The fan connection of the circuit board is loose or crack or cold solder joint,that is the cause of the message or the fan is defected already because of the overheating,change it with a new one.Before you replaced the fan try to reheat or resolder sometimes cold solder is the culprit.
Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected (hanging by a thread). When the TV turns on heat would be generated which would be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough.

Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections" except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold solder".

Again on the assumption of no defective parts, then seeking a more experienced buddy for the soldering might be to your advantage. This is of course in addition to the possible electrical hazards when repairing....

Good luck:

My samsung 61in. Dlp screen flashes green/blue pic is viewable but everything is the two colors, also screen will flash icon check fan #1


You have 2 problems. Problem 1 either you main board or light engine is bad and needs to be replaced. Problem 2 is exactly what your TV says. Fan#1 isn't functioning properly so a heat sencor is being actiated to shut down your set. Make sure all the fans are free of debree and spinning. If one is not spinning, make sure it has voltage going to it. This will let you know if you have a bad fan, or a bad board.

Phillps tv model number 50pl9126d/37 what is the red light mean


It depends on whether you are able to see a clear image or not. check the lamp first if its more than 2 yrs old you may need a new one, last one we checked with the problem you describe had a fan running slow. The fan nearest the lamp needs to run correctly or the tv will shut down. Good luck !

61" samsung DLP 3 years old. Keeps turning off by itself.


Get a small but powerful used computer fan and place it in the TV to replace the defective old fan.That's the best way.The factory fans in these TVs don't last.

Lamp light blinks 3 times shuts down


The CLS problem. Im thinking that at least you made a visual inspection of the power suply and the capacitors around it. Then if everything normal in the area then the microdisplay (inside the ligth engine) can be damaged. (when the tv is working normally the microdisplay sends a pulse to turn on ballast and lamp finally.

The sweetkyman: when the fan is bad th tv shuts down imm. (if you unplug the fan when the tv is working normal the computer detects the overcurrent system works and shuts down the set) when a fan is all dirty and tons of dust on it the tv tends to work but after some hours the tv shuts down.

Since the lamp generates a lot of heat, the fans are continuously monitored for correct function. The owner's manual should show you the location of the fans. Make sure that the grills covering the fans are clear of dust and that the fans are clean. Sometimes dirt can cause the fan blades to slow down enough to trigger the safety alert.

Keep us posted.
