Question about Samsung HP-R5012 Television
Shuts down after 1 hour or more. and when pressing back again the power button it backs to normal.
On this type of problem, the first thing I check is the AC line fuse on the power supply. Follow the Ac plug wire to the power supply board and where it plugs in, you will find the fuse. If: Then: It checks bad. Replace it. It goes out again. Call a Servicer. It is good. Check for the five volts that goes to the Main PCB. No five volts, change the power suppy (SMPS) Five volts is there, more than likely the Main needs replaced and SMPS. For a Samsung Servicer in your area: 1-800-SAMSUNG

Panal damage is a possibility however, you may also try to have a tech replace your mainboard since you have sound.

Sorry, but welcome to the world of highly efficient, component-critical switching power supplies.
These are all of those things and the failure often is related to a specific type of component, an electrolytic capacitor. These are chemical devices and cheap ones fail easily, the most expensive take little longer but the primary value shrinks while the losses climb until the part cannot do what it should any more.
The main power supply is probably at fault and without some technical background and a couple of test instruments, you will not be able to do the repair yourself.
What you can do though is; unplug the set, let it stand overnight or at least several hours, remove the back panel and look for a separate board with mostly larger components on it; it will have a ferrite core (no laminations as with a line-frequency part) transformer on it and several larger capacitors which are cylindrical and mounted vertically to the board.
Before touching anything inside, especially on that board, allow several hours to be safe since the larger capacitors can hold a painful voltage charge for some hours.
If you see signs of overheating such as discoloration of the board material, it may not be repairable but if you can find a part number on the board, you might be able to buy the power supply and install it yourself but it will likely have the same problem eventually unless they have altered the design.
If there are no signs of heat damage to the board, there may be companies offering to repair it as a subassembly instead of repairing the whole set which could be much more expensive.
If you choose to replace or have it done, the power supply still may not be at fault since most are capable of switching on and off if a downstream problem is causing an overload.

Most likely the set has lost vertical sweep or the feedback from that circuit. This will shut the set down to prevent a horizontal line from burning the face of the CRT. This will have to be looked at by a technician.

poke it open, you'll find bloated capacitors at power supply board. biggest one, with power cord pluged into. replace with thesame value(s).
you good to go!
don't lie, next time! your set has been acting up fpr a while, before it quit. Remembering: few attempts to turn it on, then it works!
