When the set shuts down you need to see what lights are blinking. For example: Timer/ Temp/ lamp on the front panel. You should also count the number of times they blink and the sequence. Most DLP`s give an error code alerting the technician to check the balast, lamp, or fan etc. for malfunctions. Unfortunately I can not tell you exactly what is wrong given the current information. Howrver, the last Samsung I repaired for shutting down had a bad light engine.

I suspect that you may need to replace the ballast for the lamp and the power supply board.

Samsung TV Turns off after a few seconds red and green light flas

You are going to have to troubleshoot all the boards in the television until you find the problem. Start with power supply board. This part usually goes bad due to overheating and faulty components. You must check for brown spots on the boards , that are signs of overheating. Look for bad components like bulging capacitors and burnt resistors.Look for bad connections, like cold solder joints. you must be very careful working on the power supply board as it does have high voltages they can be very dangerous to the inexperienced user. Never test anything with the power on or connected.Use anti static protection straps and gloves around all the chips and microprocessors to avoid damaging them. Check all the other boards for the same problems. If you can find no problems, Then it is time to get help from a service center where they will have all the necessary testing equipment, To give the unit a more thorough testing for faulty components.Hope this helps you with your problem.

52 HD Samsung tv turns off

I have the same problem with my 56" HD Samsung. It shuts off automatically and then on the power button the word Lamp is light up in green. Sometimes I can turn it back on but other times it won't and I have to wait a bit. It's been embarassing a couple times when people were over for a movie. I believe it might be some kind of overheating problem but would like someone to confirm this.

56" DLP Turns on for just a few seconds, then off with the dreaded 3 lights

maybe, but I would replace the lamp first. the system looks at current draw from the lamp if it is too high it will shut down. these lamps are hard to detemine weakness by physical appearance. they are gas under presure. if after replacing the lamp the unit still has this problem then the balast. I have also seen the DMD board cause this problem. but the lamp is the most likley problem.
