SOURCE: power light flashed red 4 times then repeats no pic,new bulb/fan!

Check the fan that cools the bulb. It is directly behing the bulb. It should turn on when the power comes on. It apparently has a safety to protect your tv(and home). mine is in the process of going out. looking for online solutions as we speak.

3 blinks is the lamp door error code. Try jumpering the door switch. These switches are notorious for going bad.

You need to open up set and clean out all fans of dust or the new bulb isnt being cooled, or the color lcd isnt being cooled shutting TV off.

What is the solution to the blinking green light and welcome screen then tv shuts itself off


I recently had this problem on my model as well, though it was lessthan a year old. The method that worked for me is to update thefirmware of the TV itself; you can download the new software, with complete instructions on how to update your TV at http://support.mitsubishi-tv.com/documents/WD-60C9
After doing this, my set started working again.
Do not replace your lamp. the light will blink red for a bad lamp, not green.

Tv light standby red just keeps blinking after replacing bulb


Hi,
If red light was not blinking before lamp replacement and after that it start blinking 3 times then pause for three seconds and again blink, check lamp cover that has not been fixed on tv or it is not fixed/ seated correctly there.
Lamp cover is first thing that you removed from tv to replace lamp.
Hope these info will help. If red light is blinking other than 3 times, let me know how many times it is blinking along with tv model number written at rear to provide you helpful info.
Thanks.

When did you replaced lamp in tv?
If lamp has not been replaced in last 2-3 years, please check lamp as it seems dead, that is why tv does not turn On.

Samsung hln617w dlp tv won't turn on. Red temp


Had similar problem. Thought it was the lamp. Examined old lamp but it appeared to be good. Ordered a new one anyway. Changed the lamp but the TV screen would not come on. It would make the usual noise as it was going to come on normally but it would cycle 3 times & then turn off. The LED lights in the front panel would indicate a defective lamp. Then read about the ballast. Changed the ballast & still same problem. Tried starting the TV without the lamp installed & noticed that the color wheel did not spin. Removed old color wheel & discovered it was broken. This appears to be the cause of all of my problems. I wish I new earlier of the test-turn on the TV without the lamp being installed & check to see if the color wheel is spinning. Would have save money on the lamp & ballast.

TV not working after replacing lamp


yes, the door has to engage a switch and if it doesn't the tv will not come on it usually has a 3 blink error if this is the problem. Is your red light flashing in a 3 blink series?

Panasonic PT-53WX42 - When I turn the TV on, the red light comes on but, no sound or picture.


Does the light blink? If it is blinking a 3 code, the IC's need to be replaced. Those three lamps as you called them are not lamps, they are the three picture tubes.
