Question about Projection Televisions

Magnavox 50ml8105d/17 dlp 50

As seen in a few threads, when tv is powered on it shuts off within 2 minutes. 3 LED lights come on. Does this repeatedly. Burnt up my old bulb eventually(no cool down period). Fans are clean, bulb is new, unplugging does not help. About 6 other people in this site have same problem. Any ideas?

I am not sure but I have heard there is a software or firmware fix for this. I would contact magnavox support there may be a factory service bulletin on this issue. Sorry I couldnt be more help but havent worked on that chassis yet.

    There is a complaint board for that model seems alot of people are experienceing the same symptom with no response from magnavox. To me it sounds like a temp sensor is malfunctioning, those are usually mounted near or on the lamp compartment. The service info just doesnt seem available for this model, which in itself is strange, But none of my sources have that model available.However I will keep trying to locate some info for you.

It sounds like you have a bad color wheel. If you are handy with electronics, it is a pretty simple fix. If not, I would suggest you take your set to a qualified service center.

Replaced lamp in magnavox 50ML8105D/17 and now I only get sound for about 10 seconds with no picture then the tv shuts off


I would double check the install of the Lamp and also make sure the Lamp door is closed tightly and secure.
I hope this helps,

Magnavox model 50ML8105D/17 shuts down after only a few seconds and overheat and lamp failure lights come on , I`ve replaced the lamp , but the problem still occurs


We reduced the picture size to 4:3 and was able to get quite a bit more life out of the lamp, without it shutting down. It does take awhile to get use to. But is much better than a dust catcher

Shutdown


Try cleaning the air filter and see if that solves the problem.
