Question about Zenith E44W46LCD 44" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Lamp indicator blinks red

I turn the tv on and the picture comes on and stays on for ten seconds and then the tv turns off by itself. The lamp indicator then blinks red for 3 seconds. If I keep trying to turn the tv on, eventually it stays on until I turn it off myself. Sometimes it takes 2 tries and sometimes 10 tries. Do I need to replace the lamp? or is it something around the lamp?

Re: lamp indicator blinks red

There is a problem with the lamp or around it? When it turns Orange, the lamp is at or near the end of it's life & needs replacing. What does the temperature indicator show? Orange, Red or Red Flashing? If not, then there is probably accumulated dust around lamp area

Tv won't turn on. It blinks green then red.

Question shows tv is Sony KDF-60WF655.
Green light blinks when tv gets prepare to fire up lamp, check internal circuits then show picture on front screen.
Red light blinking shows some kind of internal problem during circuit check and protection got activated upon some failure.
Count the red light blink as you will see 3 second long pause and post it here to diagnose what section of tv got problem.
Did you replaced its lamp in last 2-3 years?

Status indicator flashes 3 short times, then one long red flash

Once the status light blinks 3 times, this is an indication that there's a problem with the lamp. The lamp may need a replacement.

If you replace the lamp, but get the same problem, check the inverter board.

If you're not sure where the inverter board is, then you may need to contact a pro for your safety.

Good luck and have a good evening!

I have an LG DLP. that turns off after 15 -30 seconds

If the second light is blinking to orange or red, that is usually the lamp indicator light on an LG DLP tv. That indicates your bulb needs replaced, or something surrounding the bulb has failed (like the cooling fan for the bulb for example) IF you have a spare bulb handy, I'd replace the bulb, keeping in mind if you touch any part of a new bulb with your bare hands, you just cut the life of the bulb by more then half.

Sony kf-50XBR800 tv turns itself on and off

I just purchased a replacement lamp off ebay and the TV is working fine now. Color looks better too (which I guess I should have expected). Search for "REPLACEMENT LAMP SONY XL-2100U" on eBay and look for seller "niosales". I paid $129 out the door. Their are other auctions for this lamp you can check out. Make sure you look at lamps that include the entire lamp housing, not just the bulb.
