Question

DLP No picture, No indicators

by occamsrazorburn / May 5, 2012 11:56 AM PDT

Lost the picture on my 50" DLP last night. I assumed the lamp went out, but there are no flashing indicators. The Lamp light blinks on power up for about 5 seconds, then goes out. I can hear the click that usually indicates the picture coming on, but nothing happens. Time to replace?
