LAMP HELP PLEASE.

Post by christopher » Fri Nov 19, 2010 5:43 am

I just replaced my lamp on my Samsung DLP. Model number is HL-T5055WX. The original symptom was the TV shutting off on its own. My replacement lamp was a Phillips and the correct number. It worked great for two days. I had the TV on maybe 2 hours yesterday and about 45 minutes to an hour today and it just shut off again. I was told that replacing the lamp would fix the TV, but it didn't. Any other solutions? Any help would be amazing.

After replacing the lamp, there might be issues with your ballast (the circuit board that powers the lamp) i recommend you read this:
