Samsung DLP Lamp/Ballast ? HELP!

I recently had to replace the lamp in my Samsung DLP TV after 3 years.  Worked great for 1 month.  Today, while watching TV, the screen went black.  The lamp no longer lights when I turn on the TV.  Does anyone know how to tell if this is a defective lamp or has the ballast gone bad?

Dale,

Dale,

Your problem could be a defective lamp.  Where did you buy your lamp from.  Make sure you buy from a reputable dealer.  Samsung parts department or my favorite discount-merchant.com ... They both sell original bulbs and have great service.

I bought my lamp from discount-merchant.com and it was here the next day... Man those guys are fast...  Great recommendation and my TV is working like a charm!
