We bought our Sony Wega in 2006 - we changed the bulb twice both times they exploded; we threw this tv out one month ago - sorry but its literally GARBAGE! within the first year the optical block went, then the replacement under my extended warranty that optical block was defective-within a month all the purple hues started showing up again - warranty over - never will I purchase a 4,000 tv nor any sony products ever again! the only good product I ever liked of sony was the Walkman!

I have a panasonic projection TV, PT-60C13 that will not turn on. Upon pressing the power on button, the button flashes green many times, then flashes red five time then one orange flash. This red/orange...


Hi,

The most common cause of Panasonic Rear Projection LCD TVs not starting is bulb failure. The PT-60LC13 users manual gives some help in translating the LEDs on the front of the TV.

If the TV worked normally for a period of time (months or years) and won't start, the most likely cause is bulb failure. There is no way to measure the bulb, sometimes the bulb is visibly damaged when it fails. Remove the Lamp Assembly and look at the bulb.

If there was an On-Screen Lamp Replace warning and TV won't start, bulb has failed.

The first step with all Panasonic Rear Projection TV "No Picture" problems is bulb replacement. If that does not remedy the problem, get a technician, there are no user serviceable parts. Guessing if the ballast, power supply, controller board or optical engine is faulty is not practical.

The Panasonic Lamp Gallery shows all Panasonic models and Lamp Numbers. There is also a link to Panasonic DIY bulb and lamp replacement.

The fan dont turn on when i turn on the tv and the red light is flashing


Hi,
Red light flashing on tv indicates that tv got some problem and shifted to protection mode to avoid further damage.
If Lamp light is flashing on tv then check lamp that would be dead or broke, replace lamp to solve tv problem.
If standby red light is flashing on tv then let me know how many times it is flashing after 3 seconds long pause to provide you helpful info.
Thanks.

TV won't stay on


One of two things can be the problem...one the bulb is bad...two the ballast is bad. If the bulb is not bad then the ballast is...it can usually be fixed by replacing a resistor on the board itself...it is labeled R3 and is a 1000 ohm resistor

My TV power light is flashing red. I took the bulb out and it is fine. But it is still flashing red. What should I do? Also, what do I do after I put the bulb back in?


You cant look at the bulb to see if its fine. Replace it. Also take apart the set and clean out all dust in the fans for the bulb and projector.

Sony Wega 55" Replaced Bulb TV still does not work


Hello, please check how many times the red light flashes. If it is 3 times this means that the lamp cover is not fastened securely. If the red light flashes 5 times this means that the lamp driver is defect. If you need more help please advice
