Yes, the cooling fan for the lamp is clogged with dust or debris and is not spinning. The fan blades may be over heated and distorted making it stop spinning. Shine a flashlight into the vent opening to see if the fan is spinning. If you get a series of four red flashes on the front panel lights, it means that the this fan has failed and needs to be replaced.

There is no less than two Cooling Fans on the right side. Either one of them could cause the problem. The one that turns slow or stops turning quickly is the one that is probably causing the problem.
I hope this helps,

My Samsung TV won't turn on


Please describe the problem more accurately. Flashing red usually means 'stand-by' state, flashing blue/green - starting up. When (during that) do you have a sound? Are there any 'high voltage' sounds like soft screeching from the screen? Is it LCD or LED?

When i turn the key forward the engine wants to start but doesnt just makes the roaring noise and doesnt start


It could be the starter, is it high pitch screeching, metal against metal, sound? Or more of whine? If it's metal against metal, the teeth on the flywheel ring gear might be damaged. If it's a high whine you are probably hearing the electric motor part of the stater and the "starter drive" is bad. The stater drive is part of the starter, it's the gear that engages with the flywheel gear. It is a one way clutch, it is supposed to hold when the starter is turning the engine. But, freewheel when the engine starts so it doesn't over rev the starter motor. When the drive goes bad it freewheels both ways. If you think the flywheel teeth are damaged you could try turning the engine by hand a little, WITH THE KEY OFF! Sometimes you can put a wrench on the alternator pulley nut and turn the engine a little. This will move the damaged teeth away from the starter and it might work now. Good luck.

When i turn on the laptop the lights under the the screen flash


Hi from what you are describing it looks like the laptop heat sink (fan) needs replacing or the motherboard itself needs replacing

I would recommend that the laptop be booked into a reputable repair firm to investigate further

Samsung HL-P5063W makes a whining sound and then goes off


The most common failure in the DLP that makes a whining sound would be the color wheel. They cost about $135 + labor because I wouldn't advise changing it by yourself.

I have a sony kdf60xbr950 rear projection television. the bulb has recently been replaced. one day while programming the tv to work with a universal remote it stopped turning on. when i attempt to turn...


depress the pin that the lamp cover should and the picture returns. never will i buy sony ever again. their tech support could not tell me to push a pin down when i described my problem to them and told them the led light pattern? i bought sony because i felt like i would have support for my products. boy was i wrong. now even though the tv works again it suffer from a blue blob across the screen now. perhaps the pin is not depressed all the way.

3 blinking lights and no picture


The whine or squealing you hear is either the color wheel or fan. To determine which, when the noise is heard from the set, turn it off and listen carefully. If squealing stops immediately then Tthe fault is the color wheel, not the fan. And sounds like that are generally the color wheel. A new color wheel is Samsung p/n# BP96-00250A for this model. Vance Baldwin carries them for $97.20 plus shipping. https://www.vancebaldwin.com Logon as guest, select parts and copy past the above part number in without any dashes. Good luck... Bill
