Okay good call on the lamp door. Now that it is tight the TV is doing something different. The yellow light has gone out, the blue light is steady and the green light is flashing constantly. I reset the TV and still the same.
No, it looked perfect. It was less then a year old and the TV has not moved nor any lightning taking strikes or power surges that we know of. Nothing else being taken out in the house by such things. The bulb looked good and so I tried to test it with an ohms meter which read infinite. That is why I got the new bulb but then found out that you can't test the bulb with an ohms meter (Yes I know...a little knowledge can be dangerous haha).
Yes, no response to the power button. I'm not sure what the lights were doing as opposed to now but the yellow light just keeps blinking
Oh sorry. I meant the green light is flashing constantly in a steady rhythm. (it looks yellow when the yellow light is off). This is the light to the right of the blue light.
after plug it in (after tightening the lamp cover) the Blue light is on steady and the green light flashes the same non-stop.
Okay, thanks. I'm confident enough where I can pull some fans and check if they are bad. I can see loads of dust inside the lamp fan so it would be good to take apart and clean out anyway. I hope this does the trick since we can't afford another TV yet.
BTW I see you were Navy, thanks for serving!
