Problem with lamp turning on

When I turn the tv on, after the fan starts to run right when the lamp is suppose to turn on, I hear a clicking sound. The sound stops and starts again, then tv will shut off and the lamp light will start to blink. I didn't try to turn on tv for a while with busy schedule and one day turned on and it made a knock when tried to turn lamp on and then one second try lamp came on and tv was playing perfectly. Next day initial problem again.

That is the blink code for the lamp ballast. Here is the more complicated explanation from the service manual.

IC2301(pin11) detects the error of LCD Power C.B.A. and Lamp,
then indicates the error when an inner malfunction of LCD Power
C.B.A. occurs, the Lamp voltage becomes more than 130V or
less than 30V, Lamp current becomes more than 5A, or the Lamp is blown

Hope this helps.

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.

SOURCE: NO PICTURE, NO SOUND, TV TURNS ON THEN TURNS OFF

STOP THE PRESS!! I FIXED MY TV for a whopping $26.

I took a wild shot and purchased two STK392-110 convergence amplifiers from http://www.electronix.com/. They ship fast, placed my order on Tuesday evening after coming here and placing my comment. To my suprise the parts were in my mailbox on Friday. The parts were actually $12 but I also picked up a iron and a solder sucker.

So rarewish4us, If you're in the South Florida area I'd be more than happy to take that "JUNK" off your hands. LOL
If I were you, I'd give it a shot before you junk it.


Good luck,
Howie

Hi,
TV needs lamp replacement as existing lamp got weak or has been reached to end of its working life, please note that lamp is not dead or broken so that is why lamp lit is not lit at tv front.
Hope these info will help you.

I think that this is a ballast issue you are not suppose to hear any weird sounds coming from your TV set and if this ballast board is not working it will not be able to turn on the lamp this boards are not that expensive they range from $65.00dls to $90.00dls you need to take the ballast out and get the part number of the board to find the right one

Telly on but no sound orpicture


Hi,do you hear any strange noises? If you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on it could be the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast. But if you don't hear any strange noises,tv is around 6000 hrs,2-4 yrs it could be time to replace the lamp.The lamp you need is XL2100 you can find it here http://www.discount-merchant.com/Sony-XL-2100U-TV-Lamp-p/sony_xl-2100u_replacement_lamp.htm?Click=48173 .Have a blessed one!

If you hear the Lamp fan turn, it is probably the lamp it self that has failed. If you do not hear the lamp fan turn then the fan could be bad or binding.

Is there supposed to be a cooling fan for the lamp ??


Mitsubishi had a problem with the power board in a lot of the DLP sets. The fans would not turn on when they were supposed to, and the lamp would create too much heat. Call mistubishi support, have your model and serial numbers handy. Sometimes they will warranty this problem een after the 1yr warranty has expired.

Tv keeps turning off?


cutta, you will most often hear a click on boot then the fans start up and lamp will then fire. The picture will start to show up....at what point does it shut off? and do you hear a click when the tv is turning off? Is it the complete tv shutting down, fans and everything that turns off? Do you see any lights on the the front panel "POWER", "STATUS" or "LAMP", what are they doing? If you see a Power, Status or Lamp light after it shuts off the below are what they mean if there is an issue. POWER - STATUS - LAMP - CONDITION/ISSUE: Off - Yellow - Off - Temp. high/dirty filter/excess room temp Off - Off - Yellow - 4000 hrs. Lamp usage warning Off - Off - Blink Yellow - Lamp Cover open Off - Blink Yellow - Off - Air Filter Cover open Off - Off - Red - Lamp failure (failed to turn On or broken) Off - Blink Red - Off - Fan Has Stopped Off - Red - Off - Circuit failure (short) or DVI cable disconnected If you want to check for the last "Error Code", after you first turn the TV on, by pressing the front panel ?DEVICE? and ?MENU? buttons at the same time and holding them for 5 seconds, it activates the Error Code Mode. The ?Power LED Light? blinks/flashes (1/2 sec delay) and then flashes again denoting a two digit Error Code indicating no problem or an error has occured since the last Initalization. i.e. "Power light" blinks 3 times (1/2 second delay) and then blinks 4 times then 1 sec delay and repeats a few times. This would mean "Error 34 - Lamp abnormality". See below for error codes..... Error Code - Description or issue 12 - No Error detected, check Power Supply 32 - Lamp Cover is open 33 - Air Filter Cover is open 34 - Lamp abnormality 36 - Light Engine (DMD or LAMP Fan stopped) 37 - Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped 38 - Lamp temperature high 39 - DMD temperature high 41 - Short is detected 44 - DVI cable between FMT & Engine disconnected. Sorry for the long answer but it was an open ended question.
