Question about Sony KP-51WS500 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Turns Off By Itself

Sometimes, our tv will flash red and then the screen goes black but the volume is still on for another minute or so and then it turns off completely. If we leave it off for 5 minutes or so then it is fine again. It doesn't happen every day yet but is getting more often. We had the red bulb changed about 6 months ago. Any ideas? Thank you.

Mitsubishi big screet HDTV after being on for a minute, the scree pops and goes black with some red lines, then the volume turns all the way up by itself.

Do the self check----if set has been unplugged plug it in and turn on for it to fail----when it shuts off ON THE FRONT OF THE SET press and hold both the menu and input (device) buttons at same time for at least 5 seconds and release both.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like, 1 blink, 2 blinks and pause and repeat it for a total of 5 times.

What if any error code do you find?

Samsung HLP4674W - changed bulb - still no picture - lights flash

If the lamp has been replaced I would think the Lamp ballast would be most likliest followed by the color wheel and then the Digital board. You can get any part needed for your model at just leave them a email they respond quickly.

New Sharp Aquos LC37X20E. After 30 mins turns itself off to standby and comes back on after 2-5mins (even though the automatic return to stanby has been set to "disable"). Eventually after...

According to Sharp it is a software problem. Engineer came, installed software update ,10 minute job.....TV worked fine for 1/2 day unfortunately: Then images turned black and white in all channels TV turned itself off, and stanby and OPC buttons started flashing. When TV came back on its own 10 mins later , screen had 2 large square staines superimposed in image (as if it was a burnt screen)...Engineer will be back next week...all quite sad really for a new TV.....will keep u posted
