Then the lamp replace warning came up. So, I dug around to find out how to reset that. Unfortunately, when in the service menu, I got distracted and modified the temperature error setting and watched the tv shut off thinking that it was overheated.
Now, the tv will not turn on at all. The standby and temp lights are both red. When power is pressed, the power led will blink green once or twice then back to red.
To repeat, this is not a problem with the sensor itself but the software settings.
I have left the tv unplugged for a few hours and that did not clear the problem. Same with overnight. Currently, it has been unplugged for 36 hours and i may try again.
Any ideas or advice?
