LED Indications

The front panel Status LED provides an indication of

the set's operation and the possible cause of a malfunction.

If an abnormal condition is indicated, perform the

Self Diagnostics procedure.

Self Diagnostics

To activate, press the front panel <ACTIVITY> &<CH

??> buttons at the same time and hold for 5 seconds.

The STATUS LED will then flash denoting a two digit

code.

• The number of flashes indicates the value of the

MSD (tens digit) of the Error Code.

• The flashing then pauses for approximately 1/2

second.

• The LED then flashes indicating the value of the

(ones digit) of the Error Code.

• The Error Code is repeated a total of 5 times.

Example: If the Error Code is "23", the LED

will flash two times, pause, and then flash three

times.

Table 2-2: LED Indications

Error Codes, descriiptions and the most likely cause of

the error are listed in Table 2-3.

Note: The TV must be in "Shut Down." The LED

will probably be indicating an abnormal

condition. If the TV is switched Off, AC is

removed, or a System Reset is performed, the

code automatically resets to "12" No Error.

See the Error Code Log to retrieve a history of

errors.

Note: Use the front panel buttons, not the remote

control.

Note: If there is no response, the front panel may be

locked by a V-Chip setting. To unlock, press

and hold <ACTIVITY> on the front panel for

8 seconds.

LED Indication Condition

Off Off (standby)

Green Power On

Slow Blink Green Power Off with Timer Set

Fast Blink Green (80 seconds) > Off Power Off (Cooling fan still working, 80 sec)

LED Indication Condition

Red Lamp Failure

Yellow TV Too Hot

Slow Blink Red TV May Require Service

Slow Blink Yellow Lamp Door Open or No Lamp Installed

NORMAL INDICATIONS
ABNORMAL INDICATIONS (For details perform Self Diagnostics Procedure.)

TV will not power on


Inspect the lamp again. When you replace it, make sure you DO NOT TOUCH the glass. Make sure all doors and covers are securely in place before you turn it on.
As a rule, expensive lamps have a very short life.

I replaced the lamp in my Sony E50A10 and the tv still doesn't power up.The indicator flashes red.Any ideas?


if its the lamp indicator flashing its an issue with the lamp. If the lamp is new I would double check to see if its making contact completely when its slid in often the pins can get bent slightly. If it were the ballast the power indicator would blink 5 times.

After replacing lamp tv cuts off immediately after being turned on


When the set shuts off, there should be some indications on the front such as teh lamp or temp indicators. Are any of those lit or flashing? Recheck to make sure that all access doors are completely closed. There are interlocks that will shutdown the set built in so that if the doors are not closed, the set will shut down.

For further information, please provide us with the model number so we can supply details specific to your set.

Thanks,
Dan

I have a LG RU-44SZ61D DLP TV and recently replaced the bulb. After about two months the TV went really dim and then started shutting off. The problem increased to the point where you couldnt have the tv...


DLPs have flow chart trouble shooting techniques to pinpoint exactly why your set isnt completeing the boot sequence. If you would like the service manual for your model let me know and i will post a link where you can purchase a complete one.
