I sent for the new bulb and have the same problem...and you wanted a tip?
I was told to purchase a new lamp, which I did for 125.oo. I still have the same problem....
Hi. I'm Steve. I'm sorry to hear about your TV. I will try my best to give you a precise and accurate answer.
Are you getting the three LEDs blinking like before?
Did the new lamp work at all? Even for a second?
Steve...I have no problem giving you a good rating as long as I can get some help...
So..Did the new lamp work at all? Even for a second?
Was the lamp a Philips or Osram lamp?
It says OSRAM on the box that i received
Ok, so that is a good lamp.
Then if you are getting a three blinker, the ballast is most likely bad and should be changed out.
The ballast is here: http://www.encompassparts.com/item/5829343/Samsung/BP47-00017A/Lamp-ballast
Installation is a little more involved but not hard if you know one end of a screwdriver form the other. I can help you there if you decide to do it.
Let me know.
I'll be here if you need more help. I want you to be 100% satisfied with my answer.Please be sure to indicate if my answer was helpful.
Thanks very much.
