If a “Check Fan” message appears on the screen:

Take a look at the fans while the unit is on. If a fan is not operating, check the connector to that fan. If the connection is good, replace the fan. If the fan is still not operating you have a problem with one of PCBs.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?I have had my samsung DLP (model SP50L6HD) for 4 years. This morning my children were watching TV and the tv started turning itself on and off. I switched it...

It could be the temp sensor going bad. This sensor sits on top of the metal housing which the bulb assembly slides into. The bulb assembly will have a hole on top and this is where the sensor is above. There is a small blue and white wire that plugs into it. If you pull the wire out and put a paper clip or wire in the coupling you will basically bypass the sensor connecting the blue and white wire. If your tv turns on then that is your problem. Its cheap too. Here were my symptoms..1] Turn tv on 2] Bulb would light up..(which eliminates the ballast) regular picture would show up (which eliminates the bulb and color wheel) 3] 30 seconds later tv would shut down with 3 flashing lights. After bypass the tv turned on as always and hasnt shut down yet. Always un plug tv first. Get the replacement part to avoid overheating and possible fire

My tv keeps switching on and off

9 times out of 10 this problem is caused by over heating. most likely the fan motor has quit operating. When you turn on the tv get close to the back, and if you can find the fan outlet. Listen for the fan, or feel for air moving. If the motor has quit, chances are this is causing over heating. Rear projecton tvs use either three color guns (high heat) or use a projector bulb which is also very hot when running. If its not the fan, then you may have a faulty "thermistor" which is what senses the temperature inside the tv cavity. if this is bad, you will need hire a tech to take it apart and replace it, or if your handy with electronics, take it apart and replace it yourself.

My tv comes on then says fan 2 error . were is the fan 2 so i can try to clean it and will it work if i do ?

You can't clean fan, it is dead or almost dead it have to be replaced for the new one.
In order to determine which fan it is you have to remove TV's rear cover, locate lamp door switch ( it have blue plastic spring loaded lever) push it (otherwise TV will not turn on) and check which fan does not spin. Generally there are 3 fans - Ballast, lamp and DMD. DMD is the smallest one in size.
If you feel that this is too much to do - ask professional for help, repair should cost you around $200.

I replaced the fan # 2 after getting that error on

Which fan did samsung say was fan #2 ? As from my experience dealing with Samsung they dont know the difference between the fans but fan 2 error is usually refering to the fan under the light engine in the L7 and the L6 its the small one in the gray plastic case which blows under the ballast.

Normally we replace the fan because it can't run at the correct speed and the Micro detects that, then sends the error to the screen for you to see.

Samsung sp50l6hd it is showing up on the sceen fan 2 error can any one help?

If a “Fan error message appears on the screen:

1. Look at the fans to see if they are running while the unit is on. If not running check the connector. If the connector is good replace the fan.

2. If all fans are operating, problem is in the fan detection circuit, Actuator, Protection Board or Digital Board.

Hlp5063w 50'' projected samsung lamp won't come back on ?

It could be the lamp but don't overlook the lamp door interlock switch. If the lamp door is not aligned properly, you may have intermittent shutdown or no start conditions. You can temporarily cross the interlock switch to confirm that this is the cause.
