Red light blinking picture

I have an HD-56G866 the just developed this issue: No picture while watching TV. Blue power light stayed on, no noises other than what was playing through the receiver. Can't hear the cooling fan like I normally do when I get up to check the TV. Turn TV off, turn it back on. Blue power light goes off after a few seconds and red light blinks rapidly. Nothing turning on (no cooling fan as normal). No picture. No abnormal smells coming from TV (doesn't smell like anything electrical burned up). Thanks

TV blue light comes on, then the red light blinks two times, on the 3rd blink, it goes into rapid blinking. I replaced the lamp and it worked for a week, but then the same issue. I put the old lamp back...

some units require a lamp counter reset.the ballast usually starts at extreme output and at certain hour interval the ballast would start to decrease voltage as the bulb reset on some models can be reset using the remote

JVC HD-56FN97 when turned on blue light is solid,red ligt blinks a few times and goes out. My picture is very dark despite adjustments I make in the menu, any help or feed back apreciated.

The set does use a lamp for a light source and average life is 2 years or 2000 hours---many lamps before they actually fail get to be darker.

Please help!!! Problem with JVC DLP TV

You need to replace the power supply board. The new ones have a bigger heat sink - obviously JVC knows about the problem because they made the new ones bigger. It cost $250 from JVC and I installed it myself - took about 3 hours to do. If you are not tech savvy call a repairman. Hope this helps.

Please help!!! Problem with JVC DLP TV

How old is your TV?
Lamps in DLP TV has specific working hours and physically lamp will look good but won't give light ( actually consume more current and protection circuit stops power supply)
Thank you.

Toshiba TP43H95 projection tv has power but no picture

If it shuts off and then the power light starts blinking red or it never comes on but the power light just blinks red continuously that is usually indicative of the convergence ICs (STK 392-110). You never want to replace the ICs without also replacing the resistors that are associated with them. There are usually 6 resistors, one for each of the colors and there corresponding direction, IE Red horizontal, red vertical, blue horizontal, ect. In the case of this model tv all of the resistors are 2.2 Ohm and 2watts. You will find them right where the STK 392-110 ICs are. Right in front of them. They are blue and have this color code on them. Red, red, gold, gold. These are represented by stripes on the resistors. You can get the parts from They carry the ICs and the resistors. If you do not feel comfortable completing this repair I could do it for you if you send me the board. My email address is: The cost is 375.00 and that includes parts.
Good Luck.

Hitachi 55VG825 rear proj television blinking light and screen doesn't light up

Refer to owners manual ! Blinking indicates the type of fault that is occuring on all your tv sets. example : power light on red - indicator light beside it green but blinks rapidly for half a second rapidly then shuts off. This refers to a faulty lamp or a lamp that is near its expiration. Read your manuals if indicators refer to easy repair sweet, but if it says call tech then bummer...
