Won't turn on! No green light to show that it has turned on.


look for a tiny hole in the button panel. It may or not be marked reset. Straighten out a paper clip and push it in the hole slowly until you feel it stop. Gently push it to reset the TV. If that doesn't work, then look at the lamp cover door to see if it is closed all the way. The switch may be bad too.

Bought this TV used and was told it needed a ballast board. I spoke with the tech that worked on it and was told a supply board as well as possibly needing a new bulb. I've replaced all three with no...


Sir when replacing the bulb you should reset the lamp hour meter. 1. while on the standby mode press "mute" then the numbers 1,8 and 2 in succession, and press the power button.
2. wait until "loading factory" appears on your screen and the service menu is displayed with the lamp life hours. You will see a list of service options.
3. Scroll down to "option" and press "enter". next you will see "reset lamp" where you will press again the "enter" button. good day and best regards.

    Sony KDFE60A20 TV turns off and on with Red light blinking 5 times


    Same problem here. 5 blinks is video related. I've been told to clean the screen by the lamp, as they could be clogged and causing it to over heat. Going to give thet a try first. I'll post what happens...

    Lamp out maybe


    my tv did the same thing and since I was getting it to work most of the time I didn't do anything until the lamp went out alltogether. If you also get a warning that your lamp needs to be replaced, you better get one. You can get them pretty cheap on EBay and on the web if you google them. Approx. $140 if you search maybe less. From Panasonic it is over $550. It was easy to replace but still cant get the lamp timer meter to reset in mine. Good luck with itl.

    Aquos LC37D40U Blinking light and won't turn on


    The power light is an error code that tells me exactly what is wrong with the TV. Count how many times the POWER led flashes per second? (Dont worry about the OPC led)

    1x per second (constant steady blink) = bad inverters/lamps
    2x per second = bad power supply
    3x per second = bad main board

    If its 1x per second, try doing the factory initialization to get the TV back on to confirm a bad lamp/inverter.

    Try doing the Factory Initialization (WARNING: THIS GIVES YOU ACCESS TO THE SERVICE MENU. DO NOT ADJUST ANYTHING IN THE SERVICE MENU OTHER THAN WHAT I PROVIDE YOU IN THESE INSTRUCTIONS. IF YOU DECIDED TO ADJUST ANYTHING OTHER THAN WHAT I PROVIDE YOU IN THESE INSTRUCTIONS, I WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE IF ANYTHING WRONG HAPPENS TO YOUR TV.)

    1. unplug tv
    2. press and hold at the same time “Vol –“ and “input” button on the TV set.
    3. while holding those buttons, plug the tv back in
    4. the tv should turn on by itself, keep holding the buttons until the letter “K” appears. Then let go.
    Once the TV turns on, take a look at the screen. Does it flicker then shut off? Or do you hear a buzzing noise from the right edge of the TV? If so, then you have bad inverters or lamps. Once youre done, unplug the tv to get it out of the service menu.

    If it is 2x per second or 3x per second, then those boards are just bad and they need to be replaced. There isnt anything you can do right now to fix it.

    TV WONT TURN ON. BLUE LIGHT GOES ON THEN THE TWO RED LIGHTS BLINK IT HAD BEEN WORKING THEN ONE DAY IT JUST WONT TURN ON.


    I'm going throught the exact same thing right now. After the lights quit blinking, and the blue light goes off, does the red lamp light stay on. This usually means your lamp has gone bad ($200.00 plus). But when I ordered the lamp, it did the same thing. Had to have the certified hitachi repair man come out for the and told me it had to be a bad lamp, so I ordered a 2nd one with the same result. He came out again and had to take the TV away, later telling me the ballast must have blown when the original lamp went bad. Another $200.00 part. I haven't fought this one with Hitachi yet but am going to try. The ballast shouldn'e go just because the lamp goes out. The set is only 21/2 years old and I've already had to spend about $700.00 on the light enging replacement and now this lamp and ballast expense. Love the TV but would expect a lot less problems from a $2500.00 top model Hitachi. I'm going to see if they feel the same way, hopefully not but I'm not real optimistic they will care. Hope this helps.
