Samsung HLN617W wont come on
The lights showed lamp replacement, I installed a new lamp but set wouldn't come on. I re-set the lamp and messed with the switch in the back and still nothing, just a beeping noise. I took it to a TV repairman, he tells me the color wheel is fine but I need to replace the flywheel $360. What is that, and am I getting ripped off?
Same as new lamp not picture. Have yet to take to a repair man would like to know the answer to what is a fly wheel, real or ripoff

He may have meant "fly back" in this case referring to the ballast transformer for the lamp.
The ballast can be obtained from HERE for far less then he is charging. It is all but a swap out part. The only thing is the site has a wait time of almost 70 days though it will give you an idea of what price to expect for the part, then add labour onto that.
