Samsung HL56186W Fan question

I saw that you posted a answer regarding the cooling fans on this tv. Could you tell me where the 2 cooling fans are located. I have found one and it seems to be working but I could not locate the second one. The one I found was in the center in the rear of the TV next to the light bulb. Any help that you may have would be greatly appreciated. THx.

SOURCE: Cooling fan motor is making loud humming noise

You will have to pull out the light engine. That will consist of 4 or more screws and disconnecting some plugs. The the whole unit slides out where you can get to the fan housing.

Unless you're mechanically inclined, you should not try it as you could damage the assembly.

I don't know the part number off hand and some of those have newer part numbers as replacement for the original. Just do a google search to come up with a part number.

First you have to take the TV apart and locate the cooling fan. Once you have done that then remove it. On the fan there will be a part number. With that part number go online to Allied Electronics. They will be able to cross ref. you fan or get you an original. Keep in mind that if they do not have the "exact fan" you can match voltage and amperage and make it work just fine.

Samsung hdtv hums

You can try a hard reset: Unplug TV from AC mains and remove all cables from TV. Wait about 2 hours and let the tv cool and replug to AC power and redo the cabling. Switch on the TV and see if it works..if the fan does not run then you may need to replace the fan as its vital part which cools the tv part ,to fix this issue....

And use his link to replace the cooling fan....

Good luck...

Where is "fan #2" in Samsung dlp hl-r5656w?

I don't know which is fan #2 but if you take the back off, you will see one fan right in front of you. The other is harder to get to. It's the black box inside the silver covering with the holes (in left lower part).

My TV was acting up by having only one color showing until I let it cool down then it would work fine. I cut a hole in the plastic back cover and mounted a bigger computer fan. Just spliced it in the wires of the little fan. Fixed the problem

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.

Optoma RD50 TV which shuts down on #1 fan failure

This could be a variant of, or a newer (or older) version of the "DMD fan failure" message.

Symptoms I had are, I stop hearing a fan when the message is displayed.
Then the temp LED keeps flashing RED until I either try to turn the TV on again,
Or turn MAIN power off/on again. BUT it repeats when I try to turn the TV on.
The picture appears normal until this happens ( about 15 sec.)

The solution is to FORCE a normal shutdown by hitting the TV off button
before the message appears.
You should see the power LED flashing RED/GREEN (cool down) and then RED (standby).
