5 yr old tv goes through cycle and tries to come on, eventually does but after many tries.


My sony did almost the exact same thing. I removed the bulb & cleaned all the dust out of the cooling ducts & the screen on the bulb was full of dust. That bought me about a month, then I replaced the bulb & haven't had a problem since(over a year ago). Just make sure you NEVER touch the glass of the new bulb with your hands,oil on your skin will greatly shorten the bulb life! I found a bulb at a local electronics store for under $200.00... don"t forget to clean dust from cooling ducts,& make sure cooling fan is working, bulb gets extremely hot!

Periodically my 52HM95 would have some little electrical glitch where it would not come on when I turned the tv on. I would have to wait a little while before I tried again, or I could shut the power off...


I have a similar DLP TV. If you losing your new bulbs that quickly there is likely a problem with cooling. There is a fan that keeps bulb cool. Make sure the fan is working and there is nothing blocking the air passages. I have not had a problem with my fan but you should be able to find a replacement at Radio Shack or a computer/electronics store like MicroCenter. They come in standard sizes just make sure the voltage is correct typically 120 VAC or 12 VDC.
I have had the computer inside crash such that the sound would work, the bulb would come on, put no picture. Fixed by unplugging the TV for one minute then plug in and turn on.
The bulb repeatedly goes through its startup cycle but never comes on. It tries about ten times then stops. Fixed by removing the bulb housing and firmly tapping it on a counter top ten times. This was at Toshiba instructions over the phone and it actually worked.

I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.

the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.

A solution to this would be greatly appreciated.

Problem with Toshiba DLP Projection TV Model #52HM84


It is possible the lamps may be defective or that they may be the wrong replacement for this model, as it may have a different wattage setup with the ballast. If you want to try to order the TB25 lamp from a different vendor, you can order the original Toshiba replacement lamp for this model (52HM84) from a major Toshiba parts distributor at the link below:

Sony Grand Wega 55" LCD ml # KDF-55WF655 goes protective shutdown


This is the lamp going bad. For some reason, it doesn't spit out that lamp error, it just keeps refiring the lamp and it just cycles forever. When the lamp totally fails, you will get the lamp led lit. Replace the lamp to resolve.

XL-2100U lamp cycles on and off


Hi

I recently had a similar problem after replacing my lamp the set would work for 22 mins then go into standby for 30 sec then come back on, then repeats, I decided to experiment with the lamp housing, I removed the new lamp, unscrewed the top of the lamp that holds the actual bulb then switched out the main housing (bottom part) with the original housing, that seemingly has corrected my problem, you may want to try if the replacement lamp did not come from Sony...good luck
