Question about Samsung HL-S5086W 50" HDTV

2 Answers

TV started making a loud grinding, humming noise a couple of weeks ago. But before that it would randomly shut itself off. I would simply unplug and plug it back in to get it working again. One time it shut off and it said check Fan #2. I didnt do it as I dont have the know how. But I unplugged it then plugged it back in and the TV then worked fine for months. Tonight I turned on my TV it makes the humming, grinding noise, the picture looks fine (just like it did as new). Then it shuts off in about 40 seconds, screen goes black and the 3 LED lights blink. It now does this every time I fire it up. My TV has now become unuseable. PLEASE HELP. It's now been one week IVe installed a new fan. The TV is quieter as the new fan works great, however it did not solve the problem of the TV shutting off after about 30 secs and the LEDs blinking. My TV is still unuseable could it be the bulb? PLEASE HELP.

SOURCE: I have a problem with my 4 year old Samsung DLP

It is definitely a fan, the one that blows on the covergence unit. I would not recommend you do this repair yourself. But that is definitely the issue. Let me know if you need the information for a local repair person in your area, just reply with your zip code.

Backing up very loud grinding like bearings


I would investigate the transfer case. By your description here it sounds as if the gears inside are worn and the drive chain inside is rubbing, causing the loud noise you hear.

No picture or sound


Hi, your color wheel needs to be replaced, the bearings fail causing the grinding noise, the new ones use "air bearings" so they are supposed to last much longer, video-tek

TV won't turn on even though it starts green, then goes off


Although my tv still does the "turn green and turn off" thing, I simply unplugged and repluggd the tv. After I did that, I pushed the "ON" button on the tv itself, unplugging and replugging the tv until it finally came on. I think the "instant warm-up" switch is going out.
