Runs about 15 minutes and shuts off

hello!are you sure, there is no "off" timer involved? or "sleep timer" getting pushed on remote control? If not: D.L.P. or L.C.D. projectors might have the lamp on a brink of life. Heats up, then quits. May be the picture was quite dim for a while? time to replace the lamp! get lam with housing! don't try to be smart...! It's very simple task to replace the first, rather than save a 10 bucks and get things messed up. I've seen it many times! You need to know "how to" for bare lamp. no need to special knowledge to replace lamp with housing. Just locate the lamp door, unscrew the door, then lamp and go ahead with installation. If you have an old fashion CRT(picture tube) projector, that's a major job! It might shut down due to numerous issues. As of the faulty parts or solder joints or both. there is no such a remedy for a "big screen TV", unless somebody knows exact cause, make, model, etc.Good luck,Alex.

Tv picture blinks on an off, is the lamp failing ? i have been told that replacing the lamp will correct the picture going on and off.

Yes possible cause is the lamp, but if you replace the lamp you should also reset the lamp timer of your unit good day and best regards.

Procedure for resetting your lamp timer,

Use the Remote Commander to put the set into service mode to display the service menus.

1. TV must be in standby mode (Power off).
2. Press the following buttons on the Remote commander within a second of each other: DISPLAY ==> Channel 5 ==> Volume + ==> POWER. The first service menu (TV) displays.

To reset the Lamp Timer:
1. Press the JUMP button 3 times on the remote to get to the Panel OSD mode.
2. Next press the remote channel 2 button 9 times to get to the Lamp Timer mode.
3. Press the remote 3 button, mute, then enter to reset the timer to zero.

It will take 45-50 seconds for the timer to reset. After the timer is reset you can shut the TV off. The lamp timer will remain reset (no need to save).

How Do I Reset the lamp Timer?

I have replaced many lamps in LG TV's and have NEVER heard that. The lamp is meant to be replaced by the consumer but the timer on LG's is ONLY resettable by a special service remote that technicians usually have. The timer has no effect on the voltage to the lamp.

Lamp clock reset

The only way to reset the lamp timer is with the LG programmer remote, however resetting the lamp timer does not affect the picture quality. If you need a part # for the remote let me know. Maybe you can find an auth. service center who will let you use the remote. If they do, simply power the unit up and when running hit the instart button on the programmer remote and after the menu comes on the screen simply hit the offstart button. The unit will shut of and when you power it again the lamp timer will be reset.
