Green light flashes 3 times, tv won't come on

When you plug the DLP TV up, the green led flashes 3 times, pauses, repeats the cycle continuously. The fan is on, Will not turn off or on completely. Checked and reseated the bulb which was replaced 6 months ago. Does not appear shattered. What is wrong with the TV? Is the ballast bad? Is there something I can do to fix this? All I get is a black screen, green flashing led, and a fan running in the background.

Hi Mike,

May I know if the LED light at the front panel has a pattern of flashes or flashing continuously in green color.

Please check if you can access the "Self diagnostic screen" by following the steps below.
- To activate, press the front panel "Activity" and "Channel down" buttons at the same time and hold for 5 secs. The Status led will then flash a two digit code. Example, if the error code is "23" the led light flashes 2 times(blink, blink) pause and then flash 3 times(blink, blink, blink). Let me know the error code, it will help to diagnose where the fault came from.
Note : the TV must be in shutdown not switched off, or AC power cord is removed because the code will reset to "12" means no error. Use the front panel buttons not on the remote control. If you can't access the self diagnostic, press and hold the "Activity" button on the front panel for 5 secs before entering the "self diagnostic" code.

Kind Regards,

I hav a mit 65 in tv model number wd 60737 it comes on with the words welcome mit and green light blinks and then shuts off.

Does the led light flashes green continually?

Check if you can access the operational error code. The TV must be in shutdown and then press the front panel "activity" and "channel down" at the same time and hold them for 5 secs.

Led light will flash 2 digit code separated by a pause.

23 - 2 blinks pause 3 blinks

Let me know the result...

Most likely a defective digital module which is part of the light engine and cannot be bought separately. The average cost to replace the light engine assembly is around $800.00.

the green is the reboot process and is normal.
the red light is an error code indicator.
count the blinks of the red cant be 30 times (I think)
it will blink a sequence, pause, then do it again for a total of three times.
count carefully, it gives you three chances to catch the number it is blinking.

The standby light should be flashing in a repeated count with a short pause between the counts. If you could post that count here, it will give us an indication of the circuit in which a problem was found and allow us to provide solutions.
