The flashing green bulb light means the access door for the bulb on the lower right side of the TV is open or loose. There are two screws that hold it in. If they are tight, maybe the interlock switch is bad or disconnected. Open the door, and hold in the little white interlock button while turning on the TV. If it still doesn't work, there are wires leading from the switch to a connector about halfway across the TV on the bottom. Connector might be loose. Unfortunately, it is hard to reach. You might have to remove the screws across the bottom rear edge that hold in the chassis and gently slide it out to reach the connector.

My LG projection tv (serial number 52sx4d-ub) won't turn on, an orange light flashes then turns red. How do I know if I need to change the bulb or the ballast? And how much does it cost to change the...


Orange blinking light under a small picture of a light bulb? Then turns to a red light?
Sounds like the same problem I had when I picked up my LG 52SZ8R. After replacing the lamp the TV ran fine.

Easiest way to see if the lamp is the problem is to take it out, and look at the peice of wire in the globe as you would an old light globe.

If you need help, download the following manual, and look at page 9.

If it does come down to you needing to replace the ballast contact: http://www.statewideapp.com.au/index.php?selectedContent=1188381775
They should be able to give you a quote and part number, if you don't like their quote you can always use the part number to search for one thats cheaper.

How can i tell if the lamp is bad. The t.v tries to come on but it never comes on. A red light flashes next to the bulb sign on the front panel


The indicator light next to "lamp" flashes when the projection lamp needs to be replaced, take a quick look at your operators manuals "troubleshooting" section for help on what these "warning lights" on the TV mean.
Good Luck !

LG DLP not turning on


well i know what the problem is... if your getting the white scroll and then the red light flashes but the fans are comming on and you got a new bulb the broblem is the ballast. i know cuz i had the same problem and a good friend of mine has a tv shop and i had him look at it but the good news is that its not that hard to change. if you try to go through LG thay wont be able to sell you the ballast if your just a coust. good news is that you can fined the ballast on ebay from s.gifeasywaylamps its about $130.00 bucks shiped. bad news about is that thay are from china(it is where i got mine) but it works great and hasent gave me a broblem yet. if any one eles has the same problem and it was something eles.... PLEASE POST IT. i hope my info has been helpful to someone.... thanks Brad Ross of East Moline Illinois... you can email me at plopit40@yahoo.com

Lg 52sx4d problem


If the red light scrolls through, you need to replace the bulb. I replaced the my own bulb, and when I tried to turn on the tv the light kept scrolling. What was wrong? I DIDNT FULLY REASSEMBLE THE TV AFTER REPLACING THE BULB.

Make sure that all the screws are put back in and it will probably work if you have replaced the bulb.
