Question about LG RU-44SZ51D 44" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
I have an LG LCD TV (model number 26LXD). Now when the unit is off (or standby) the led on the front of the tv is a steady red. On power up it flashes green and then stays green. I just came home from a short vacation to find the led flashing red (non stop) and I cannot power up the unit. I tried unplugging it and let it set for a few minutes, nothing. I tried a different plug, wall socket to no avail. Now there was a fan running constantly in the unit even after power down (had been doing that for some 8 months) now that fan is not running. Anyway, could it be that, that fan burned out and has caused the unit to not power up? Or is it something else? and what does the flashing red light mean? Thanks for any and all help.
Could be your Ballast Board that fires up lamp or Fan is bad that cools Lamp there is also a Fan mounted up under Light Engine if it stops running set will not come on. CK Fan Behind lamp first if it is OK then replace Ballast Go to E-Bay for Best Deal on that part .

I have had this same problem twice in the past 3 months. So far both times I've been able to get it back after a week or two. I'm not sure what works, but unplugging and detaching the antenna and cable and waiting a few days seems to be the key. In both instances, I unplugged it for a few days then plugged it in for a few days and repeated the processes until I eventually got the steady red led. Both times prior to the red led the led would flash red then green and make a clickiing noise for several hours before I was able to get it working again.

well i know what the problem is... if your getting the white scroll and then the red light flashes but the fans are comming on and you got a new bulb the broblem is the ballast. i know cuz i had the same problem and a good friend of mine has a tv shop and i had him look at it but the good news is that its not that hard to change. if you try to go through LG thay wont be able to sell you the ballast if your just a coust. good news is that you can fined the ballast on ebay from easywaylamps its about $130.00 bucks shiped. bud news about is that thay are from china(it is where i got mine) but it works great and hasent gave me a broblem yet. if any one eles has the same problem and it was something eles.... PLEASE POST IT. i hope my info has been helpful to someone.... thanks Brad Ross of East Moline Illinois

SOURCE: tv wont turnon afterstandby
LG will sell you a new lamp. It may resolve the problem but just as likely it's the contacts where the lamp unit plugs to the TV. There's a few types of connectors. The early ones are dodgy and cause the problem you describe. A faulty lamp can also cause it though.

Five blinks - AKB
circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks
for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function.
Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761
and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on
the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning
up screen A2 slightly.
