The picture on our TV is not coming on, but we still hear sounds. Is it a light bulb issue? If so, where can we purchase a bulb and how much do they normally cost?

Very well could be a light bulb issue. You can get one from here for $279 bucks. Good Luck

The picture went blank on my tv but I can still hear the sound. How can I get the picture to come back? All plug ins are tight. Thanks

When was the last time you changed the bulb for the projector? has this gone bad? If the bulb needs changed, consult your manual for instructions and if the bulb is good let us know.

Tv turns on w/pic then pic dissapears light blinks 4 times

I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.

the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.

A solution to this would be greatly appreciated.

Turn tv on, sound comes on but no picture, power light blinks,

The clear bulb located back left side needed to be replaced. Too much heat causes the bulb to burn out. Simple fix. One screw to open door to bulb compartment. Two screws to remove bulb assembly. Thank goodness for extended service warranty which paid for it. This is the second one in three years. At the price of $200 for bulb and $100 for trip and labor, this is not an inexpensive fix. Anyone purchasing a projection tv should get an extended warranty.

Tv picture does not come on

my first question is have you checked the bulb. the loud pop sound like the bulb blew and the rattling sounds like the lamos trying to fire. remove the bulb cover and unscrew the bulb
