The ballast is actually a switch mode power supply that powers the lamp. It is an
integral part of the light engine and is not replaceable. The light engine has a price
tag of $950. If you replaced the lamp with an after market one and not the Toshiba
lamp you can experience the same problem. Some of the after market lamps will
not fire at the same voltage as the Toshiba. The blue led will come on solid and the
yellow blinking. It will try to start 8 times then give up.

How do i determine if my ballast board or capacitor is bad in my toshiba hd tv model no 57HM167?


The chances of the ballast failing are small on this model. Count how many times the Yellow light flashes before it pauses. Then google 57HM167 and the amount of blinks. ie " 57HM167 Yellow light flashes 3 times" That will tell you what you need to know. You can also post it here and we can help. I suspect you have a stuck fan(the fans are monitored to see if they are spinning. If not, they will not allow the TV to start up). Or you have the cover for the lamp not installed all the way. There is a switch that the lamp cover activates and the the TV will not turn on without it secured.

KF42WE610 bad lamp... and ballast?


Hi,
DLP Lamp has electrodes inside and ballast generates high voltage that makes spark on these electrodes thus got high bright light. New lamp wont die due to bad ballast so replace lamp and see tv works or not.
This tv has self diagnostic feature, turn On tv and let it shut down, now check standby light that would be blinking in specific order, for example 3 or 4 times blink then pause for 3 seconds and again blinks.
Let me know how many times standby light blinking in this tv to help you with more info.
Thanks.

Service man says light engine. how much? jvc model hd52g886


Whites are yellow can be a convergence or color balance problem, and lamp going out could also be a bad ballast board, black spots are usually light engine, could be a different fault on DMD board.

The fact is that when you get all this symptom together unavoidably you have a faulty light engine.

The light engine is the most expensive part to replace, its price for this model is always over $1600 ( I know, keep the heart tablets at hand).

Here is the part for your model: TS-COP7A-SAA-R

Turning off


Three blinking lights indicates a lamp problem.  This can be from A) a bad lamp, B) bad ballast C) bad Light Engine/DMD Board.  Try replacing the bulb first.  As with any lamps, it has a limited life.  If that doesn't work, you can try the ballast next.  If that doesn't work, it's time to take it in to a certified repair center for diagnostics.  Here is a page from the service manual on the three blinking lights.
