I got my Samsung 50" DLP set almost two years ago, and I'm finding that the lamp (it's the old style non-LED lamp) is starting to become more and more sensitive to "high" temperatures. I put high in quotes, because it's only 72 degrees Fahrenheit in here, and my TV just shut itself down due to heat while I was reading a webpage.
Yes, I use my television as my monitor for my PC. With that much desktop real estate, I just cannot
resist. Gaming is golden on this thing!
My questions are:
- Does this behavior indicate that the lamp is about to die on me?
- Did Samsung ever make LED lamps for their earlier non-LED sets?
- Is the second question even possible?
- Where can I get a lamp that doesn't cost $DOOM?
- Will viewing pages in reverse color schemes help, or does that reflected light still affect the interior temperature, regardless of whether it hits the screen? Should i mod the TV case, to add in big, powerful fans to evacuate the excess heat? How would I get power to those? Also, is the color of the light hitting the screen representative of its temperature (is blue light "cooler" than red light)?
I love this TV, but damn, its shutting off when it gets "hot" is getting annoying, and I think getting a solution sooner rather than later is a Good Idea.
What say you, PAers? How do I solve this issue? I have gone Googling, but I'd kind of like your input. This is rather important to me, and I want to get the right
Coming here, I know I'll get it right.
