Trouble Codes - Flashing lights.

My PLK405 is between 5 and 6 years old and the last few months the tv would go out once in awhile and then I would shut it off and open the fan area etc and get it to come on. Now when I turn it on I get the lamp light to flash a couple of times and then all three lights in the front do a continual flash. I am hoping it is just the lamp as I can uy one of those online cheap enough (and it would be just about replacement time). However, if I need to invest in a repair call and a lamp, etc. then it may not be worth it versus buying a new set. Does anyone know if all three lamps flashing is the code for a bad lamp (or more)? Can I safely replace the lamp myself without dealing with high voltage risk? (I am not a technician but not totally without an electronic IQ). Thanks!

Looking at the lamp itself can give a very good idea of its condition,You should be able to remove the lamp safely from its compartment because you will not be close to the high voltage but make sure the set is totally unplug from the wall.There might other reason but the lamp is a good place to start.

JVC 32 LED TV model LT-23C661(A) red light is flashing tv will not come on I have tried the "hold down menu and volume buttons method" but not working TV is only 20 months old

start by trying to reset your TV. Disconnect the power cord from the outlet, then press and hold the power button on the TV (not the remote), for at least 10 seconds. Then wait a few minutes and plug the TV back in and press power once. 2 blinks on Samsung TV's usually indicates a bad power supply.Sep 21, 2017

New 60ph6700 hd 3d tv /watchind hd sports fuzzy grass and background/once in awhile lines run through screen/its only two wks old??

Anything new has a chance of failure the first month or so from cold solder joints on circuit boards. If it passes the first month it may last 8 or 12 years. Send it back under warranty.
