HP Pavilion md5880n TV new lamp, left red light

I have a HP Pavilion md5880n TV that I’m almost ready to trash. I had the bulb blow and replaced it 2 months ago. It worked fine until yesterday when I attempted to turn it on all I got was a slow blinking blue light for a few minutes then to a solid red (on the left). I can hear the fan starting and stopping too.

I unplugged it for a few minutes and then I removed and reinstalled the lamp module but this didn’t help the problem. Any ideas on what I should do next?

Red light


Make sure you have atleat 8" of space behind the set. Also if you have any type of filter or a fine mesh screen over the lamp cage you should take it out and clean of the dust once in a while. Lack of air flow will shorten the lamps life. Also turning it off and on repeatedly. If you turn the TV on in the morrning and it does not go off till night then all you will get is a year out of it.

If you have a voltage meter you can pull the bulb out and check for continuity by placing the probes on the power plugs of the bulb. If you have continuity the bulb should be good, and it may be the lamp ballast.

Blue power light keeps flashing, but the tv won't turn on


Same thing just happened to mine. I think these replacement lamps (L2114A) are nearly impossible to find. They are no longer available through HP and I've ben unable to locate one through a reseller.

Sony Wega KF-42E200A Projection Bulb


New bulb is just fine.
3 blink shows that lamp cover after replacement of bulb in TV is not fixed properly or not seated well in its position.
Put new bulb and carefully place back lamp cover in its position because lamp cover will press tinny safety switch inside that will send signal to system control of TV that lamp is installed properly.
Turn On TV and get vivid picture of Sony.
Thanks.

MD5880N replaced bulb and worked for 2 hours now nothing


Place heat shielding around the lamp to prevent overheat; use cooling spray (freon) to cool any chips or, circuit boards near the lamp as you attempt to start the set check the lamp for the correct serial # voltage etc.

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.

Hewitt Packard high definition DLP tv Product #EX543AA#ABA need part, hp no longer carries them.


I have a brand new L2114a lamp for sale. I paid 299 plus shipping on ebay but it turned out to be the wrong one (despite what the manual says). I ordered the correct one I needed from HP. I am willing to part with it for 200. I can send pictures of the lamp and the box and the reciept. This is a BRAND NEW LAMP.

This lamp works in the following televisions and replaces the lamps listed below:
HP Pavilion md5020n 50-inch High Definition DLP TV L1735A
HP Pavilion md5820n 58-inch High Definition DLP TV L1736A
HP Pavilion md6580n 65-inch High Definition DLP TV L1737A
HP Pavilion md5880n 58-inch High Definition DLP TV L1798A

WD-62327 Lamp


OSRAM VS. PHILLIPS
This is about buying replacement bulbs for the WD62327 TVs.I dont know about the other models but I purchased a PHILLIPS replacement bulb and it worked for about a week and then those dumb flashing lights and no TV. I did some research and others were saying that you had to replace some condensers. Shop would do it for 600 dollars..Well i sent the bulb back and bought an OSRAM replaement bulb. The TV is now working perfect.
