Question about Samsung HCM422W 42" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

How do I know it is the lamp, when the TV wont turn on??

MY 42 in Samsung DLP turned itself off after a couple of hours of playing a CD through the dvd player (blue screen with tracks on screen.). Now it wont turn on. I fear it overheated, adn the lamp might have blown. When I try the power it just shows, then flashes red. But otherwise the light is not blinking or on. I tried unplugging it, moving it to a cooler spot, waiting hours adn days, and it wont turn on. I presume it is some "safe" mode (i hope), or the lamp is burnt. How can I tell? There is no apparent easy way to access the bulb on this set. Im at a loss. It is under warranty, but I dont really have the opportunity to get a technician over to deal with it.
ANYONE have any suggestions? Thanks.

If the set is still under warranty Samsung will send you the lamp,
look their number up in your owners manual which will also tell you where the access panel is for the lamp, each model is a little different but the owners manual will explain how to change it, not hard to do once you know where the access is, good luck

Why is my 42" dlp tv turns itself off after awhile?

the power supply is not working fine. your tv needs preventive service so that semiconductor, diodes and capacitors are changed on the power supply before it switches off completely on its own.

My Samsung DLP hln567w tv has NO picture on all

If the Lamp ignites and stays lit, but screen is completely black, not even the on screen display, then it is likely a bad DMD board.

If the lamp ignites and then turns off after a couple seconds then it is likely the color wheel is seized.

If the lamp never fires, but the TV clicks a bunch of times, then it could be a bad Ballast or the Lamp itself.

Samsung tv turns of by itself

The lamp can cause this but also a faulty lamp door switch will cause the same thing

Make shure that when you replace the lamp
the lamp door switch is in the up position before the door is put back on

Samsung HLS4266W 43" dlp

Power issues (Tv not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.
