Question about Panasonic Televison & Video

When I turn on the unit, the power button flashes green, but then flashes red. I changed the bulb, but get the same result. If I keep turning the set back on after it flashes red, it may stay green and produce a picture after 14 to 30 minutes.

When I turn on the unit, the power button flashes green, but then flashes red. I changed the bulb, but get the same result.

Hi, that indicates that an internal fault has been detected. In theory you will need to call the service number listed on the user manual to get a technician to test your TV.

If I keep turning the set back on after it flashes red, it may stay green and produce a picture after 14 to 30 minutes.

That is the symptom of the fault. Here common faults that can cause the problem:

1- PSU - This is main power board. The power board uses a set of large electrolytic capacitors to stabilize power by storing a certain quantity of charge. Usually when one of the capacitors fail you get this problem. The TV starts only sometimes, when the still good capacitors are completely discharged and can barely compensate the containment job done by the defective component. Try leaving the TV power cord disconnected for one hour or two and see it TV restarts, that is one symptom of this kind of problems.

2 LCD TV only - The inverter may also cause protect light (red light), with occasional startup. Here general steps to test the inverter:Before proceeding I assume you have technical training.

3 Rear projection only. The convergence IC and ballast board failures can cause the same problem.

Try leaving the TV power cord disconnected for one hour, check power outlet grounding and restart TV with no device attached. If the problem persists, then the TV must be tested at component level, starting from the power adapter.

Trying to replace lamp in HDTV and having trouble. Does not function correctly after putting in new bulb. Boots up and then visuals go black and the green power light keeps flashing. Help?

Panasonic DLP TV Bulbs

Make sure its an original Osram or Philips bulb inside the housing. If its a cheap lamp it will act this way. If it is an original lamp, then you may have a power supply issue. It shouldn't affect your TV but you may want to try resetting the lamp timer by following the instructions that came with the lamp.

TY-LA1001 Timer reset

While pressing the VOL- button on the projection display, hold down the number 0 button on the remote control at the same time for more than 5 seconds.

Fujitsu airon ASTA24LCC 2 flashes green and red then 5 red flashes any idea what it means

Had similar problem (ie. 2 green & red flashed followed by 5 red flashes - Fan blowing but not cooling ... I also noted that the outside unit fan wasn't going). Tried restarting several time after waiting only a minute or two after turning the mains power off but with no change. So turned the unit off at the mains power and then fired it up about 2hrs later and it was all working fine.

TV turns itself off, then on automaticlly

The fan should run for a few minutes after shut off to cool the lamp down.

If I read and understand correctly somewhere in the cycle you are getting 5 red blinks? that is an error code........

Either you or I can Google the model number of the set with 5 blinks.....or visit the Sony site to see what it means.....

Hisense TL2020 - Won't come on.

Lay unit flat on table, remove stand and rear cover. When you remove back, you will see a power supply board in the middle of the set.There are (3)1000mfd @25 volt electroltics and (1)220mfd @16 volt electrltyic that have to be replaced to return to normal operation. This is not something to try if you are a novice as you must observe polarity when installing these caps. But this repair WILL return set to normal operation.
