Question about Samsung HL-S4266W 42" HDTV
I haven't had my tv longer than a year, however, it just shuts off by itself. What's up with this?
I have a Samsung DLP HL-S4266W that turns off by itself, sometimes when I first turn it on, and other times after 15 minutes or so. Sometimes it doesn't experience this problem. I haven't been able to detect a pattern.
I have about a 3 foot samsugn tv that our son purchased around three years ago. We got a great rate as he works there. The past week i can be watching it and it turns inself off but turns itself back on within 5 seconds. The problem now is it is doing it every 30 seconds. A real pain. We only watch the TV at night as it is in the bedroom and we have it set to go off at a certain time. I have had some surgery and have been in the bedroom with TV on a lot in the past two weeks an this at first was just coming and going. I called the number that was on our purchase agreement and it will cost 150.00 just for someone to walk into our home. The it cost 50.oo per minute to work on the set. We paid less then 300.00 for the TV. When it first comes on it is fine and within one hour it starts doing the off and on thing. I just have left it off and going to another room to watch TV. Please help as to what to do.

Do not used compressed air. I tried that and it blew up the tube

I had a friend with the same problem. He had to clean the components and fans in the set. The accumulated dust had caused the set to run hot and a safety switch was the tv off. He purchased a few cans of compressed air and, as he blew the components and fans out, used a vacuum to capture the blown dust. Good luck.
