Re: flashing light

The blogs on this subject are enormously helpful but you gotta be persistant to solve this TV problem because the fix may not be just the caps. I have a WS 65813, left the house for 3 months, came back to a blinking green light. Read Fixya and others and determined the fix is the caps on the DM board. Went to Radio Shack, got the caps, replaced them, plugged the TV in and now no light what so ever. In and out with the DM board 5 times before I called a local repair guy who told me to bring in the light box (chassis)..he said "I must have really done it.", meaning I'm way over my head and that's what I get for reading Fixya blogs and others. I swallowed my ego and decided to give him the light box chassis and $400 estimated. To take out the light box you have to remove the front panels. When I removed the glossy panel I noticed the cable connector to the power switch had separated, no doubt from the stress of sliding in and out the chassis to access the DM board (there is not much spare length in the cable feeding to the front panel). I reconnected it and voila! at least back to the blinking light..although still not fixed even with new caps. I read more blogs and saw there are three 4A SMT fuses on the underside of the DM PWB that someone suggested to look at. Got out the VOM, and there it was a bad fuse as open as the back side of my Mitsubishi. To see if it was the culprit and not having a replacement I soldered a small strand of wire across it, re installed the DM board now the 6th time and MADE SURE all connectors are back in place VOILA and it is fixed (temporarily) Super Bowl eve. I plan to get the right fuse and replace my temp fix. Lesson learned, you can mess things up trying to fix things so stay patient if you are a DIY're... you have to trial and error more since you are not the expert and are fixing things once. But it feels real nice saving $1,000. Now on to my charger on the boat.

Trying to replace lamp in HDTV and having trouble. Does not function correctly after putting in new bulb. Boots up and then visuals go black and the green power light keeps flashing. Help?

Panasonic DLP TV Bulbs

Make sure its an original Osram or Philips bulb inside the housing. If its a cheap lamp it will act this way. If it is an original lamp, then you may have a power supply issue. It shouldn't affect your TV but you may want to try resetting the lamp timer by following the instructions that came with the lamp.

TY-LA1001 Timer reset

While pressing the VOL- button on the projection display, hold down the number 0 button on the remote control at the same time for more than 5 seconds.

as far as it turning off on its own I would get a fan on it and see if that make a difference make sure that the fan is able to flow around the tv especially through the back of it, if this stops it from turning off then it is an overheating problem
