There was a recall on this, see your local Chevrolet dealer....
NOV 01, 2004
2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer
ON CERTAIN SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, VIBRATION AND HEAT MAY CAUSE THE TAIL LAMP/STOP LAMP BULB TO LOOSEN IN ITS SOCKET. IF THIS OCCURS, THE BULB MAY FLICKER AND EVENTUALLY BECOME INOPERATIVE.
AN INOPERATIVE BRAKE LAMP WILL NOT CONVEY THE DRIVER'S INTENTION OF STOPPING TO DRIVERS IN FOLLOWING VEHICLES, AND AN INOPERATIVE REAR TURN SIGNAL LAMP WILL NOT CONVEY THE DRIVER'S INTENTION TO TURN TO DRIVERS IN FOLLOWING VEHICLES. BOTH OF THESE FAILURES CAN INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH.
DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE TAIL LAMP/STOP LAMP ASSEMBLIES, AND IF NECESSARY, REPLACE THEM. THE RECALL BEGAN ON NOVEMBER 22, 2004. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT CHEVROLET AT 1-800-630-2438, OLDSMOBILE AT 1-800-630-6537, BUICK AT 1-866-608-8080, OR GMC AT 1-866-996-9463.

Hello The lamp ballast board should be faulty. This is a common problem with most of the DLP TVs. But before replace it, it hould be checked properly and if there is any chance to repair it, get it repaired. If found irreparable, replace the board. To check this board you should have its schematic diagram to follow and to find the faulty component. If you want anymore assistance from me, come over me by Fixya, by buying any one Mitsubishi TV service, which as been advertised with FixYa. I can't send any PDF files by this window as this window does not allow me to upload PDF files by it. When you buy my service, Fixya will provide a link between us to communicate each other. Picture of the suspected board is given here for your reference.
Set your thermostat to "ON". If the system continues to shut off and resumes later then you have an electrical failure within the unit or its just cluttered with junk. Check through the vent holes visually for debri. If there is enough to cause concern, remove the nuts holding the grill above the fan once you have flipped the breaker for the unit. (you definately dont want that thing kicking on with your arm inside)
if the unit stays on then you have a bad thermostat.
also pay attention to the temp of the exterior unit, if it gets too hot to touch then that is a sign of an electrical component failure and needs to be diagnosed through more troubleshooting
Generally, if the AC adapter for the system's LED goes out when connected to the system, check the battery and see if it is holding a a charge (Press the button next to the LEDs on the battery see if all 5 light up) If the battery still has power, then most likely there is a failure of the motherboard.
If you can, try another Dell D-series AC adapter and see if the same thing occurs. If the system powers on, replace the AC adapter, if not it is a motherboard.
This unit probably has a bad power supply. It may also be shutting down because if this unit has recorded 5 lamp errors it goes into shut down. To eliminate lamp errors you can force the unit on in the service mode and look for lamp errors. To do this, you unplug the unit, and while depressing the volume up and channel down buttons at the same time, plug the unit in. Hold for 1 second and release. The unit will then power on and a small k should appear on the screen. If this does not happen then there is definately an internal failure that will require a sharp auth. service center. If the unit does come on with the k, use the remote and press the channel up button. This will produce a menu on the screen and you will note on line will indicate lamp errors. On the right side of that line will show the # of lamp errors. If it reads 0, lamp errors are not the issue, however if it reads 5, you can highlight that line by using the channel down button. Then use the curser right arrow to select the error and then again to reset them. Once the lamp errors have been reset to 0, unplug the unit and wait at least 25 seconds before plugging in. The unit will now power up normally and this may cure the problem for good. If this process corrects the problem and it occurs some time later or right away that will be an indication that either the unit has bad backlights or inverter has failed and will again require service.
