Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV
It seems to be an overheat problem because not only does it start shutting off on 'TEMP' after 3 hours but there are also fumes in the air that smell like 'burned electronic components'. They were so strong that a visiting friend had to go outside to breathe!
Weird thing is that the picture is beautiful.
Make sure there is plenty of air flow around DLP, If nothing is restricting the air flow then the fan may have a problem.
Dont use your DLP until the problem is diagnosed by a tech.Not only will you shorten the lamp life you can do unrepairable damage to the TV.
Call Samsung to see if the TV is still under warranty.
