How did you get the cover off and was it the top or bottom cover?

Posted on Jan 30, 2009


Mine did the same thing, then I took the cover off and found the main circuit card loose. Pushed it back together and it works fine now.

I replace a new Philips bulb on my HL-R7178W and still not light up. It has humming noice (not hi pitch) and clicking like on and off and the Standby/TEMP and LAMP lights flash 2-3 times and turn off. The...

Hello... I would start by getting the correct lamp for the TV, and I would advise getting an original equipment lamp. The lamps and ballasts are matched by wattage and operating voltage, and a mis-match will at best cause early lamp failure. The sound you are hearing could be the ballast trying to ignite a bad lamp caused by a mis-match. I hope this helps!

When powered on, the green standby light continues to blink until it eventually turns red and the cool down process begins. The set top box is powered on but the picture never comes on.

The most common cause of No Picture - Lights Flashing, or Intermittent Picture - Picture Cuts Out in all Sony LCD TVs is bulb failure.

No troubleshooting or replacing parts should be attempted without installing a "known" good bulb. This is not a fault, the mercury in the bulb has been consumed.

Many dollars are spent on parts and service when the only problem is bulb failure.

You can replace the complete Lamp Assembly or the Bare Bulb. DIY or get a serviceman. Here is a link that shows how to change or replace the bulb or lamp in Sony KF50WE610.

Probable lamp failure, lamp won't turn on leading to red light to come on. How many times does it flash? 3 means safety switch bad, 5 flashes means lamp or lamp ballast failing.

The picture goes off, the power/standby light

Sony KDF-60XS955 picture goes and power/standby light light flashes


Most likely you have bulb failure. First step in troubleshooting is "Change the Lamp or Bulb". Lightning, power line bumps and collisions with vacuum cleaners can all shorten lamp life. Rough handling in shipment can also happen without your knowledge.

+90% of all Sony LCD Rear Projector "No Picture or Intermittent Picture" faults are related to bulb failure.

If new lamp does not improve the situation, then hands-on troubleshooting by someone that has parts and knows how the unit works is the only practical remedy.

Panasonic pt-50lc13 it just will not turn on,but the red light is on and the lamp was replace

Is the lamp indicator light flashing? A new lamp may not solve the problem. The known problem with lamp failures is poor voltage output from the ballast,.. a problem Panasonic refuses to correct and they decided to no longer provide the repair part through their supplier in an attempt to sweep this problem under the rug.
Lamp light flashing once every 5 seconds or twice every 5? Twice every 5 seconds,....lamp failure, once every 5 seconds,...ballast or thermal fuse failure. You have a lamp, ballast or thermal fuse problem. The ballasts are a discontinued part and can only be purchased used at approx. $225.00 or rebuilt for around $175.00 less any service charges to diagnois and repair.

Problem with tv turning on and off

Does the green light begin to flash when the picture disappears? If so, you have a weak lamp causing your TV to shutdown the picture. Replace the lamp with an original Sony lamp as the aftermarket lamps are known to have problems such as early failure and low brightness. Please be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

First, check if any of the vents are clogged with dust. If not, try another lamp. They don't always look bad when they are bad. If you feel handy, by the lamp itself without the cage and swap in the new lamp. Make sure you do not touch the new lamp (finger oil is bad for the lamp. The oil creates a hot spot and early failure).

red light indicates lamp is expired. even though you get temporary light, the lamp is shot. Try BULBMAN.COM for a new lamp.
