Hi all - great forum here. I've done a lot of reading, but can't quite find the help I'm looking for. I was the lucky recepient of a free WD-57732, but of course it doesn't work, and I'm hoping someone might be able to offer some troubleshooting tips for me.
When I plug the TV in, I hear a click, and the Timer light will flash for close to 60 secs. After that, when I push the power button, I get nothing - no noise, no lights, nothing. Input/Menu doesn't bring up any error codes like I've seen on other Mits either. Reset just repeats the initialization step. I noticed if I leave the lamp cover switch disengaged, the TV will displace an amber Lamp light after initiallizing.
It doesn't sound like any sequence to fire the lamp is occurring (but I'm not sure what the check sequence is). My guess is I've got an issue with the power supply board, but that's just a guess. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can test it? The board and capacitors all look good, but I'm not sure where to start with it.
Any tips are greatly appreciated, and I will respond with feedback/results.
Also, I'm told the bulb isn't very old, but I don't have another one to test it yet (I just have a square 132W from my Samsung, that I'm not sure would work or not). I'd like to avoid dropping too much money for a gameroom tv for the kids.
