Re: Slow blinking red light

Yes you can first try this:. Red status LED, self-diagnosis error 44, check for open F9A06 on the Power PCB part # 283P128050 on the Power PCB 2. Red lamp LED, self diagnosis error 34. Check for 5-volts DC at J-9 connector pin 1 and 2 on the Engine Driver PCB if missing replace the Power PCB part # 930B921002 3. LED stops blinking after 70 seconds of plug in but will not power on. This model is equipped with a keyboard lock feature, this can be mistaken as a no power condition. To unlock the keyboard press and hold the "menu" button on the front panel for 10 seconds 4. LED stops blinking after 70 seconds of plug in but will not power on. Check for 3.2 volts DC at connector LE pin 3 and 4 on the Control PCB, if low suspect problems with the switches/buttons on the Control PCB part # 935D776001 5. LED stops blinking after 70 seconds of plug in but will not power on. Keyboard is not locked and key inputs at connector LE pin 3 and 4 check good. Suspect the E2P PCB part # 934C121001 6. LED does not stop blinking after 70 seconds of plug in. Disconnect the USB connector from the card reader to the front from the Chassis, if the unit will then boot up replace the Card Reader part # 299P271010. 7. LED does not stop blinking after 70 seconds of plug in. Disconnecting the USB connector from the Card Reader did not help. Suspect the DM PCB part # 934C116002

Blinking status green light red

The most common issue for this TV is the lamp.
If the current lamp in the TV set is around 2-3 years old then I would start with that. If the lamp is not original they only last about 1 year.
If you already replaced the lamp recently the next step is the ballast.

I hope my answer was helpful :)

Hi there,
5 blinks means there is a problem with the video board. It could be as simple as unplugging everything, includding power. Wait 3 minutes then plug power only back in. Or it may be a damaged component that requires replacing.
Hope this helps

Your lamp door switch or lamp switch (there are 2) may not be fully engaged or one may have failed. Try seating the lamp again, you may not have it fully installed.

You very well could have problem with the Ballast board that powers Lamp or your Lamp Fan maybe defective and if you need orinagnal hand unit for set Call Encompass Parts Distrubtion or Go to their website type in Model number they will list Parts /Prices for your model.
1-800-638-3328 Mats Electronics also sells handunits .To reset timer
Hold VOL- on front of TV and Menu on hand unit at same time for 5secs
if this does not work try it in reverse Hold Menu down on TV and Vol- on hand unit. Check your Lamp Fan see if it quits running while turning set on,if it starts and stops it is defective, other wise Follow wires that Lamp plugs into it will connect to Ballast board that powers Lamp CK it Problem M/B Ballast Board.

Just replaced bulb to a phillips, lasted one month

Most systems with lamps will have a timer. If the timer gets to a certain hour the set should warn you to replace the lamp. Once you do, you have to reset the timer. If it gets to the max it will not allow you to turn it on till the timer is reset. Check your manual or call the mfg. to see how to reset. Sometimes it's the volume up and down at the same time or menu and power at the same time. They are all different so if you have no manual it's best to call tech support to get the reset steps.

Your TV needs a new lamp. We have had our TV for 3 yrs and every year without fail, we have had to replace the lamp. Its getting old at this point because our warranty is about to run out and that means we will be paying around $170 a year to replace the lamp. I wouldnt buy this TV again.....
