    I turn on the T.V. and the picture is fine but the fan just hums. It is a loud hum noise and will not stop when the tv is on. Sound, picture and everything else is fine.

    1) is this a problem with the fan?

    2) How do we fix it?

    Thank you,

My samsung television keeps shutting off

Your television keeps shutting down to protect itself from interal damage. What is happening is that one of the fans on the inside of the television are faulty and it is either spinning than stopping or not getting the required power that it needs to spin or its getting the required power but the fan is faulty. Fans are usually around $25 dollars and are fairly easy to replace as a consumer. The other problem that you may have is that on the top of your lamp housing you have a thermostat. You will know that it is the thermostat because you will see two individual wires go to it and there will be a connector that is plugged into a very tiny circuit board which will be labled thermostat sensor. Order the sensor because they are usually around $5. when you recieve the thermostat you will have to desolder and sodler the new thermostat unto the thermostat sensor board. I recommend changing out all three items your lamp cooling fan, the DMD board fan adn the thermostat. You will save yourself hundreds of dollars rather than bringing your televison to a technician such as myself and it will only cost you about $75 to fix total. The only reason I recommend changin all three items out is because you will already have your televison apart, might as well replace all three items to save yourself shipping costs and make sure your problem is fixed before putting it back together. The lamp cooling fan is inside the house on the right side, actually mounted to the front right on the lamp housing. In order to complete the procedure disconnect the DVI cable from the left side (not the DMD Board), disconnect the top two wire from the left side of the DMD board, and disconnnect the ballast wire. Remove the two screws holding the circuit tray in place and sometime there is also a bracket on the right side.

My televison keeps turning off after being on for about 2 min. bulb has already been replaced.

Sounds like it is heating up on the inside. If you take the back cover competely off you will see that you have 4 fans on the inside, 2 big fans one on each side, one to cool the lamp and either 1 or 2 little fans which are located on the electrical box on left side and sometimes one that is mounted behind the DMD Board which is located behind the engine assembly. Because it is shutting down it tells me that the fan to cool the lamp is faulty. What happens is the fan cools the lamp, if the lamp gets too hot the television shuts down to protect itself from damage. Because AKAI parts are extremely rare to find I recommend not attempting to even turn on the television until you are able to replace the lamp cooling fan. If you see it is spinning it doesnt always mean that it is working because it may not be spinning fast enough. Good luck in finding a fan for it.
