The TV worked fine in the morning and then when my wife got home from work she went to turn it on for the kids and it wouldn't start / turn on. She thought it was the bulb. After I got home we changed the bulb, even though I told her the bulb didn't look blown. The TV still wouldn't come on. You can hear a clicking noise, like a relay switching on & off, but theTV will not start. The TV's green power light blinks rapidly for about 30 sedconds and then the red light comes on solid. You can hear the audio but absolutely no picture. I also have another spare bulb I got when the original bulb went out & a aftermarket bulb failed right away, so it was sent back to be upgraded to an OEM bulb. In the meantime another bulb was bought a closer shop (all of the bulbs are are original Osram's). We then tried the second spare bulb & the same thing happened. I tried pushing the system reset button on the front, but now the same thing happens and instead of audio we just hear static (probably because the there is no input selected).
does it look like the bulb turns on? just no picture on the tv? it could be the ballast and not the bulb.
I have the same TV and have taken apart just about everything and have replaced just about everything.
Just looked into some of my receipts and I replaced the lamp temp sensor for a no turn on situation.
Also there is a lamp door switch that needs to be activated before the bulb can turn on(i did this with a yellow led though).
do you have a solid red Lamp or Status LED?Edited by nivo885 - 2/27/13 at 1:41pm
