Question about Hitachi 50V500 50 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

Lamp Light keeps blinking

I just bought a replacement lamp and the red light keeps blinking - it is like the TV doesn't recognize the new lamp - I found this answer, but how do I do this?

"It must be a red light flashing as the 50V500 has no green lights on it. Make sure that when you place the lamp cover back on that it is activting the micro switch behind it. Otherwise the set will assume the door is open and won't ignite the lamp. Otherwise the ballast could be the issue."

Red/green lights both blink and tv will on turn on


Are the red and green lights blinking at the same rate or not? If the green light is blinking every 3 seconds and the red light is blinking every 1/2 second, the lamp door is not properly secured. If both lights are blinking at 1 second intervals, try replacing the lamp. If a new lamp doesn't solve the problem, the TV needs service.

I hope this helps.

Tv light standby red just keeps blinking after replacing bulb


Hi,
If red light was not blinking before lamp replacement and after that it start blinking 3 times then pause for three seconds and again blink, check lamp cover that has not been fixed on tv or it is not fixed/ seated correctly there.
Lamp cover is first thing that you removed from tv to replace lamp.
Hope these info will help. If red light is blinking other than 3 times, let me know how many times it is blinking along with tv model number written at rear to provide you helpful info.
Thanks.

New lamp is placed in tv, but tv won't come on. Light in front of power button is blinking green, then blinks red. Not sure what the problem is


One question, why you decided to replace lamp in tv? Did tv showed red lamp light blinking?
Suggestion, make sure lamp cover has been placed back in its position after lamp replacement, lamp cover is first thing that you removed from tv cabinet to take out lamp.

I HAVE A MISUBSHI TV MODEL #WD57734. THE TV WENT OUT AND THE LAMP LIGHT CAME ON. i REPLACED THE LAMP AND KNOW THE LAMP LIGHT AND POWER LIGHT ARE BLINKING AND IT WONT TURN ON.


Try resetting the set, there is a reset on the front of the tv where the power button is located, just stick the point of an ink pen it it and it will reset itself, if this does not work make sure the lamp door is secure.

KDF-50a12U Powers off then standby light blinks 3 times


Please recheck Lamp Cover and make sure it is fixed in its space securely as 3 times red blink shows lamp cover error.
There is small safety switch in TV cabinet under lamp cover that has to be pushed by lamp cover if it is fixed in its position properly. That switch is not being pressed by lamp cover and causing this error.
Thanks.

No video no sound red standby light continous blinking once per second


Red Lamp light might be blinking in your TV, that means TV needs new lamp as existing lamp inside TV is broken or dear.
Please replace lamp in your Sony KDS-55A2000 TV and lamp replacement procedure is written in user manual.
Let me know if you need user manual copy.
Thanks.

Hitachi 55VG825 rear proj television blinking light and screen doesn't light up


Refer to owners manual ! Blinking indicates the type of fault that is occuring on all your tv sets. example : power light on red - indicator light beside it green but blinks rapidly for half a second rapidly then shuts off. This refers to a faulty lamp or a lamp that is near its expiration. Read your manuals if indicators refer to easy repair sweet, but if it says call tech then bummer...
