    Default Redneck TV Cooling

    I have an 8 year old 82in Samsung DLP rear projection TV. I have recently ran into the problem with it overheating, and called Samsung. They told me that I need to pay 600 dollars for 1 fan, and pay for an electronic repairman to come fix it. Well, me being a redneck, I came to conclusion of a redneck cooling. No liquid, or any other nonsense. I popped it open, and located the main 3 fans. They all run. So then I found an old window fan, and am thinking this will cool it down. It starts up, runs for about 5 seconds, then turns of, and the overheating LED comes on, and is blinking. Would my "redneck" way work? If not, is there any other ideas, to help keep my bitch cold?
    PS: I will upload photos if you need to see what you are working with.

    I'm Innovating before I do anything, to see if it's worth it.

    its probally not the fact that its over heating, but you have bad sensores. putting in a different kinda fan not made for the tv will result in the same problem. find where the sensors are and remove them then your old fans should run continously.
