Question about Samsung HLN5065W 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
This is a DLP projection that has a ballast and color wheel along with a lamp. The three flashing lights on the front are a diagnostic code. The exact meaning is listed in the owner's manual under troubleshooting. I don't have the manual for your model with me at the moment, so I can't look it up. Since the unit works OK for a while, it suggests that a component is failing under heat stress. This is often the ballast. The ballast is the part that provides the power for the lamp similar to the ballast in a flourescent light. Check the manual for the code and post it here. Also, because your model uses 2 different ballast/lamp combinations, you will need to get the lamp number off of the lamp. Please post that here too.
In the meantime, check the rear area for any obstruction in the air flow. There should be a fan in the rear that needs to be clear of debris and can turn freely. With the set unplugged, try turning hte fan by hand. It should turn easily and continue on its own slowing down to a stop. If it stops suddenly, the fan may be defective and not moving enough air to keep the lamp cool.
Keep us posted.
