Question about LG RU-44SZ61 44" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

5 Answers

Lg-ru44sz63d The TV begins to start up the light goes from red to yellow and flashes several times before shutting down. There are no wierd noises, the TV sounds like its starting up but just does not do it. After five to seven attempts to start it will start and run fine for as long as it is on. The next time you start the TV it may work fine or not start, very inconsistent. Help please. (it is a 44 inch DLP rear projection set.)

Re: lg-ru44sz63d

I have been having the same issue with mine. After reading this solution, I tried just this... I pulled out the bulb holder (with bulb) and shook it. Once I put it back in it worked. My LG is not quite 3 years old but I first had this issue about 7 months in with increased frequency of the problem.

Re: lg-ru44sz63d

I just had the same problem with mine. I figured the bulb was getting old. I was understandably reluctant to drop $200 for a new bulb, so just to be sure, I unplugged it and replugged it and it was back to normal. Hope your solution is that simple.

Have you ever replaced the lamp in it? It sounds like a lamp that is on its way out. Sometimes taking the lamp out and shaking it a bit will fix it temporarily as it redistributes the mecury in it.

I have read another solution which may indicate the light engine has failed and will likely need replacing. The cost is quite expensive. $1500 range and apparently the part is no longer available from LG. Best you might do is get an estimate to repair just to be sure.

No picture-lg ru-52sz51d

Depending on what light is flashing it could be a few things. If the Lamp light (the middle one) is flashing that is problem with or around the lamp. That orange or amber light is an indication that the lamp is reaching the end of its life

If it is the Temperature light (the far right one) then the TV is shutting down because it is over heating and you need to check the cooling fan.
