Samsung HL56186W Fan question

I saw that you have posted an answer on the forum about this. I am getting this message on my screen that says "Check Fan #2". You mentioned that you cleaned the 2 cooling fans. Where are the fans? I found the 1st fan but not the second fan. The only fan that I found was the fan in the center once I took off the panel. Could you tell me where the second fan is? Thanks for any help!

    Thanks I will check this out. Do I have to remove the Lamp assembly to get to the fan?

  • fredwilson05 Sep 16, 2008

    I looked all around the tv yesterday and couldn't find the second fan. Do you remember if the single slide out circuit board you are referring to located on right side of the tv? or the left side of the tv that the audio/video inputs are located? Once again thanks for your help.

It's been a while since I had to clean the fans, from memory, there was a small fan close to the base of the removable lamp assembly, and the larger one with a shroud directing the airflow round the lamp.

Hope that helps.

    The fan assembly is all mounted on a single slide out circuit board, I removed the board as I found it easier to get at the small fan.

  • Compfranon Sep 16, 2008

    It was the right side of the tv, remember this is a different model so it may not have the same board. If you have checked ALL visble fans, cleaned them - then thats all I expect you can do.

    Tv cuts off by it self. flashes message on bottom of screen check fan no. 2.

    You haven't said which Samsung projector you have so I have to give you a generalised answer: The projector is overheating and going into protective mode.

    Do as the message says: check the cooling fans as you won't know which one is fan no.2. Mostly it's simply the air filters which have clogged with dust and they're always easy to remove and clean. If you wash the filters they must be bone dry before you reinstall them.

    Samsung hlp5063wx fan

    Quite possibly; the set apparently is sensing the operation of the cooling fan and that is probably defective. These sets generate a great deal of heat in specific areas and with no fan, they would quickly fail from heat alone.
    You should be able to spot the likely place for the fan if you remove the lower back panel of the set. If is probably a 'commodity' fan that is available from multiple sources; I wouldn't go to Samsung first since they will mark it up a bunch.
    If you can gain access to the fan and it isn't just being impeded by an accumulation of dust, get the make and model number of the fan from the label (almost always present) and do a search on the information you find.
