Lamp Replacement/on off Switch question for Samsung HL85679w

by Leslie Humble / November 8, 2009 9:18 AM PST

Please help me get my lamp out and check the on/off switch on my 3 year old HL85679w 56 in Samsung TV. I have read numerous threads about taking the door off and how eeeeasy it is to access your lamp and switch. Well I have taken the entire wrap around back off and it does not look anything like the other pictures of other models I have seen! The TV shut off in the middle of a show without warning and will not power back up. When I hit the power button I get two clicks like it turns on and immediately back off. So any advice there too. But PLEASE>>>>how do I get to the lamp/switch on this model!!

Lamp Replacement/on off Switch question for Samsung HL85679w

Leslie Humble,

The lamp housing is usually a small square door that you should be able to access by removing 4-or-less screws. Here's a picture of one of the DLP units:

Usually removing the lamp and reseating it (pushing it back in and tightening the screw in the lamp housing) will fix many issues with DLP where the unit can't turn on.

Does that help?

Mr. Samsung tech,
Thanks for writing back but furthur reading tells me that there is NO lamp in the above referenced model. Are you telling me there is?
Power cycled on and off for several weeks several times before TV would come on. and now TV will not come on at all. The picture was perfect untill the end when the TV would not come on. All three lights flash in random patterns. When we try to turn TV on we get two quick clicks...like it turns on and right back off?

Have air cleaned inside thouougly and checked out fans.

Should I still be looking for a lamp on HLS5679w? Or what would your next suggestion be.
Thanks,
Les

Leslie Humble,

Sorry, in the first post, there was no "S" in the model number, and I couldn't look up the exact model initially, so HL is typically a DLP model number - and most of our lineup is lamp based, so I apologize for the confusion.

The LED engine has to be replaced by a technician - it's extremely difficult.

As far as the On/Off, it could be a power supply issue - that would be my first guess. It's out of warranty, so you have several options, but I might suggest having a qualified tech come out and inspect the unit.
