The fan dont turn on when i turn on the tv and the red light is flashing


Hi,
Red light flashing on tv indicates that tv got some problem and shifted to protection mode to avoid further damage.
If Lamp light is flashing on tv then check lamp that would be dead or broke, replace lamp to solve tv problem.
If standby red light is flashing on tv then let me know how many times it is flashing after 3 seconds long pause to provide you helpful info.
Thanks.

My display keeps shutting off five minutes after starting to watch TV- the sound continues, but the screen is black and the red warning light flashes


Hi,

Please check the sequence in which your warning light flashes.

I will tell you what might be the problem according to the fashing of warning light,
If,

Flashing repeatedly --- Improper voltage supply
Flashing once --- Malfunctioning of fan
Flashing twice ---excessive temperature
Flashing 3 time or more--other problem

When flashing occurs please remove the power cord from receptacle and inform your dealer about the flashing sequence.

Thanx

Standy Light Flashes 6 times when I turn the TV on.


First thing I would try is the micro switch on the lamp door. The doors get overheated and warp pushing away from the switch. The micro switch shows the tv an open door and wont let the tv start. Depending on the model you have the lights mean different things but on a WEGA rear projection LCD it ususaly means a board has failed. I just had this problem on a KDF-60XBR950. The C2 digital board was bad. Good luck

Optoma RD50 TV which shuts down on #1 fan failure


This could be a variant of, or a newer (or older) version of the "DMD fan failure" message.

Symptoms I had are, I stop hearing a fan when the message is displayed.
Then the temp LED keeps flashing RED until I either try to turn the TV on again,
Or turn MAIN power off/on again. BUT it repeats when I try to turn the TV on.
The picture appears normal until this happens ( about 15 sec.)

The solution is to FORCE a normal shutdown by hitting the TV off button
before the message appears.
You should see the power LED flashing RED/GREEN (cool down) and then RED (standby).

Immediately Shuts off with blinking light codes


I suggest doing a google search using the tv model # and brand.
I have learned myself that different big screen tvs seem to each have their own common problems. I have read before of power supply issues that cause what your describing.
