Tip & How-To about Audio Players & Recorders

If after replacing the lamp it did not light up.

Hi,Sometimes after replacing the lamp on their DLP or LCD people still keep getting the red lamp indicator or simply it doesn't light up.Most of the time people forget to close the door cover of the lamp area.There's a switch that's pressed when the door is full shut,if it's not pressed it will not let the tv light up for safety reasons.Another reason why it doesn't light up or keep getting the lamp indicator is because it needs to be reset it,for most tv's what works is to unplug it wait 5 min and plug it back again.For some Mitsubishi models they have a reset button you can press and that will do the work.Other brands have reset procedures like holding the menu button while pressing volume button etc.After you've done this and still doesn't light up you might be experimenting the most common failures like the ballast which is the board that powers the lamp.When the ballast is to weak to power the lamp it might light it up for some minutes and then will shut it off.The procedure and cost to replace it is easy and low in repair cost.This is something you can do your self,most instructions are on youtube.

I have an LG DLP. that turns off after 15 -30 seconds


If the second light is blinking to orange or red, that is usually the lamp indicator light on an LG DLP tv. That indicates your bulb needs replaced, or something surrounding the bulb has failed (like the cooling fan for the bulb for example) IF you have a spare bulb handy, I'd replace the bulb, keeping in mind if you touch any part of a new bulb with your bare hands, you just cut the life of the bulb by more then half.

Laptop keeps shutting off. DV1490US. There is power in the case but not in the screen. I press the on button fo a while until all the lights go off inthe laptop and repress the same button. Sometimes light comes on the screen sometimes lights onlaptop lit up but nothing on the screen. Can hear fan working and all all the time. I keep repeating the process. If it works, laptopstays on for a while somestimes.


If you hear the hard drive spinning and you think Windows is working but you can't see an image then :-
You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp or simply the video cable needs reseating. After reseating the video cable and the problem is still there then :-
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display or appear black.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
