Hello Jbss,
I need to know how many blinks the red led makes before a pause. We need this info to diagnose the tv.

Best regards

Toshiba 62hm15a blows lamp after 3months

One possible reason I can think of here is I think this model had a quick start or quick on feature.

What will happen if it does is set will come on and work normally--when you turn it off and watch the lamp, it will dim down but NOT GO OUT--AFTER 3-5 MINUTES THE FAN WILL (LAMP FAN) go off.

It was a stupid feature, lamp is running 7/24 at about 40 percent brightness--idea was you did not have to wait the 10-15 seconds for brightness to come up and be normal when set is first turned on.

If this is your problem look in the main menu for a setting like that and disable or deselect it.

Set when cold will take longer to reach full brightness and when turned off lamp will go completely OFF and lamp fan will continue to run for a few minutes.

I hope this is your problem---PS if the set is real dusty inside it can cause issues but that is rare in this set.

I replaced the bulb worked fine for a week now it won't turn on

All these sets if they do not come on will have a light or lights on the front blinking -----which are blinking?

Also it might be a smart idea to remove the lamp you installed and have a look at it to make sure it went into the socket right where the plug on the back of the lamp is--I always suspect when a issue happens shortly after a part has been replaced.

I recently replaced the TY-LA1000 lamp but I'm getting a yellow flashing light that goes on every 5 secs.I made sure that it was installed correctly and tried resetting the timer by pressing + and - o

Yellow flashing light? Did you get any picture? Bet, not!
It means: your lamp door interlock is not engaged: did you forget to turn the locking knob? Did you install lamp compartment door? That might be the only issue. Lamp timer blinks 'red", while TV works normally. Reset the timer, it's gone, along with annoying message. Yellow means: interlock or thermal protection is off. Try to repeat lamp installation procedure. then, you'll find out your mistake. don't need to remove the lamp. It would be "red", if lamp won't fire up.
good luck,

I have a sony kdf50e2000, just replaced the lamp. now it won't turn on, I have reseated the lamp and cover door numerous times but the standby lamp keeps blinking 3 times. Any suggestions I...

Remove the lamp door and examine it edgewise: if the door has been warped by the heat the peg on the back of the door will not engage the blue safety lever.

What I do with the door removed is engage the lever with something plastic or not metal and try to turn the set on; if it comes on the door is your problem and DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY AT THE LAMP OR REPLACE THE OUTER SHIELD AND OPERATE THE SET THAT WAY.

Three blinks usually means door not secured etc.

The safety lever is to prevent the set from being operated with the door removed.

My Samsung 46in DLP turns on but within a few minutes it truns off and the timer, lamp and red stand by/ temp lights blink. Any Ideas?

The blinking lights usually indicate that the lamp is faulty or burnt out. In this case a new lamp would be required. The lamp in your projector set should last around 3-4 years of typical use. If your lamp is at the end of it's life you may have noticed a gradual reduction in brightness over the last few months. In this case if it's still in warranty contact Samsung to arrange for a replacement lamp.
Occasionally the lamp may not come on even when it is not burnt out. You could try turning the power off for 60 seconds on the back of the set. The other possibility is that the lamp is loose. Refer to your manual on replacing the lamp and follow the instructions removing the lamp and then put it back into place. If neither of these work you will need to get a new lamp.

I have had my television for 3 years and apparently the bulb is supposed to last 5 years but every year we have had to replace the bulb, So tell me where the problem would be, what a great...

I have a very good suggestion for you. If the set is working go into the customer menu and look for something called "quick start".

If this set has this feature it is default---means unless you change it that will be the way it is. It was a stupid idea----what happens is if it is there and engaged when you shut the set off the lamp will dim down about 60% but it and the fan will be one 7/24 which tends to shorten the lamp life.

Average lamp life should be at least 2,000 hours.

If you have the set off and turn it on and instantly get a picture, it is engaged----the "idea" was the customer would not have to wait for the set to slowly bring the lamp up to full brightness (about 15-20 seconds from start to finish).

If you turn the set on and get a normal bright picture in under 7 seconds your set has this feature.

The way this works if it is not engaged is when you shut the set off the lamp will turn off completely and the lamp fan will run for a few minutes until the temperature of the lamp drops below a specific level.

Not to mention vastly shortening the life of the lamp, it also is eating power 7/24.

Please let me know what you find and if you have any questions let me know by posting a "comment" here.

Regards, SD TECH
