Fan #1 is out

Posted on Jan 16, 2008

  • Dan Frady Apr 29, 2012

    I had this problem yesterday with my HLT6187s (out of warranty of course). I knew the local TV repair guys would charge hundreds of dollars to fix this, so I decided to tackle it myself. For me it was a very easy fix and it only took 10 minutes once I figured out where "fan no. 1" was.

    1. I unplugged the TV, disconnected all my peripherals and I unscrewed and took off the back cover of the TV
    2. Looking directly at the back of the TV there are two fans, a small one to the left, and a large one to the right.
    3. I figured out that neither of these were fan no. 1 because they were spinning when I turned the TV on.
    4. Just to test, I disconnected the small fan, and tried again and this time it said check "fan no. 1 & no. 2"
    5. I reconnected fan no. 2 and looked for fan no. 1
    6. After about 10 minutes I found it, (it was on the far right side of the TV behind a circuit board.
    7. I unscrewed the circuit board and it slid right out giving me access to fan no. 1
    8. I undid the four screws holding fan no.1 in place (I really only had to undo the bottom two, as the top two aren't attached to anything connected to the TV)
    9. I followed the wire connecting fan no. 1 to its power supply and unhooked it and completely removed the fan.
    10. I throughly cleaned out the fan with a dry wash cloth as it was covered in dust, and plugged it back into its original slot and used my remote to the turn the TV on from behind it.
    11. fan no. 1 was spinning again, so I put it back in its original place, slid the circuit board back in. I turned the TV on again and saw there was no more "check fan no. 1" message so I just screwed everything back in and replaced the back cover.
    12. TV fixed, no need to pay hundreds of dollars to a tech. I didn't even have to replace the fan, but I may end up getting another one just in case it does it again.

I have a 61 inch samsung TV. A message flashed across the screen saying "check fan # 1 " then a few minutes later it shut down.

Not much to do by web, this message mean you most likely need a new fan, tv shuts down due to overheating. Contact service.

you will need to check the fans are all switching on when you turn the tv on, it might be one of the fan sensors that has gone bad, the tv wont turn on if it detects that the fans or a single fan is not working. I have not worked on this particular set , but that would be the first place i would look, if you find a fan is not firing up and if you have a multimeter, then check to see if you have a 12v voltage going to the fan, an easy way of rectifying it is to run a wire from one of the other working fans to the positive of the fan that isnt working. This would at least eliminate the fan as the culprit, if the tv starts up normally then the problem lies in why the fan is not receiving power. I ran a tv using this method for over 8 months before it died, from other problems i might add , not the fact i bypassed the fan power circuit.
