OMG...just after celebrating my 500th post on the 300th page...accepting congratulations from all of you...getting ready for the holiday weekend...and getting excited for the umr calibration in two weeks...
I suffer my first ever issue with my beloved Q006
I was watching this afternoon and all was fine. This evening I power it on and the green power light just keeps flashing...there is no picture, but the bulb has warmed up because I do see black (lit). There is audio through my component system. I try to switch to DVD...still no picture. OMG.
I power down and wait a few minutes. Same thing. However, after several minutes (abnormally long), I do get a picture, bright and clear. However, the Video 6 label stays at the top left of the screen. ??? I try hitting display, and it gives me more info (time, etc.), that disappears, but the Video 6 label stays ???
I try switching inputs. Video 7 comes up, but the source from Video 6 stays on the screen (satellite). I cycle through all my video inputs and the labels change, but the source (satellite) stays the same. ???
Probably unrelated, but I did enter the service menu yesterday to check the hours. Followed all directions and the Q006 worked fine last night, then again today. I also viewed the memory stick pictures of Merry Christmas, posted above. No issues after that as well.
Looks like a service call may be needed
