Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

I have a Samsung HLM617WX XAA DLP TV purchase in 2004. I replaced the lamp (BP96-00224J) in 8/09. Other than this the TV has operated perfectly. This week the screen went blank and the three LEDs flashed on/off. If I turn the TV off and wait a few minutes, then I will get a picture for about ten minutes and then the screen goes blank again. Looking at the back of the set I can see that the Lamp is OFF. I assume that since the lamp does work for awhile, than it is not bad. It almost seems like either the ballast is bad or possibly the ballast fan is bad. Any ideas? I'm an analog integrated circuit designer so I feel comfortable doing some debugging. Appreciate any help. Walt

If the lamp is failing, the sensor on the ballast unit will shut it down. Check with a new lamp and ensure the cooling fans are clear and filters are clean.

Did you order an ORIGINAL REPLACEMENT LAMP? There's lots of guys out there claiming to sell original lamps but there really not the original. For Samsung TVs (The majority of them) use Philips branded lamps. Check and make sure you lamp is a Philips lamp. Check out FixYourDLP blog for more information as there's lots o interesting reading there

Did you reset the hours on the lamp with the menu options on your set? Sometimes, if you do not do that it can mess with the tv performance thinking that its over hours. It needs to be reset to 0 again...

SOURCE: Lamp Light still on after replacement

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.

I replaced the lamp on my Samsung HLS5086WX/XAA DLP set. How do I reset the timer on the lamp?


I have a Samsung DLP HLN617WX/XAA. After turning off by itself, the three indicator lights were blinking... signifying a defective lamp. I've re-seated the old lamp several times with no change. I bought a new lamp and reset the lamp hours through the "service menu" with no change. My television is still turning itself off and still blinking the same indicator lights. What should I look at, next?
