside) using a air compressor and cleaning the entire set out.

Lamps do fail---average life is 2000 hours for a original lamp and much less for a generic one.

If picture comes up try to watch the light from the lamp---if dim at first and then slowly comes up---it could be the lamp or the ballast the set uses to power the lamp.

My Coralife aquarium lamp does not turn on once it is turned off.... until the next day. Other times it seems fine.


The timer doesn't know what time it is until you set current time.
The yellow outlets are controlled for 12 hours, and you can determine when those hours occur when setting current time.

If you want timer to control one lamp with both day and night schedules, you have to adjust current time setting so lamp schedule falls within a 12 hour period. If that schedule doesn't fit, then buy a second timer.

My nec vt48 projector gets hot and turns off. It gives off 3 beeps a few seconds after


This problem and the error beep codes indicate a lamp that needs to be replaced. The correct part number for the lamp is VT85LP. Basically the lamps are rated with a life expectancy of 2000 hours. At the 2001 lamp hour (3001 in eco-mode) the LCD projector will power on, but not display an image, due to the indicator requesting the lamp be replaced and the lamp hours reset (hold the help button on the remote for 10 seconds when powering it on).

Lamp will not ignite


Two possible causes. First. The Color Wheel is going bad. Second. The Digital bd is going bad. Color Wheel part# is BP96-96-00674a and the Digital bd is a BP94-02065a.

New bulb installed and it takes 10 plus minutes to start


Exchange the lamp under warranty...
You've tried almost everything else.
It's not that uncommon to experience "infancy failure" with a brand new lamp.

If the problem persists with the replacements replacement then I would suspect the Lamp power supply (Ballast) is failing.

Sony KDF-46E2000 - Screen Goes Blank


You definitely have a bad lamp. Sony rates the lamp life at between 4000 and 8000 hours. There are 3 things that effect the lamp life, listed in order of importance:
1) number of times the lamp is turned on and off. Every time the lamp is first fired, it takes life off the lamp. Customers I see that turn the TV on in the morning, leave it on all day and then turn it off on the evening can get up to 12000 lamp hours
2) ventilation. Be sure you have at least 6 inches of open space all the way around the set and that the vents are clear of dust and debris.
3) power. If the power is interrupted when the set is on, there cannot be a proper cool down cycle. The fans will run after you turn the set off to properly cool it down, if the power is lost this cannot happen. If your power is unreliable, buy a small UPS to let the set finish a cool down cycle

Occasionally a lamp will faill before the average lamp time due to being defective. from your purchase date it sounds like you got about average lamp time. Be sure to purchase AN ORIGINAL SONY LAMP as a replacement, becuase the aftermarket lamps are bad news, Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

The lamps in these normally last about 3000 hours (if your really lucky). The bulb will start to loose it brightness as a matter of due course at about the halfway mark. It maybe that you are running the unit in the non economy mode that they are fading faster then normal.
The sets have a reputation for not being good with lamps though.

Have a look at the lamp though, make sure it has been off for at least an hour to let it properly cool and check for dust that has settled on it. Also if you wipe the lamp, make sure it is with a dry cloth, or allow plenty of time for any moisture to completly dry before turning it on if you use a damp cloth.

Scanner light stays on


I have the same problem. I chatted with HP customer care for an hour but it can't be fixed. The only thing you can do now is set the power saver mode to 2 hours, so bulb will turn off in 2 hours. Only way to minimum power consume.

Samsung HLN5065W problem


Power issues (Tv True True (``````````` (``````````` 0 95250 95250 clip_image002.gif 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 True True (``````````` (``````````` 0 95250 95250 clip_image002.gif 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.
