The lamp in my Sammy DLP went. :(

Happened Wednesday. Called up Samsung, they said they'd have an authorized repair center come out to my house. They'd set up an appointment within 7 days. I was a little upset about the 7 days nonsense, but whatever.

So the place calls me yesterday, sets up an appt. for today.

Guy comes today. Takes a look, says the lamp is done. Replaces the whole shebang- new DLP chip, engine, lamp. Whole new assembly. Also shows me how to change the bulb for the future, and shows me how to get into the TV's main settings.

****** having to use my 27" tube for 2 days...now it's all good :)

Man... That is bad and good all at the same time.

DO you have a power filter/conditioner on it? Because either it was a defective lamp or power spikes can take those suckers right out.

No...all I have is a surge/UPS on it.

You might consider looking into one, even if it is just a cheap monster one because it can seriously help with any issues with power you might have. You might never even have a problem but I think it is much better to be safe than buying a new TV... :fyi:

I'm pretty sure the UPS has some sort of power filtering..I'll check it out.

It might actually....

In all honestly it was probably just a defective lamp...
