My Samsung 50" DLP, model # HL-S5086W has started shutting itself off. When it does so, three lights on the front (1 red, two green) blink and don't stop.

I shut it off, turned it back on, and within a minute it shuts off and the lights blink.

I unplugged it for 5 minutes, plugged it back in, turned it on, same result.

Look for the manufacturing date on the back of the set. If the set was manufactured between March 2006 and Feb 2007 replace the lamp and the ballast with part numbers LAMP: BP96-01472A and BALLAST: BP47-00037A

Hope this helps

The date says March 2006, and the chassis # is L64D.

Should I do as you stated? I know it's nit-picking, but you did say "between".

Thank you Jesse.

OK, OK,

Remove "between" and insert "from" **** "to" ****

I'll get it right someday,

I figured as much, I just was looking for a cheaper way out. Sorry for being picky, and thank you for your responses!

First an update: After getting a good answer here last time (thanks again Jesse), I found that I had purchased an extended warranty, which I normally don't do.

So, the Geek Squad comes out (after a month), changes the lamp and ballast, and everything is fine. For a while. Now it's doing the same thing, but only once a day or so. This time, the red light blinks, the green one next to it stays dark, and the next green one blinks.

I may end up calling the Geek Squad again, but if I can fix it myself cheaply I may do that, rather than wait a month and miss the Super Bowl like I missed all the college bowl games.

If I had a extended warranty, I would never consider working on the set for two reasons.
1: Depending on how sensitive your service provider is, You could very easily void your extended warranty.
2: Some of the parts in this set are VERY expensive.

Hope this helps

Thanks again Jesse.

I called the Geek Squad and have an appointment for Feb 16th. :(

Back to my 19" tube and binoculars for the Super Bowl.

I do have an suggestion that will do no harm and will not cause any heartburn with your provider. Using a vacuum cleaner make sure all of the cabinet rear is clean of dust that may/could be causing a heat buildup

I saw a repair tip on here for the HLS series Samsung DLP TVs.
The tip said to replace the lamp and ballast. The reason the lamp and ballast didn't work is because this series had bad DMD boards. What is most likely happening is that the DMD isn't telling the color wheel to turn on which in turn won't let the lamp turn on. The lamp circuit must detect that the color wheel is in motion before letting the lamp turn on so the heat won't destroy a color wheel that is staying in one position. These are sometimes intermittent and very difficult to diagnose(and expensive). You can't take the chance of buying a used one due to the fact that you might be buying another problem board. This has been a major headache for me in the past.
