    How can you bench test the lamp? I'm having identical issues with KDS-50A2000

You are hearing the spark gap mounted on the lamp ballast board. If you can hear that sound, that means everything in the lamp driver circuit is working except the lamp!

Get a new lamp.

TV turns on then cutts off


that buzzing is the high end power trying to turn the lamp on.... the electrical current and shock is what turn your lamp on your tv which is what the buzzing is dont worry thats normal...however your solution is buy a new lamp for your tv but make sure its the right serial number for lamp u cant just buy any lamp. best place to buy one ebay.... as in the lamp still trying to light up its only because the electrical current going into the lamp and then cutting off causing the red light on your tv....so other words all it is is the lamp... CAUTION!!!! those lamps get up to 400 degrees unplug tv to ensure no electrical current.... hope i helped.... JACOB WINKLER

My sony won't turn on. when I use the remote to turn on it flashes green six times, I hear a click and then it flashes red six time.


six times means the thermal fuse on top of the lamp tripped. Replace it and give it a good cleaning and it should work.

My Grand Wega KF60WE610 has no picture and has a buzzing sound when turned on. If left on the green light blinks and the buzzing sound may or may not occur again. Can anyone diagnose this issue?


That buzzing sound is this kind of Tv LCD Projection, is most likely a issue with the ballast (only if sound cames near the lamp) you can check that just follow the cables that are connected to the lamp, take out the back cover of tv, and keep pushing the switch cover (if not tv will not turn ON). and check if that sound comes from the only board connected to lamp. if it does, you are going to need a ballast very soon.

Sony LCD television will not power on.


I get 5 blinking red lights for about a minute or so before it powers back down. The Sony TV has a specific light that i presume is supposed to light up when the bulb is out. I'm unsure if this is what it is.
no picture, no sound. tries to boot with green light blinking a few times. then goes to red blinking light, six in all, then waits a few moments, then another 6 blinking red light.
Bulb was already replaced several months ago but we do have the TV on for long periods of time.

The buzzing is the ballast for the lamp trying to light the bulb. From what you've described it is a lamp failure. It's not that hard to change but you'll have to obtain a new lamp first. You can try and buy it from LG (800-243-0000) but I'm not sure if they'll sell to a consumer. Then you have to reset the lamp timer after you replace it. Hold the mute on the remote and the enter button on the tv at the same time for about 8 seconds and a screen will come up asking if you want to reset the timer. Just follow what it says to reset it.
