My Battle with a Samsung DLP TV

My Samsung DLP set just bit the dust. Again!

I’ve replaced the bulb twice and the ballast once in the six years I’ve had the set (a Samsung HLP-4663 model).

Well, the other night while my wife and I were enjoying a rare date night away from the kids, the sitter called to inform us that the playroom TV died shortly after a loud popping noise was heard.

I figured that the bulb was about due for its 2 year replacement so I ordered another one from Amazon ($130 plus shipping).

Unfortunately, the bulb replacement didn’t do the trick, so now I’m stuck with a 46″ door stop in the middle of our playroom.

Anyone have any ideas on what to check or how to make sure the replacement bulb is good?
