My Samsung 61" takes about a minute to warm up. I've heard the 50" ones take about thirty seconds, so I was wondering if this was normal?

A minute does seem a little long, the power up time for the HLN5065W was between 20 and 30 seconds for me.

I just timed my HLM617W: 26 sec. from power-on to picture.

Seems like some wide variation. I tried changing "auto power" in the service menu, but it didn't seem to make any difference.


The manual says both 25 and 30 sec, but it is a generic manual covering all the models, so I am not sure how precise it is.


Is the lamp different for a 50" vs 61"? Any reason a 61" *should* take longer?

The 617 has a 120 Watt lamp, all others have a 100 Watt.

From what I understand, "auto power" set to On would turn the TV on when plugged in (good for externally controlled power).


Hope it helps,
