Sounds like you had a power supply go bad in the unit which would require some extensive troubleshooting. I'd recommend a repair facility since it may be time consuming without mfg support.

We have a Samsung 61 inch DLP tv. That started buzzing a few weeks ago when it was turned on. At first it only lasted a few seconds. Kinda sounds like a bad barring, Then this last week it began to last...

Highly likely that the sound was coming from the bearing in the color wheel assembly. When the bearing fails, the color wheel cannot spin at the correct speed, and because the speed is measured by the control board, the TV will shut down.

If you can handle a screwdriver - entire color wheel assembly can be replaced for about $100 and 30 minutes of your time.

I began to have issues with my '05 Hummer H2 a few weeks ago.....

P0496 = "Evaporative emission system high purge flow"

At the dealership, we get a lot of complaints like yours and they all started with running too low on fuel or running out.

Start with replacing the fuel filter and get back to me.

Running low/out tends to suck up micro trash from the bottom of the gas tank and that gunk clogs the fuel filter.

Running rough-1987 Ford Ranger 2.3 L 4 cyl. Had been running very smoothly until 2 weeks ago when it began backfiring and running rough, especially at low speeds, without my having made any adjustmen

If your car has a mas air flow sensor (usualy located right aroung air filter or in air passage after the air filter) check and clean the sensor. This looks like a small spring on the end of 2 wires. BE CAREFUL not to damage the sensor. I have seen where the sensor gets dirty over time and this can cause a rough idle.

My HyVision LCD TV Picture disappears after a few seconds

It seems that the "backlight" has gone bad. "Backlight" is the device that allows to see the picture in an LCD TV, when they are about to go bad the symptom that you describe is very usual. It depends on the tv manufacturers and model to expect how long the "backlight" is going to last in a tv.You can shop around for a replacement part and try to do it yourself or take it to an especialized technician. Good luck..

Denon AVR881 Turns on for few seconds then shuts OFF

(Probably too late to help you, but I'll post so others can see)
I had the same thing happen to my trust AVR-881 two weeks ago. Even re-initializing the processor was no help.
I took it to the repair shop. They replaced three transistors on the board, and charged about $175 for the job.

I had my distributor replaced 7 weeks ago. The idle has been really rough ever since the replacment. Now I have white smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe when I first start it. Smoke usually disappears in...

sounds like your timimg is off either by a tooth or at least a few degrees, does it make a rattling sound when you come on to the fuel hard? Also check to see if your coolant level is going down if so you could have a bad head gasket.

Won't turn on

those tvs will try 3 times before completely shutting down. you can try and take the back off and check CP150 it is a large capactior located near the middle of the board on the left hand side(looking from back) if it looks and feels like the top is vented or puffed out then that could be the problem. if not i suggest having a qualified service tech take a look because there are too many things that could be the root cause.
