Tip & How-To about Audio Players & Recorders
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.
