There is a thermal sensor and venting on that unit, that if blocked with dust, would send the thermal sensor higher than normal. I'd start there with cleaning the vents and filters then changing the sensor if needed...

CZ 2020C Flashing E3, how do I fix it?


If you place a small fan behind the heater where the controls are it should quit stopping on you. There is a small thermal sensor that is getting warm and shutting down your unit. Its a safety item.. but it also works when you need your heater the most. So place that fan and it will blow the heat into your room better also.

Samsung hl-s5087w.... Tv is 4.5 years old, and is about 200 hours into its 3rd bulb. Yesterday, very similar to when the bulbs burnt out, it shut off. I thought that it may be getting too hot, so after it...


Above the light is a temp sensor with a blue and white wire plug. This sensor is the problem for all these shut downs in my opinion. Pull out plug and jump it with a wire or paper clip bypassing sensor. Tv should work now!!!!

Air flow is blocked


In the 65" TVS there are 4 or more fans One of these is not functioning Probably the one over the power supply itself This will cause it to heat very quickly and shut down in a matter of about 20 seconds.

only way to find out which fan is not working isw to remove the back.

Have a mitsu wd-52631 - get message "tv will shut down in a few seconds - chk for air flow blockage" then shuts down - wil turn on after sit for several hours. No blockage evident.


Well....the reason you are getting an "airflow message" is that there is a thermal sensor on the BACK of the lamp cage, and the connections on it get to be "intermittent" after awhile...and when this happens...the computer thinks that the lamp is overheating due to a dirty filter or fan--and shuts down the set.

It is a small, white plastic sensor, with 2 wires on it, that go to a connector and it has a black and red wire(usually) in a twisted pair that connects to the sensor connector. The connectors need to be REMOVED and the sensor HARD-WIRED (directly connected to) the other pair of wires. IF you have done some electrical work before...this is easy. You only need about 3" of spare wire to patch in between the sensor and the other connector, after you cut the connectors off. BUT...if you do NOT have repair experience...I suggest you call a COMPETENT, FAIR tv shop in your area, if you do not have a service plan...and tell them you have a mits. set that needs the "airflow sensor problem" repaired . this CAN be done -in-home, in about an hour or less, and for under 300, including service call.

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.

Tv cuts off and on no picture or sound


Most TV shut downs like this are HEAT related.Try increased cooling with a fan blowing into it to test this on yours.If it works leave the fan running or repair with a nice little but strong computer fan placed behind the unit..

Tv shuts itself off


Look for the computer processor inside the TV. It needs to be cleaned. A can of compressed air will work. The processor is overheating and causing the tv to shut off. Look for the small fan that is supposed to keep the processor cool then remove the dust.

Good luck!
