HelloCustomer

 

Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer. The blink codes are provided by the manifacture for the service technician as a starting point to start looking for problems. These codes indicate that the lamp door is not closed correctly or the lamp is installed correctly. This can also be caused by a bad lamp door switch.

How can I repair the bad lamp door switch. Also, before this happened, my tv was turning off and on randomly, then I replaced the lamp, then this happened
Expert:  Edward replied 7 years ago.
Do you wish to repair this yourself or are you looking for an idea of what the cost to repair the TV will be?

If you wish to repair it yourself what type of electronic training do you have?

What type of TV test equipment do you own?

Do you own and know how to operate an oscilloscope?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I would like to repair it myself. I have no electronic training, but I am a chemical engineer by trade so have a basic understanding of such things. If it is as simle as replacing a board or a switch, I can do that with a manual. I do not know what an oscilliscope is, so no I do not have one. If one is required, then I cannot perform this repair. How much will it cost me, and, why does it go bad. Also can you tell me why my tv cut on and off before this happened?
Expert:  Edward replied 7 years ago.
The manufacture recommends that there are no user serviceable parts inside. This is due to high voltage being present even with the TV unplugged. An oscilliscope will not likely be required for this repair but it is a good tool for diagnosing problems with a TV. The TV was cutting on and off when the safety circuitry in the TV detected a problem and was shutting it down. I expect this repair will be about $250 to $450, depending on how many parts are found to be out of factory specifications, if the problem is a bad circuit board, and if the board can be repaired or has to be replaced. A small TV repair shop will often charge less for the repair than a large electronics repair facility. If you decide this is something that you wish to repair yourself you can download the service manual for this TV by clicking here.
