You will have to remove the panel from the back,and check the fan,it is most likely gone out,or has dust and debris clogging it up.Do not use a vacuum,it will destroy the vacuum,and electricute you.Use compressed air and blow it clean.If the fan is shot,and does not run,or runs slow,then order a new one at a appliance store,Or a t v shop.If you use a external fan until you get the replacement ,it will get you by,If this was any help,please let us know,thank you.

Samsung HL-S4266W says to Check fan #1. I replaced it and it is running fine, but it still says it. Help!

Either something has to be done to clear that error or the set is detecting something.

I have a comment/suggestion here. that error may be misleading you, when you replaced the fan was there a noticeable amount of dust in the set---not like inside a carpet vac but noticeable.

I have seen this before in more than one set and brand---first thing we do is roll set outside (I know its getting to be winter) and with the cover off use compressed air and dust the whole set out--don't do it inside as even if set looks fairly dust free it may look like a dust storm when you do this.

I have seen many where units were dead or shutting down etc where once the air channels (unit takes in air from front and exhausts it toward the rear) I have a working set with no issues.

this is from experience and I hope it may help.

After tv is on for awhile and gets warm picture freezes but sound continues. after shutting down for quite awhile and turn it back on it works

analog board is most likely cause. Especially if you cant shut it off or change channels when it freezes.

My HL-S4266W Samsung projection tv shut off by itself and all lights were blinking. The TV would turn back on but turn itself off after a few minutes. I replaced the bulb but this did not fix the problem....

Actually7 there's a possibility that your ballast is the one causing the problem, the thing is that with samsung tvs what goes bad most of the time, besides the lamp, are the ballast and the colorwheel, in this case my hopes are on the ballast, but if you want to be more sure discountdashmerchantdotcom

My t.v. shuts off after a few minutes

try this tells you what the LEDs indicate. Apparently the cover on the back is not sealed properly, my guess is that it is a fan not working properly or some other reason the set is overheating.
