Customer Question

i have a Samsung dlp M# ***** the 3 lights are on front I tried Mute 182 power to reset counter and did not work. I was messing with it last week and got it to go on. Its off again and is making a whistle noise. The lamp was coming on for a brief second last night but can not get it to work. I did order new lamp to replace it anyway but do not see anything wrong with it. read that it might be a fan or wheel but could it be the balat making a whistle noise and could the fan make it go off. what can i do. Noland was helping me but needed to set up an account.

Hello, Tim Nolan is no longer with the site. I will be glad to help you. Now- you can't tell if the lamp is bad by simply viewing it. These are gas-charged lamps and can appear the same whether good or bad. Can you tell me when the last time was that the lamp was replaced?
