five red blinks

This thread helped me replace my OB about 5 years ago...thanks for that... but now I have a new problem. No picture, no sound, just 5 red blinks. Any suggestions?

Five red XBR2 means "lamp driver bad", aka ballast.

Fault indications in any set with a lamp are not always reliable in the case of "bad lamp" or "bad ballast". That's because all that lies between the two is a ~5KV pair of wires that are very difficult to monitor with 5v digital electronics.

As always, start with a physical inspection of the lamp. Consider what make of lamp it is and how many approximate hours are on it.

Chuck,


You seem knowledgeable about the bulbs in these sets. Have you seen a correlation between putting in a new bulb and hastening the failure of an OB?


As I said earlier, I have held off putting a new one in as I thought I recalled from years ago that it seemed to be the case.


Thanks,



BJBBJB

I can say that in my personal experience with my XBR2 that I had excellent picture for 3 years, above average for the next 2 years, then replaced my bulb, picture went back to excellent for 1 week and then I developed the green globs. Had to replace the OB at that point. Picture went back to excellent...until recent lightning strike.

I have checked numerous online sites for the ballast. Part # 1-474-010-11 and all say out of stock. Anyone have an idea? I'd like to repair my TV instead of buying a new one. Thanks,
