Question about Televison & Video
I have a 46" Samsung DLP HL-S4666W 1080i HDTV. I have had the TV for 2 years. In the past, the sound would disappear and I would just get video. This was usually resolved by turning the TV off, unplugging the TV, waiting for a few minutes, and plugging it back in. The sound would return. Then a week ago the screen went dark as well as the sound. The TV was still on but there was no sound, no picture (a black lit screen), and no response from any of the button on the remote or TV. The silver circle button in front of the TV is not lit up in any way. The power button didn't even work. The only way for me to turn it off was to unplug it. Again, I waited a few minutes and plugged it back in and the TV TURN ITSELF ON (along with the video game sound it makes when it turns on). The instant I plugged it back in, the lamp would light up and the fans would start up. The screen would be lit black, no sound and none of the controls work. I did not experience any flicker, or strobbing, or streaking as some other have. The only thing strange before this incident was the lost in sound periodically. Nothing weird with the picture.
My TV is not housed in a cabinet and has plenty of room to breath and ventilate. I took out the back covers and the lamp seems to be working. I don't hear any more noise than I normally do (my work desk is behind the TV so I'm pretty used to it). I don't smell anything burnt.
Does anyone have any clue as to what may be going on, especially the part about the TV turning itself on the instant it is plugged in?
I have a samsung 1080i that went off and wont come back on the light will flash and then go off but wont come on useally it would make a noise before it would come on

Here is the procedure for resetting the lamp timer.
This is a quick reference guide to show you how to reset your Samsung DLP TV’s lamp hour meter or hour counter. Resetting the counter is a very simple procedure.
Begin with the TV powered off.
Point your remote towards your TV.
Mute + 1 + 8 + 2 + Power.
Your TV set should now say “Loading Factory”.
Browse down to “Option” then press Enter (or the right cursor button).
NOTE: The Mute+1+8+2 buttons needs to be pressed down consecutively and fairly quickly. If your TV does not enter the service menu after using this combination, you can substitute MENU instead of MUTE. This seems to work for some sets. Also, the right cursor arrow also acts as the ENTER button, so try it if you’re having difficulty with the ENTER button.
To exit the service menu, hit press the EXIT button or just turn off your TV (remember not to turn on your TV immediately afterwards!).
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Look at the Large Lamp fan and if it is not rotating it is bad and needs to be replaced. If is ok then check the other two smaller fans. You do have a bad fan.
