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.

Without the brand and model number it is hard to say for sure, but you have a high voltage draw on the board somewhere. This is complicated to check and in many instances you need specialized equipment to check different components, not to mention the dangerously high voltages involved. You will need to be very familiar with soldering small joints on a circuit board once the problem component is found.
If you are not familiar with television circuits or have a friend that is that can be there to guide you I strongly advise you not to try to repair it yourself.
That being said, the cost of any kind of electronics repair on a television will probably be $500 or more. If the board itself has to be replaced, it is probably no longer available due to the age of it. Most boards are no longer available after about 5 years because the technology is increasing so fast.
My reccommendation with the information you gave is to replace the set.
Hope this helps.
