First, A common mistake made is when you insert the orange ribbon cable from the Color Wheel into the DMD bd. To correctly insert the Ribbon Cable you need to look at both sides. You will see a shiny silver side and a dull black/orange side. You must insert the shiny silver side AWAY from the Color Wheel or towards the rear of the set. Now for the Ballast. When you power up the tv,Do you hear a short Buzzing sound? If you do that means that the Ballast is trying to fire up the Lamp and is working. Next, do you hear the Color Wheel spin up? If you do not then you have installed the Color Wheel incorrectly and you need to repeat the installation while making sure that you hold the rubber gasket in perfect place or else it won,t work. Chances are the gasket is in the wrong position and is binding the Glass Wheel. The Ballast is on the right side of the engine and on top of the Lamp Housing. You will see two RED High Voltage wires coming out of one end. Don't worry, there is no stored voltage in the ballast so you won't get a shock providing you have unplugged the tv from the outlet. That is the first step before you change any parts any way. Listen for the correct start sequence. With the rear backing off and the Safety Interlock Switch is being held in the up position, turn on the set. First sound you hear is a clicking which is the power on relay engageing. Then you will hear the fans turn on and then the Color Wheel spin up. Once the Color Wheel spins up and comes to full RPM then the Exciter on the Ballast will Buzz for less than half a second and then the Lamp should light up. Now if you have installed the correct Lamp and correctly installed the Color Wheel and you either are holding up the Interlock Switch or have reinstalled the rear cover and tightened all of the screws you should have a working tv.

SOURCE: how can i check my lamp ballast in a rca scenium

are you sure when you replaced the lamp you seated it correctly, no really hapens all the time so dont feel bad. also another common error is the lanp door is not seated or closed and locked properly that is the most common problem that happens after a lamp is replaced, or the new lamp is bad never throw out your old one as somr dealers will give you what they call a core refund , they reuse the case around the old lamp. some can be worth as much as 50 to 60 bucks!!!

Does the lamp light if not and you are sure you have a good lamp check the ballast and make sure you have voltage coming from it.

TV goes off after 20 seconds Samsung HLS5086wx


First Take off the Lamp Door and replace it back the way it was secured with all of the screws. Doing this will reset the safety interlock switch which heats up and opens the circuit causing the set to shut down. After doing this and the set still shuts down check the lamp. Depending on the amount of hours on the lamp it may be a bad lamp. They will fail with out any obvious signs. If the set shut down and goes straight to the Stand By condition then you have a bad Power Supply. If you hear a whining or buzzing sound then you have a bad Color Wheel.

Just changed color wheel on my samsung dlp now it wont power on


First, the color wheel's 4 pin, copper connector which plugs into the DMD pcb should have the copper facing you as you look into the rear of the TV. Second, be sure you trip the lamp door switch in a closed position. Usually, you can just wrap the wht/blu wire around it, so the TV thinks the lamp door is closed. Try these and listen for the color wheel to spin up. If it does not, the lamp will NOT light. It's built that way. You may have a bad color wheel... which I have personally experienced in the past.

Chances are that the Interlock Safety Switch is not properly set. Remove the Lamp Door and then reinstall the door and tighten the screw. This will reset the Switch. If that does not fix the problem make sure that the Lamp is correctly seated. Beyond that you will need a trained samsung tech troubleshoot the set because it can be a bad Lamp Ballast,DMD bd,Main bd,Color Wheel. Also make sure you have the correct lamp. There is a Lamp Code sticker on the left side of the set. Match the code from the tv to the new lamp you purchased.

Does the TV appear to be cycling on and off, like its attempting to boot up? Or, does it just not come on at all? Don't miss the lamp door interlock switch. Many Samsung DLPs have tempermental door switches. Try re-installing the door or manually hold the switch in the closed postion and try to power it up. If the lamp comes on and stays lit, you've found your problem.

Hlp5063w 50'' projected samsung lamp won't come back on ?


It could be the lamp but don't overlook the lamp door interlock switch. If the lamp door is not aligned properly, you may have intermittent shutdown or no start conditions. You can temporarily cross the interlock switch to confirm that this is the cause.

Picture blinks out and in


If you haven't replaced the lamp recently, its the likely cause. If the lamp is known to be good, its possible that the ballast board (lamp driver/power supply) is defective. And, in some cases, the lamp door interlock switch may be the culprit. So make sure that the lamp door is properly aligned so the switch engages properly.
