Mine is doing the same thing but i was able to pinpoint it to a capacitor arching and smoking. haven't replaced it yet so i'm not sure if it's just a bad capacitor or a more involved issue.

Samsung DLP TV HL50A650 switches on and off


more than likely, the power level is too high for the TV. Make sure the votage switch on the back of the set matches what you are plugging into. For Example, in the US the set needs to be set to 110v, Europe is 220v. If you're getting a burning smell, it might be too late. That tells me that the amount of volts to the TV is greater than what the set is expecting.

Turning off by itself


This TV probably needs the convergence amp IC's replaced. When they go bad the TV will not turn on.Call a good TV Tech and tell him you want the IC's upgraded to STK 392-150 instead of the original STK 392-120 and check all resistors in the circuit for proper value. They could be burned or open.

check of fluid leak from the tubes, check to see where the burning smell is comming from. could be anode, hv wire, splitter, surge caps in h-circuit, but it sounds like a high voltage transformer.

No picture or sound after replacing lamp


Possible bad color wheel...

Pull the lamp out & look inside where the lamp sends the light-

does the color wheel look defective? If so,replace it.

Or, the lamp ballast may be bad.After that,usually replace

complete engine.
