A year later I decided to work on it again. (I finally had enough of watching a 19" tv)
I just replaced the ballast and color wheel. All items bought from Union Electronics. It would not turn on. All I would get was the green blinking light, then the temp light would flash and the tv would just shut off.
Last night I kicked the back of the TV, and then tried turning it on and IT DID. The color was off, but it turned on. The lamp light was on, but that's because I haven't been able to reset timer since I don't have the remote. I had to order an original remote last night so I could adjust the colors and reset the timer, which is OK.
BUT NOW THIS MORNING IT WILL NOT TURN ON.
Green light flashes, I hear a click in the back, green light keeps flashing, then red light turns on and it stops. then tv tries to turn itself back on again.
When doing all of the work on the TV, I checked continuity of temp sensor, and it was good. I even did a jumper test, but it was still giving me the green light, then red cycle of death.
