It is not a good idea for electronic products to be in storage for long periods of time. It is even a more poor idea to purchase used from a rental center; the result is more often than not a very bad experience.

With no picture, but working sound, it is a loss of the high voltage system. This is almost always failure of the high voltage autotransformer called the flyback and/or the HOT (horizontal output transistor) - which work together in producing the horizontal scan of the raster system and the high voltage to prduce the raster upon which the video picture is modulated.

The failure could very well be from HIGH temperature involved with the storage of the tv set.

The repair costs will be over $150 but not more than $300; depending on the exact parts that need replaced.

But: try the hard reset and the vibration/whacking test first to see if the moving business caused failures.

Hard Reset: Unplug for 4 hours, then try again. Do it twice.

Mitsubishi wd-52825. red lamp indicator, new lamp installed


Failed caps on the power supply will cause that. The V26 Power pwb repair kit will usually correct that issue. Its available from www.tvrepairworld.com the kit contains the capacitors and the CD with instructions.

Samsung HLP4674W - changed bulb - still no picture - lights flash


If the lamp has been replaced I would think the Lamp ballast would be most likliest followed by the color wheel and then the Digital board. You can get any part needed for your model at www.tvrepairworld.com just leave them a email they respond quickly.

Tv won't turn on red lights blinking


You are hearing the spark gap mounted on the lamp ballast board. If you can hear that sound, that means everything in the lamp driver circuit is working except the lamp!

Get a new lamp.

TV doesn't turn on


You really should give make & model number when posting, it helps us immensely, your lamp and possibly the ballast is bad, start with a new lamp first, odds are very good that it will fix your problem, can`t help more without manufacturer and model number, good luck, ps, order the original lamp, generics are junk and a waste of your money.
