Did you ever fix the problem with your DLP TV not turning on. I replaced the lamp and ballast but still have the three flashing LEDs. I checked the cover switch and the TV still will not turn on. Please let me know. Thanks
Well I checked the color wheel and it wasn't spinning when I push the power button. I checked and the color wheel is getting power.I removed the color wheel and when you spin it by hand it has a dry metal to metal sound, but it still spins freely. Do you think the color wheel is the problem?
YOU PROBABLY NEED A DMD BOARD. THE COST OF THE BOARD IS $900 . YOU CAN GET A LIGHT ENGINE FOR $700 THAT HAS A NEW LAMP, COLOR WHEEL, BALLAST AND DMD. WHAT A DEAL . THERE IS A $400 CORE ON IT SO YOU WILL HAVE TO SEND BACK YOUR NEW BALLAST AND LAMP TO GET THE CREDIT BACK. WHEN I GIVE A QUOTE ON THESE SETS FOR REPAIR MOST OF THE TIME IT EXCEEDS THE VALUE OF GETTING A NEWER BETTER SET. DON.

Douglas, the ballast is what the lamp plugs into, pretty sure it's plug and play to change.

You are going to ruin the optics using a Xenon lamp. The ballast in the TV talks back via UART to the CPU. By removing the ballast the TV cannot talk to it and run itself properly. Also using a xenon lamp will give terrible color reproduction as its not putting out nearly enough lumens in the right spectrum. It will also bombard the color wheel and DLP chip with UV light and ruin those as well.
Hi,do you hear any strange noises? If you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast.Here's the instructions to replace it :http://www.fixyourdlp.com/guides/samsung/bp47-00033a.php But if you don't hear any strange noises,tv is around 6000 hrs,2-4 yrs it could be time to replace the lamp.Have a bless one!
Had similar problem. Thought it was the lamp. Examined old lamp but it appeared to be good. Ordered a new one anyway. Changed the lamp but the TV screen would not come on. It would make the usual noise as it was going to come on normally but it would cycle 3 times & then turn off. The LED lights in the front panel would indicate a defective lamp. Then read about the ballast. Changed the ballast & still same problem. Tried starting the TV without the lamp installed & noticed that the color wheel did not spin. Removed old color wheel & discovered it was broken. This appears to be the cause of all of my problems. I wish I new earlier of the test-turn on the TV without the lamp being installed & check to see if the color wheel is spinning. Would have save money on the lamp & ballast.
HLP, HCN HL-S The Start-up Problem or/and 3 LEDs in the front blinking. Unplug the set, pull out the lamp module (not all the way - leave it on the track) and push it back in. 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.
