The lamp timer on the Hitachi projector must be reset whenever the lamp has been replaced. The "Lamp" indicator on the display will light red or the "Change the Lamp" message will display when the lamp timer needs to be reset. Hitachi recommends that the lamp timer never be reset without replacing the lamp and to always reset the timer when the lamp is replaced. The message functions of the projector will not function properly if the lamp timer is not correctly reset.

  • Turn the power on. Press the "Reset" button for three seconds until the "Lamp xxxx hr" message appears on the lamp timer on the bottom of the screen.

    Press the "Menu" button on the remote control while the lamp timer is displayed.

  • 3

    Press the left arrow button. Select "0" and wait until the timer display clears.

    How to fix Samsung HL72A650C1FXZA DLP TV with no sound, no picture, bright screen with lamp light flashing?


    Check the bulb ballast board. It's the board that the wires from the bulb connect to. That is most likely causing the Sounds like the main board is the culprit for most of the problem. The picture problem can be the color wheel not turning. The lenses in front of the bulb should be taken out and cleaned too.

    I just replaced the bulb last week, yet this time the TV will still not turn on and all three lights are still blinking.


    It is possible that the replacement lamp is bad but more likely the TV has a protection mode that triggers wen the lamp goes out. Check the manual for ways to reset the lamp usage back to zero or a function that needs to be manually reset when the lamp is changed.

    Have a dlp samsung HLT6176S no picture already replaced the bulb still no picture what gives


    Remove the lamp and look at the color wheel that faces it.

    If wheel is shattered or missing pieces set will know it is not moving or moving too slow and shut set and lamp off.

    Not all color wheels when fail make a sound

    Heard a pop , bulb blew out , replaced bulb , it worked for two days , now red light blinks three times pauses then three times and so on , tv won't turn off light won't turn off unless I unplug...


    3 blinks indicates lamp door is not on or has not been reinstalled properly. This also could mean the lamp door switch has failed itself. Try removing the lamp door and putting back on, if that doesnt correct the problem then I recommend having the switch replaced.

    Hi,

    The most common cause of Panasonic Rear Projection LCD TVs not starting is bulb failure. The PT-60LC13 users manual gives some help in translating the LEDs on the front of the TV.

    If the TV worked normally for a period of time (months or years) and won't start, the most likely cause is bulb failure. There is no way to measure the bulb, sometimes the bulb is visibly damaged when it fails. Remove the Lamp Assembly and look at the bulb.

    If there was an On-Screen Lamp Replace warning and TV won't start, bulb has failed.

    The first step with all Panasonic Rear Projection TV "No Picture" problems is bulb replacement. If that does not remedy the problem, get a technician, there are no user serviceable parts. Guessing if the ballast, power supply, controller board or optical engine is faulty is not practical.

    The Panasonic Lamp Gallery shows all Panasonic models and Lamp Numbers. There is also a link to Panasonic DIY bulb and lamp replacement.

    Sony Wega KF-42E200A Projection Bulb


    New bulb is just fine.
    3 blink shows that lamp cover after replacement of bulb in TV is not fixed properly or not seated well in its position.
    Put new bulb and carefully place back lamp cover in its position because lamp cover will press tinny safety switch inside that will send signal to system control of TV that lamp is installed properly.
    Turn On TV and get vivid picture of Sony.
    Thanks.

    The blinking lamp light refers to the lamp door not being closed. There is a little lever behind the main panel and if that's not shut, the lever won't be pressed in and therefore the light blinks. If it's a failed lamp, the lamp indicator light will be a solid, not blinking.
