My Samsung 50" HLS5086W wide screen tv keeps shutting off....

I have a Samsung HLS5086W wide screen tv that I have had for about 8 months. The other day, while watching a show, the tv turned off. Two lights came on (one red, one green). I have to wait about 5 minutes to turn back on and after about an hour or so it will turn off again. What is the problem?

    The t.v. intermittently shuts off. It doesn't happen all of the time or every night just every now and then. The stand-by temp light is lit when it shuts off. The t.v. comes back on when I turn it on. Sometimes I also need to reset my cable box.

    I have had my Samsung for about 18 months and it has been great, until it started turning off by itself regularly. Very annoying, please help.

I have a Samsung DLP 61". The TV continued to turn off with no indications from the panel. I did some tests and determined the TV was not getting enough air circulation due to its poor fan inside. I installed a 110v computer fan on the outside of the vents on the rear of the TV to **** the heat out. Worked great and I have never had a problem since. Need further help or pictures let me know

I am not in my shop, so, I cannot look at the schematic. The only problem I have seen with two lights blinking with this set is an intermitent thermal fuse above the lamp. Sometimes the lamp door switch is in the up position and it needs to be down (This normally occurs when the lamp door has been opened and it also comes from the factory in the wrong position. The set has a one year warranty. Contact: 1-800-SAMSUNG for a local servicer.

Samsung 50 " plasma. PN50A450P1DXZA my screen went out a few days ago. the red power light when the tv is off blinks a lot when i try to turn it on. after a min or so the white light under the logo turns...

I have the same problem. No video just audio.
No on screen display visible either (volume, channel labels) nothing.

Samsung tried to repair this under warranty TWICE within 2 months. Second time they replaced circuit board and it worked for another 8 months. So I paid $1.500 for a TV that died again after 1,5 year - this is ridiculous.

I have no idea what the reason might be and I wont try to fix this since samsung tech could not fix it without replacing circuit board.

But if you don't hear any strange noises,tv is around 6000 hrs,2-4 yrs,It's major symptoms are clicking,electrical sounds,shuts off and on and get the lamp indicator, it could be time to replace the lamp.Note lamp sometimes doesnt look bad when it's bad.The lamp you need is BP9601472A you can find it here a blessed one!

If you talking about on one screen, you cant. BUT you can buy a TV card for your computer so that it will have a built in TV. so you can theoretically have split screen TV and computer. But what your thinking off only works on 2 or more player games consoles
