Samsung HLS6188w shuts off by itself

We had a big home improvement going on, we had to keep this TV [HLS6188w] in the storage for almost 9 to 10 months, we did not use it at all. Now improvement is done, we hook the tv up, but we are noticing strange behavior after we turn it on, "It shuts off by itself after some time very frequently", some time it happens every 15 to 20 minuts, some time it happens after 2 to 3 hours, we are curious, what could be the issue - After we bought this 2 years before, we did not use it much so there is not a question of replacing bulb, it could be due to we move the TV from one room to another room, not sure. ?, Was it because TV was not on for more than 9 months causing some circuits/capacitors/anything to get cold ? not sure, btw, I do not have a warranty.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

-Munno Rasania

the hlr series had a few problem with intermittent turning off. one was the lamp door cover switch, the other was the thermostat.. neither one is very costly and a good tech should be able to replace bothe parts at the same time..

SOURCE: RCA 52" Menu Keeps Popping Up and Down

I see this alot at the shop ... the front panel buttons have become damaged. THe best coarse of action is to replace the front button cuircit board assembly... **** there is a tempery fix untill you get the part... remove the front panel and take button cuicit board out...just use remote to control the tv. This is also a way to test to see if this is the problem.. if you romove the connector to the buttons and the problem goes away then the buttons are the problem. you get get this cuicit board at union electronics. You have to get the extended model number off the back ussally d52w20yx1 or yx2 or yxsomething...not to difficult a repair

SOURCE: TV shuts off every few minutes

The problem lies not with the manufacturer but with the technology. While DLP is one of the clearer, crisper rear projection technologies, it is still rear projection, and therefore the most unreliable of the TV technologies, LCDs being the most reliable and the least expensive to fix (relatively speaking). Projection TVs require that the lamp be changed every 2 years (with about 6 hours a day of use) but this can be as often as 6 months to a year for households that use the TV all day long. Lamps cost 150 to 200 dollars in most cases. Beside the lamp, the other parts in the TV can go as you have learned and they are not cheap to repair. I would recommend an LCD tv as they usually manifest problems in the first year (under warranty) if they are going to have any at all. No man-made technology is 100 percent, but I have to say that Samsung is an excellent brand, very high quality, and more features than the competitors. I own one myself (LCD) and have had it for over a year with not a single problem and it gets heavy use as I use it for HD cable, PC monitor, blu-ray, and Xbox 360.

To wrap things up, let me just say that were this problem to be fixed, being a projection TV you might run into these issues in another couple of years again. I would cut my losses and try an LCD (current generation plasmas are also good but they are super expensive to fix if they do break).
