Been having some issues with my Samsung. The lamp went out recently and I just replaced it with a new one and its only been 5 days and a new issue has surfaced. The TV will power up and the picture will be great, then it suddenly shuts off, makes a buzzing noise and starts to boot back up. After a few moments, the picture returns. That happened once last night and today, my girlfriend noticed it happened 3 times earlier in a span of 30 minutes. This was at 10am pacific. The TV was off until 5pm today and since then, no shut downs. Any one have an idea what the issue is? I have a hunch that its either the power supply or the ballast. I can replace the ballast, but not sure how much the power supply is or where I can get one. I would rather spend as little to repair it myself than paying a repair tech to tell me what it is and charge extra to install. Any help is greatly appreciated.
