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?

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.

I turn tv on...green light comes on but i get no picture or audio....then light indicator blinks red


Hello!
Lamp or ballast(if lamp has been replaced) is bad.
Explanation: green comes on: system works, waiting for light to shine into light engine: no light is coming out of lamp, system shuts down, then you see red! how to determine: pull the lamp out of the unit's compartment. Inspect lamp: bloated stem? shuttered? reflector is not shiny? Chuck it!
Lamp looks good or just been replaced: try ballast. Close lamp compartment without lamp itself. Make sure, door is shut, as well. Turn unit on and listen close to lamp compartment: good ballast will make a buzzing noise, then stop. You've got "red'! No buzzing: ballast quit. Needs major repair! Lamp must be good, for sure, to get to the last part of diagnostics. Conclusion: more, than 2000 hours of usage: replace lamp first!
Good luck,
Alex.

Always buy Sony original lamp for TV and avoid aftermarket / cheap lamp for TV safety.

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.
