Samsung TV

dmarie1960,

I'm sorry to hear that you're having this issue.

The fan may need to be replaced, and you may want to have the unit inspected by a service technician. Unfortunately, I can't assist with home repairs, but if you're interested in having it looked at, you can call 800-SAMSUNG or fill out the online service request form here:

Apologies...but, question...

I took the back off of my 52a650 lcd and i used a ceramic heater and pointed it in the area where the A/V cables go. the metal cover has holes in it, so the heat went through. In 2 mins, it came on. the skys part and angels sing!!
background- i replaced the power board, and the original didnt have bad caps. it did the same, clicking, not turning on.
I did notice it took much longer when I had the windows open to take in the fall air.
so, my question is, is there a temp sensor, or something along these lines I can replace that would correct this issue, or am I just getting lucky?
it just would make sense if it was a bad temp sensor. i just dont see anything on a parts website in regards to a temp sensor to replace. Guess this is why these issues are above my pay grade.
thank you..jm

agsinstallations,

No apologies necessary. Happy

There is a temperature sensor that shuts down the TV if it gets too warm, or if there's not enough ventilation. It's set lower than when any damage would begin, but it is set.

I'd recommend if you're having a heat issue that powers down the TV, you should consider having an expert check it out. The part may require a technician to order it.
