Question about Samsung TX-R3080 30" TV
The tv is less than 3 years old and turns itself off after only being on for a few minutes. this was our first HD purchase in anticipation of 2/09. All other TV's in the house are 15+ years old and working fine. Did not think I would be replacing the samsung before the others. Help.

I have the same problem with my 56" HD Samsung. It shuts off automatically and then on the power button the word Lamp is light up in green. Sometimes I can turn it back on but other times it won't and I have to wait a bit. It's been embarassing a couple times when people were over for a movie. I believe it might be some kind of overheating problem but would like someone to confirm this.

My Samsun DLP turned off and “Screen Freeze”. Fixed it. How? Well, after reading lots of posts I almost purchased a new $136 bulb but decided to give it one more look. Turns out there’s a small switch inside the TV that needs to be depressed at all times. Samung put this switch there to turn the TV off if the rear panel is removed to protect people from harmful UV radiation. I just moved into a new apartment so it must have become unsettled.
I took my back plate off, pushed the button up and down several times then carefully replaced the panel. Note, the panel has a sort of plastic finger jutting out. Make sure this finger is firmly pressing the switch down. If not, wrap some tape around it to make the finger fatter. Dude, use black electrical tape so you don’t start a fire, OK?
So, my TV came back on and I danced a little jig in the living room. Then I started switching channels and everything froze when I got to channel 68. This didn’t look good. I read more posts about people getting this and simply returning the TV. Oh no! Well, I unplugged the TV several times and got bupkis. Frustrated, I finally pulled the power strip off the wall and plugged the TV into the wall. I got a blue screen and when I switched the channel back to 5 it started working. Danced a little jig. Plugged the antenna power into the wall, got better reception, channel surfed to 68 again (don’t ask), and got screen freeze . . yet again. Why? Unplugged the TV several times and got bupkis.
Then the bulb in my head finally went on. My Samsun does NOT like channel 68 but I could NOT get it back to channel 5. Every time I plugged the TV back in it turn on at channel 68 and froze. Ah, unplugged the antenna again, got the blue screen . . again . . and I was able to change the channel back to 5. Danced a little jig.
Hope this helps sooooooomeone.
