Hi! My name isXXXXX am happy to help you with this! Please bear with me and be patient as sometimes these issues take a little bit of figuring out before we know what's wrong. If you could give me some more information it will be very helpful:

-What do the lights on the front do now?
-How old is the unit?

Please give me this information and I will be happy to assist you further.
Thank you,
Tim Nolan

the light on front panel is red I had bout 5years

Sorry for the delay it took me a moment to get the manual to download.

Just as I thought this is a lamp error, most likely we have a bad lamp.

What you first need to do is pull the lamp out of the set to inspect it.

This process is pretty simple, in the back of the tv there is a small door you can take off and then loosen the screws holding the lamp in and it will pull out. There are instructions in the manual if you still have it, if not and you need it, let me know and I will get you one.

Please pull it out and inspect it, if it is shattered then we need to replace it. I recommend for this myself.

If it is not we will keep troubleshooting.
