Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV

1 Answer


My HD HL-S5687W DLP Television shuts off and from what I've read its expensive to fix. I just want to know what the main problem is so that the local repairman isn't fixing everything except the main problem. Pretty much don't want to be ripped off.

Thank you,

    televsion shut offs after a short period of time. Have had a repairman out 3 times -- billed over $1000 -- luckly under warrantee. Shortly after last visit, same problem -- he's coming back but not sure why he'll get it right this time. Thoughts?

I am having problems with my Samsung HL-S5687W 56 in. HDTV Television It is turning on ok then shuts off after a minute or so.Do you have any recommendations

i have seen before that model have some problems with the lamp door switch. check the back of the tv and make sure that the lamp door is secure otherwise it can be possibly a color wheel or even lamp failure. if you have never replaced the lamp then i would lean more towards that as the root of your problems.

Tv keeps shutting off with standby and lamp light blinking. what does this mean?

Good Day sir/maam, if your TV shuts off regularly, means that the power supply section is overloading, this may be due to faulty parts inside your TV, or either the AC mains in the community is to low or to high. If you want you can temporarily use a spare Auto voltage regulator with 500 watts, use it to levelize the AC main, if symptoms still persist, you may need to call for service. hope this helps. thanks

My samsung dlp tv hl-s5687w tv turns off on it on.

I had the exact same problem with my TV turning off for no reason. If those two lights are blinking in the front it means your TV thinks the lamp door is open and shuts down. In my case i had to open the door and adjust the spring lever because it was not making good enough contact.

Hope that helps.

try this and see if it makes a difference
open the lamp door look for the blue switch(bottom left i think)
take the loose wire(blue and white) wrap it over the switch to hold it back
and while your back there make sure you dont have a lot of dust blocking the vent on the back cover

you have the same problem I have. The problem is fixed by changing the new light bulb. The problem appears again after 1500 hours of use. You can keep buying new light bulbs or avoid it by not buying another Samsung TV.
