Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you today. To make sure I don’t miss anything, please give me a minute to review your question.
There is cover sensor switch located nearby the lamp housing area (where the lamp goes in) and that switch pressed by the cover, if you press and hold that switch manually (put a tape on it) then TV will not get error signal and switch On.
If there is trouble to find that switch in TV, please take a good picture of lamp housing area and I'll point it out.
I hope these info will help. If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask.
No problem, please take a god picture of that area and post it here so I can view it and it will enable me to point it out on that picture.
Please use add-file link located below the box where you type the reply to attach the picture file here.
Let me try to send a picture and this will test the website system as well.
Can you get the attached picture file?
Ok, I found few pictures of lamp door switch that will help to locate similar thing around the lamp cover area inside TV cabinet, please click following link to view the switch and find it having blue lever..
You would need to push and hold the blue level down or upright to close the switch then turn On the TV.
Sorry to hear that, so the switch is broken.
How many wires that connector have that plugged into circuit board where the switch is mounted?We will try alternate option.
Let me explain, if that switch is broken then a new cover will not fix the issue as main processor chip will keep getting open switch signal and wont allow the TV to switch On.
Alternate option is to close the switch manually or replace the switch or simply join the switch terminals with piece of wire, all this will help to send the correct signal to main processor/ controller chip and it will think lamp door switch is closed so turn On the TV.
I'm still waiting the picture of that area.

Thank you, ***** ***** the picture of lamp housing area which would be on left of the board showing in pic you posted.
Thanks, ***** ***** disassemble the little board that has blue switch that broke?
I don't see it in that picture, can you take a picture of broken switch and post it here? It will enable me to suggest joining the specific wires.
I don't think the blue switch is located in circled area, you can locate it easily if put lower back cover (temporarily) back on TV and check out the lamp door area because lamp door has to push that switch when in place.
Once located the switch, all it needs to join the two wires together that plugged into that board, TV will think the door switch is closed and will turn On.
But the lamp door can't push that switch at that location because it will get covered when you put lower back cover on TV, try it.
I wish I had pictures of lamp door (blue) switch location that will surely make things easier.
Let me repost the question to see if another expert can assist you further.
Thanks for the wider picture that helped, this TV has bigger lamp door and you're correct, lamp door switch board is located under the bigger board in circled location. You would need to take out TV chassis from cabinet to access to or replace that small circuit board. Please check the marked thing with yellow arrow which is rest of switch body still mounted on circuit board and blue part isn't on it.
It seems its TV tech work to disassemble and reassemble the TV safely to avoid any further damage and replace the lamp door switch board. I hope these info will help. If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask. If you're satisfied, please rate me a 5-star at the top of your page. Thank you.
Sure, I'm opting out to repost this question for all other available techs, hopefully some one will soon respond.
Hi `I`m Jack , different tech. here
Still need help with this ?
Instead of defeating that switch ,how about the original lamp cover for $14 ?
switch is broken now ??
How do you know , it means you found it then ?
O.k then just pull it out and splice those 2 wires together and you`re done
There will be 2 wires on that switch , cut , skin and splice together
How do you mean " wish it was that easy "
How many wires go to that small board anyway ?
Are there actually 4 wires on that plug ?
By the way , nothing looks broken there
You mean the switch holder is broken ?
Asking because i can also give links where you can buy the switch itself
Not following you here , you found and replaced the broken switch and now what is the problem ??
If you manually depress that switch now , does the tv start ?
Do you want to buy that switch then
This is what you said above " the blue switch I showed u in the frst pic is one I found online "
Well electronics is not always easy , i cannot tell you which contacts on that switch need to be bypassed
In any case i dont know why you would be able to bypass but not replace it
I was on my way out just now sir
