Scenium DLP 50

As far as the pic, it is perfect. I forgot to mention that I recently (like, a week ago acutally) replaced the lamp, thinking that was the problem, but it still does it. Before I replaced the lamp, it wouldn't turn on at all, and now at least it does, but still does the blinking with the blue lights. Sometimes it works on the first try, other times it takes three or four trys.

    I've dusted it. I used a whole can of decompressed air, trying not to touch anything, afraid the oil from my skin would do more damage than good. And as far as dry soldering, you've got me man. I'm not too savy when it comes to the internal parts of electrical things, thats just not my forte. To my layperson eye though, nothing appeared to be melted or disconnected. As I said before, the picture came back on after I installed this new lamp, although it would still do the blinking (5 times exactly) with the blue lights. Now though, and its been about a week since I installed the new lamp, it wont turn on again. I've run out of ideas

    I ordered the exact same lamp. Cost more, but I didn't want to leave any room for doubt

I did check the link. The comments on the page dont sound too promising though, they all seem to be pretty doubtful about getting the problem fixed on their own sets (same as mine). I'm still looking though

If this is a DLP, which I believe it is, your bulb is blown. Look for an indicator light on the front of the tv. After you hear the bulb try to warm up two or three times the indicator light should come on and stay on steady.
I own a 57" Mitsubishi DLP and have replaced the bulb three times now. It was the latest and greatest technology when I bought it, but knowing what I know, I dont think I would buy another DLP.
By the way, get the bulb number then check ebay, by far the best prices.

Did you use an original replacement lamp or an aftermarket replacement? From the price you give, it sounds like an aftermarket lamp, which are notoriously buggy and the problem may be with the lamp. If not, the lamp driver is your next likely culprit. It is also called a lamp power supply or lamp ballast.

Yes I should be able to help you figure it out. First look on the rear of the set to check what the chassis number is. Should be an ATC 336 but it might be a ATC323 let me know the chassis number and we can go from there on diagnosing the problem
