Samsung hlp5063wx fan

When I turn on my samsung hlp5063wx, an onscreen message indicates that I should: check fan 1 2 3. The message stays on for about 30 seconds and then the tv shuts down. I recently replaced the color wheel. Is this problem repairable by a consumer with some electronic knowledge?

Hello,
i highly doubt all 3 fans went out at the same exact time! i have the same error message occasionally but now all i do is remove the lower back cover,on the middle left there is a connection that is about 12 inches from the bottom. i just toggle the connection and voila! it works fine for another month or so.
im starting to think that connection has to do with supplying power to the fans etc.
i originally thought it was the fan but it seems impossible to me now that it could be
samsung needs to replace all the bad dlps theyve produced i mean cmon this is america where its goverment for the people,right?
i find this forum very helpful but wish there were less questions and more answers to them.
if that doesnt fix it for you try cleaning it with a vacuum brush.
if that doesnt work just start bugging the hell out of samsung until they replace it.

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.

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

Panasonic TC-P46C2 Plasma TV. When you turn it on makes a clicking noise then red light stays blinking all the time. What part is likely to be defective?


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

Just bought a new smart tv and my panasonic recorder keeps saying not connected - why


Usually this message is because there is no direct connection between the recorder and the TV!

where do you see the message, if on the recorder then check cable connections! if on TV then turn on the recorder!
