Thanks for the helpful info. I called the business where we purchased our TV from, and they came and picked up the light when they did some repair work for us. This is a small town, and they only have a site to drop off polluted things like this once a year. That was September 13th! This happened a long time before that date.

I don't know what location you live in, but if you are in the US, check your state's EPA webpage...they usually have contact numbers for questions like that (and if you call, they can likely recommend local agencies/businesses qualified to dispose of it for you).

How do I change the lamp.

1. Turn TV power off and allow the lamp to cool at least one hour before proceeding.
2. After the lamp has cooled, remove the plastic air exhaust grille/cover by removing two screws with a #2 (large) Phillips screwdriver. See figure 1.
3. With a large flat-blade screwdriver, loosen the three shiny screws securing the lamp cartridge until they disengage from the mating threads. These are captive screws and cannot be separated from the lamp cartridge.
4. Fully open up the bag supplied with the replacement lamp and set the opened bag aside.
5. Grasp the wire handle of the lamp cartridge and pull the old cartridge straight out towards you. See figures 2 and 3. Note the orientation of the cartridge.
CAUTION: Do not tilt or rotate the cartridge, as small glass fragments may fall out.
6. Without tilting or putting down the lamp cartridge, insert it into the opened bag. Close the bag while being careful that no glass particles fall out.
7. Do not touch the glass parts of the new lamp cartridge. Insert the new cartridge into the TV in the same orientation as the old cartridge. Push on the cartridge housing until it is fully seated.
8. With either your fingers or the screwdriver, gently tighten the three screws. If using a screwdriver, use only two fingers for final tightening. AVOID OVERTIGHTENING!
9. Replace the plastic grille/cover and retaining screws.
11. Contact your local authorities or the Electronic Industries Alliance at for lamp-disposal or recycling instructions. Do not dispose of the old lamp with common trash.
12. Reset the Lamp Reminder from the TV Setup menu as follows:
a. Press TV MENU to open the Setup menu.
b. Move the highlight to Lamp Reminder.
c. Press ENTER twice.

How old is the lamp? I've seen old projector lamps get a crusty build-up on the filament near the end of their life cycles. On one projector that was getting really dim, I turned the projector upside down to check the model number and the encrustation fell off the filament, restoring the lamp to almost-normal brightness. Removing the lamp housing to inspect the lamp and replacing it may do the same thing. Bear in mind that if this is happening, the lamp is about done, and it's safer to replace it than risk catastrophic failure. The lamp will age faster than normal if the vent slots are not kept clean (a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush works for this) or if the set is power-cycled frequently.

Two warnings: your owner's manual will tell you to shut down the set and wait an hour before removing the lamp. Check page 109 of the manual and FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS OR YOU MAY GET A BAD BURN. Also, NEVER touch the lamp itself with bare fingers unless you intend to dispose of it with no further use. When the lamp gets hot, skin oil will react with the special glass causing discoloration and structural weakening. That may cause it to explode! If you must handle the bulb, wear new disposable food handling gloves. The manual assumes that a lamp run to the end of life may break anyway, and treats the lamp housing as if it contains mercury-contaminated broken glass. (You may be able to save money by replacing the bare bulb in the housing, but wear gloves when handling the new bulb and be sure to polish the wire terminals if they are not shiny clean in the contact area. The old bulb is hazardous waste and must be disposed of in the same manner as fluorescent lamps.) If you change the bulb, be sure to reset the lamp hour record as described on page 110.

Another possibility is tarnished contacts on the bulb or lamp housing. Mild cases can be remedied by polishing with a clean pencil eraser - I prefer the soft white kind often found on mechanical pencils. Heavy tarnish may require the use of a Scotch-Brite abrasive pad (rougher stuff than you get on the back of a cleaning sponge).

If you have a smoker in the household, the optics may be contaminated with tar (use a soft, low-lint cloth dampened with lens cleaner - do not spray the cleaner directly into the set because it could get into the electronics). This is work inside the set - it must be unplugged for at least an hour before starting to ensure all parts are cool. Do not touch the electronics - they are vulnerable to static electricity damage, and capacitors in the power supply may hold a charge for a time after the set is unplugged. Do not disassemble the optics - getting everything refocused and aligned is probably a major job without the proper tools and knowledge of the system. You may want to consider hiring a professional with LCD rear projector TV experience.

In the worst case, there is a problem with the regulation of the lamp power. Usually a fault of this nature will be detected and the set will flash an error code on its indicator lights instead of running. It can be repaired, but it's a job for a professional technician unless you want to swap circuit boards until it works (may not be any cheaper than paying somebody who has the service manual and knows how to use it).

How hard is it to replace the bulb on an HLR6156WX/XAA

To replace bulb of your Samsung TV; proceedigns are given here:

[1]. Unplug the television and allow it to cool off for at least 30 minutes. The lamps in televisions get very hot and can cause injury if handled too soon after turning off the televisions
[2.] Remove the four screws from the cover of the access panel on the back of the television and pull off the cover.
[3]. Loosen the lamp by removing the security screw from the handle of the lamp. Though the lamp bulb is visible in the middle of the access panel, the handle is to the left of the panel
[4]. Grip the handle of the lamp and pull the lamp out of the access panel. Dispose of the old lamp in a waste receptacle
]5]. Slide the replacement lamp into the television, making sure the tip of the lamp is facing the right side of the unit
[6]. Replace the security screw for the handle of the lamp and reattach the access panel cover with the four screws. The television will not turn on if the access panel cover is not on the television

How do I install the samsung HLR4667WX/XAA lamp...are there instructions that come with that part or do i need a professional to install

The manual for the TV usually has the instructions. You can find many Samsung manuals on their website ( The bulb replacement is easy enough to do it yourself. You need a Phillips screw driver and a lint free cloth to handle the new lamp. Turn off and unplug the TV. Wait ~30 minutes after turning off the TV before starting.

Usually you need to remove one Phillips screw to take off the lamp cover. Then loosen two additional screws and pull the lamp housing out by the handle. If your new lamp came with the housing, just swap. Otherwise (some OEM lamps), you need to remove 6 more screws to exchange the lamps (these have nuts that are only hand tight). Make sure not to mix up the old and new lamps and store the old one in a safe place until you can dispose of it.

Then reverse the steps. If the cover is not properly secured the TV will not come on.

I hope this helps.

Can't see picture on my samsung tv...lamp, timer and standby light are blinking on the power button

You need to replace the lamp. Order the correct type and code number (from or the store where you bought the TV). Before starting the replacement, make sure the TV has been off for at least 30 minutes and unplug the set. Remove the phillips screw that holds the lamp cover and then the lamp cover itself. Remove the two screws that hold the lamp to the housing. Pull the old lamp out by the handle. Put the old lamp in a safe place until you can properly dispose of it.

Handle your new lamp carefully (wear gloves to avoid skin oils on the lamp). Put the new lamp in the housing and close up the TV by reversing the above steps (secure screws, replace lamp cover).

I hope this helps.
