SOURCE: Tv shuts itself off

Look for the computer processor inside the TV. It needs to be cleaned. A can of compressed air will work. The processor is overheating and causing the tv to shut off. Look for the small fan that is supposed to keep the processor cool then remove the dust.

Good luck!

SOURCE: blinking lights on HLT5075SX/XAA samsung

Manual says you need to replace the lamp: When do I need to replace it?
• It should be replaced when the screen becomes darker, less clear or when all three LEDs on the front (STAND BY/TEMP, LAMP, and
TIMER) are flashing

SOURCE: Samsung hln617w dlp tv won't turn on. Red temp

Had similar problem. Thought it was the lamp. Examined old lamp but it appeared to be good. Ordered a new one anyway. Changed the lamp but the TV screen would not come on. It would make the usual noise as it was going to come on normally but it would cycle 3 times & then turn off. The LED lights in the front panel would indicate a defective lamp. Then read about the ballast. Changed the ballast & still same problem. Tried starting the TV without the lamp installed & noticed that the color wheel did not spin. Removed old color wheel & discovered it was broken. This appears to be the cause of all of my problems. I wish I new earlier of the test-turn on the TV without the lamp being installed & check to see if the color wheel is spinning. Would have save money on the lamp & ballast.

SOURCE: TV wont turn on

a bad power supply is most likely cause of this. Other possible cause is bad main circuit board.

that's from a thermal switch, to keep the innards cool, post use. Seems to me that you might just check to see that all vents are open and clear of debris, for starters.

Why is my Samsung RF26XAERS refrigerator repetitively chiming, and how can I fix it?


NOISE? from the fridge inside? or from the outside compressor? In overstressed compressor or low freon level will make weird noises? a bad fan in freezer will? Even seen bad ice makers make weird noises? if the ice making is hindered by obstructions?

Samsung HLS5086WX/XAA made popping noise and shut off, then made whirring noise.


When my TV did this in the past it ended up being the color wheel. I had someone replace it and it worked fine. I asked it if had to be calibrated after it is installed and he said no. Also make sure the door switch is pushed down when you install the back bulb door. Sometimes this switch can go bad as well.

I have a Samsung 42 inch projection tv that will only stay on for a few minutes. When it shuts off the front on/off button flashes. It is a model HLS4666WX/XAA version PB02.


Google your make and model and add flash codes to the end. The blinking light is a self diagnostic tool for service. Count the number of flashes and look it up on the website that comes up.

My Sansung HL-S4266W just shut off one evening while watching. It had all 3 lights blinking and it had been over 3 years since buying the tv. I replaced the bulb, nothing changed the tv would still turn on...


this could be the color engine or a power supply problem. My suggestion is to not put anymore money into this tv, its an old technology and you will be replacing parts for it every 3 or so years. eventially the parts will not be able to be found. Go get a new tv, save yourself money and headaches.

Samsung lns4041dx/xaa tv takes a long time to turn on the red LED light blinks 3 times then disappears - then LED light comes on again repeats the process for about 7 - 10 minutes then the TV turns on. ...


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

Samsung DLP HLR5668W has mostly dark picture + grinding noise


Pix looks like a light pipe issue, inside the Light Engine. as far as the shutting down, could be a bad fan causing the grinding and when stopps the DMD turns the set off.
