Customer Question

I have Samsung rear projection TV. Approximately 1 minute after I turn on the TV the screen goes blank, then followed by the TV turning off. In the front at the main switch a message says timer and lamp. I assume the lamp is bad. Please confirm

Hello, When the Lamp is bad on this set- all three lights will blink- Timer/Lamp/Standby-Temp

Are you saying that only Timer and Lamp are blinking and not "Standby-Tamp"?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Your correct the Standy-Temp is also blinking

Okay thanks. That does mean the lamp has failed then per the manuals for this set. You would want to purchase and replace the lamp to fix the issue. The correct OEM lamp can be purchased at the link below for your model:
