matter0ni: it worked. thanks mystery burgler man! i was about to buy a whole new bulb... thank god i came across your video first. excellent. what is that switch's purpose btw? and why does it eventually need to be 'corrected'? is it a fail safe? is it detecting somethign wrong and by doing this perhaps shortening the TV's life?? just curious

clara17uk: this guy burgled the house just for the tv lamp? were the houselights also in the same state as the tv bulb
mike scully: Is this Barry white ?
Stan Doris: After watching this video, I was able to fix my Samsung DLP. The tv kept turning off on it's own and after replacing the bulb today, the tv wouldn't turn on. After putting electrical tape on the switch to keep it up, the tv came on with no problem and it didn't turn off. Thanks for posting this video. :)
edmedina21: I had problem spoke to repair shop. Make sure cover is tightly fastened and secure. My Samsung DLP no longer turns offf.
Aztec MC: I have the exact same tv. it turns off & red light blinks... it's not the switch, bulb, or wheel.
Any ideas? I had a quote at a repair shop for $350, but that's the price of a new TV.
Scoony Marshall: Thanks for the upload! This actually worked!
forcebwitya: Just saw this, haven't tried it yet, but thank god... I thought it was a bigger problem
CharlieCheapshot: Probably overheat protection. Try cleaning/blowing off the components, especially the fans, heatsinks and vents. compressed air, either can or compressor works well and wear some rubber or latex gloves to avoid static from damaging any components.
Goon1399: Thank you...my tv hasn't shut off on it's own since i tried this
fmcilvenny: Awesome. Finally a real solution!
Don Spardco: This is an actual Best Buy Repair technique, folks.
Love this vid! davedahbah, I checked my last ext warranty service call and there was 'fix switch' some $360 charge from Best Buy repair. Opened the back and there was small piece of tape. It was loose so I reseated the switch with new tape.
Hmm, no joy in Mudville for us. It's more than just the switch.
So, on to looking at bulbs, I guess. Thanks for the vid.
Traci Currier: OMG I could hug and kiss you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My husband changed the DLP Chip and we could NOT figure out why the TV kept shutting off...found your video and PRESTO!!!! Our TV is fixed AND No more dots...I'm with the rest of you guys Long Live The Internet!!! Wooop!
John Homs: Thank you, Dave!!! This is a great service...completely fixed my problem and saved me so much money and the humiliation of getting ripped off! Long live the Internet! (And, Davedabah!)
eurone215: I did this and it fixed the problem. On another note there is a reward for this undercover Samsung Employee.It's funny how you can plug an old ass floor model and those Tv's will still work, There is nothing but cutting corners and saving a buck to make pure junk.
GrnEyedBandit77: It rubs the lotion on it's skin, it does this whenever it's told.......
It rubs the lotion on it's skin or else it gets the hose again!!
Now it places the lotion in the basket.....
Evan Tipton: not gonna lie... voice was kinda strange BUT... this totally fixed my problem!!! THANK YOU!!!
Eddie C: the video won't play! Agrrrr!
tmharr34: Thank! Freddy Krueger...and pay your light bill.
angel esparza: nice of you to say to unplug the tv at the end of the video ;)
Jeremy Miner: Satan, is that you?
toekneearmass: Likewise - very grateful for this terrific advice.
FWIW, I took a lighter to the plastic arm of the switch to make a bit of a hook, then used a rubber band to hold it in place (wrapped the other end around the top white screw-post holding the cable connector in place that you can see from about 1:13 to 1:36).
sundanceranch1: Thank You so much!! We just fixed our TV. My husband couldn't believe I found this on youtube. He didn't want to try it so I did. Awesome!!
MrJmr1974: DUDE!!!! your horror movie material...from squeaky to spooky puberty ain't no joke!
