did you jump the door interlock on the back of the tv?
This TV does not have a door. I have to remove the back cover to get to the lamp. Where would I find the interlock?
on the back cover towards the bottom
there should be an interlock if you have the back off it wont work
looking at the inside of the back cover I only see screw holes and air vents.
look for a tab that pushes into a slot
There are no tabs or anything on the cover and I do not see anything like that in the area where the cover fits. Is this interlock optical?
let me see if i can pull a manual there was one model that didnt have one maybe this is it
The manual says there is a lamp door
The lamp fixture has two screws holding it in place. When the cover is removed the fixture is accessible and after the screws are removed the fixture can be pulled out.
there is a rectangular slot under the lamp in the base of the engine
let me check that out...
there is a rectangular slot at the base of the engine that you can see the top of the ballast board?
in the sot is a metal tab that gets pushed when you put the back on
that is what the manual shows
however the 65 code says you have a comminications probem double check all your cables to the main board
replace the main board if there is no issue
The rectangular slot I mentioned can be seen after removing the lamp assembly. I have looked all around the area of the light engine and I do not see any kind of tab or switch. There is another slot on the bottom of the cabinet beneath the light engine but there is nothing in it.
thats where it is suppose to be
if its not there then maybe they did not use it with this model
like i said the 65 code says you have a commuications error this is either a bad or missing connection or a bad MAIN board or engine
look at your connectors and verify they are in right and tight
take a look at your color wheel does it spin up?
