This is a safety feature because the lamps can get extremely hot and cause a fire. Look behind the set and make sure that the grill that covers the fan is clear. Vacuum the fan area and with the set unplugged, move the fan with your fingers to make sure that it spins freely. If it does not, it is time to replace it. There are sensors that will detect air movement as well as the fan spinning. If either sensor detects a problem, the set will be prevented from starting.

Hope this helps,
Dan

Thermal fuse may be too sensitive


The unit has more than one fan, but dust and such inside on a fan can cause this also, it does not take a lot on the fan blades to slow a fan down enough to trigger this kind of error.

Hi,
Your tvs lamp is getting over heated. There will be a fan for colling the lamp. if the fan doesn't work properly the lamp will get over heated and the will switch off itself to avoid further damages. Do one thing, Remove the fan from the tv. In the fan there will be a specification sticker. Remove the sicker. Now you can see a hole in the center. its the bearing part of the fan. put one drop of oil in it. You can use any type of lubricating oil. rotate the fan leafs with finger for some time. after that re-stick the spec sticker. insert the fan in the tv. power ON the tv and watch. If the fan is available then try to replace the same. it will not cost a lot. just watch the following video for oiling the fan. its for a PC fan same for all dc fans.
ok

I turn the Tv on and after 2 or 3 minutes the tv turn off and the blue light stay on and the red light start blinking


Most likely the fan in the rear has gone bad and the lamp is overheating and the system identifies this and shuts it down. Check to see if cooling fan is activating on power up.

I replaced the fan # 2 after getting that error on


Which fan did samsung say was fan #2 ? As from my experience dealing with Samsung they dont know the difference between the fans but fan 2 error is usually refering to the fan under the light engine in the L7 and the L6 its the small one in the gray plastic case which blows under the ballast.

Optoma RD50 TV which shuts down on #1 fan failure


This could be a variant of, or a newer (or older) version of the "DMD fan failure" message.

Symptoms I had are, I stop hearing a fan when the message is displayed.
Then the temp LED keeps flashing RED until I either try to turn the TV on again,
Or turn MAIN power off/on again. BUT it repeats when I try to turn the TV on.
The picture appears normal until this happens ( about 15 sec.)

The solution is to FORCE a normal shutdown by hitting the TV off button
before the message appears.
You should see the power LED flashing RED/GREEN (cool down) and then RED (standby).

Mitsubishi wd52525 shows error code 37


error code 37 is either the dmd fan or the lamp fan. you can see the dmd fan with the cover off. you cannot set the lamp fan as it is under the light engine. I guess the easiest thing to do is get a lamp fan 299P282010 and a dmd fan 299P283010 and change them both.
