Question about Samsung HLP5685W 56" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
TV just started cutting off all by itself. There are no indicators on the LED display either when this happens. Initially the tv would restart itelf but shut off again a short time later. If I unplug and replug in the tv it turns on automatically but then shuts off a short time later. I had similar issues about 6 months ago so I purchased a new lamp assembly. Even after putting in a brand new lamp, the on/off issue was still present although not as often. Eventually the tv resumed normal operation with the new lamp installed. Could I possibly need another new lamp already?
Hello, Hopefully We can help you determine if your lamp has failed. The Most obvious way to determine if you need a lamp is to do a Visual Check of your Lamp. Most of the time the Lamp will have blown and the filament burned. It will also usually be fogged up badly. Sometimes though the lamp will fail and look fine. Hence the blink code test. Todays Televisions Incorporate Blink Codes to be Used by both the Customers and Sevice Technicians. These Codes vary from Brand to Brand. We have compiled a list of these Blink codes in hopes that it will help you determine if Indeed you need a lamp. We say Blink Codes because when there is a failure within most televisions the Front LED Lights will Blink in some form of pattern. It maybe just your lamp light or it could be All of your lights. http://www.alltvlamps.com/samsungtest.htm
