Question about LG RU-44SZ61D 44" TV

1 Answer

Is my lamp out on my LG?

I've had this set for about 3 years. Once in a little, over the past year, I would hit the power button and it would take a little while, longer than usually for the screen to appear. Sometimes it would try for a while and shut off. I unplugged the tv and pushed power and it would start. The other morning I turned on the tv and it started as normal but the screen was darker, and stayed that way for a bit. I turned it off then back on again and it started and was fine. I walked away for a minute and came back to a blank screen but with sound. Then it immediately shut off. I tried for hours to start it up again, but it just keep in stand-by mode for a minute then shut down. There is only the one power supply light on, it's flashing when trying to start. The light indicator is off, but if I recall, had always been on. Also when it's trying to start up, there's a wierd screeching sound for a second and seems to occur twice while starting up.

Please help. I don't want to call a service man out and spend another $500 to repair it. I've read it could be the lamp.

    Thank you. I'll try the light first and see if the screen comes back.

Most likely you can have 1 or 2 problems.
1! the light is busted and you will have to replace that. You might also need to check your cooler fan bearing as you indicate it makes noise.

TV Rarely Starts


Check all the solder terminal at its main power regulator section circuit. Any loose solder terminal can poise this type of problem. Resolder all the suspected solder terminals by applying a little more solder. If you wish to get more details, check this site.

TV model number is M61WH745 it keeps blowing the blube this will be the 4th one in 5 years


first the correct model # is M61wh74s.
there are two differnet lamps that may have been installed at the time of manufacture. you should remove the lamp access door and use the lamp part # printed on the label pasted to the inside of the access door. To use any other or a sub (which are only good for about a year) will down grade the brill of the picture and cause undue load on the ballast (supply cirucit for the lamp). Additionally if you are in an area that experiences frequent brown outs (power reduction to the home) I strongly suggest using a UPS (uninterruptable power supply) to power your DLP TV.

I own a Samsung HL-R5067W 50'' DLP. Set is about 3 years old. Recently I heard a loud pop while viewing, picture distorted, but never went blank. I turned set off. When turned on again a loud whining noise...


Check your color wheel. There is a DIY guide for replacing the color wheel. Mine did the same thing yours is and my color wheel was all busted up. Unfortunately after replacing the color wheel my set continues to do the same thing, but this could mean I need to replace the ballast as well.

If you could change channels with a remote, you probably don't have, and never had, a dial which you rotated to change channels. There should be buttons on the front of the set, one or two of which will change the set from game mode to tv receive mode. Turn the set on and just try pushing one button at a time until you hit the right one. If you don't see any such buttons, there is a panel on the front that is covering them. Either open the panel by hand or push on the panel and it will spring open and reveal the buttons.
Good Luck.

How to remove black box from screen.....


I think that is the closed caption box. as you look at the front of the tv the ears are for up and down and the face is the menu button. hit the face once the menu will come up . then hit the down button to get to the close caption. then hit the up volume key to enter close caption. from there turn close caption off then hit the face key and that should do it.

Samsung hl-r5067w 50" DLP no picture


I have a solution for The United States of America! "If We Don't Make It, We Don't Need It".

Personally, I believe if we went back to actually manufacturing things in this country and stopped importing everything, a lot of these problems would STOP!

Think about it America!
