Re: Lamp indicator is red?

The blub burned out and its 300 to get replaced. I just had mine replaced and the mirror cleaning and the screen cleaned but I still blotches all over the screen but I was brighter. In my case its the might engine, which is 2000 worth more then the tv. Now I was told that the engine could be cleaned but it would not be perfect.


He looked at me the tech and said, your getting a new tv. I would suggested a flatpanel lcd. He said he never gets calls on those.


good luck. Jason N

Sony kdf e50 a60 when TV is turned on picture goes off almost immedately and red light starts blinking in stand by mode.

Red light blinking is an indication of lamp problem. Check and secure tightly the following:
  1. Outside lamp cover
  2. Lamp door
  3. Lamp
If all of the above does not solve the problem, you need to replace the lamp. Let the lamp to cool for 30 minutes after unplugging. Use XL-2400 replacement lamp.
  1. Remove the outside lamp cover.
  2. Remove the lamp door.
  3. Pullout the lamp
  4. Hook a finger through the loop of the lamp handle and pull the handle upwards. Then pull the lamp straight out.
  5. Mount the new lamp securely.
  6. Reattach the lamp door. Turn the knob back to "CLOSE" and secure the cover.
  7. Put the outside lamp cover back in its place.

I have an LG DLP. that turns off after 15 -30 seconds

If the second light is blinking to orange or red, that is usually the lamp indicator light on an LG DLP tv. That indicates your bulb needs replaced, or something surrounding the bulb has failed (like the cooling fan for the bulb for example) IF you have a spare bulb handy, I'd replace the bulb, keeping in mind if you touch any part of a new bulb with your bare hands, you just cut the life of the bulb by more then half.

No Picture - Lamp Indicator Blinking

This may be the main power supply, or the lamp supply. This is providing that the new lamp is okay.

The service tech will swap out the modules to service the set.

My Panasonic PT- 50LC13 doesn't turn on

Your service manual on page 82 steps you through decoding the blinking
1) there are two lights on the front near the reciever of the remote signals (Temp indicator and Lamp Indicator)
2) If the Temp indicator is on then they recommend you contact a service center
3) If the Lamp indicator is on and the power light stays on (no blinking) then you need to replace the lamp. Otherwise it says to contact the service center.
4) Counting blinks with the lamp indicator (1 every 5sec - lamp will not light or is abnormal, 2 every 5sec - lamp voltage is abnormal, 3 every 5sec - lamp temp is too high, 4 every 5sec - other error)

Replaced lamp and still no picture.

Does the red indicator flash or blink? How many times it blinks is a error code that tells a liitle about what is wrong. For instance, 3 red blinks means the air filter for the cooling fan is restricted and needs to be cleaned.
This model has lots of complaints against it, get it working and then put it under an extended warranty.
Hope Ya Fix it!

Lamp indicator blinks red

There is a problem with the lamp or around it? When it turns Orange, the lamp is at or near the end of it's life & needs replacing. What does the temperature indicator show? Orange, Red or Red Flashing? If not, then there is probably accumulated dust around lamp area

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...
