I had a bad lamp and have now replaced. When I try to turn on the tv, the menu panel flashes on and off blue. It will not come on. Is there something else that could be wrong?

You most likely have to reset the lamp timer. If it gets maxed out it will not turn on till it is reset. Check your manual to see how to reset.

I got the 'lamp needs replacing' message. Ignored it. Now my tv screen is black when you try to turn it on and the blue button on the power button flashes?


You haven't replaced the lamp at time. Replace a new lamp along with its ballast and make a lamp time reset. If you wish to get more details about the lamp replacing procedure to Panasonic PTVs, check this link.

Flashing green light and then blue welcome screen comes on then the tv shuts off.... downloaded the update online and tried to upload to tv.... tv shuts off


Possible bad lamp, color wheel or both. Do you also hear a grinding or louder than normal whirling sound? If so, then it's your color wheel. If not, try just replacing the lamp.

Samsung model hlt4675sx\xaa projection tv wont work. the stand by/temp light flashes red and the lamp light flashes green? it makes the sound that it makes when it turns on but no picture. we looked at the...


It could be the temp sensor going bad. This sensor sits on top of the metal housing which the bulb assembly slides into. The bulb assembly will have a hole on top and this is where the sensor is above. There is a small blue and white wire that plugs into it. If you pull the wire out and put a paper clip or wire in the coupling you will basically bypass the sensor connecting the blue and white wire. If your tv turns on then that is your problem. Its cheap too. Here were my symptoms..1] Turn tv on 2] Bulb would light up..(which eliminates the ballast) regular picture would show up (which eliminates the bulb and color wheel) 3] 30 seconds later tv would shut down with 3 flashing lights. After bypass the tv turned on as always and hasnt shut down yet. Always un plug tv first. Get the replacement part to avoid overheating and possible fire

The tv will turn on but no the screen wont. and


Replace the lamp would be the first thing to try. Lamp door switch on this model is notorious for going bad. If you replace lamp and still won't turn on jumper door switch. If you take off back you can see switch board.

Tv not turning on


I also have this model. A few months ago, when I turned on the tv, it told me my lamp was in need of replacement. just yesterday, my tv did the same as you....the blue light flashed and then the lamp light kept flickering. All I can say is your lamp needs to be replaced.

Tv wont turn on


Hello,

I have a pile of these in my shop. Unfortunately and usually, a backlight lamp is bad, and the inverter board is damaged when it goes out. The backlight lamps are sealed inside the panel, so the usual method of repair is to replace the panel.
If you turn the lights off in the room, then turn the tv on, you will probably see a momentary flash of light from the backlight trying to start up. The lamps can be replaced, but the option is not really cost effective given the amount of time it takes to replace them/very delicate nature of the lamps/availability of the lamps/cost of the lamps. Replacement panels might be available, but you'd have to use a TV shop for reference or call Sanyo directly.
These units also have a history of power supply heat damage, so if you don't see the momentary flash, it could be the power supply. But the momentary flash is the dead giveaway.

I hope this helps you...

TV WONT TURN ON. BLUE LIGHT GOES ON THEN THE TWO RED LIGHTS BLINK IT HAD BEEN WORKING THEN ONE DAY IT JUST WONT TURN ON.


I'm going throught the exact same thing right now. After the lights quit blinking, and the blue light goes off, does the red lamp light stay on. This usually means your lamp has gone bad ($200.00 plus). But when I ordered the lamp, it did the same thing. Had to have the certified hitachi repair man come out for the and told me it had to be a bad lamp, so I ordered a 2nd one with the same result. He came out again and had to take the TV away, later telling me the ballast must have blown when the original lamp went bad. Another $200.00 part. I haven't fought this one with Hitachi yet but am going to try. The ballast shouldn'e go just because the lamp goes out. The set is only 21/2 years old and I've already had to spend about $700.00 on the light enging replacement and now this lamp and ballast expense. Love the TV but would expect a lot less problems from a $2500.00 top model Hitachi. I'm going to see if they feel the same way, hopefully not but I'm not real optimistic they will care. Hope this helps.
