Look in the back of the set. You will find a Black Lamp Door with one screw at the top if your set is black. Remove the Lamp Door carefully. You might hear a click, If you do then reinstall the Lamp Door and tighten the screw. If you do not hear a click don't worry, replace the Lamp Door.This resets the Interlock Safety Switch. The switch gets hot and opens the circuit. Any time the rear case is removed you must do this as the rear case does not engage the Interlock Switch properly. If the tv comes on and you have a picture wait a while to see if the set turns back off, If it does then you might have a bad a Lamp and or Lamp Ballast. Take the Lamp out through the Lamp Door and look at the Front Galss. DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS AT ALL!. If you see shattered glass, you have a bad lamp. If you do not replace the Lamp any way because the Lamps for this Model can look good and still be bad.

Samsung hl-s5087w.... Tv is 4.5 years old, and is about 200 hours into its 3rd bulb. Yesterday, very similar to when the bulbs burnt out, it shut off. I thought that it may be getting too hot, so after it...

Above the light is a temp sensor with a blue and white wire plug. This sensor is the problem for all these shut downs in my opinion. Pull out plug and jump it with a wire or paper clip bypassing sensor. Tv should work now!!!!

My Samsung DLP keeps turning off when It is first turned on. It will keep doing it untill the tv warms up. Please let me know what could plossibly be wrong.

It is mainly because you have a leaky electrolytic capacitor on the power supply section. Leaky capacitor will affect the performance of the power supply once sense by the processor it will automatically shuts down the unit. The symptom will get worst if the faulty parts will not be replaced.
I've advice you to look for a qualified technician to fix the problem or send it to repair shop. But check first the warranty. If it's still covered then avail it the manufacturer of your tv will fix it for you for free or a little charge only.
Pls rate my help...
Thanks for using fixya...

Samsung HL-S5087W DLP rear projection TV keeps shut off and won't stay on longer than 30 seconds.

your bulb has reached the end of its life (at least this is what your tv thinks) you need to replace the bulb and or make the think you did. (there is a reset in the service menu for the bulb)
