I have the same TV - I have a dark spot in the upper left hand corner. I have always thought this TV was dark. Be sure to get OME lamp. Cheaper ones are not worth it and can damage your TV more.
dlplampsource,com--Just a note if this ever happens to you. TV would not come on in the AM-Had no picture, but had sound. It was not the lamp, but the safety switch. It's blue and at the bottom of the lamp housing. As soon as I flipped it and replaced the back cover, the TV came on.

Hey! I have the same problem as you. But! this would happen only when I got a power outage. Unplug the TV for a couple of minutesand all was fine. For the last 5 day I have no TV. I have tried everything. All the out on the TV and I still get unusable signal. My rep told me to unplug for 24 Hours. Still didn't work. My menu option work as well and every time I put the TV on, off or if I change the input sound will come on for 2 seconde and stop. If I find the salution I will let you know. Gilles Ottawa

If bulb is new, try resetting bulb life timer by owners manual, If needed, test and/or replace the ballast which controls power to bulb.

If bulb is bad, the brightness to picture will be less, it will blink occasionally, wont' start within the predetermined time and so on.

Just check whether you are keeping any magnetic materials near and around the TV. If not, some components inside the TV are likely to be defective and this might require attention by a qualified service technician.

Good day!!!!

That problem is usually cause of faulty capacitors on the power supply board..

Just follow this instruction to fix your TV..

1. Open the back cover of your TV.
2. Look at the power supply board..Its normally connected to the power cord..
3. After that,,try to look at the actual image of capacitors if it is bulged on the top so that you can easily determine the bad capacitors..
4. After that,,try to replaced the bad capacitors using soldering iron and soldering lead..replaced the capacitors only with the same type ratings and value..
5. Some of the capacitors not bulged so its better if have a capacitance meter

Arcing takes place at EHT side. Seek tech support.

High pitched or even fan like noise usually means the Color wheel which are hard to find/expensive for this set.

When you shut set off noise should wind down as the wheel which turns at over 10,000 rpm slows down.

Color wheel

A fan like noise can also be a color wheel which depending on brand and model number (can you confirm brand and model number?) may or may not be sold as a part.

The problem is fixable. I think your TV has a bad T-con board and, or CRT.

One of the two above mentioned is a possible cause of the problem you are facing with your TV.

Do you intend fixing this yourself, or you want to take it to a repairman?

I look forward to your reply.

sounds like input problems, if its working with your BR hit the source or input button on your remote and toggle the inputs until you find your cable input its probably going to be hdmi or component

RCA Scenium... | Answered on Jun 06, 2011

Are you using RCA type audio cables?, if so, make sure the connectors are tight and the cables are not frayed, it also helps routing those analog cables at least 8 inches away from any power cords or transformers. Buzzing usually is caused by loose ground connections or RF interference.
