HL-S587 problem

by jC0ker / January 31, 2012 1:14 PM PST

I replaced the lamp in my set a few weeks ago as it had finally bit the dust. All was fine until last night when it decided to just not come on. Now when i turn it on I get the chime, the "lamp" light on the front panel flashes for a few seconds and then shuts down. I took the back cover off, held down the door switch and turned it on. The fan comes on and I hear a clicking sound but the lamp does not come on.
Any Ideas?

Can't edit my original post. My set is a HL-S5087W. I messed up the title, sorry.

Using the bulb instructions about handling, install and such, pull the bulb and put it back in. Do not short change the install by "hold down the door switch" but go ahead and finish the job.

Good luck.

Sorry, maybe I wasn't clear. I replaced the bulb a few weeks ago and it worked fine until the other night.
To trouble shoot it I removed and reinstalled the lamp/holder and put everything back together. Nothing.
Then I took the cover off again, held down the switch and powered on just to see if I could tell what was happening.
All I could see was the fan spinning and a clicking sound like an igniter. Not sure if it's a bulb problem, ballast problem, color wheel problem or ???

Keep in mind that this forum rarely goes into any repair discussions. Just seems to keep at the user serviceable level. Ballasts, wheels and more are what service techs may discuss on TV Repair Forums.

Maybe has a service manual you can buy?

Another thought.

Using google to see if there were any other repeating issues with this model this came to the top.

If the bulb is turning on (I missed if it did) then you can tell that there is more moving parts than you listed. This shows there are not many user serviceable parts past that bulb in these things.

And if it was that mirror and that issue, by moving the set around the issue could be exacerbated by the work and movement required to change the bulb.

I am not writing that this is the issue but a service tech would have it on their list of things to check.
