Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Assuming that they are blinking green 5 times you need to open the lamp door, make sure switch is in tied down position, take the lamp out and put it back in, close the door and see if the problem still exists then please revert with the model no# of the TV and also let me know which light is it that blinks 5 times so that I can further assist you. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.



Thanks

    5 blinks mean that there is an issue with lamp circuit.
    The fact that it was not able
    to start the unit and placed itself into protection and diagnosis mode
    indicates a failure.
    The lamp is fired by a hi-voltage ballast circuit
    that can fail.
    When the lamp is bad the ballast tries to fire the lamp
    with high voltage to light it, you should hear it arcing; it has a
    "snap" sound. However from what you have described i
    t seems
    that the ballast board has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Also the color
    wheel and the DM Board should be checked. Please do accept the solution if the
    issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.









    Thanks

No picture have sound timer light blinks .when you turn TV on lamp light come on. Goes off. Tv have sound for 10 min TV cut off type 62" Mitsubishi dlp


How old is your TV set ? if you have not replaced the lamp in 2-3 years that is most likely the problem and need to replace that part.
This lamps now run from $40.00 - $90.00 depending on quality.

I just replaced bulb with new and after a day there is a dark spot on the screen


I have the same TV - I have a dark spot in the upper left hand corner. I have always thought this TV was dark. Be sure to get OME lamp. Cheaper ones are not worth it and can damage your TV more.
dlplampsource,com--Just a note if this ever happens to you. TV would not come on in the AM-Had no picture, but had sound. It was not the lamp, but the safety switch. It's blue and at the bottom of the lamp housing. As soon as I flipped it and replaced the back cover, the TV came on.

Rca hdtv 52inch will play fine then picture goes black but still has sound.. after a few mins.picture will come back on , and will play fine could last all day or may go out again in a few mins.


My tv is relatively new, but the bad thing is that I had an old; big screen tube type rca model; home theatre, that was heavier than a car, and it went out, due to the cracking and popping sound, off sometimes, and back on.
What is strange is the new tv now, the hdtv, light weight, about five years old, is doing the same thing. Actually, now, the power will not even come on. The lcd green light in the front goes on and off.
Take no offense, but I thought I would not have these problems anymore. What do you suggest?

Power indicator only blinks green for several minutes, then...


I had identical problem which continued for months before the screen started to get dim then went completely black with only the audio remaining. This will happen when the lamp and or balast board starts to fail. You can buy replacement lamp off the internet and install it using only a screw driver. Your Sony manual provides instructions. Don't buy any of those cheap off brand lamps; light output might be low.

No Picture


Did you have color problems in past? Most of these sets have convergence problems. Amps goes out. But you should have seen some type of distortion from color, red,blue, green. If no color problems then maybe vertical ouput out or horizontal output bad.
