Question about Epson Livingstation LS57P2 57" Rear Projection HDTV

3 Answers

Overheating Have had this tv for over 2 yrs now and this is the first time this message has come up. "T.V. is overheating." in the bottom left hand corner. I know it's self explanitory but it has never happened before and now it happens after about 15 - 30 min. Any ideas?

    Thanks for the reply. I've had no internet for a while. The fan is working. I've noticed that the overheating only happens when it's hot outside. I just don't understand why that is a problem after 2 yrs.

    Thanks for the reply. As long as it's not a serious problem I'll just keep the A\C on.

There are contacts inside the Livingstation that make contact with the heat sensor on the bulb. If you take the bulb out you will see them in the upper right corner of the bulb housing in the TV. These can become corroded resulting in a poor connection between the TV and the bulb. A poor connection will make the TV think it's over heating even if it's not. There are 3 contacts in the TV and 3 on the bulb. Clean these contacts with a lint free cloth and some alcohol on both the TV and the bulb, being careful not to let your fingers touch the bulb. If your hands are too big to reach inside the TV, rub a pencil's eraser over the contacts to clean them. When putting the bulb back into the TV, seat as firmly as possible, then tighten the upper right screw first.

There is a fan in the lower rear. Check to be sure that the pair path is clear and that the fan is spinning.

    I would suspect the heat sensor transistor at this point. IT may be "noisy". Depending upon where the sensor actually is installed, the ambient heat may cause the circuit board to pull the sensor away from its heatsink causing premature detection and shutdown.

I know you posted this over a year ago, but I also have a Epson Livingstation with the same problem. In the manual it mentions how important it is to clean the vent located on the lower left, back part of the t.v. You need to clean it about once a month it says in the Manual.

My sa,sung tv hlt5075s is turning off by its self after a couple hours i read that it has a over heat problem. how do i fix it from overheating


They do have an overheating problem. It is serious and my husband solved the problem. I wish I could get this out to everyone on the internet. Behind the TV, on the left, is a cover over the lamp and color wheel. Remove it. Buy a SMAL
fan at Walmart for about $10 and set it there. Make sure it is running every time you turn your TV on. You will never have overheating problems again. Our TV Samsung would run for about an hour, then the color would washout. NEVER AGAIN. It is perfect.

Overheating... My temp light keeps coming on. I checked the oil and it is fine. Checked the radiator and it is full. Engine coolant bottle is full.... So what is making it overheat?


By the sound of it your light is telling you a lie and theres nothing wrong with the engine as if your not loosing any water and engine isent overheating then just get another sensor fitted.
But if you are loosing water or the engine is overheating ,then check the radiator with engine turned off,, put your hand on the top half of the core and then the bottom 1/2 of the rad core and if the top 1/2 is cold and the bottom is hot then you have either the thermostat is faulty or the radiator is dirty inside and maybe also out side in the fins.
Let me know how you get on . RON

Tv cuts off by it self. flashes message on bottom of screen check fan no. 2.


You haven't said which Samsung projector you have so I have to give you a generalised answer: The projector is overheating and going into protective mode.

Do as the message says: check the cooling fans as you won't know which one is fan no.2. Mostly it's simply the air filters which have clogged with dust and they're always easy to remove and clean. If you wash the filters they must be bone dry before you reinstall them.

If you have AppleCare and your PB is less than 3 yrs old, take it in- that seems abnormal. It's really strange that your PB was heating up while it was shut down. THat indicated that there is s/thing wrong with the shutdown mechanism. Make sure the machine is hsut down before closing the lid. Let it rest a minute.
