I forgot to mention that this problem is intermittent. I have watched for days and on some days 6 hours straight without issues, and sometimes/somedays it just happens.
I have a Samsung HLN617W DLP TV that started to automatically shut off on its own. When that happens, the 3 led lights timer/lamp/temp show solid green/green/red and stay that way. I cannot then turn the TV back on.
Of note too is that when it turns off, and the leds are on, the fans in the back are actually working and some small green led inside is also on.
I have been able in the past to unplug the TV from the AC outlet and plug it into a different outlet to resolve, but last night, even that didn't work until I tried it many times (over 6 or 7 times into different AC outlets). When that didin't work last night, and I unplugged it it obviously turned off everything, but then plugging the TV to the AC outlet only brought back the same symptoms (leds and fan in the back without being able to turn the TV on).
The lamp is about 1 year old.
I have not tried the following yet, but wanted to know if this is something common:
- clean dust inside, but it looks clean anyhow.
- remove the lamp and reinstall it.
- open the lamp door and close it to make sure the sensor is fine.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
