Flashing yellow lamp light

I unplugged my tv while it was on and when i plugged in back in the lamp light started flashing. It has done this before but turned back on in 5 or 10 min and now it will not. i got a hold of a new lamp and it does the same thing. so its not the lamp. any ideas would be great.

I think your problem is actually simple enough, but may require proffessional service, depending on your fundamental skills with electronics. It sounds most likely that your power supply is bad. This would explain why this happens at the begginning and not later on. You see, once the transisters are warmed up, it is not so demanding on thepower supply. You may want to have it proffessionaly done, which may cost about 300-400 dollars. This is a good tv set, so it may be worth it to you, but I would suggest you look around at replacement costs and determine if you want to gamble with it. Good luck.

SOURCE: Replace Light Engine

I have the 62HM95 and my light engine went out between 2 and 3 years. I will never buy a Toshiba again. I have had nothing but trouble with the components and the customer support. I am in a class action lawsuit with them, but I doubt very much will come of it.

As far as fixing your TV I was in the same delimma as you. I wasn't willing to pay nearly $1000 to get this set repaired when it already cost $3000 and it started having problems within the year and major issues after 2-3 years. I was willing to risk a couple hundred bucks that I could fix it myself. If you aren't very handy with taking things apart and putting them back together, by all means don't do this. It is pretty easy to do and you can figure it out as you go, but I wouldn't suggest you doing this if you weren't willing to take the risk of really messing it up.

I didn't go to Part Store.com because they wanted $456 and then when I finally decided to do it they raised the price to $556...No way, I found http://www.tristatemodule.com/html/light_engines.html and you can get a light engine that is refurbished for $250, or you can have your light engine refurbished for $200, which is what I plan to do if this one fails in the next two years. I looked at their site and it doesn't show that they have any in stock, but they may if you call. I wasn't comfortable sending mine off to be refurbished because I wasn't sure if I would remember how to put it back together, and I'm glad I didn't because the one they sent me didn't work, which sucks, but it happens. I called them back and sent it back to them and it worked fine. All in all, I had no instructions or any other help besides my memory of how I disassembled it and it only took me an hour at the most, not really too hard.

The only other issue I had with them and it really wasn't with them as much as Toshiba is, I received a light engine for a 46" model, which when I talked to Toshiba they swore up and down that it wouldn't work, when I talked to TriState about it they said that Toshiba would say that and they had used it in 1,000's of 62" models and it's worked fine. After they replaced the broken one they sent originally, the new one worked fine and is still working brilliantly and I have my original 62" light engine to get refurbished if anything should happen again. Their shipping time was good and when I returned the product to them, I received a working part pretty quickly.

For $250, this would be the only way I would go. If this hadn't worked, I probably would have just went out and got a different TV. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: TV turns off and power light blinks unpluged andd still does it.

Likely to be the STK convergence chips causing a protection circuit to switch the TV off. Have you got any onscreen convergence problems (i.e, colour fringes)?

Wd-60737 mitsubishi blinking yellow status light ?


Mitsubishi TV troubleshooting
Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.
For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.
Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:
12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filter cover is open.
34 = Lamp abnormality
36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 = Lamp Temperature High
39 = DMD Temperature High
41 = Short is detected
44 = DVI cable between FMT and Engine disconnected

Sony Bravia KDL-55EX500 flashing green and yellow light, an won't turn on. Any suggestions?


you guys are going to love me. lol. i figured it out at least for mine. $ )
1.start by unplugging the tv and everything plugged into it(make sure the only thing plugged into the tv is the power cord).
2. next plug in the usb flash drive with the update or a compatible version of the firmware.


3. now while holding down the up arrow button on the tv remote, plug in the tv and keep holding the up arrow while pressing and holding the power button on the side on the tv until you see the light on the tv go from solid green to solid red and yellow flashing lights. once you see this just sit back and wait a few min for it to force the update and it should turn on when its done.



let me know if this works for you as well or if you need any clarification. also know that step three is a pain to do alone and must be all done within a short period of time preferably at the same time.

A continuous flashing red light with the word LAMP on it would definitely mean you're going to need to spend a few bucks on a new lamp....or for a few more, upgrade to a TV from this century that doesn't require lamp changes :)

Tv will not turn on. lamp light is flashing 3 times. i put a new lamp in it and have the same problem


The boot data is corrupted. Download the firmware update from Toshiba and unzip the files and folders,copy the unzipped files & folders to a SD card (like a camera uses). Unplug the tv and insert the card into the slot hidden behind the cover above the HDMI inputs. Plug in the tv and watch the yellow blinking stop and a solid blue will light when done. Unplug the tv, remove the card,plug in the tv and all will be good. You could now install the update per it's instructions.

Lamp went out on DLP TV


Did you replace the lamp door? A flashing red light is an indication of a door open or an impropely seated lamp. Try removing the lamp and reseating it. Reinstall the door and try turning it on again. Also, you may want to unplug the TV from the power source, count to about 20 and then plug it back up again. This may reset the TV.
Good luck

3 LEDs in the front blinking.

Unplug the set, pull out the lamp module (not all the way - leave it on the track) and push it back in.

Power issues (Tv not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.
