Re: Replaced lamp on 50 inch Samsung still turns off

Have you cleaned the inside of your TV? Is it still filled with dust? If so then I would start there, you see many parts tend to overheat when there is a lot of dust. so when the sensors on the TV detect an excessive temperature reading, it will shut the TV off automatically (for safety reasons).

Re: DLP buzzibg (humming)

That sounds like your speakers are starting to kick the bucket. The ballast is unaffected buy the remote since it’s the board that regulates power to the lamp.
Try increasing the volume on the tv, if the buzzing gets louder, then its definitely the speakers.
