Question about Vivitek V37835 46 in. LCD Television
The tv when turned only comes on for a minute then it flashes a yellow (on top right side of front) and then a green (under yellow flashing light) and it won't bring up the picture....HELP!!!!
You should have checked the troubleshooting section of your manual!! Okay, enough scolding. You need a new lamp. I do enjoy my Vivitek, but this is a definite downside of a DLP, especially if you watch a lot of TV. I am on my third lamp already, and they are NOT inexpensive. If you have your TV less than a year, your lamp may still be covered under warranty and may be replaced by Vivitek for free. If you have to buy your lamp, it can easily cost you over $200. This is the new lamp in a whole new assembly, which makes installing it EXTREMELY EASY and will just take a few moments. If you are a little more adventurous and want to save some money, you can buy the lamp alone. You then remove the lamp assembly from the television, open it up (there's several screws to remove), disconnect the old lamp, and reverse the process by making the proper connections with the new lamp and putting the new assembly back together and back into the television. It sounds more complicated than it is.. Biggest rule.-- don't touuch the surface of the lamp with your bare hands. You don't want your oils on the lamp. . And once you put everything back together and restart the TV, reset the timer for the lamp (the manual explains how). The lamp timer is very important for warning you of when to replace the lamp under ordinary conditions, when it does make it through its entire expected life. I don't know if it's appropriate to actually recommend specific vendors for the lamp, but I can if that's okay. email me midlomiss at yahoo dot com
