I have a DLP TV Samsung HLP4674w and it made a popping noise and the lamp replacement lights went on. I had a spare lamp handy to be ready for this problem and replaced it according the manual (and the same way I replace the old lamp almost a year ago to the day). Unfortunately the picture did not return and my television is still flashing the lamp replacement lights.
The only other indication of a problem is something like a clicking noise that can be heard while the TV is trying to turn on. I have a repair appointment scheduled in 2 weeks but I was hoping there was something I could do to fix it myself before then, or at the very least make sure that the repair guy has the right parts. Any advice?
My friend and I just replaced the DLP lamp on his TV and I cannot believe how easy it was. When we got the thing out it looked like the flux captacitor from back to the future. That being said, it ended up being really easy to replace. It came with detailed instructions and only cost about 180 for the full assembly. We also called the company we bought it from and they answered a couple of our questions. they are at dlp lamps .com
I had the same problem, however, I heard a noise like the shattering of glass. After replacing the lamp without resolution, I took the guts out only to find that the color wheel shattered. I ordered a new one myself for $90 and will attempt to replace it, it definitely beats the $450 service fee that I was going to be charged. At worse, I'll return the lamp and color wheel and contribute that $450 to a new 56" DLP with a 5-year warranty.

Re: DLP TV Samsung HLP4674w No Picture
If you hear a ticking and or buzzing sound as it is trying to start up then most likely the replacement lamp is bad. Take it out and reseat it one more time to see what happens. The noise you hear is the ballast attempting to fire the lamp up.

If the lamp has been replaced I would think the Lamp ballast would be most likliest followed by the color wheel and then the Digital board. You can get any part needed for your model at www.tvrepairworld.com just leave them a email they respond quickly.
Sounds like the color wheel may have also gone bad. I recently saw a 56" Samsung where the bulb and color wheel went at the same time. The color wheel could produce a crying noise while trying to spin up.
This just means that your bulb is going out. My friend and I replaced his and it was really easy. I am recommending the company we got it from, because their excellant customer service. they walked us through the entire thing. just go to DLP lamps .com
All you can do is get it repaired or replace. Take the receipt (if you still have it) to the retailer you bought it from and ask about it. Alternative, phone Samsung (number is probably in the instruction manual that came with the TV, or look on their website) and ask if they can do anything about it.
Hopefully its only the lamp. Inspect lamp for breakage. Lamp power supply ok??. Check any air vents (filters if any) before replacing. Lamp life is only a few thousand hours, easy to do in a year, 5-6hrs a day. Check your manual.
HLS4266W 43" dlp. In less than 1 yr whining grew worse, but did know what it was. Year passed with warranty and lamp went out. Replaced lamp. Worked for 3.5 hrs. Turned on next day and did not work. Got another lamp, but did not work. Figured out might be color wheel. Replaced it too. TV started up. Watched that night. Turned on next day, heard loud pop. Lamp never came on. Withdrew and reinstalled lamp a couple times to see if that worked. Did not. Currently, with new lamp and color wheel installed, lamp light blinks, but no lamp comes on. What now?
