Green light flashes for about a minute, fan does not turn on and there is no picture or sound.

unplug all cords and cables from tv, then unplug tv, wait about 5 min, plug tv back in this resets, the "brain" if samething ....see if your bulb is glowing, or tv is hot to touch...always clean the breather slots or holes so fan can push or pull cool air..most of these tvs have a auto shut off for safety if fan has faulted might just have a DONE fan unit.

No power,no lights nothing!!

Hi,did you close the door cover?Make sure itsproperly shut other wise it won't tv light up. Reset the lamp
timer? you can do this by unpluging the set for 5 min
and plug it back(works for most sets). Was the fan
running ok? You can clean it w an air pressure
can. If you heard clicking or like wanting to turn on the problem could be with the board that powers the lamp.The board it's called the ballast.If its not able
to provide the power to the lamp it will not turn it on
and the red light will blink.

52 inch projection screen will not power up

Look for poor solder connections on the 4 bridge rectifier diodes. Looking from the back they to the right corner. Common problem.

Pull out the plug for the TV and leave it out for one hour at least.  Plug it back in and it should be ok.  It will re set itself.
