Question about Samsung HL-S6187W 61 in. HDTV

1 Answer

My TV set keeps turning off by itself.

The problem continues to happen at a quicker interval as turn the unit back on. I checked the timer and it is not on. The current bulb is the original the DLP came with. I thought about replacing it, but wasn't sure if that was the root problem. Please assist.

Since the lamp is the original I suggest replacing the lamp. There is a Black Lamp Door in the rear of the set. Remove the Door and then the Lamp Exhaust Duct. Then you will see the lamp. Loosen the one screw on the Lamp and pull straight out. Now look at the front of the lamp. If you see shattered glass in side then you have a bad lamp. Note: Sometimes there will be no shattered glass and the Lamp can still be bad. When you have the new lamp becareful not to touch the front glass, not even once. Reinstall the new Lamp in the reverse order and make sure that you reinstall the Lamp Door and tighten the screw as the tv will not work with the door missing. The Lamp part# is BP96-01472A.

My tv, when plugged in just keeps turning itself on and off in intervals of about 3 seconds. It doesn't give time for anything to come up on the screen at all.


Problem is in standby power supply or microprocessor area---not the do it yourself repair and likely not economical to repair due to age and brand of set.

Over tv its getting aoutmatically off


Hello

Put your hand on the back of your TV to check for overheating, if your set keeps switching itself off without warning.

Many TV sets come equipped with a safety feature that switches the power off if the set gets too warm.

Check the cooling vents located at the rear of your unit. Vents can collect dust and dirt, resulting in the fans becoming blocked and failing to work properly.

Remove dirt from the vents with a damp, clean cloth. Ensure the air conditioning is kept at adequate levels in the room where your TV is located. Keep the drapes shut on hot, sunny days to keep the room cooler.

Check the sleep-timer function on your TV if it keeps turning off. A sleep-timer is used to turn a television set off after a certain period of time has elapsed. If the sleep-timer is not turned off, your television will continue to turn itself off after a certain period of time.

If the problem persists,then a heat sink has gone bad.

The on/off button simply toggles a low voltage circuit that powers your tv. If it is dusty, it may complete the electrical circuit and send a false signal.

Take a can of compressed air, open the back and clean the dust off the circuit boards.

NOTE;opening the TV VOIDS warranty!!

How does the Timer and Sleep functions work for the SUMO KFR-70GW Heat Pump


Hi!!

On the timer function, when you press the button, it will ask you the starting time and ending time of when the unit will start and turn off by itself. prior to use this function, the clock on the control has to be set.. On the sleep function, it will give you the option to turn off unit on 30 min. intervals. Just like on a TV.

Why does my Sony 57" Hi-Scan 1080i? 16:9 Projection Television keep turning itself off. I turn it on and after 10 min it shuts itself off I can turn it back on but the longer it is on the quicker it shuts...


Sounds like a heat problem. Check to make sure that if it has a internal fan that it is working, and clean any dust build up, most projection tv's have fans, usually the number of flashes indicate a code that repeats.

Try Checking your remote and make sure it did not short out by taking out the batteries and see if it continues turning on and off. if so then i would recommend replacing the remote. if this does not work try putting tape over the ir receiver and see if it continues, this will check for interference.
