Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My 10 year old 'dinosaur' Rear Projection TV has decided to not give me a picture anymore.When I turn it on a red light appears (which is normal) but then I go to turn it on using the remote and the green light next to the red light starts to flash (the green light that flashes has the 'timer' symbol above it.I'm wondering if I have activated the timer some how so that is why it doesn't work at the moment. Or has it finally kicked the bucket???!!!Please please help as repairers are telling me it will cost an arm and a leg to even come out and see it. Kind Regards Caroline

    Hi there thanks for that answer. You mentioned that the flashing of the power light indicates a problem,but it was actually the green timer light that was flashing. Does this mean the same thing?? Thanks once again. Caroline

Caroline, i am sorry to hear you troubles, and i don`t have any good news for you, the flashing of the power light indicates a fault and its more than just replacing a fuse, there are many protection circuits in your TV to prevent an even more costly repair and one of them is not happy. sorry

    do you have a user manual ? if so check out the description for the timer programing, although the power button should override any timer functions you may have programed

Sounds like your regulator ic is about to go, not an expensive repair but you have a good thought about buying a new set. If your fluid has never been changed I bet it's due also. Give the choice serious thought.

Bad picture


A 10 year old Rear Projection tv is usually at the end of its life. No such thing as "fluid". Best advice, get a new TV.

TV doesn't turn on


You really should give make & model number when posting, it helps us immensely, your lamp and possibly the ballast is bad, start with a new lamp first, odds are very good that it will fix your problem, can`t help more without manufacturer and model number, good luck, ps, order the original lamp, generics are junk and a waste of your money.
