POWER LIGHT BLINKS 5 TIMES

THE POWER LIGHT BLINKS 5 TIMES. IT SAYS IN THE MANUAL THAT IF THAT LIGHT BLINKS 3 THAT THE LAMP IS NOT IN CORRECTLY. IT DOESNT SAY ANYTHING ABOUT BLINKING 5 TIMES. YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT THE BLINKING OF 5 TIMES MEANS?

    Had the same problem. On/standby lamp blinking 5 times.



    TV would be on for minute or two with sound, then go "off" for a minute or two, then repeat this cycle endlessly.



    It was the lamp - needed to be replaced - really easy - couple of screws. I think the usable life is ~4,000 hours - ours had 6,100.

    well thanks for all the input. my tv was still was under warranty. the tech. came to my house, i told him what was happening. he opened up the tv from the front where the lamp is at. he pulled it out and the bulb was out. replaced it and back to new again. damn if i didnt have that warranty, it would of cost me just for the bulb $250.00 and thats not even counting labor. labor would of been another $100.00 in something. so the word for today is "WARRANTY" lol thank god i purchased it!



    thanks again for the input. it definetly helped when i called it in so i could give them an idea on what was wrong.

That's the LA-3 LCD projection unit. 5 blinks on that model means a lamp driver error. You would need the service manual to diagnose exactly whats wrong with the system. I have included a link where you can get the entire 121 page service manual for your set if you would like it. It cost 15.99 and they will email it to you and provide free support to help you diagnose it. Here is the link if you would like the service manual.

Tv doesnt show anything


Got (if model listed is correct) any blinking lights?

Set has a self check:

Here's something that might also be useful. After you turnon the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device andMenu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.
For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.
Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:
12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filtercover is open.
34 = Lamp abnormality
36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 = Lamp Temperature High
39 = DMD Temperature High
41 = Short is detected
44 = DVI cablebetween FMT and Engine disconnected

Hi there,
5 blinks means there is a problem with the video board. It could be as simple as unplugging everything, includding power. Wait 3 minutes then plug power only back in. Or it may be a damaged component that requires replacing.
Hope this helps

Hi,
This tv has 3 indicator lights on front, Power, Lamp and Temp
I assume Temp light is blinking 5 times after every 5 seconds, if that is correct then it is problem of clogged air filter located in light engine that need to be cleaned.
Below is an image of light engine and air filters locations are marked with red circle, it is job of professional to fix this issue because complete light engine need to be take out from tv cabinet.
Hope these info will help you, let me know if you have additional question or need service manual copy if you want to repair tv by yourself.
Thanks.

3 flashing lights


the 3 blinking LEDs mean the lamp may be defective. Be sure the lamp is making contact with the sockets within the lamp compartment, also make sure the lamp is the correct one for your model. The set can be reset by unpluggimg the power cord for 5 minutes then plug it back in, if the 3 LEDs still blink check the lamp if its making contact and its the correct lamp for your model, suspect the ballast

My RCA HD50LPW175yx7 is blinling five(5) times and then shuts off


i have the same t.v. the owners manual says "if the light blinks 5 times, pauses, and blinks again 5 times, the lamp is trying to turn on.If the t.v. does'nt turn on after 5 minutes and the light blinks steadily for 1 minute , one of the following is possible: lamp door is open , lamp is dead , or the power supply within the t.v. needs service.

Rear projection tv turns off after 3 seconds, power indicator blinks 3 times at 5 second intervals.


Most times 3 blinks is the defective lamp code. See your owners manual for instructions on changing the lamp.
