Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Your description that the unit "works perfectly" after "tries to turn on anywhere from 5 to 15 times" is very significant. This is indicative that no major component is faulty. I am at this point inclined to suspect that it is a case of cold solder (least likely) or loose connection (most likely). May I suggest an exploratory look and see; that is open the rear cover (a good number of screws) and visually inspect the wiring/connectors. Of particular interest would be the connectors with comparatively bigger power wires rather than the smaller signal wires. Additionally, you could also check if the fan blades rotate freely.

Offhand, I would discount possibility of heat related or as mentioned above, a faulty component. Surprisingly, what may be considered is the AC mains if you are using a power strip or voltage regulator. What could be tried is using another outlet.

A friendly word of caution. Most plasma designs do not react kindly to powering on/off/on hence testing powering it on after inspection should be done after a rest of about 15 minutes. Of course visual inspection should be carried out with the unit unplugged.

Should the above be not corrective and you are considering further DIY (do-it-yourself), pls post back if you have access to the service manual, a DVM/VOM and a soldering iron. It would also help to have an idea of your familiarity with electronic components & circuitry.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Sounds like the capacitors in the hyperboard or power supply are shorting out. A worn ballast may cause the same problem. This will require a voltmeter to test the different capacitors, or to be taken in. You will need knowledge of electronical repair and components to fix this problem.

42 inch Samsung DLP TV shuts off by itself. I can turn it back on and sometimes it stays on and other times shuts off within seconds. Some days it stays on all day without a problem. Other days it shuts...


I bypassed the safety switch (it was bad) and vacuumed and blew out all of the dust. So far with this set, 3 years old, I have replaced the bulb twice,it exploded both times, and the color wheel which also exploded! We love the picture but the next time it goes out, it goes out to the trash and I will purchase a top of the line LED/LCD set. No moving parts!!! Samsung designed and manufactured a whole bunch of lemon sets and will not admit it. I have found several hundred complaints about their DLP sets and only a few on other brands.

52 HD Samsung tv turns off


I have the same problem with my 56" HD Samsung. It shuts off automatically and then on the power button the word Lamp is light up in green. Sometimes I can turn it back on but other times it won't and I have to wait a bit. It's been embarassing a couple times when people were over for a movie. I believe it might be some kind of overheating problem but would like someone to confirm this.

Samsung 56" shuts off after 5 or 10 seconds see a checker board image before shutoff


When the set shuts down you need to see what lights are blinking. For example: Timer/ Temp/ lamp on the front panel. You should also count the number of times they blink and the sequence. Most DLP`s give an error code alerting the technician to check the balast, lamp, or fan etc. for malfunctions. Unfortunately I can not tell you exactly what is wrong given the current information. Howrver, the last Samsung I repaired for shutting down had a bad light engine.
