Samsung HLR4266 no Picture

Hi All,

My TV is about 2 years old. One day, the picture decided to not come on. I get the blinking "lamp" light I instantly thought the bulb was bad, but upon opening the back, I find the bulb is as bright as anything. So I thought maybe the ballast. But I am told the ballast turns the bulb on...so that can't be it.

I assume at this point it is the color wheel but can someone confirm. Anyway to tap it back into working. I do get a whirling noise occasionally at startup but still no picture

    I have this exact same problem. Press the power button and the lamp light blinks, the bulb turns on, the fan(s) turn on, I cannot confirm that the color wheel is spinning, the whole screen looks back lit, and I never get the startup "melody". Eventually the lamp light quit's blinking and it goes back to standby mode.

SOURCE: Tv Shuts off occasionally 1min upon power up shows red lamp light

Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.

For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.


Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:

12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filter cover is open.
34 = Lamp abnormality
36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 = Lamp Temperature High
39 = DMD Temperature High
41 = Short is detected
44 = DVI cable between FMT and Engine disconnected

all 3 lights blinking means lamp has a fault the service manual says replace the lamp. If you need the service training manual for that model let me know and I will post the link as the training manual has excellent trouble shooting breakdowns for that model DLP

SOURCE: Issues with replacing Ballast

The flash code indicates that the lamp cover is not installed correctly. There are safety switches built into the housing that require the cover be installed correctly for the set to work. If the cover is actually in place correctly, there may be a broken switch. Check for this and update this if you can not resolve the problem.

SOURCE: Issues with replacing Ballast

I have Samsung DLP HL-R4266W bought in Aug.2005. Now it has no picture, no sound. After replacing new lamp, the same problem remains. I was also told it could be the problem of ballast. Please tell me where you can buy the ballast? Where is the ballast located in DLP TV? Thank you.

I have a sony kdf 50e-2000 the green light goes on then it goes to thr red blinking lamp light. I have no sound or picture. If I replace the lamp light will I get sound and a picture again?


Hi,
Yes, if you have not replaced the lamp since you purchased this TV.
Lamps usually last about 6000 hours.
I've seen lamps last much longer than 6000Hrs, it all depends on the usage.
Remove the lamp from the TV and do a visual inspection, see if there's a crack on the glass or the bulb.
If the TV is few years old then the Lamp may be bad.

DO NOT BUY the lamp from ebay

Good luck to you.

Black screen with a Blinking lamp in the front


Hi..if your lamp is on but no picture, then your lamp is good. Your problem is the DMD board (digital mirror display board) is bad. This is very common with Samsung DLP.
