Two problems in one. Firstly, the control station sometimes won't turn on - even though the unit is powered (judging from the red standby-light). Second, the control station has a tendency to, every once in a while, "hang" in one of the menu's, e.g. when regulating subwoofer/sattelite volume with the "level" button on the panel.

It is highly unlikely that you will be able to buy just a new base station from the original manufacturer. If you are still covered by the warranty, return the unit and try to claim a brand new unit.
Try taking a call even though the red light doesn't work. Sometimes, the bulb can be faulty. This however, shouldn't prevent you from making a call
Are you getting a standby light at all? Is it flashing? Do you here a click when you plug the unit in? If the answer is no to all of these then you blew a fuse. If you do have soome sort of standby light, then your set is in protect mode. More than likely for a blown channel. If no lights, but you ar egetting a click, you could have a bad transformer. Use a DVM and see if it is open or not. Good luck
sounds like bad capacitors on the power board. Very common problem. I would look at the caps if any appear even slightly rounded on top they are bad. They should be perfectly flat on top any puffing up means replace that cap.
Usually Sony and LG Blinking Codes are the same. Here is what I have.
Unit is dead, No blinks - Problem in the standby power section. Might check fuse,
Continuous blink once a second, no pausing - No reply from the jungle IC301 (data bus is busy, shorted to ground, or held high), IK video path is defective.
One blink - not used for the self-diagnosis
Two blinks - B+ over current protection (OCP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 2 blink fault. Could be a short in the power supply of any of the circuits.
Three blinks - B+ over voltage protection (OVP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 3 blink fault. This is also a problem in the power supply circuit,
Four blinks - No vertical Deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single horizontal line then the video signal muted.
Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.
Six blinks - No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking self-diagnosis function immediately.
Seven blinks - High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33k and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply regulation and horizontal circuits.
Eight blinks - Problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and blinks the self-diagnosis code.
Nine blinks - Panel Module Error or Thermal Error. If it is intermittent 9 blinks, meaning sometimes the TV comes on and other times you get flashing Make sure the regulator is -12 or -13 (negitive).
Ten blinks - Check Q8014 and Q8013 for shorts, leakage, or bad solder connections on the " D" board. If the transistors are bad, check R8051 and IC8005, also on the "D" board.
Well, at least the standby 5vdc circuit is still working but the problem can be in the controller board is not sending the signal to turn on the main power supply sections, or the power supply itself is bad. Look at the power supply first for burnt parts, bad capacitors. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague
The NEC’s work on a reducing time basis, they count the hours that they have been operational and refer to this as the life of the bulb – 1600 hours. When the 1600 hours has been reached the projector shuts itself down into standby mode never to be restarted even after changing the bulb / filters. This is because the unit needs to be reset, which needs to be done as follows (not included in any of the bulb replacement instructions):-
Plug Projector in so it is in standby mode – Orange light lit, Red status light lit (not flashing)
Using the remote control, hold down the power off button for 30-45 seconds
This will reset the status button, removing the red light
Power up the projector and select Menu
Select Projector Options
Select Set-up – a number of tabs will appear called pages
Arrow across the pages (MT850 is Page 5) until an option called “RESET LAMP HOURS” is shown
Move onto this option and press enter on the projector itself, confirm that you want to reset the counter
Projector is now back to life
This works for all NEC projectors, the page number may be different though where the “RESET LAMP HOURS” option resides.
There are 4 reasons why your unit is behaving this way: 1. Charger is the problem. 2. The docking station is the broken. 3. The battery is broken or not accepting charge. 4. The actual unit is the problem. It is very hard to tell which one is causing this to happen. Let us do some troubleshooting first: 1. Plug your charger in an A/C outlet and make sure the red power light (left) is lit, otherwise the charger or the docking station is broken. 2. You can test the charger with a multimeter. Unplug the charger from the docking station and measure the voltage across the outside and inside, it should register more than 5 volts DC. If there is a 5Volt DC the docking station is the problem otherwise the charger is broken. 3. If the red power light is lit and the status light (right) is lit too, your docking station is broken. 4. If the red power light is lit, dock the unit into the charger, the status light (left) should turn red when your battery is accepting charge or turn blue when your battery is fully charged. 5. If the status light will not lit at all (while the red power light is on), tap the screen while the unit is docked on the charger. If the unit will become alive, you need a new battery otherwise you need a new unit.
12 hours is very long time to charge, the status light should turn to blue in less than 2 hours especially for a new battery.
