Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV
My TV will not come back on.
I have replaced the DLP Lamp and also the lamp ballast.
When I turn the unit on it will make a sound like R2D2 in STars Wars and then it sound like it is trying to turn on put I get no picture or sound at all.
When I look at the back of the unit I can see two little green lights that turn on. Should there be more?
What should I do next?
Probably a bad or broken color wheel.Very common with Samsung DLP.If the wheel doesn't start to turn,the lamp ballast won't fire the lamp.

I was having flickering, and then blackout, overeat and lamp led's blinking. I figured it was all dusty inside. I pulled the back cover, removed the screws holding the light housing in. (3) brass screws are visible through smaller door opening, top left screw holds light box, screws along bottom holds ballast board in, took top left screw out, pulled light box out, had plug on bottom side, very nice. Then I lifted the board out, it has (2) plugs to it, 1 big two wire plug outside edge of board, I removed this plug to pull out the ballast board, removed visable dust, then replaced board, visually no burned connections or resistors, tighhtened screws to secure board, reversed all disssembly actions in order above, dusting as I went. All good so far put the cover back on so the blue switch behind it is in the down pos. helpful info for testing, power on w/small door removed, (trip switch to down position gently) will allow you to test before final closing !!!!DANGEROUS!!!! but useful for the trouble shooting I could have avoided later see why. Do at your own risk, I was fine but I only touched what i knew wasnt live, screws and plastic cover to lightbulb box. I did final closing and tried it out. NOTHING, Oh my what have I done, I took a 20 min. break and gathered my thoughts. I went back in, I got more light on the area I was in, the other smaller plug w/wires I didn't detail earlier now comes into play, it's a 5 wire mini white clip plug 4-white, 1 blue at end of clip, it was still plugged in on the ballast end but on the opposite end of the wire, unplugged. So small I could'nt find recepticle for it, looked in the area of where it was laying (it ran up to the top of a silver cover w/ holes allover) Almost all the way to the right on top of the holed panel was a plug. I took apart the fan assembly (after that there are three spring loaded screws, holding cooling fins to the panel, very light tension, nothing pops out, but dont lose the springs when you pull the screws out) to remove that panel because the wire group wasn't long and had a clear plastic sleeve over it and I knew it went somwhere, tilted the holed panel toward me and saw the plug (very sneaky), plugged it in (it only goes one way) and reassembled the fan assembly which may not have needed to be disassembled, but made it easier I'm sure. I didn't take the light or ballast out this time, so it was easier. Now the trick from earlier, I plugged it in and gently engaged the small blue switch to the down position. Asked assistant to power on while I held the switch down to check airflow, light coming on, ballast firing, all good ,everything worked and great. Powered down at the main switch, waited about 1 1/2 minutes until fan stopped, reinstalled cover, powered back up, good as new. maybe that plug became somehow dislodged on yours, unknowingly as mine did because of the similar symptoms no picture, no sound and repeated attempts to fire. I was extremely careful it still was not enough. It fixed it though. Scoundrel to savior all in the same day, nice. Take a look to see if that wire was removed some how and try to plug it back in. If not, sorry, I was so happy I wanted to help someone else save some money if possible. I repeat, I do not condone the removal of the cover as pertaining to warranty concerns or safety. I did, but I may have been the lucky or crazy one. It worked for me and I would do it again and better next time.
