Question about Projection Televisions

Open Question

Thompson 32WF401. The TV will no longer turn on. When in standby the red light is on. When you push a channel button on the remote to switch the TV on the light changes to amber for a second, the TV clicks and then the light returns to red. The red light then does three flashes followed by five flashes (I assume some kind of fault code). The flashes repeat 3 and 5 several times. Please help.

SOURCE: tv won't turn on. power indicator light comes on then goes off after about three seconds, then retries twice more then locks out.

That is what these sets will try to do if the power supply detects a short. The set will try three times to come on then shut down again till you pull the plug or press the power again. It is not really a diagnostic code. Most likly your problem is the horizontal output transistor and or the flyback transformer. Very common problem for this set. good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.

SOURCE: Pioneer SD-532HD5 Projection Screen TV won't turn back on.

The problem is the power supply components over heating. The power supply is on the back side right hand. supply extra cooling via a fan and it will stop shutting down. This is just a cheap and simple fix that wil tie you over for a while. cheers mates.

SOURCE: Green flashes then tv turns off

or a new lamp. you could first replace the lamp.
the screen might work fine for a couple of seconds, but then it fades away or deteriorates. This means the lamp is going bad.

We have a red light flashing on the front of the tv.It shut off and we don't know how to turn it back on.


A red flahing light is sometimes a Standby Mode. Does the power button on the remote turn it on.Sometimes the remote has multi funtions and you need to select TV for it to work.Try using the Power Button on the TV.Good Luck.

If it's a big tv it can just take a little while to power up, I've found that pushing channel up button switches on tv quicker but I've no idea why.

Unless you want to save power you should only be switching tv to standby, there will still be a light on the tv somewhere, blue or red it varies. TV's turn on much faster from standby than completely off.

Samsung hc-r5245w no power


Hello Chac c,

The reason that you are getting a 'red light' is because your lamp is burned out. There is a panel on the back of the TV that gives you access to this lamp. You can remove it and check the part# to be sure then replace it. I did a quick search for you just based on the model# which you provided. You can see it here - http://www.nextag.com/serv/main/buyer/OutPDir.jsp?search=samsung+lamp&gg_site=&gg_aid=1295966762

Hope this helps :)

Philips universal remote codes


For the majority of phillips/magnavox universal remotes: Hold code search button down till red light satys on. Press the tv button and the red light should blink and stay lit. With the tv on, push the power button repeatedly until the tv turns off.(dont push the power button again after the tv turns off or it will go to the next code). Push the mute button to save the setting.
