If the inside has black spots, bulges, fogging, or it has shattered, replace it.

When you turn of the TV the POWER indicator flashes green for several minutes. The TV never comes on. After the several minutes of the POWER indicator flashing green, it stops, I hear a click and the...

A continuous flashing red light with the word LAMP on it would definitely mean you're going to need to spend a few bucks on a new lamp....or for a few more, upgrade to a TV from this century that doesn't require lamp changes :)

TV is on with a black screen no sound, and a red light flashes on the on button.

You need to determine whether or not the unit uses a lamp or a colour wheel to produce a picture. I have encountered that 99% of the time the symptoms described means it is a blown lamp.
You have two options you can either take the unit to a repair agent to have the lamp removed or you can remove the lower panel of the unit to access the lamp, a lot of the time the lamp can be accessed via a small panel on the side and is contained in the 'lamp assembly' box.
Once you have removed the lamp you can tell by looking at it whether or not it has blown, a blown lamp will look just like a light bulb that has blown (only larger) with the filament inside the bulb being shorted, if you cannot see inside the lamp, gently shake it and if you can hear a rattle inside it, the lamp is blown.
If this is the case, you will need to contact the local authorised repair agent in order to order a replacement lamp.
I hope this helps. Good luck.

My projector it not working! i press the power button and it green light but it not light show can you please help me and also colour keep flashing.

Sounds like the lamp might have blown. Sometimes the projector can't tell if the lamp is blown, so the usual red indicator light doesn't show.

After the projector is on, if you push menu on the remote do you see anything? Maybe the brightness is just turned down all the way. If you see no menu when you push the menu button it's time to inspect the lamp.

Open up the projector and pull out the lamp. You'll probably need a screwdriver to remove the cover, and then another screwdriver to unscrew the lamp and pull it out. Be careful not to touch the bulb's insides. Is the lamp on the inside of the fixture bulbous, or cracked. Look closely.

Watching the TV heard a loud pop picture went blank and smelled a little bit of smoke.

The first and most likely cause is that your lamp has blown. Simply remove it and inspect when they have blown its really easy to tell. Remove lamp door with a philips screw driver. The door is located I believe on the back of the set towards the right side. Once the lamp door is off there will be 1 maybe 2 screws holding the lamp assembly itself in place. Remove those then the housing should slide right out. The lamp number is 915B403001 for that model.. Good Luck!!!

No picture, lamp checks out as good.

You can not look at a lamp and tell that it is good or bad, unless of course it is shattered, some of them look just fine but are blown. If your lamp light is on I would suggest you change it and see what happens.

How do I tell if the lamp is blown?

well some times the lamp will break in the bell of the lamp
as to being able to see if its bad no you can not unless you see deformities such as the center lamp drooped or bulged and looks as if it melted
in the case that you can see them you have to swap them

How do I know if the lamp is out or the color wheel

If the lamp is blown out, you will see shards of glass floating around in the bulb. The wires that connect to the glass element in the center will be "disconnected". If the set is less than a year old the bulb is under warranty. All you will have to do is contat the people that sold you the televison and tell them the bulb is blown and do a warranty claim. Good luck!
