NEXT time it shuts down, press and hold both the input and menu buttons on the front of the set( for at least fice seconds) and count the blinks on the power light.

Let me know what you find (it will repeat the error code 5 times and then you have to unplug set and turn on again to regain it.0

    2,4 error code means "vertical circuit" problem.

    The set is detecting a loss of vertical deflection and shutting down to protect the picture tubes(a loss of sweep can burn a line in all three instantly) .

    The problem may be fixable in your home and is likely in one of two areas----

    1. bad solder connections on the main board where the vertical output IC is located.

    2. bad solder connections at any or all of the deflection yokes. Each picture tube has a fairly large assembly on the neck(black or gray plastic with a lot of copper wires ) which is the deflection yoke; Many of these sets where the wires leave the yoke are soldered into a tiny circuit board or connector and I have seen many with intermittent problems.

    It is hard to get at and can be examined with a tiny mirror; I had one in the shop two other shops had given up on and with the front inspection plate behind the front grill removed all I had to do was tap carefully (with the set on---dangerous!) and the second yoke when tapped on shut the set down.

    I ended up resoldering all three where the wires connected and since the customer was on vacation and would not be back for a month--just ran the set five or more hours a day to test it. It never failed again.

    The trouble could be at the yokes or on the main board but is most likely a physical problem--bad or poor connection rather than a bad part.

Hi Kimber,
The main reasons of your problem is the bulb which is already faulty to its end. The unit will automatically shuts off when it sense a bulb failure. But before you replace the bulb I would advice you to work first on itspower supply. Look for open fuse/fusible resistor and spot some bad solder joints. This will do the same symptoms like what it showing now. If you don't have necessary tools and test instruments, and can't do the job yourself, I would advice you to look for a professional to troubleshoot the problem. Don't attempt to work in the power supply if you don't know the safety precaution of handling it, there some stored electricity enough to hurt you with a little mistake only.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!

Thanks for using Fixya

LG 47" LCD shuts down several times w/ blinking red light.

Granger1212 we had the same problem. We called LG and although our LG was out of warranty by 4 months, we were asked to supply our proof of purchase and LG sent a serviceman to our home and in 2 days we had our television back working wonderfully. It's the power supply, call LG and BE NICE, I'm sure they will fix it.

I bypassed the safety switch (it was bad) and vacuumed and blew out all of the dust. So far with this set, 3 years old, I have replaced the bulb twice,it exploded both times, and the color wheel which also exploded! We love the picture but the next time it goes out, it goes out to the trash and I will purchase a top of the line LED/LCD set. No moving parts!!! Samsung designed and manufactured a whole bunch of lemon sets and will not admit it. I have found several hundred complaints about their DLP sets and only a few on other brands.

Phillips Ch # 27f007583 tv turns on with lines 1 inch apart across the screen, the brighten then shut down

You have a open resistor & maybe video ic on the CRT board this is the board connected on the picture tube. unplug this broad off of tube and see if set comes on and will stay on.this is a easy fix if you know how. cost to repair in shop should not be more then 75.00. ThankYou for using FixYa. Have a Nice Day.

My TV pictures turns black afetr a few hours but I still can hear sound perfectly!!!

It sounds like your rptv lamp is going out. If this is an older DLP this is most likely the cause. You can get a replacement at part number BP96-00224J for $151. If the tv is still under warranty, I would have them do it, otherwise replace it yourself. If so here is a link to give you step by step instruction. Please give me a good rating. ;-)
