Question about Samsung HLN467W 46" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

New Bulb Doesn't Light

I appreciate your help... I had the 'green lamp light blinking' - then recycled three times - then 'all three lights blinking'. I got a new style Philips bulb with adapter from DM - when I put it in it was different - 'only the green lamp light would blink continuously' - no recycle this time? But bulb did not fire up. I called DM - they recommended get a new ballast. I installed the new ballast today - with old or new bulb - it only has 'blinking green light' - no recycling - bulb does not fire up.  What is happening overall: I plug it in, turn it on - I hear a click - fans come on - green light blinks - seems like a very slight speaker 'sound' - with the back access panel removed there is a solid green light on (thru the top of the 'cheese grater' full of holes) - the color wheel is not turning - (all of this while checking with the cover safety switch closed with a rubber band). In order to get the fans to shut down I have to unplug the set - the power button only 'engages' when turning it on? I'm quite good at repairing most things but this is a real puzzle to me. If you have photos of some parts to check I can use a VOM - or any other diagnostic suggestions. How can I tell if it is the power board? Thanks! Bill Robison          [email protected]

    I have nearly the same problem. Green lamp light blinking and the set turns itself off after about 10 seconds. I have not replaced the bulb or ballast and cannot get a Samsung tech here (Yokosuka, Japan). The Samsung status light diagnostic chart does not include an entry for only the "Lamp" bulb flashing.

Samsung hlp6163w dlp tv not working, new lamp, new ballast, still three blinking lights

If color wheel does not run lamp will not fire----with lamp removed have you looked at the wheel----if not running it will cause almost instant shutdown of lamp and the set.

If the DMD board is bad time for a new set as it is well over 500 .

Ballast failure is more that likley the problem. Is the lamp light blinking,...once every 5 seconds? Discontinued part and can only be purchased used or rebuilt. Rebuilt units are available, check Ebay. Have a service type person confirm problem before throwing good money after bad!

I own a Samsung HL-R5067W 50'' DLP. Set is about 3 years old. Recently I heard a loud pop while viewing, picture distorted, but never went blank. I turned set off. When turned on again a loud whining noise...

Check your color wheel. There is a DIY guide for replacing the color wheel. Mine did the same thing yours is and my color wheel was all busted up. Unfortunately after replacing the color wheel my set continues to do the same thing, but this could mean I need to replace the ballast as well.

Cmon, read your manual, it specifically mentions 3 lights...

Means your lamp cover or lamp isn't secure...

Remove the lamp and insert it until you hear it lock into place and screw the lamp cover door tight...
