No I didn't notice any blinking lights

Expert:  Michael replied 9 years ago.

Just to clarify, the TV actually turns on, and stays on for a few minutes, then shuts off as if someone turned it off?



Customer: replied 9 years ago.
Yes, it will turn on again after I push TV /power on the cable remote, but it turns itself off again in 2-3minutes.

Ok, well that is unfortunate...


The only problem that causes NO blinking lights at shutdown is a bad main fuse, or a bad DMD board. Since yours comes on, that rulesout the main fuse.


If it is the DMD board then usually the TV will stay on for a while, then just shut off on its own as if it was shut off, only the cooling fan won't run for the lamp.


If it were a temp sensor there would be specific blinking lights, same for the lamp, ballast, power supply, video processing. All have blinking light error codes.


Here is a link to the part you need:



Now you know why I said it was unfortunate Cry



Hope that helps in some way...
