    Actually the sound goes off also, I forgot that our sound is going through our entertainment system.

Your lamp is going bad. Search online and get a new one. Nothing to replace, just don't mishandle when putting it in.

I have the exact same problem with my tv. Unfortunately, I'm not sure what is wrong or how to fix it either. I notice your post is from July. Have you found a solution since then? - Sarah

No picture

Good Day, aodame;

You say no picture, good! Now let me ask you:
1. Is the no picture black, blue or snowy?
2. Do you have sound?
3. NO picture on ALL inputs?
4. Any lights blinking on front TV panel?
5. Did you try resetting the TV by unplugging from the wall for 3 to 5 minutes?

If you could provide a Brand and Model numbers I could be more helpful, but I hope this was a start.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

PS: you may want to call a factory authorized service dealer to repair your TV.

No picture no sound

I have found 5 blinks on this unit to be a defective light engine every time.
