Slow to No picture

The picture will appear only after the tv has been on for 4-5 hours. The controls on the set or remote don't work. Can't turn the tv on by the cable remote main button only by the cable button. The sound will work only through the Home Theater System. Will get sound not picture. HELP PLEASE.

What is the make and model number of your tv. Iclude cassis number if it is a RCA, Phillips/ magnavox. Need that info in order to even begin to offer any suggestions as to what may be happening with your set.

Do the ballast first. That should get the picture back. The main board controls everything else.

I have an lg projection tv model #RU-48SZ40. I needed to change the lamp, when I was done and turned the tv back on...the orange warning light was still lit. I then tried unplugging the tv, pulled the lamp...


What you need is to have the lamp timer reset. To do so, perform the following;

You will need two hands.

With the remote, press and hold down the "mute" button.

Simultaneously press and hold down the "enter" button on the front of the TV.

After about 5 seconds, a box will appear that shows the total number of hours on the lamp. To reset these hours, press the right arrow button on the remote. After doing so, another box will appear with a confirmation question and an icon for which button on the remote to press to reset the lamp hours.

Exactly same problem just happened today! Only power button on the TV set and remote control works, no sound


I had this problem happen to me today. What i did was unplug the tv for an hour and when i plugged it back in, the first time setup appeared on the tv. The remote and the tv buttons worked fine after that. Hopefully that works for you too.

Reseting the lamp meter on tv


1) Press the POWER button to turn your TV on. Make sure you are set to Cable/TV reception. If the "replace lamp. Reset Lamp timer" notice appears, press "EXIT" on your remote.
2) Press and hold the VOLUME DOWN BUTTON on the TV set (not the remote, the actual TV set)
3) Continue to press and hold the VOLUME DOWN button and press and hold the PIP (Picture in Picture) or SPLIT/PLAY button on your REMOTE control (your are pressing and holding BOTH of these buttons at the same time now).
4) After 5 or 10 seconds (be patient), the lamp serice menu will appear and say your lamp counter has been rest to '0' (zero). That's it, you are all done.

Now, I continue to have the power shut off after a few minutes of play. I think it is a problem with the cooling fan. Damn it all anyway.
