Thanks for confirming.
The cheap generic lamps have extremely high failure rates and are often bad right out of the box, so that is the primary culprit here.
The savings you get on the lamps just aren't worth it, they aren't as bright as the original, and when they do work they usually only last a few months at best. They can also damage the ballast and power supply in the tv. At this point you should return the first lamp to amazon and order the proper OEM lamp, which needs to be a philips/osram lamp: http://amzn.to/1J8ytj5
Without having the proper lamp installed, we can't diagnose anything further, though replacing with the correct lamp will usually fix the issue and get you back to working normally.
The 2 blink specifically though points to a bad fan, but we can't properly isolate that until the lamp is replaced, as a bad lamp can prevent proper startup and throw erroneous error codes.
While you are waiting on the correct lamp, go ahead and open the tv up and vacuum it out well, blow off the fans, etc so you are starting with a fresh clean slate.
After the lamp and cleaning are sorted out, let me know if you have any further trouble with it.
