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.

Hope this helps:

Resetting the counter Once you have installed your OEM replacement lamp, resetting the counter is a very simple procedure:
• Begin with the TV powered off.
• Point your remote towards your TV.
• Press:
• Menu + 1 + 8 + 2 + Power.
• Your TV set should now say "Loading Factory".
• Browse down to "Option" then press Enter (or the right cursor button).
To exit the service menu, hit press the EXIT button or just turn off your TV (remember not to turn on your TV immediately afterward!).
NOTE: The Mute+1+8+2 buttons needs to be pressed down consecutively and fairly quickly. If your TV does not enter the service menu after using this combination, you can substitute MENU instead of MUTE. This seems to work for some sets. Also, the right cursor arrow also acts as the ENTER button, so try it if you're having difficulty with the ENTER button.

TV hit by lightning. Will Best Buy replace without questions?


Ask and see but I would not mention the lightening---if its 3 months old the LG warranty should cover the repair or replacement.

They will not know at all it was lightening unless you tell them.

"This thing just stopped working" they will either get it fixed or get you a replacement set.

Is your girlfriend's television higher resolution? If so, the ps3 may be configured to output a signal that is too high for your mitsubishi. With the ps3 off, insert either the component or the rgb to the back. The turn on the main ps3 power switch so that the red led turns on. then hold down the 'power on' button. it will beep initially, then beep after about 3 seconds. This simply resets the output to the connected cable in a normal resolution.

If this fails go to settings>video output> and play around with the settings there. note you may have to do this on ur girlfriends tv to be able to see what you're doing...

Check the bulb again and look at the root of where the main stem comes out inside and be sure you don't see any bubble like appearence around the stem at the bottom there. If you do see this then the bulb is bad. Otherwise try this: Hold volume down on front of unit and pip on remote for about 5 seconds. Message will come on screen that timer has been reset to zero. This sets the lamp timer to 0

How do I set date and time?


  1. To set the current date and time, press and hold down the SET/EDIT button for 2 seconds, let go and the Month (M) and Day (D) indicators will start flashing.
  2. While the Month (M) and Date (D) indicators are flashing press the LOCK button to cycle through the 3 available date formats.
  3. Once you have chosen an appropriate date format, press the SHIFT button to switch between each of the different DATE, MONTH, YEAR, HOUR and MINUTE fields. The field that is currently active will start flashing. To change a field's value press the LOCK button, each stroke of the Lock button moves one value up.
  4. Once you are finished setting the Date and Time press the SET/EDIT button to return to normal display.
Note: If you go past the current year, you will need to press the LOCK button to cycle through the year 2189, and back up to the current year. Be cautious when setting the year

Replaced lamp on Hitachi 50V720, still have flashing red light


Just make sure the Box (Lamp Enclosure) is pushed in firmly on both sides, left and right. Left side to hit the power connection and Right side to hit the little relay switch, Must be flush against that back side. It happened to me and I was kicking myself in the ***, a entire weekend went by with a brand new lamp sitting in the enclosure but not completely set in correctly with a flashing red light.

No picture on my 62" DLP Mitsubishi


I am not sure what the problem is, but usually if a lamp is bad, the other 2 lamps will still function. Since you are getting no picture at all, I am thinking it is a circuit board problem. TV electronics are expected to last 3-5 years. After that, many components will start to go out one by one. If you have your tv repaired, I would replace the whole circuit boards instead of just the bad component. The power board is the #1 board I would replace 1st. This is the most stressed board and will cause most of your tv problems.
