I have a Sony KDF-55WF655 and the bulb blew out and I smelled something electrical burning.


3 blinks is indicating that the lamp door cover isnt making contact so the lamp door cover is either attached wrong or the switch is defective.

Loud pop


Check the lamp.
Pull it out and look at it.
More than likely the lamp has shattered inside the set and needs replaced.
Bulb replacement is made for consumers and can easily be replaced.
Need any more information, respond to this post and I will reply.

First replace bulb to make sure it's not the bulb. If it's not the bulb it is most likely the light engine. My suggestion would be don't invest in the light engine. Goes for about $500 plus for a re-built one and warranty is only 3-6 months on it. I purchased one and it went again in 4 months.

Please don't invest in any more dlp tv's. I learned the hard way.

I have the same one that I bought from Sam's in 2006. My lamp (TY-LA1000) just burned out recently. Most likely that is the same issue for your TV as well. You can buy direct from Pansonic or lookup on one of the many providers online. You can buy the lamp with housing or for less money you can buy just the lamp and use existing housing but will require more time.

hi I just read that this tv needs a few minutes to warm up i am going to .try it. iam having same problem. i had a tv tech install a bulb and it worked .
but i had a dispute with the tech about the cost of the fix and he took out his bulb and all though i purchased a new housing with bulb in it so that i didn,t have to touch the bulb, when i put it in i got nothing but green to flashing red to yellow. so if my bulb is good and the tech didn't
do something malicous than something has to be reset so that the tv will work because not even the sound of the tv worked.

Samsung hdtv HLP5085wx no image. Smelled something burning and sparking, turned off the tv. Tried turning it back on = have sound, NO image!


OMG! Dude, your screen is just plain fried. You don't need a new screen though, You just need a new bulb for it. See, behind the screen is a light bulb (unless your T.V. is plasma screen), sometimes two or three, and that burning smell was the bulb blowing (like when you need to replace a light bulb in a lamp or something). I don't know where you can find a new bulb, but once you replace it everything should be fine.

It very well could be the ballast. I unfortunately have this tv and keep extra bulbs because they go out about once a year. Last time when I replaced the bulb the tv blinked and the red lamp light flashed like it does when the bulb is bad. Ballast repair kit fixed it up. This is certainly a design issue but you'll get no help from Panasonic. If tv comes on the goes out after a while, clean the fan filter.
