Question about Televison & Video

Need help w/ HDTV

My 56" HD DLP (Vivitek) comes on at the push of the power button. But, after about 45 seconds, it shuts-off and starts blinking red & green on the tiny light next to the power button. WHY? What needs to be fixed? Repairmen want to charge almost $200 just to look at it. THEN, the fix will be more. The TV is almost 4-years old.

Have you ever replaced the lamp in the TV? Usually the owners manual will tell you what the flashing indicators mean on the front. The lamp would be my first suspect.

I hav e a vivitek 1080hd projector and it turns on for a couple of seconds then shuts off. it blinks a code of 62. 6 blue blinks of the power button then 2 red blinks of the ready button


That code indicates a fan-2 error. These projectors generate a lot of heat and depend on air circulation to keep everything cool. Make sure nothing is blocking the vents on the projector. Check the fan for lint and dust. Make sure fan spins freely and is operating correctly. Keep projector away from any other heat sources. Hope this helps.

It sound like you have a power supply fault caused by a display failure.
Without a service manual and test gear, I don't think there is much likelyhood of an effective repair.
Contact Samsung for a dealer in your area is my advice.
Hope that helps.

Viviteck 56''in.HDTV DLP TV. replaced with a new lamp bulb since I replaced this the tv wont come on only the sound for about 5 seconds then tv is silent again. any tips, Please.


The first thing to check on any TV that has a replaceable lamp is to make sure the lamp door is back on and seated correctly. You also need to make sure that the lamp is seated all the way in. The lamp door and in most cases the lamps have saftey switches they have to activate for the TV to work normal.

The tv will not come on . The power led is blinking 3 greens and then 2 reds. I have changed the light but still can not get the tv to do anything. I can't even shut the power off with the buttons.


Most likely its not the lamp thats bad but the color wheel is stuck. Check if the color wheel starts or not. You can make this out from the typical dlp switching on whine. If you have already changed the lamp, and there is no color wheel start noise, you have a bad color wheel.

Please help!!! Problem with JVC DLP TV


You need to replace the power supply board. The new ones have a bigger heat sink - obviously JVC knows about the problem because they made the new ones bigger. It cost $250 from JVC and I installed it myself - took about 3 hours to do. If you are not tech savvy call a repairman. Hope this helps.

Zenith DLP-Projection tv 42"


Try this solution which I found on Fixya

This solution is for the zenith 56" DLP. Unplug the tv, either from the wall socket or the TV. While the TV is unplugged hold the power button on the TV for 40 seconds. This lets the excessive power drain from the TV. If this does not work call 1-800-243-0000. This is the number for their help line. This is the fix the tech gave me and it worked right away. Hope this helps and have a great day.
