Question about LG RU52SZ30 52" Television

Shutting off and on...

My TV, 3 years old which had lamp replaced about 2 years ago started to act weird. Couple of weeks ago out of nowhere it shut itself off, no picture, no sound red and green lights off. 15 minutes later it turns on by itself... after 2-3 hours of working it did it again. After couple of days the intervals changed, it got worse. At first when I turn it on, it stays on for about an hour, shuts off for 10-15 minutes, comes back on, stays on 25-35 minutes, shuts off for 10-15 and it keeps doing it all the time-25-35 minutes on-10-15 off... I called service people under the extended warranty, they said over the phone that it was the lamp and it is not covered so they want to change the lamp even though I know last time when it was the lamp TV was turning blue and it wasn't shutting off completely, just the picture... Can you help, please...

    I did exactly what you suggested, resoldered all the connections in the first part of the board, but there is no change in behavior. What else could it be?

The problem may be due to dry soldering in the power supply stage if it was with the lamp there would be red or green light showing the presence of the power to the tv after making it own some of the components get hot and it will make the the soldering point conectionless and after some time the heat sink get cooled and the soldering point gets connected and u will see the picture again it is a simple problem if u have a soldering iron u make it hot and re solder all the components in the first part of the circuit board and the problem if rectified

I have a 2 year old Sony Bravia KDS 50A3000 rear projection TV. We replaced the bulb about 2 months ago and now all of a sudden the bulb will go off and we loose the picture for 35 seconds, nothing happens...


well if you replace the lamp 2 months ago this could be a ballast issue go to your back of the TV and if you ear a weird mechanical noises like a tick,tick when you are down there this is the ballast.

The TV started turning itself off occasionally a


Most likley what it could be is an interferance in the TV. Modern TV's have a feature that will shut itself off when it is not receving a picture. For instance, after so many minutes of "snow" it will shut off.sometimes this can make the TV think there is no signal at shut itself off.Anyway, I suspect its an interferance issue. Perhaps moving the TV further from the source of the interferance might help.

TV shuts itself off after a couple minutes of being on.


One must be very careful of the quality of the replacement lamp. Many of the cheap 'deals' on the web for replacement lamps are substandard. I always recommend that replacement bulbs be the original manufacturers bulb.

TV on/off


How long is your TV on before it turns off? Check the fans and make sure they are all working. The TV may be shutting off due to overheating if a fan quit working.

If you think the lamp is still good maybe try replacing the lamp ballast.

Tv turns off


Its the lamp that needs replacing. It will run for a couple of seconds and then it would dim or turn off.

My TV pictures turns black afetr a few hours but I still can hear sound perfectly!!!


It sounds like your rptv lamp is going out. If this is an older DLP this is most likely the cause. You can get a replacement at www.laptopsforless.com part number BP96-00224J for $151. If the tv is still under warranty, I would have them do it, otherwise replace it yourself. If so here is a link to give you step by step instruction. Please give me a good rating. ;-)
