Your lamp is going bad. Search online and get a new one. Nothing to replace, just don't mishandle when putting it in.

Re: Picture turns off still have sound

I have the exact same problem with my tv. Unfortunately, I'm not sure what is wrong or how to fix it either. I notice your post is from July. Have you found a solution since then? - Sarah

I have the Samsung model: LN46E550F6FXZA, I can hear it power on, the red light on the front blinks 5 times then goes off. There is no sound or picture.

You will need to have it repaired, looks like the inverter board is broken. Google Samsung tv blinks 5 times, there's tons of threads.

Phillips tv no pic no sound just flashing light

Its not going to be a do it yourself repair--likely a bad board or even boards--have a repair center (authorized for this brand) inspect it.

Just getting a set like this apart safely is tricky.

Picture went out and red light on the front by power button is blinking. When I turn TV on I can hear sound but no picture,, then TV turns off automatically after a few seconds.

It seems problem with low screen voltage to three picture tubes in this rear projection tv.
If standby light blinks 5 times after three seconds long pause then adjust screen volts of each picture tube to solve this issue.
Screen volt adjustment requires expertise and job of professional so please call local tv repairman to help you.

TV works fine for about 3 minutes then the picture goes black and the red light on the front of the TV starts blinking. The sound works the entire time. If I shutdown the TV and wait a few minutes and...

The light is blinking a code. The code will be a series of blinks, a pause and the blinks again. Phone Sony service and give them this code. They will be able to advise you as to the problem.

This model is equipped with a self-diagnosis feature to help with diagnosis of shutdown problems. To activate this turn the unit on let it shutdown then press the input/device and menu buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold them in for 5 seconds after 5 seconds the power LED on the front panel will blink a two digit sequence. This will be one set of blinks a short pause then another set of blinks, this will repeat 5 times. 1 - 2 = no error detected 2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current) 2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies) 2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection) 2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source.

No picture

Good Day, aodame;

You say no picture, good! Now let me ask you:
1. Is the no picture black, blue or snowy?
2. Do you have sound?
3. NO picture on ALL inputs?
4. Any lights blinking on front TV panel?
5. Did you try resetting the TV by unplugging from the wall for 3 to 5 minutes?

If you could provide a Brand and Model numbers I could be more helpful, but I hope this was a start.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

PS: you may want to call a factory authorized service dealer to repair your TV.
