Question about Akai PT4298HD Rear Projection Television

My TV doesn't show the image/picture

I believe somebody just had the same problem. For some reason my TV suddenly stopped showing picture. When I switch on the TV, small red light blinks for few secs and then stops thats all. I went to Circuit City and asked what could cause the problem and one of the salesman told me the projection bulb must have been burnt. Can somebody help me in resolving this. I would like to find out how much would be the cost to fix it or if it is fixable at all. (Akai PT 4298HD, usage 2.5 years ; bought in Circuit City)

My Sony KP-46WT500 screen shows the tv image in blue only for a few seconds, then it goes completely blank (as if it were off). Do I need to replace the bulbs?

It is rear projection TV that use 3 picture tubes of red-green-blue to show color picture on tv front screen.
Do you see standby red light blinking when TV shuts off after showing blue image for a while?
If red standby light is blinking, please count it how many times it blinks, there would be 3 seconds pause between blinks so count pause to pause and post it here to find out possible solution.

My picture won't show after replacing the lamp

Actually that humming sound was not the lamp, the humming sounds come from color wheels when they're going out, and since the color wheel is part of the light engine system and it's not working, that's why you don't have an image, you'll probably ask your self why, since it's not the lamp.. the thing is that the light engine system is componed by lamp, ballast, color wheel and dmd board, so when one of these doesn't work, there will be no image reflected, because they work together

Cracked screen and down screen

If the double images are located at the bottom on one side, you might have cracked the mirror inside the set and it has been displaced making the picture in that area bad (especially if the rest of the picture is OK)
