Yes, I can tell you that when the capacitors start bulging the you will need to replace the device. This is a sign that the capacitors are starting to fail. Now if you can put in a fan somewhere that will kept the heat down then you might be able to use it a little longer. You have got to get the heat away from the mother board.

Samsung HLN507W turns on for about one minute then shuts off, three blinking lights stay on in front. It is not the lamp, nor the blue lamp cover switch for sure. I unplug it and immediately turn it on. It always does the same thing: comes on for 1 minute, then powers down - there is no wait time in between unplugging and powering on. All fans seem to work and I cleaned the dust out of it. Help.

My samsung dlp hl-s5686w turns for a minute video disappears audio continues and three lights flash the standby/temp,timer,lamp. all at the same time.


I'm having the same problem. Tried several things from dusting the inside with an air blower, removing the bulb and putting it back in, making sure the side panel is installed correctly and none of this has kept it from shutting off. Samsung's site says the three lights flashing means replace the bulb but I'm not buying it. My picture looks perfect....jsut that the TV keeps turning off. It all seems like a heating problem but my fans are still working. I'm scratching my head thinking what to try before forking out $150 for a new bulb.

Tv switches off after 5 mins


There might be three or more reasons for this:
1) The sleep timer may be on causing the TV to turn off after a preset time.
2) If sleep timer is on and no signal from the remote is received for a preset time (Samsung: 15 minutes) the tv will turn itself off.
3) The TV may have been turned on automaticaly with "On Timer". If so, and no signal is received for a preset time (Samsung: 3 hours) the tv will turn itself off.
4) A fan is not working or a vent is blocked causing the TV to overheat and turn off.
For 1) thru 3), go to the "setup" menu and make sure "sleep timer" and "On Timer" are turned off.

TV SHUT S ITS SELF OFF


Is the unit free of dust and debris from dust? If its overheating there are may factors that play in this

1. fan spinning but not enought RPM rotations per min ( not fast enough)
2. room temp
3. dust

other then that some capictors must have exploded inside withc will cause a overheat.

Replaced lamp still not working


Power issues (Tv True True (``````````` (``````````` 0 95250 95250 clip_image002.gif not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung True True (``````````` (``````````` 0 95250 95250 clip_image002.gif is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.
