A common cause is a short occurred in the electron gun of the CRT. This usually causes collateral damage to support components in the CRT drive circuits.

The set will require proper shop service to determine the exact failure. I personaly would not invest any money in a set of this age. I would consider replacing it with a new LCD type.

Samsung model hlt4675sx\xaa projection tv wont work. the stand by/temp light flashes red and the lamp light flashes green? it makes the sound that it makes when it turns on but no picture. we looked at the...


It could be the temp sensor going bad. This sensor sits on top of the metal housing which the bulb assembly slides into. The bulb assembly will have a hole on top and this is where the sensor is above. There is a small blue and white wire that plugs into it. If you pull the wire out and put a paper clip or wire in the coupling you will basically bypass the sensor connecting the blue and white wire. If your tv turns on then that is your problem. Its cheap too. Here were my symptoms..1] Turn tv on 2] Bulb would light up..(which eliminates the ballast) regular picture would show up (which eliminates the bulb and color wheel) 3] 30 seconds later tv would shut down with 3 flashing lights. After bypass the tv turned on as always and hasnt shut down yet. Always un plug tv first. Get the replacement part to avoid overheating and possible fire

Pressed power, heard the unit turn on, heard the tv show sound for a moment then it went into standby mode and the red light flashes six times, then pauses, six times then pauses, over and over and over. ...


Either your power supply is bad and needs replaced, or their is other circuitry issues. Bets to have a trained technician look at this and give you a quote for repair, it might be cheaper in the long run to replace the set.

Sounds like the color wheel may have also gone bad. I recently saw a 56" Samsung where the bulb and color wheel went at the same time. The color wheel could produce a crying noise while trying to spin up.

The set is shutting down because a problem has been detected. Replacing the remote will not help. Count the flashes and call a JVC servicer to get an idea about what the specific problem may be.

TV keeps shutting off


It sounds like you have a power supply problem. The power supply is going into "shut-down". When this happens you have to un-plug the set to allow the charge to "bleed off" from the power supply in order for it to try to re- start. You may have a loose connection or a component getting hot causing your problem. It's difficult to exactly tell what is happening without making tests in the circuits. Your best bet is to have it checked by a technician. Stargazer
