Hi there,

Have you carried out any voltage tests yet?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have voltage to the tv, only voltage I tested was the output to the ballast which was within range. I am an HVAC contractor and familiar with trouble shooting electronics FYI. I have read that my fans have to be running and the color wheel running before the bulb will light. everything else seems to be working up to the color wheel not running. After 3 tries the standby/temp and lamp light flash.
