First of all check the remove the lamp and check the same. if it found burned you have to replace it. Remember one thing you have to reset the lamp hour After replacing the lamp. You can see the option in the menu.
resetting procedure.

2. power on the projector.
3. Press menu and select OPTION.
4. Press enter button and the select LAMP RUN TIME.
5. Press and hold MENU button for 3 seconds.
6. Lamp reset , power off message will display.

Also Check the lamp cooling fan of your projector. may be its has some problem. its not running at the correct RPM. Do one thing, Remove the fan from the projector. In the fan there will be a specification sticker. Remove the sicker. now u can see a hole in the center. its the bearing part of the fan. put one drop of oil in it. u can use any type of lubricating oil. rotate the fan leafs with finger for some time. after that re-stick the spec sticker. insert the fan in the projector. power ON the projector and watch.

Which is the #2 fan on hls6186wx/xaa samsung tv this message appears then tv turns itself off after a few minitues

I have a Samsung model HL-S6186 since 2006 and one month out of a 5year extended it would cut of by itself. I would turn it back on and it just progressively worse. After looking at the stories on the internet with others who had similar problems, i ordered a new lamp online for $ 56.00 with the same specs. Put the lamp back and found out that there was arching where the lamp connects to the rear. I dissembled everything cleaned the contacts and repaired the one burnt connector on the new lamp with a connector from the old lamp. Turned the tv on and now i got a check fan #1 problem. ordered an exact lamp fan from for $ 15.00. When it arrived i pulled everything apart and replace the fan, still got a check # 1 fan error message. I was able to download a free service schematic that covers the HL-S5086 Tv. After studying the signal flow i pulled out the DMB board and use a cheap multimeter from Radio Shack that had an audible continuity check position. Just to clarify a few points, on the DMD board the top female connector is from the Lamp ballast/Driver, the middle female connector labeled #cn805 on the board says fan # 3, when it is actually fan # 2 for error messages, and the bottom female connector on the board is labeled fan # 2 , when it is actually fan # 1 for error messages. With the DMD board in my hand and checking the continuity between all three pins of the connector, i discovered that i didn't get continuity between the top most pin where the color code is yellow for the the negative signal that the DMD board is looking for when all is working with these tube axial fans. Sure enough i realize that in my disconnecting the # fan connector i must have cause the solder joint to come loose or it must be a manufactory flaw in the process. The other two connections soldered on the board were solid.After shaking the female connector with receiving pins i decided to resolder the whole connector. This could be very delicate. For some reason the point where the # 1 fan signal gets to the DMD processor would not solder right. Not wanting to destroy the delicate $ 269.00 board , i just soldered a piece of earphone insulated fine wire from the connector point on top to the underside of the printed circuit board just before the signal goes to it's first component.I then cut out a 1/4 inch section of the trim metal that snaps on to the DMD board to insure that it won't tear loose my work. I then Check the continuity between the connector pin where the signal comes from the fan and the underside and i got an audible continuity sound. I put everything back together and my problems are solved. I only need to re-adjust the 4 tension screws that surround the heat sink to place the picture dead center. Be careful when you pull on all connectors, ensure that you bend the tabs the tug gently. Hope this helps someone out there. Incidently i have working and troubleshooting this problem for two weeks, in the meantime due to the basketball and the Super Bowl coming i panicked and went out and purchased my first Samsung 59 inch Plasma Tv package deal with a Blue Ray DVD player an glasses. The 2006 DLP Tv is workin great and the picture is much brighter than before. I have an extra new fan now in case the old # 1 lamp fan fails.

Samsung HLM507W will not turn on Alright so here's the deal....I got this TV for free from a guy on craigslist. He said he couldnt get it to turn on. He replaced the lamp, it still didn't work, so he gave up and now I have it. First thing I did was try and turn it on... The TV powered up for about 5 seconds, and then the screen started to flicker all kinds of crazy colors, and it shutdown shortly after with all 3 lights blinking. I figured this probably has to do with the color wheel, so I bought a new one and popped it in. Once installed, the TV started right up, and worked for the entire duration of it being on (approx 7 hours). Now it will not turn on. Here's the startup sequence: -Push power -A couple of audible clicks, and both cooling fans energize. -Lamp does not turn on, and after about 45 seconds of having just the fans running, the TV cycles off and tries to power itself back on. -Rinse and repeat about 3 times total. -After the 3rd attempt, the TV shuts down completely and all 3 lights start blinking in front. -Pushing power does not do anything with the 3 lights blinking. TV must be unplugged and pplugged back in before sequence can be attempted again. Looking for a possible solution/troubleshoot technique. Checked the fuses and they are fine, triple checked all of the connections. Seeing as the lamp doesnt even attempt to energize, Im thinking it could be the ballast, but I'm trying not to dump money into something that might not fix the problem. Thanks for your help!
