Re: Changed bulb, green light blinks, nothing happens

Found that the thermistor/temp measuring device is suspect, no resistance across legs. There is a label there that says F701 see service manual
I went here for a tech manual for the Panasonic
then ordered
Manufacturer: Panasonic
Part Description: FUSE
Part Number: LSJA0411-1
it was mounted to the case that holds the lamp. had to remove the back panel, etc. Also think I had to splice in the fuse or something. was a while ago.

i purchased a NTE8115 from my electronics supplier, closest I could find.
Radio shack also has them.

remove the back cover and measure for continuity across the thermal fuse
above the lamp housing.
if open jump it wth a 5 amp fuse, be sure to close the safety switch with
the small blue lever then try to power on.
If comes on ok you will need to replace the entire ballast assembly to get
that fuse.
Panasonic does not have a part number for just the fuse on the PT40LC
It is possible to cut off the fuse and replace with another but dont solder

I have a Sony Wega LCD Projection 60wf655. When I turn it on, the red light turned green and blinks green 6 or 8 or 10 times or indefinitely. No picture but after a minute of being on the screen glows...

This could be the "thermal fuse" which usualy is next to the light bulb. Part cost around $5.00. Please check your manual for directions depending on light and times blinking.

Green light will not stop blinking

often the capacitors will show no visible sign of swelling. 90% of the time the blinking light symptom is caused by those capacitors
