Re: Status indicator blinks RED, not starting.
There are different rates at which the status light will blink to indicate various errors.
See manual (link below) page 49

It sounds like your lamp may need replacing. Before you go that route try all of these:
-Make sure the lamp cover on the bottom is fully attached.
-If you unplug the power cord while the fan is rotating, the lamp may not turn on about 1 minute when
you plug the power cord next time. After the status indicator stops blinking press the power button to turn it back on. May have to press it multiple times.
-If your Power Light continues to blink red/green then you should contact your dealer.
Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
Red and Green bliking with no picture means a service problem. But you might try cleaning the filters first and being sure that nothing is blocking air flow through the projector. Red status solid means replace the lamp, but that doesn't seem to be the indication.
If it shuts off and then the power light starts blinking red or it never comes on but the power light just blinks red continuously that is usually indicative of the convergence ICs (STK 392-110). You never want to replace the ICs without also replacing the resistors that are associated with them. There are usually 6 resistors, one for each of the colors and there corresponding direction, IE Red horizontal, red vertical, blue horizontal, ect. In the case of this model tv all of the resistors are 2.2 Ohm and 2watts. You will find them right where the STK 392-110 ICs are. Right in front of them. They are blue and have this color code on them. Red, red, gold, gold. These are represented by stripes on the resistors. You can get the parts from www.bdent.com They carry the ICs and the resistors. If you do not feel comfortable completing this repair I could do it for you if you send me the board. My email address is: email@example.com The cost is 375.00 and that includes parts. Good Luck.
Both power light and status light a solid red with no response to any buttons indicates the bulb timer has expired. You need to reset the timer by pressing and holding the left arrow key, the right arrow key and the power button all at the same time for a few seconds.
If there are no problems, the projector will fire up, but you must replace the bulb as it will fail soon and perhaps explode when it does.
cutta, you will most often hear a click on boot then the fans start up and lamp will then fire. The picture will start to show up....at what point does it shut off? and do you hear a click when the tv is turning off? Is it the complete tv shutting down, fans and everything that turns off? Do you see any lights on the the front panel "POWER", "STATUS" or "LAMP", what are they doing?
If you see a Power, Status or Lamp light after it shuts off the below are what they mean if there is an issue.
POWER - STATUS - LAMP - CONDITION/ISSUE:
Off - Yellow - Off - Temp. high/dirty filter/excess room temp
Off - Off - Yellow - 4000 hrs. Lamp usage warning
Off - Off - Blink Yellow - Lamp Cover open
Off - Blink Yellow - Off - Air Filter Cover open
Off - Off - Red - Lamp failure (failed to turn On or broken)
Off - Blink Red - Off - Fan Has Stopped
Off - Red - Off - Circuit failure (short) or DVI cable disconnected
If you want to check for the last "Error Code", after you first turn the TV on, by pressing the front panel ?DEVICE? and ?MENU? buttons at the same time and holding them for 5 seconds, it activates the Error Code Mode.
The ?Power LED Light? blinks/flashes (1/2 sec delay) and then flashes again denoting a two digit Error Code indicating no problem or an error has occured since the last Initalization. i.e. "Power light" blinks 3 times (1/2 second delay) and then blinks 4 times then 1 sec delay and repeats a few times. This would mean "Error 34 - Lamp abnormality". See below for error codes.....
Error Code - Description or issue
12 - No Error detected, check Power Supply
32 - Lamp Cover is open
33 - Air Filter Cover is open
34 - Lamp abnormality
36 - Light Engine (DMD or LAMP Fan stopped)
37 - Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 - Lamp temperature high
39 - DMD temperature high
41 - Short is detected
44 - DVI cable between FMT & Engine disconnected.
Sorry for the long answer but it was an open ended question.
