Question about Televison & Video
Thanks for using FixYa. The fault protection circuit has detected a fault and has turned the TV off. You'll need to check various things to find out which part is bad. Please check these---
1. Check for signal cables at the back and also try unplugging the TV for 8-10 hours to reset it.
2. Also check for any swollen/bulged capacitors on the power supply board. This happens due to overheating of capacitors.
3. If the capacitors are fine then you'll need to check for connectors on all the boards and also the fans if they are working fine.
4. Make sure the lamp connections are fine and ballast is not burnt.
Note-- Please make sure to turn off and unplug the TV for at least 1 hour (this will drain off current from all components especially capacitors) before you perform any repairs. Also note that the TV consists of very high voltages even when it is in OFF condition.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

I would say ballast or light bulb is faulty. Could be high voltage transformer but since you have audio, I would rule that out

First, you must figure out If your TV has component video inputs. This is a set of five cables (red, blue and green for video and red and white for audio) and will give you the best picture on an hdtv
Then, If your TV does not have the component video cables, you will be using the red white and yellow composite yellows the system came with. A very simple connection.
Last, If your TV does have the component video inputs, you will need to buy a set of the Nintendo Wii Component Video cables from Walmart, Target or any other gaming store. These will enable widescreen view and the best picture quality.
To connect your DVD player, you need to located the composite video inputs and s-video. Composite video is a yellow, female RCA jack, normally found next to two audio jacks, one red, the other white. The three jacks together provide an interface for audiovisual connections. The red RCA jack connects the right channel of a stereo system, while the white RCA jack connects the left. The yellow composite video jack rounds out the set.
When playing the Wii, you will need to be on the correct video input "Component"
When playing the DVD, you will be on "Composite/Svideo."
