I have a Samsung HLP 4674w DLP. The picture started to lose color and look like a negative image. Then it would get scrambled and eventually go out. Powering on and off sometimes fixed it, but only temporarily. Sometimes it would also turn off and on by itself. I thought it may be the lamp so I replaced it, but it did not fix the problem. Next I thought it may be the color wheel so I replaced that, but the problem did not go away. Also when this happens the Power switch will not turn the TV off.

No picture on a DLP when you can see the lamp is working is ALWAYS the DLP chip.

I cleaned out my Samsung hl-s6187w and put everything back together and now it doesn't turn on. It makes a beeping noise like fast morse code and keeps cycling the power trying to turn on. The ballast gets about 270v from the power board, but the lamp never comes on. Could it be the ballast or the dmd board causing the problem? I can hear the color wheel spool up, but the beeping isn't consistent to be the color wheel.

Picture lost color to greenish black and white and rapid blinking. Lamp indicator was orange for many weeks previous. rebooted TV and lamp would not come on. Replaced lamp, now it will not power up the lamp. Is this failure just about the lamp timer/counter needing to be reset or do I need a new ballast as well?
