I replaced the projection lamp and the light flashed red 3 times after researching i found it was the projection door now the light just flashes red non stop


Hi,

There are usually several micro switches (little metal levers) inside the projection tv - most commonly by the lamp assembly and behind the lamp door.

It's possible either:

a) the lamp is not fully seated into position - ensure the lamp assembly is locked into position and that all screws have been secured, which will correctly close the micro switch.

b) the lamp door is slightly misaligned - ensure the door is aligned properly (do not force it) and all screws MUST be secured into place, which will correctly close the micro switch.

If the above items are in their correct positions, then you may need to test the 'continuity' of the switches (open & closed) using a multimeter, to determine whether you many have a faulty micro switch.


Hope this helps..

Tv does not swich on. The red led light plinks 5 times.


5 flashes, bad lamp and/or lamp driver
4 flashes, bad or stuck fan
There is a chance that the bulbs are not bad, but you will need a small fan to test this. Place a small fan blowing directly behind the set and run it for several minuts before turning the set on. This may help clear the code and allow you to watch tv if not then your lamp or driver has gone bad and needs replaced.

I believe the 5 flash error is for the lamp thermostat. It is located (I believe) on the right side of the lamp housing if you were looking from front. It is very small black square with white and gray wires covered in black sheeth. The only way to replace it is from the rear. you probobly need to do a thorough cleaning in there and thats why you've had the lamp, and thermo fail. Remember not to touch the lens of the lamp when working on it.

Refer to your owners manual on lamp replacement. Remove the old lamp and look at it. If it looks "blown" (like a flashbulb) then it is defenitely defective.

you cant test the lamp the only way for sure to know is if the lamp exploded and you can tell that by looking down inside the lamp, yes there are other things like ballest and engine lamp, sony also has a recall on some of the sets, however all that info is at work so i don't know if this set is one of them, contact me on Monday and i can tell you more.
