Re: samsung dlp1080p

This is very common in Samsung DLPs. The DMD board may be going bad or it could be one of the fans that cool the engine while it is running is going bad (even though the fan looks like it is running, it is not running fast enough to cool the engine). Just before it shuts down your picture should read at the bottom of you screen which fan is bad. But I have found that does not alway happen.

I would strongly recommend you to go ahead and replace the ballast.That's the only option you are left with.If you fail then there are two options get it repaired by a technician or buy a new one.

My TV turns off. As soon as I turn it back on it

try the lamp door switch in the back of the TV, door is held on by 1 screw, after door is open there is a blue switch by the slide that protects the lamp. push the switch down and up a couple of times then put cover back on and see if tv stays on. this was my problem with this exact tv.

Zenith dlp projection t.v. model#z52sz80 t.v. turns off randomly

This solution is for the zenith 56" DLP. Unplug the tv, either from the wall socket or the TV. While the TV is unplugged hold the power button on the TV for 40 seconds. This lets the excessive power drain from the TV. If this does not work call 1-800-243-0000. This is the number for their help line. This is the fix the tech gave me and it worked right away. Hope this helps and have a great day.

Tv sounds like motor running when turned on

It is no doubt the color wheel. Replace it soon or the ballast will also go out.

Samsung tv

as far as it turning off on its own I would get a fan on it and see if that make a difference make sure that the fan is able to flow around the tv especially through the back of it, if this stops it from turning off then it is an overheating problem

HLP, HCN HL-S The Start-up Problem or/and
3 LEDs in the front blinking.

Unplug the set, pull out the lamp module (not all the way - leave it on the track) and push it back in.

Power issues (Tv not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.
