Can only unplug for few minutes and try again then no problem picture good and everything,unless you turn if off, then have to start all over. Other thing noticed when off the red LED's blink off about every 20 seconds which I never noticed before.Why is a $3000 tv about 2 years old such a problem??

    When you power on, color wheel spins up and lamp fires up, 30 seconds later everything shuts down. You unplug it for 10 seconds then plug it back in and works fine for thirty minutes. Picture freezes then shuts down. With HD antennae, if you pick a weak channel picture will pixulate and lock up..remote will not respond. Please Help. I need my tv fixed by the super bowl!!

Cause it's the official tv of nascar and the nfl and most other really expensive advertising. As a servicer and an owner of the same set, I first would try to vacuum out all vent holes behind set. This has caused mine to shutdown several times. I don't completely understand you about modes, but make sure all audio/video cables are connected well and hdmi cable. Also, make sure that the door switch on the lamp cover is fully engaged. They had an intermittant problem with some of them not making good contact. Go over your power strips and/or extension cables real good and hope for the best. Good luck.

My SCEPTRE X37 is making a distortion noise when turned on the volume works but not with out a humming sound ?

Wondering how old the set is?
Is it still under warranty - if it is - take it in right away and get it fixed.
If not - my thoughts is that you are going to have a problem with the power supply soon. This usually is an indication that something 'not good' is happening to either your main power supply or the Florescent back lamps ballast power supply. My thoughts are bad Capacitors that are drying out. This happens on many of these types of LDC flat panels.

Lamp burn out 3 time in 16months

clean out your projector. if there is a lot of dust and/or no air flow, the lamp will overheat and die. it needs to cool. use canned air and blow out any and all dust from inside the projector. make sure the fans work. also, don't buy lamps from "bob's lamps". get it from a reputable benq dealer.

LMP-H150 reset hours on sony cineza VPL-HS2

These instructions are for a Sony Cineza VPL HS3, but may be the same for the HS2
1st thing to check - is the cover properly/completely closed - this can stop the projector from working.
Connect the power and set the projector to standby mode.
Press these buttons on the remote control in this order, for less than 5 seconds each.
Reset - Left Arrow - Right Arrow - Enter

This is required, to reset the lamp timer.

Also, something I found interesting from the internet - lamp life isn't when the bulb dies, but when a bulb has lost 10% of its brightness - so you might well be able to reset the timer and get much more use from the bulb - the image just wont be as bright.

Sony kf-50XBR800 tv turns itself on and off

I just purchased a replacement lamp off ebay and the TV is working fine now. Color looks better too (which I guess I should have expected). Search for "REPLACEMENT LAMP SONY XL-2100U" on eBay and look for seller "niosales". I paid $129 out the door. Their are other auctions for this lamp you can check out. Make sure you look at lamps that include the entire lamp housing, not just the bulb.

never fool with led or indicator lamps.... its telling you your power is dropping out somewhere ...most likely a regulator on the PS Board.
