Okay so here's what happened. I bought this TV (HLP5063WX/XAA) at an estate sale. I got a bunch of great stuff for uber cheap and also this TV for 10 bucks. It turned on, and they seemed like a nice family so i took it. They said nothing was wrong with it. They lied obviously haha. Okay enough of that, let's get down to business:
1 - I turn it on after sitting for a while, and it take s along time for the screen to show, even though there is power.
2 - When it's on, sometimes it doesn't show which imput it's on, even though i changed it with the remote.
3 - Sometimes when it's on, it randomly shows "standby" and "lamp" on the display panel on the tv (not the screen), sometimes followed by 3 clicking noises. When this happens the TV is on, but the screen is off (assuming it's on standby mode).
4 - When it does decide to work, the screen is really shaky. When there is a still image (let's say from Anime), it doesn't shake.
5 - Lastly, and this may or may not be worth mentioning, but the buttons on the TV itself don't always work (same issue with the remote).
My guess is it's the lamp? Thoughts?... You guys seem to know your stuff... help a brotha out! Thanks :)
