my 65 dlp tv shut off with yellow or red flashing light

Hello
Welcome

Thanks for using JustAnswer

 

More than likely its a failed lamp

A lamp is available here please obtain the one with the housing its a lot easier to replace

my set has a single status light and the lamp has not been changed

 

OK this set is slightly different to the one I, m looking at

 

OK when the set shuts down to the red or yellow light you need to hold down on the set itself ACTIVITY and CHANNEL DOWN button for more than 6 seconds, the light will blink a code so for example it couls be 2 blinks followed by 4 blinks I need to know this code please

 

Many Thanks

perfect, powered up tv and working like new this would be easier by phone

Hello

 

No this hasnt solved your problem

This is just a diagnostic code I need to know to diagnose whats wrong with the set, if its come on thats fine but it wont have solved your issue, when the set shuts down again please perform the above

I still strongly believe that the lamp is intermittent here and needs replacing, the lamp anyhow should be replaced every 2 years

when the problem returns how do I contact you to resolve the problem

Hello

 

Just come back to this thread it will be open for some time yet

 

You can do this by using your login or using the emails generated by this thread

 

If you have not changed the lamp in 2 years (for normal use) on that set you must change it as if you dont your running a risk of damaging the light engine
