My Samsung TV turns on, and then automatically turns off after about 30 seconds. Once it turns off the Standbye, Lamp, and Timer light all blink.
IHTS Reply: Andy, I would start by replacing the lamp as that is the easiest and most common failure. If the set still shuts down we would replace the ballast and possibly the power supply if necessary. Both the ballast and power supply have been improved for increased reliability so even if they are not defective it would be a good idea to upgrade to the latest version.
