Samsung HLS7178 - Problem: Timer, Lamp Standby/Temp blinking

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi thanks for taking the time and clicking on my thread.
I have a 4-5yr old Samsung HLS7178 71" DLP.
I recently discovered, thanks to my 1yr baby girl, if you turn off the TV accidently (again, my baby girl) and try to turn it back on,
the TV's Timer, Lamp & Standby/Temp LEDs just blink.
Eventually, after 10-15 mins I can get the TV to turn back on.
When the TV is cold, there is no problem what so ever to turn on.
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

P.S. I replaced the bulb about a year ago. So I don't think it's the problem.

I am not positive about Samsung, but most of the lamp based TVs give a short time to turn on again if it is turned off by accident. Some models it is as little a 10 seconds and some models it is closer to 1 minute. After that period, you need to allow the TV to perform it's preprogrammed cool down shut down sequence which is designed to protect the lamp. In most of the current models that is about 1 -2 minutes. Your 10 - 15 minutes does seem excessive. These time spans have changed over the years as the manufacturers learn more about the best shut down sequence and how long to give users to turn the TVs back on if turned off accidentally.
