Question about LG 52SX4D 52" HDTV
The tv cycles and turns on but within 5 sec. it turns right back off into standby mode with the lamp indicator flashing red.
I bought an LG 52SX4D 52 in. I bought it as a floor model at Good Guys when it was closing so I lucked out of a warranty. It's been 3 years and the lamp just went out. I received the new lamp a couple of weeks ago, installed it, worked fine till the next morning when it started acting up. The tv would not turn on 50% of the time which would lead to the lamp indicator flashing red. I had the ballast replaced about a month ago before the lamp went out so I am unsure of what the problem is since the bulb and ballast are pretty much new. Also when the new lamp came in the cords seemed to be switched, flipped in a sense compared to the old lamp, but I was told that it would be fine as long as the lamp is the correct model. So the tv turns on, which makes me believe that the lamp and ballast are fine.
Any solutions or comments will be appreciated.
I called Service Care where I live they charged me $75 to come out ant $25 pick up and delivery charge. They took the television back to their shop and said they would have to order the parts needed. The tech called back and said the problem was the lamp & ballast was bad. He said the cost of repair would be $576 for parts and $225 for labor. Whew!!!!! I could just get another TV, just not another 52". Oh well......... any suggestion? v2kmom
