Question about Samsung HLR5067WX 50" Rear Projection HDTV
My Samsung 50'' DLP hlr5067wx/xaa has a message popping up every 3 minutes saying "Check Fan No. 3"... It will stay turned on indefinetly, and I can watch TV without issue aside from the error message popping up every few minutes. Samsung has told me (of course) that I can't fix this problem on my own, and I need to use a repairman. But I hate to spend any money until I know I have exhausted all options. My question is:
1. Where is Fan No. 3 in this model or are they labeled if I remove the back? (fat chance on them being labeled, I'm sure)
1. Is it possible that this problem could be fixed by using compressed air to clean the fan?
1. Can I replace this fan myself and if so where would I get the part?
I am decently saavy with hardware, I have been building computers for 10 years, but this would be my first attempt to fix a TV. Any assistance/answers are appreciated!
You can attempt to remove the back cover, but there is a very delicate mirror in the back. I'd just move it away from the wall, used compressed air to clean out the fans, and put everything back together. Just make sure you don't damage the color wheel or light engine.
