Re: Blinking Green Light to Blinking Red

The lamp could still be the issue even though it looks ok. The other possibilities are the lamp ballast (power supply for the lamp) and/or the thermal fuse. In either case I would have a technician look at it so you don't replace parts you don't need.

When I turn on the unit I get a green light, but after about 5 seconds it switches to red blinking and I do not get a screen

What is the model of TV?

The Red blinking light is a Protection Error Code. Your Tv needs repair. Most common is the power or Main Unit / Logic Board.

Post your model and how many times the light blinks. Also try unplugging for about 20 min and see if it will turn on.

Some models you get lucky and its a common problum which makes for an easier diagnosis.

for general pricing on LCD and Plasma TV parts.
