    I have the same problem and originally thought it was the lamp, but do not want to pay for a new lamp if that is not the problem. I do not have audio when my screen turns black so that is why I do not to pay for a new bulb yet.

    I too have the problem with the screen going black and also not having sound. It just started today and it recycles every 30 seconds or so.

    Could you define "very expensive"? I am just trying to figure out if I should just get a new tv or pay to get this one fixed. Thank you!

    Well, I could guess it will be in the thousands to have a repair tech install a new one. But it all depends on the base price of the L/e for your model. Your best bet, would call a repair co, tell them you need the L/E, give them the model an serial and ask for a price to install it. You tell them your lamp light is on, you have no pix and the L/E is making noise. They shouldn't even need to check it out first. This repair is a little time consuming, but can be done right in your home. If you are really handy, you may be able to get one from ebay or somewhere and replace it yourself, but unless you've done stuff like this before, I wouldn't try 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.

Power light flashed red 4 times then repeats no pic,new bulb/fan!


Check the fan that cools the bulb. It is directly behing the bulb. It should turn on when the power comes on. It apparently has a safety to protect your tv(and home). mine is in the process of going out. looking for online solutions as we speak.

Red power light and buzzing sound with red lamp light.


My Sony lost its picture and had a flashing light. Unplugging for 36 hours solved the problem.
