pepperj: "it puts the tape on the switch thin or else it gets the hose again"
SuperOnligee: how's the witness protection plan going?
oscar cabrera: the voice tho so deep
John Falvey: I think the owners were locked in the closet, you can hear them trying to
kick the door open.
Iain Macfarlane: Once you have put the tv in the deep dark dungeon in the basement, "now put
the lotion in the basket, put the lotion in the basket"...I must have slept
through this part of Silence of the Lambs
Jason Rodda: why the dodgy voice ??? seriously like its stupid
Richard DiTore: I tried this with the switch down but it still shuts off by itself. Ugh! I
taped the switch in the down position. someone else said they positioned
the switch up. Maybe I'll try that next.
George Griffing: This is one SCARY video. Why is it so dark why the gloves; why does he
mask his voice; why does he tell us to unplug the tv after we have already
electrocuted ourselves? BTW: I called Samsung and they politely told me to
go to Hell. I tried the tape the switch down trick and my tv has stayed on
now for 6 hours. One variation, however, I did the job in the light
without gloves and used Duct tape. BTW2: I think Dave has a future in
making scary Youtubes - maybe something about visiting the Samsung
headquarters at night with gloves on voice masked and throwing a switch
causing the entire corporation to be transported North to Pyongyang ....
lued vic: This fixed my TV, I thought it was the bulb going bad. However, the blue
switch needs to pointing UP, not down.
I still don't get why the need for the disguised voice and why your hand in
a latex glove...what are you trying to hide? lol jk
ele rich: Whats wrong with your voice dude!but thanks for the help
Mark Bernhardt: This did it! I bought a new bulb for nothing! Well, at least I have a spare
now! Thank you!!!!!!
ratvespa: or if you want to avoid doing it ghetto with electrical tape, you could
unplug the small plug going to the switch, either jump the wires together
at the plug, or cut and solder the wires together.
WizardsMachine: I was gonna throw out my TV. You saved me at least a grand. Thanks. It so
nice that the CIA produces these Public Service Announcements.
M Young: is that john from delocated
trips2uranus: "and then you open the vent to expose the body you have mutilated". Thanks
for the vid. No one it going to get you, you don't have to go through all
Kurt Hagemeister: Awesome video. This fixed the problem immediately. My TV is 7 years old,
and I thought it was the bulb going bad. But, this switch seemed to be the
main issue. The video should make it clear though that the switch needs to
be in the UP position as you're looking at it from the back. I love the
weird disguised voice too - it adds a unique flair to the video.
Christy Love Turner: Your a dork..shut up
clicheskates1: Never seen a more suspiciously fixed tv ever
Eddie C: the video won't play! Agrrrr!
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
Robert Drake: Here's the crow bar...
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.
edmedina21: I had problem spoke to repair shop. Make sure cover is tightly fastened and
secure. My Samsung DLP no longer turns offf.
Jeremy Miner: Satan, is that you?
angel esparza: nice of you to say to unplug the tv at the end of the video ;)
MrJmr1974: DUDE!!!! your horror movie material...from squeaky to spooky puberty ain't
mike scully: Is this Barry white ?
Evan Tipton: not gonna lie... voice was kinda strange BUT... this totally fixed my
problem!!! THANK YOU!!!
Steve Mathews: YOU ROCK MAN! Worked like a charm on my Samsung HL-P6163W. THANK YOU!!
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!)
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.
Oscar Oxford: Awesome! Thank you so much! Mister y Man!
Scoony Marshall: Thanks for the upload! This actually worked!

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.
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
meatwad316: this really helped out thank 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). Thank you!
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!!
Nick Sampson: Didn't work for me. Tried taping the switch both up and down still no luck.
Any ideas anyone?
Andrew Aikins: Do you tape the switch up or down?
Dyrell Frierson: thank you for this video. my tv was starting to drive me crazy. easy fix.
thank you again.
