um... not sure if this is the right place

but heres my problem

my tv (a Samsung DLP) keeps randomly shutting off after several hours randomly at different intervals.

I've asked around and here are what most people are saying

1.) My bulb fan is dead and my TV is overheating
I've felt the back of my TV after it turns off. and it is not hot just slightly warm

2.) Someone around my house owns a UNIVERSAL REMOTE
Seems likely. One of my neighbors just recently picked up a new Plasma. which about the time this problem started. But it isn't Samsung... (Vizio or Sony. cant remember)

This is really annoying because i'll be playing halo on Xbox live and it will shut off randomly causing me to die. (kills my stats)

Please help!

oh i've owned my TV for roughly 1.5 years.

I would say that your television IS overheating.
Because you won't feel the heat one the back of the TV, you will feel it on the actual bulb.
Usually; the fans are working; but they aren't circulating the air well enough.

What most people do to problems like these to get rid of them; are to install regular PC fans into the TV
