Dlp tv wont start up/ switches off

My two year old LG Electronics RE-44SZ20RD dlp tv ,when turning on sometimes (getting more common) when I try to turn it on out goes the red standby light and then has to be either unplugged and plugged back in or turn it off/on at the switch on the front of the tv THEN it will start up and work fine all day with a perfect pic. This has happened twice in a row for my wife! Any ideas?

    When I try to switch my two and a half year old (out of warranty) LG on it will just "click" itself off, sometimes with a whir or squeak noise as the fan kicks in. BUT after two or three attempts it fires up and stays on completely fine. This has gone on for a few months now, is there anything I can do to repair this?

    P.S. It was repaired last year (under warranty) for a cracked reflector thingy, I think that's the technical name for it, that caused a visable line across the top of the screen.

    Please help.

Hi.

 

This model of LG set does suffer badly with dry joints (these are soldered joints that have oxidised or cracked)

Its not A job that I would recomend you tackle you may need specialised soldering gear when working on smd type ICS.

Try & find repair shop that does free estimates.

If A repair shop states they will repair in the home offer to take it in to them as this is very difficult to repair in the home & you will end up paying more for them to come out then take it away.

LG DLP TV Won't Start Up


After the bulb replacement, the lamp hour should be retested. If you replace the bulb, and after the lamp hour reset to new bulb; and after that you replace it with old bulb, it won't work. In most cases, the lamp ballast too have to be replaced with a new bulb, and it is a good practice too. If the TV refuses to start up, there are many reasons for that. It will be best to contact any experienced service technician; I suggest. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Picture getting darker over the years


It could be your Light Engine. However, I would first check a few things:

1. Make sure your Low Power/Lamp settings are adjusted so that they meet your brightness needs.

2. Make sure you used a Mitsubishi original lamp, as generics get chewed through fast and hard.

3. Try another lamp; sometimes you can get a bad one in the bunch.

All those things don't work, consider a Light Engine ($400 + for parts; $300+ for labor)

The lamp is most likely over heating. Check the fan in the lamp assembly compartment. Its located in the rear of the tv... try removing the lamp compartment and replacing the fan.

A quick fix is to put a small 7-10 inch box fan with its back flush to the lamp
compartment's vent - this will draw the heat out.

Zenith DLP-Projection tv 42"


Try this solution which I found on Fixya

This solution is for the zenith 56" DLP. Unplug the tv, either from the wall socket or the TV. While the TV is unplugged hold the power button on the TV for 40 seconds. This lets the excessive power drain from the TV. If this does not work call 1-800-243-0000. This is the number for their help line. This is the fix the tech gave me and it worked right away. Hope this helps and have a great day.
