Question about Samsung HL-S5086W 50" HDTV
Hello, I have a model HL-S5086W - 50" Samsung DLP TV. While replacing the lamp bulb, I pulled the old bulb out by the handle, and the corner of the lamp housing caught the blue and white (or light tan?) wires running from the back panel safety switch (the blue lever) up to the upper-left corner of the lamp housing. The ends of the wires pulled free from the control board. They are still attached to the blue lever switch. I think I have it narrowed down to two options. There is a vertical row of connectors just to the upper left of where the lamp housing goes. The top connector has six holes in it. The middle two holes contain the wires from a small rear fan. The top two and bottom two holes are empty, & I'm convinced the back panel safety switch wires must go to one of those pairs. Can someone PLEASE tell me (or better yet, send me a simple diagram) where the wires are supposed to plug into (and in what order - i.e. blue wire above or below the white wire)? I know they go just above the upper left corner of the lamp ballast, but I can't tell where. Sorry this got so wordy; I wanted to include as much detail as possible. Thanks in advance for your help. Drew
Remove the rear cover and check the lamp cover switch. Earlier versions used a black plastic switch holder that may break due to improper assembly. The part number for the holder is BP61-01240A. Newer versions use a metal tab attached to the engine. In this case, improper assembly may cause the lamp cover switch to be extended past its range, either breaking the switch or causing it to have an open contact. Replace the switch with BP91-01231A.
Note that in these models, when reinstalling the rear cover, it is best to remove the lamp cover first, install the rear cover, then install the lamp cover. This will make sure that the lamp switch is properly engaged.

Listen closely. The tv should make a high pitch whine as it turns on. If it does wait and see if it tries this a few times. If yes then check the bulb, I have seen cases where the lamp shoves the power connector back into the set. If the tv starts with a grown or heavy vibration noise, then your color wheel may have broken and needs replaced.

Was the replacement lamp the same part number as the original as there are different arc gaps for different lamps and the wrong arc gap will cause the lamp not to light. Since the ballast is powering up the lamp should light if the baalast is matched to the correct arc gap of the lamp being used.
