If you do a search on google about Samsung DLP shuts down after such and such, you will see a kazillion threads open asking why. DLP's and especially Samsung's are notorious for issues like this and others. Many different parts could cause this issue. It could be a bad lamp ballast, color wheel, analog board, or light engine! Other than the lamp ballast, all are quite expensive. Try AVS, or look at smoe of the many boards that Samdung tech reply at. But I assume if you want it fixed, it will need to be looked at by a repair shop or you may be doing the shotgun approach and more costly in the end. And who knows how long that will last before another issue pops up.

IMO, if it is not a simple fix, look at other options.. You can get a brand new 42'' plasma for around $450 and a LG 50'' for $599..


Just my :2cents.
