I purchased my TV 4 years ago and it's been nothing but problem after problem for me. After 9 visits from the Best Buy technician the last visit as recent as 7/31/2008 the TV still doesn't work. The technician has replaced every part and I am still getting a black screen after 40 minutes of play. Please help!!
Did the technician replace the thermal sensors too? I think there are a few, one is in the color wheel cover. I'd suspect that it could take 40 min. to heat a faulty sensor to the trip point, and that this could make the TV turn the lamp off.

Yes. Of course. If the speed of rotation of color wheel to a projection TV or projector vary, it can obstruct proper working of the set.

I have a DLP Samsung 61 inch. It has verticial curved wave lines, these lines seem to move. like it's not on the station good. (These lines are not black, but almost white in color.) All my other TV's in the same house, using the same sat. dish have good pictures. Could you tell me my problem and what part to look for. Thanks
There are only 2 moving parts on a dlp tv the color wheel and the fan. The color wheel needs to be replaced about every 4 to 5 years. Some start to make noise and others like mine blow up with a bang. Go to utube to get instructions on how to replace it only cost me for part $100 good luck
You'll need to pull out the warranty paperwork and see what it says about repairs. You'll likely need to present the proof of purchase for the warranty along with the machine, for Best Buy to start the process. To be certain you're doing it right, consult the warranty to see what to do. You can void your extended warranty if you take the machine to someone not certified to work on the machine.

That kind of conflict (that's what it is) is tough for any one company to assist you on since it involves two manufacturers.
If you are very lucky, you might get help from a tech who has already stumbled across the same equipment complement.
I have the same problem, the service people indicated this a manufacturer problem, they are not calling it a recall, but requires up graded parts which could take 30 days or more to receive. He said if they do not receive the parts in 30 days they might replace the TV. My TV is a Samsung DLP 61 inch
