Bought this tv from somone who just replaced the buld but the tv went out about 2 weeks later. It goes thru the startup but then I get the red flashing light. I was told it needs a new ballast but the tv is making a clicking noise inside I looked and it is the color wheel, it is turning but making a slight noise then stops and the red light comes on. Does anybody know if this is caused by the ballast or if the color wheel goes out does the bulb not light also? I don't want to start replacing things I don't need to. Any help would be helpful

Tv goes off and on.It have alots of clicking noise sounds too?Yes.The board that call the Ballast board it is also dead too.The Ballast board only job it is to help to ignite the tv projection lamp.Tries websites like Partstore.com,Ebay.com to buy the Ballast board for the replacement.
If the red light scrolls through, you need to replace the bulb. I replaced the my own bulb, and when I tried to turn on the tv the light kept scrolling. What was wrong? I DIDNT FULLY REASSEMBLE THE TV AFTER REPLACING THE BULB.
Make sure that all the screws are put back in and it will probably work if you have replaced the bulb.
HAd the same problem with mine, but was under warrenty, they took it to the shop and had to replace the Engine if you need the specific engine name I can look it up, now the bad news if I would have had to pay it would be over a grand for the part alone.
