Trying to replace lamp in HDTV and having trouble. Does not function correctly after putting in new bulb. Boots up and then visuals go black and the green power light keeps flashing. Help?

Panasonic DLP TV Bulbs

Make sure its an original Osram or Philips bulb inside the housing. If its a cheap lamp it will act this way. If it is an original lamp, then you may have a power supply issue. It shouldn't affect your TV but you may want to try resetting the lamp timer by following the instructions that came with the lamp.

While pressing the VOL- button on the projection display, hold down the number 0 button on the remote control at the same time for more than 5 seconds.

Blue clouds on screen, already replaced main bulb still getting worse. Please help.

Light Engine is Bad, Sony had alot of these that went bad. Sony Offers replacement TVs if this is the case. Go to Facebook and then type in I HAVE A DEFECTIVE SONY TV. Sony has a FB account and they will get back to you about a replacement TV. Sometimes they will offer you a 55inch LCD in replacement on the old DLPs.

Replaced main bulb in front but lamp button on front of tv is still blinking and tv won't show picture

The lamp timer on the Hitachi projector must be reset whenever the lamp has been replaced. The "Lamp" indicator on the display will light red or the "Change the Lamp" message will display when the lamp timer needs to be reset. Hitachi recommends that the lamp timer never be reset without replacing the lamp and to always reset the timer when the lamp is replaced. The message functions of the projector will not function properly if the lamp timer is not correctly reset.

  • Turn the power on. Press the "Reset" button for three seconds until the "Lamp xxxx hr" message appears on the lamp timer on the bottom of the screen.

  • 2

    Press the "Menu" button on the remote control while the lamp timer is displayed.

  • 3

    Press the left arrow button. Select "0" and wait until the timer display clears.

    I have Sony Grand Wega KDF-55E2000. While my 3 year grandchild was visiting she was playing with remote and now I have System Status and Path A Status screen displayed that I can't remove. Please help!!!!

    The easiest way is by resetting the tv itself back to the factory setting.Just unplug,replug the tv back like about an hour later.This should remove itself.

    Bulb is most likely OK. Original bulb in Sony TV is Philips, label on bulb usually says Philips. Sony don't make bulbs. Sony Cost is usually 1.5 times other sources. Many shopping cart operations sell condemned, reject or poor quality electronic service items because cost of return and fooling with them is excessive. This is obvious and widespread with convergence ICs and other parts.

    Lamp timer needs reset. This is usually an automatic function. TV detects Increased lamp current from previous failed bulb or weak bulb condition and resets automatically. TV must be unplugged for lamp replacement for this to work. Occasionally it must be reset manually, as below:

    1. TV must be in standby mode. (Power off).
    2. Press the following buttons on the Remote Commander within a
    second of each other:
    DISPLAY Channel 5 Volume + POWER .1. Access Service Adjustment Mode and select the Service Menu that
    contains the Category with the Adjustment Item you want to change.
    2. To change the Category, press 2 or 5 on the Remote Commander.
    Note: Pressing 2 or 5 only changes the categories within the
    Service Menu displayed. To change a Category on one of the other
    Service Menus, press the JUMP button until the correct Service
    Menu is displayed.
    3. To change the Adjustment Item, press 1 or 4 on the Remote
    4. To change the Data Value, press 3 or 6 on the Remote
    Note: To go back to the last saved Data Value, press 0 then ENT
    on the Remote Commander to read the memory.
    5. To save the changes, press MUTING then ENT to write into
    6. To exit service mode, turn the power off by pressing POWER .
    Wait 2 minutes before restarting the set to allow the fans to
    completely shut down or the Service Menu will appear on the screen.

    Have you reseted the lamp timer of your tv? if not, you should do it, because it's just adding more and more hours to it to the ones it already had and it's indicating the tv that the lamp is going out, reset the lamp timer and you should be fine, if not, it's probable you might have a defective ballast which are not expensive, they're way cheaper than a lamp, they're running around 70 dlls
