    according to the owner's manual, this means the projector lamp needs to be replaced. i have the same problem. called extended service contract people, they sent new lamp ($200/lamp!!) and say the owner can replace it. instructions came with bulb. but not accurate - it's not how MY tv looks. so now waiting for service technician to come replace bulb....called LG back and they said owner should definately NOT replace bulb - needs to be done by service technician. i love the tv when it works. but do not like the maintenance costs! won't buy another and wondering how to get rid of this one! apparently this is a common problem with DLPs....hmmm, don't know how to post this....tried before....maybe it'll pop up twice??

Wont power on


Sounds like you need a new bulb, or possibly new lamp. The red/green flashing is the warm up to get the bulb ready. If it's shutting down after that, instead of turning on, it means the bulb isn't working - that's a common thing, for the bulb to burn out. Possibly the lamp's bad, but that's much less likely.

I recently replaced the TY-LA1000 lamp but I'm getting a yellow flashing light that goes on every 5 secs.I made sure that it was installed correctly and tried resetting the timer by pressing + and - o


Yellow flashing light? Did you get any picture? Bet, not!
It means: your lamp door interlock is not engaged: did you forget to turn the locking knob? Did you install lamp compartment door? That might be the only issue. Lamp timer blinks 'red", while TV works normally. Reset the timer, it's gone, along with annoying message. Yellow means: interlock or thermal protection is off. Try to repeat lamp installation procedure. then, you'll find out your mistake. don't need to remove the lamp. It would be "red", if lamp won't fire up.
good luck,
Alex.

It sounds you need a new Projection Lamp; they usually last for 2000 hours or more. The led blinking is the lamp warm-up period and it fails now, if you replace the lamp be careful very static sensitive and blow the dust out with air while the TV is open. Hope this Helps.

Standy Light Flashes 6 times when I turn the TV on.


First thing I would try is the micro switch on the lamp door. The doors get overheated and warp pushing away from the switch. The micro switch shows the tv an open door and wont let the tv start. Depending on the model you have the lights mean different things but on a WEGA rear projection LCD it ususaly means a board has failed. I just had this problem on a KDF-60XBR950. The C2 digital board was bad. Good luck
