Question about LG 52SX4D 52" HDTV

No picture-lg ru-52sz51d

Have no picture when tv is turned on- tv "winds up" red light goes to amber light, it blinks, than two red lights flash on the front indicator panel and the show is over. No audio, no picutre, no nothin' I assume from reivews its the lamp light, some halogen bulb, calling the best buy help line, or part search its a 265.00 part - is this really the issue and where do I order and what are the skematics to repair the savage beast? tv won't turn on. red indicator light scrolls up and down and then flashes a couple of times and stops. picture came on once and was shaky and then went off after a few seconds.

Depending on what light is flashing it could be a few things. If the Lamp light (the middle one) is flashing that is problem with or around the lamp. That orange or amber light is an indication that the lamp is reaching the end of its life

If it is the Temperature light (the far right one) then the TV is shutting down because it is over heating and you need to check the cooling fan.

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.

Resetting the indicator light

Hold down on the Enter or OK on the TV and Mute on the remote control for 5-10 seconds. The TV should then ask what you want to do. Perform this with the TV on.
