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.

TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 10 months ago

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.

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.

Well as soon as I did that the blue part fell off
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 10 months ago

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.

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I just screwed the other cover back on and will probably wait and order the cover tomorrow
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 10 months ago

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.

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.

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 10 months ago

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.

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 10 months ago

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.

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I'm certain that's where it was located. Underneath where I circled
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 10 months ago

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.

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I understand what you're saying but that is where that blue switch was located
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 10 months ago

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.

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
That is it.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 10 months ago

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.
