The lamps are usually good for 3000+ hours across the board, so this shouldn't be happening within 3 months, even if the TV was on 24 hours a day. Constant On/Off can significantly reduce the life as well, but that is likely not the issue here. However, it may be an issue with the lamp not working properly. Was the replacement lamp a genuine Samsung part, or was the lamp taken apart and replaced with a new glass piece?
I replaced my samsung DLP (model HLR5067WX/XAA) lamp approximately 3 months ago. Within the past month I've noticed that my screen is too dark. I've tried adjusting my colors, brightness etc to no avail. Could this be a problem with my lamp after only three months. Please help..............Thanks
