I doubt it is the CRT unless it is absolutely verified by doing some tests. More than likely it is a thermo sensitive part that is going out of specs after the set warms up. The location of the part is most likely in the scan amplifier sections or in the power supply section.

You would have to bring the set in for service. An experienced
TV service tech should be able to determine the faulty part(s), and fix it for you.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?I have had my samsung DLP (model SP50L6HD) for 4 years. This morning my children were watching TV and the tv started turning itself on and off. I switched it...

It could be the temp sensor going bad. This sensor sits on top of the metal housing which the bulb assembly slides into. The bulb assembly will have a hole on top and this is where the sensor is above. There is a small blue and white wire that plugs into it. If you pull the wire out and put a paper clip or wire in the coupling you will basically bypass the sensor connecting the blue and white wire. If your tv turns on then that is your problem. Its cheap too. Here were my symptoms..1] Turn tv on 2] Bulb would light up..(which eliminates the ballast) regular picture would show up (which eliminates the bulb and color wheel) 3] 30 seconds later tv would shut down with 3 flashing lights. After bypass the tv turned on as always and hasnt shut down yet. Always un plug tv first. Get the replacement part to avoid overheating and possible fire

Dryer wont run if load is heavy, belt has cracks.

I just replaced the motor on my Whirlpool which was 12 yrs. old. The motor bearings get bad and let the rotor move off-center and bind. There is a thermal overload in the motor that shuts it off when it gets too hot.
My solution: new motor, the belt is unrelated to the problem.

Shuts off after about 1 hr and then we have to power off

The TV might be on sleep mode, so it will stay on for an hour, then turn off again. You'll need to turn it off through the menu

Tv would not come on..sound then came on.. 1 hr later picture

That sounds like a faulty inverter board.

The inverter board is the high voltage board that supplies power to the back light lamps.

The inverter must be tested and eventually replaced.

Samsung TXM2796HF Turns off after 45 min to 1 hr

Probably some component in the power supply. Look for a leaking or swollen capacitor. They can change value during operation unlike a diode or transistor that either works or does not work. U might even remove and test all caps in the PS area and replace any one that is questionable regarding its specs.
