Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I just replaced the bulb last week, yet this time the TV will still not turn on and all three lights are still blinking.

We've replaced the bulb several times before when all three lights have been blinking with success, but this time it sounds like the TV is trying to turn on repeatedly (4-10x before it stops), but no picture ever appears. The bulb turns on (can see light from the back) but the TV does not turn on and all three lights remain blinking in the front. Any suggestions?

It is possible that the replacement lamp is bad but more likely the TV has a protection mode that triggers wen the lamp goes out. Check the manual for ways to reset the lamp usage back to zero or a function that needs to be manually reset when the lamp is changed.

Tv won't turn on. All three lights flash in sequence power heat then bulb. The bulb appears to be in tact.


I will need the model number of the set in order to assist with the issue as the three lights blinking is an error code which would be different based on which model number TV you have.

Heard a pop , bulb blew out , replaced bulb , it worked for two days , now red light blinks three times pauses then three times and so on , tv won't turn off light won't turn off unless I unplug...


3 blinks indicates lamp door is not on or has not been reinstalled properly. This also could mean the lamp door switch has failed itself. Try removing the lamp door and putting back on, if that doesnt correct the problem then I recommend having the switch replaced.

Just replaced the bulb with a brand new sony bulb. it takes me almost 20 minutes to get the tv to turn on..i turn it on it turns itself off and red light blinks, and i keep trying until it finally powers...


Hi,
If red light blinks 3 times when tv refuse to power up then check lamp cover that was removed to replace lamp, make sure lamp cover is fixed in its position securely and screw is tight.
Let me know how many times red light is blinking after three second long pause IF it is not blinking 3 times.
Thanks.

Replaced bulb. Worked for a while then wouldnt power up again.


the cheew cheew cheew is the colorwheel not spinning properly. either the colorwheel motor is shot, the sensor can't sense it, or the power to it is too low. first thing: remove the cover and blow the dust out of it with canned air. dust does a lot of damage to these. if it is the sensor, cleaning it off might help. if it is the colorwheel, i have bad news: on the x1, the colorwheel is not sold seperately from the optical engine. you'd have to get the entire optical engine. now the worse news: infocus no longer makes or sells parts for the x1. you could try and find one on ebay that has a different problem and swap out the parts

Picture cycles off and on


I replaced a burned out xl-2000u bulb with an after-market Philips bulb on my Sony KF60XBR800. After a fews weeks, I started experiencing intermittent black-outs with the "stand by" red light appearing. After a couple weeks it became intolerable. I then purchased an OEM Sony lamp and the problem has been gone for months. I read somewhere that the Sony circuitry monitors either resistance or watts and shuts the thing down for board protection. It was said that it is so sensitive it can can use only the Sony bulb. I'm a believer. If the bulb is going bad, i wouldn't doubt the protection circuit can kick in.

Sound, but no picture. Standby light blinking 5 times


A few weeks ago my set started flashing to a black screen. Now a couple of weeks later, i have no picture, but the set turns on and i have sound. The standby light is flashing. I purchased the set in 2000 so it is seven years old. This is the first problem. Could it be all three of the bulbs? Could it be all three of the bulbs? no as you say that sound is ok that means your power supply &high voltage section is ok. please check chroma ic luminance section or system control section stand by ckt ihanks
