Question about Samsung Projection Televisions

1 Answer

I have a Samsung 61 inch DLP tv. Was very happy with it for the past 3 years. Lamp went out in Feb. Got a new one and replaced. A few weeks ago, it started making a screeching noise. Fans were ok, Troubleshot on the web and ordered a new Colorwheel. Changed out the Color wheel. Now LAMP won't turn on and get the 3 Lights on front of tv saying lamp is bad. I don't think Lamp is bad, think something is not letting Lamp Light off. I have tried the switch in the door, still no luck. Any suggestions? I have heard to make sure the color wheel cover is on tight. Can that really be an issue? I am at a loss. Think this is BS that a 3K tv can cost you 6-8 hundred every 3 years to have parts that cost a few hundred to be replaced. This may be my last Samsung if this is the case with all of them.

It is b.s. but it's not only samsung that have poor reliability. At least they have some customer service. Some new brands are a nightmare. I would suggest changing the ballast first, and if that doesn't do it, you're probably looking at a dmd board which is very expensive. Only other thing I can say is to try removing and reseating the lamp switch again. Also listen for the color wheel to start up a few seconds after you push power on. Color wheel is started by dmd board, lamp is driven by ballast.

White dots appearing on Samsung TV screen and multipling each day


It seems you might have an issue with the dmd board. Go to the menu, and if the dots still show on the menu, the issue definitely is with the dmd board but if they don't come up on the menu, the issue will be with the video board.

I am missing red color on my samsung 61" dlp tv


I bought this tv March of 2008, and Feb 2009 light engine went out, confirmed by TV repairman. Went through samsung directly.. WORST COMPANY EVER!!! No longer make this part, took 6 months to tell me that, after order went to 4 different repair companies. Finally, they offered $1770 to replace tv.. and weeks later, received a call that it was not approved so they offerred $1200. Still waiting for this check.. paid $2399 for this tv, still owe $1100!!! Samsung has worst customer service ever and do not stand behind their products. If you find replacement part for this tv, please post.. the part is expected to cost $850 and has to be professionally installed at $300.

Replaced lamp still not working


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.
