Something is working because I can tell the screen is displaying a black image. After the green LED flashes the standby LED will flash once and the TV will start again trying to turn on. It never gives me the 3 flashing LED error code.
I have pulled out the light engine and tested all 3 LEDs with a 9 volt battery and they are all working. I completely cleaned out any dust from the heatsinks and fans (all fans are working) but I can't seem to figure out whats going on. Any suggestions? I have had the TV for 3 1/2 years and only problem I have ever had was I had 1 fan replaced within the year warrenty.
I experienced the same exact thing and could not find anything here nor the internet to help with this problem. As you can read from my previous posts in this thread, I took it to a TV repair shop, and $650 later I did get my picture back. The repairman said he replaced 2 "modules". Sorry, that's not very specific. When I got it home, the red LED had also fried, which he did not fix, nor did it look like he had even opened up the TV, as the light engine was completely full of dust...TONS of it.
Hopefully someone here knows exactly what needs to be replaced, although the cost of the modules was $250 each. Like some told me, it may be time to just replace the set. I already had the money sunk into it, so I just spent the money to replace the LED. Good luck, I hope things turn out better for you!!
