Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
That is not the correct output, but can you tell me where you purchased that replacement lamp from?
What did you pay for it- $35 or $100?
When are you testing the ballast output (the board that connects to the lamp)? Is it after the TV is turned ON?
Also are the fans running?
Yes DC. You need to press the power button once, and then test the output at the lamp terminals. However lamp door must be closed (or at least lamp trigger switch must be engaged).
Also, do you still have the old lamp? If so can you put it in the set and see if the TV powers on with a dim picture?
There's also a switch behind the lamp door. Nevermind those and put the old lamp back in, then close the lamp door. Let me know what happens.
Hello, Are you saying you have two receivers that both exhibit the same exact symptoms?
Sorry the site popped up my answer from another question to yours- please disregard the last reply.
