    Pulling hair out now. Have replaced lamp and casing, thermal switch, lamp cooling fan and extractor fan. TV is still doing exactly the same thing - clicks on, fans starts then stops, lamp lights up momentarily and then tv turns off to standby. Please help.

I belive its ur lamp

One problem involves the lamp cage being loose. The fix is easy. All you do is remove the lamp and put it back in, making sure everything is tight. I guess they had a problem at the factory, for a while, not tightening the lamp cage. They're making these things as fast as the can, you know, in Mexico. After a certain number of heating cycles, the lamp quits making connection.
before we cud go in for a replacement lamp.... there are a few things u need to check
Have you reseated the lamp? Try this...Some times the connector is not being connected well and don't make the full connection.

Also try reopening the cover and putting it back, maybe the sensor for the lamp cover is not fully pressed in.......the door where the bulb is must not have been closed tight enough. open it, reseat the door, and screw it down tight.
it's the mechanical location of the switch behind the lamp door. By design, if the lamp door is not completely secured, the switch will not be depressed and therefore the TV will not start up for safety reasons. What's happening in some of the random shut-down events is the switch is bent a little bit, but just enough to prevent consistent contact even with the lamp door adequately secured. The fix is to turn off the TV, bend the switch out a little so it will make good contact when the door is closed, replace the door, then turn on the set.

The above fix has resulted in complete resolution for many people with this problem.

now i ll have to advice u to have all the safety precautions in place.... make sure the power is off before even ur opwning the unit.... and all necesssary precautions..... if ur not comfortable doing it urself... dont do it as tvs have very high voltage.... in that case i urge u to have a repairman or atleast someone who knows abt tv circuits to do the job....
shud u have to replace the lamp.......
here are the websites from where u can buy the lamp......
u can choose the convenient option of the above two......

the instructions for changing the lamp are given in the below link..... please download that pdf file and proceed as per the instructions shud u wish to change it urself.....

please be careful and safe.....
if u feel my service was of any help... kindly rate my service....

good luck

On some Bathroom extractor fans there is a setting for the amount of time you want the fan to stay on after you turn off the switch, the setting dial is normally at the back of the fan so you need to take the fan down from the ceiling making sure the fan is electrically isolated.

4 times blinking means Fan stopped, power is not supplied on Fan 1, Fan 2 Fan 3 and at Fan 4. Or Fan connector is not attached securely. Cleaning these fans by using a vacuum cleaner can also solve your problem. Sometimes these fans are clogged by dust.

My bathroom fan will not turn itself off, it is connected to the bathroom light, light is turned off but fan goes continuiously??????

Then it is not connected to the light switch as you think. This could be a dangerous situation, and you should have an experienced electrician look at it.

When I power up, 5 seconds later this back projector TV turns itself off

t does sound like a bulb problem, either its over heating and shutting off to protect itself, or its already shot. Give a TV repair shop a call and see if they can give you an approximate price, then decide to ditch or repair it.
