Tv is black and blue light is on with 2 red lights blinking on it and like a sizzling noise

  • Anonymous Apr 10, 2009

    TV was working splendidly this morning... then this afternoon it would refuse to turn on, and the blue light "on" indicator would flash with the red "temp" and the red "lamp" indicators flashing in quick succession. There was also a repetetive buzzing noise coming from the back of the TV. I'm a broke mother (expletive) so I can't afford to take this to the repair shop... can I fix it my own damn self?

Its the lamp or lamp ballast board. Take out the lamp and carefully examine it for flaws or signs of wear. These include a cloudy appearance to the glass, swelling or irregular shape to the thin glass tube that is in the center of the lamp. ( it holds the mercury) Also, look for any signs of overheating. If the lamp has been in use for 2 years or more, its the likely problem. If the lamp is new or appears to be in good shape, its possible that the lamp ballast board is bad. A service company will have to replace that for you. Good luck!

Toshiba 56hm66, lamp replaced but lights still blink


Check the circuit boards to see if any have failed. They are small cylindrical objects. If the tops of any of these are bulged instead of flat then they are bad and board will have to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Hi,do you hear any strange noises? If you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast.But if you don't hear any strange noises,tv is around 4000 hrs,2-3 yrs it could be time to replace the lamp.The lamp you need is 915B403001.Have a blessed one!

Refer to owners manual on code of blinking lights. 2 red blinks means fan is about to fail etc.. thats just an example of course. See the manual it will tell you what the blinking means. It will also tell you if you can fix it or you need a tech.
