You may have a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

A defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

The owner's manual will tell you step by step how to program it. Normally you would follow these steps (with the engine off):
1. Press and hold down the two outsid buttons releasing only when the indicator light begins to flash.
2. Position the end of your hand-held transmitter about 1 to 3 inches away from the buttons while keeping the indicator light in view.
3. Simutaneiously press and hold both the desired button and teh hand-held transmitter button. Do not release the buttons until the indicator light flashes slowly at first and then rapidly. Then releas both buttons.
4. Press and hold the newly-trained button and observe the indicator light. If the indcator light stays on constantly, programming is complete and your garage door should activate when you press the button.

Scanner Bulb Error Message

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bpl12028&tmp_task=solveCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=66366


ISSUE:
A Scanner Bulb Error message is received as a result of the HP LaserJet 3300mfp series product scanner's inability to find the home reference point.
SOLUTION:
Perform the following steps to walk the scan assembly from the home base and resolve the issue.

1.
Remove and replace the power cord from the unit.
2.
Wait approximately 35 seconds for the scanning assembly to "walk out" and then quickly remove the plug again.
3.
Repeat steps 1 and 2, three to four times until the head moves approximately 1 inch away from its normal resting place.
4.
Replace the plug and let the product fully finish the boot cycle.

If this does not resolve the issue or the issue returns, upgrading the product firmware may help. The firmware upgrade can be found at the HP Web site Downloads, Drivers, and Notifications page .

Hope I help you a bit.

Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixilation even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine replacing the bulb will not solve your issue. Have a blessed one!

I have a 50 in projection tv, how do i know if im light engine is bad or maybe its just my projection bulb thats bad? i have 2 dark spots on the top corners and some discolor on the top half of the screen....


Okay - now we are geting somewhere - This is an LCD rear screen projection Sony TV.
A few things to consider:
1) Is it in an fairly cleanly or dusty environment.
2) How long have you had it - how old is it?
3) Has it ever been taken apart and the output lens been cleaned ?
'large dust build up causes the dark spotsin the corners possibly'.
Here is the issue on LCD projection
a) If the lamp has an incredible amount of hours on it then it gets extremely hot and will damage the Polarizer and Analyzer filters 'your discoloring issue' and then harms the LCD panel 'not good'.
Ways to check your lamp - pull it out. If you look into the reflector and at the lamp element 'bulb' is there a lot of white build up? If there is, this is carbon build up. If there is any deformity to the lamp's nice and eliptical Bulb element or dark areas. Replace it.
Hope this all helps.
Blessings,

Hi my name is Eric,
I hope I can help you with your issue ,
Most likely your colorwheel is bad,
second possibility is the digital board.
Both are for a technician to install, you could do more damage poking around inside the TV.

Screen went black


I don't know. I've never actually replaced parts in a monitor. If the bulb is expensive, it might be best to buy a new monitor. They're cheap nowadays. Or you can check if there's warranty on the monitor and it can probably be fixed for free.

Go into the customer menu and find the "closed captions" heading. Within the closed caption you will find "TEXT". If you turn off closed captions or the text, whichever you menu lets you do, your rectangle will go away. Hope this helps

Dark Screen and flickering black screen


I am having the same problem and I think it is the bulb in the TV or the board that the bulb is on. Only had mine for 4 weeks!! Apparently this is a common problem with LG TV's that occur as often as 3 times a year with a minimum cost of £290 just for the bulb!! Wish I had known that before I bought it!

Would recommended contacting the store you bought if from and ask them to repair it seeing as it is so new, I am awaiting the engineer at present!
