Question about LG 52SX4D 52" HDTV

1 Answer

TV not turning on

The white light will roll for a couple minutes then turn red indicating i need to replace my bulb but it never gave anykind of warning. The manual mentions a orange light should appear when bulb is about done, but that never happened. I'm curious if I should replace the bulb or if it is something else. I've had the TV for about 18 months

Its probably pretty close to time at 18 months and they often give no warning, I believe the orange light on an LG is just the lamp timer which really just counts hours. Pull the lamp out and look at it they often physically break inside and it is obvious

I have an LG DLP. that turns off after 15 -30 seconds


If the second light is blinking to orange or red, that is usually the lamp indicator light on an LG DLP tv. That indicates your bulb needs replaced, or something surrounding the bulb has failed (like the cooling fan for the bulb for example) IF you have a spare bulb handy, I'd replace the bulb, keeping in mind if you touch any part of a new bulb with your bare hands, you just cut the life of the bulb by more then half.

I replaced a burned out xl-2000u bulb with an after-market Philips bulb on my Sony KF60XBR800. After a fews weeks, I started experiencing intermittent black-outs with the "stand by" red light appearing. After a couple weeks it became intolerable. I then purchased an OEM Sony lamp and the problem has been gone for months. I read somewhere that the Sony circuitry monitors either resistance or watts and shuts the thing down for board protection. It was said that it is so sensitive it can can use only the Sony bulb. I'm a believer. If the bulb is going bad, i wouldn't doubt the protection circuit can kick in.

LG DLP not turning on


well i know what the problem is... if your getting the white scroll and then the red light flashes but the fans are comming on and you got a new bulb the broblem is the ballast. i know cuz i had the same problem and a good friend of mine has a tv shop and i had him look at it but the good news is that its not that hard to change. if you try to go through LG thay wont be able to sell you the ballast if your just a coust. good news is that you can fined the ballast on ebay from s.gifeasywaylamps its about $130.00 bucks shiped. bad news about is that thay are from china(it is where i got mine) but it works great and hasent gave me a broblem yet. if any one eles has the same problem and it was something eles.... PLEASE POST IT. i hope my info has been helpful to someone.... thanks Brad Ross of East Moline Illinois... you can email me at [email protected]

Sony projection tv does not turn on


There are a lot of sites that sell bulbs for those. Use a search engine and the model with the word bulb. Be aware that it may be the ballast though.

Lg 52sx4d problem


If the red light scrolls through, you need to replace the bulb. I replaced the my own bulb, and when I tried to turn on the tv the light kept scrolling. What was wrong? I DIDNT FULLY REASSEMBLE THE TV AFTER REPLACING THE BULB.

Make sure that all the screws are put back in and it will probably work if you have replaced the bulb.

I have a LG RU-44SZ61D DLP TV and recently replaced the bulb. After about two months the TV went really dim and then started shutting off. The problem increased to the point where you couldnt have the tv...


DLPs have flow chart trouble shooting techniques to pinpoint exactly why your set isnt completeing the boot sequence. If you would like the service manual for your model let me know and i will post a link where you can purchase a complete one.

try removing the lamp and inspecting it if it's not shattered inside ,chances are it's ok and you might have another problem ,possible balast fault,that drives the lamp assy. look for fan operation also.

Tried to turn it on? Sounds like you need to replace the lamp. However, I got an additional week out of my unit. Although poorly dimmed and the red Lamp light blinked constantly for that one week, at least it gave me enough warning to seek out a replacement. But so long as you're not mistaking the Power/Standby or Timer light for the Lamp light then I would have to agree with you. http://store.l-f-l.com/prod/A-1606-034-B Includes shipping to the United States and no sales tax outside of California.
