I phoned Olevia and the Tech support said that if the Red light Flashes 3 times and the Green light flashes once and then this process is repeated - it means the Lamp is no good.

Tech Guy also said that this TV should never be placed near a Window/door - no sunlight!

My TV is doing the same thing and I need to get a lamp - they want $110 for the lamp.

Where did you buy the lamp from? How much did it cost?

I have a 50 inch DLP samsung and it wont power on after making a lot of noise (I replaced the lamp) worked fine for a few days now the red light and the right side green light is blinking. any sugge


The answers above are correct. It's either the lamp or the color wheel. Testing the lamp is pretty straight forward. Use an Ohm meter to see if the it's filament has continuity. It's unlikely that a good color wheel would fail immediately after changing the lamp. Look to see if some wiring is out of place and rubbing the wheel causing the noise you described. A jammed but otherwise good color wheel would cause the TV to shut down and display an error code.

Red/green lights both blink and tv will on turn on


Are the red and green lights blinking at the same rate or not? If the green light is blinking every 3 seconds and the red light is blinking every 1/2 second, the lamp door is not properly secured. If both lights are blinking at 1 second intervals, try replacing the lamp. If a new lamp doesn't solve the problem, the TV needs service.

I hope this helps.

Samsung hln617w dlp tv won't turn on. Red temp


Had similar problem. Thought it was the lamp. Examined old lamp but it appeared to be good. Ordered a new one anyway. Changed the lamp but the TV screen would not come on. It would make the usual noise as it was going to come on normally but it would cycle 3 times & then turn off. The LED lights in the front panel would indicate a defective lamp. Then read about the ballast. Changed the ballast & still same problem. Tried starting the TV without the lamp installed & noticed that the color wheel did not spin. Removed old color wheel & discovered it was broken. This appears to be the cause of all of my problems. I wish I new earlier of the test-turn on the TV without the lamp being installed & check to see if the color wheel is spinning. Would have save money on the lamp & ballast.

Zenith E44W46LCD new bulb still no picture


Could be an LCD drive board or a ballast. This is what to expect from free advice..... A guess. If you pay good money for a set why not get a factory tech. who knows what to do to solve your problem. I don't do LG warranty right now, but I did when your set was new. Here is a free gift. Start by having someone test the lamp tempurature sensor. It is a very thin black wire with a small fuse-like thermistor with heatshrink tubing around it. It is mounted on or around the lamp and can be purchased at any major consumer electrinics distributer. Good luck, Russmann.
