Samsung 4663W Lamp Problems

01-20-2006, 12:51 PM
My 15 month old Samsung 46" DPL TV lamp is a little wacky.. Last week I turned on the TV and no picture. The three lights on the switch were blinking. A little while later I turned the TV on and the lamp was working like nothing was wrong. A week passed without any problems and last night the same happened but only the lamp light was blinking. I waited a few minutes, turned on the TV and had a picture again. This is a mystery.

My question: Is this how a lamp acts before it burns out or do I have another problem? When the lamp works the picture is great. I have taken the lamp out and it look to be normal. Any ideas?

Could be a lamp module or ballast going bad. Not uncomon on some earlier Sammys, Sonys, etc. etc.

Check the manual,for the symptoms but also be 100 percent sure your power cord does not have any stress on it
