Hello I am new to the forum. I have a samsung DLP tv manufactured Feb 2006 that recently started to shut itself off and then procede to turn itself back on. It would do this about 5 times and then stay on. Just this morning I went to turn my tv on and the Lamp light would flash about 14 times and then the timer light would conme on for a second then repeat the process. It would do this 3 times before flashing all 3 lights at me, Temp, Timer, Lamp. I can hear what I guess is the fan coming on and spinning but I am not entirly sure. Is there a way to take a multi meter that has the tone setting on it and test the bulb to see if the fillement is actually shot or not? Or does it sound like it could be something completly different? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
