Hard time turning tv on and once on, will turn off after a period of time
It usually takes 3 trys or more to turn the tv on. Each try the green light will flash for a while and then the red light blinks and the red lamp light will blink about every 4th time. Then when the tv turns on it will turn off again anywhere from immediately to a few hours of use at which time the red light blinks again along with the red lamp light.
I seem to have an easiere time turning it on when it is warmer in the room. When I get home I turn the air on, so it's warm when I first get home.
I tried switching out lamps. I had the lamp I took out when the "change lamp" light came on a year ago but get the same result.
The tv worked fine before I moved but had it shipped in our last move and wonder if something go jarred loose.

Re: Hard time turning tv on and once on, will turn off...
Sounds like it may have been jarred or theres a larger tall capacitor in the power supply that goes bad in these sets alot. Its not something a layman should attemt. As a matter of fact the only thing in this set that is user replaceable, is the lamp. Sorry but your going to need the service manual and soecialized tools tom trouble shoot this set. you really should seek out a pro for this repair.

I can help you if you tell me brand and model number of this set--I already have a good idea as to what may be wrong--it started slow--you had to turn it on several times at first to get on and once on it was ok?
try safemode hold down the power button while the console is in standby. the light will go from red to green.it will beep once flash green beep again, and then beep a third time. after the third beep the light will turn red.
once the light is red, take your finger off the power button and place it back on the power button. the light will go from red to green, beep once flash and then beep twice quickly. after it does the double beep, take your finge roff. the light will stay green and you'll get a screen asking you to connect the controller.
after connecting the controller, try option 3, or whichever option is restore filing system. this can possibly correct media loading and will 95% of the time fix the console when it freezes before loading up your icons(the xmb)
Ok do not worry this may mean two things crached hard drive or a corrupted hard drive all you have to do is turn it on but let the red ligth be on turn it on do not remove your finger from the button until it go's off again turn it on again keep your finger until it makes a sound but still do not remover your finger untill it makes two sounds after eachouther take your finger of fast nou a screen will apear say restore sestem untill your ps3 works again it take 1-6 trys and if nothing happens you must format it.HOPE I WAS USEFULL PLZZ RATE ME AND IF THERE IS ANYTHING ELS EMAIL ME TO firstname.lastname@example.org I DO PS1,2,3,DVD PLAYERS AND PC sorry for my spelling i am only 13 and i amafrikaans BUT PLZZZ RATE ME . . . plzz thns
