Welcome! We are now connected together on this convenient website. I am an experienced electronics field technician and your satisfaction is my top priority. To get started we need more information (additional details may be required):

1. Where did you buy the lamp and how much did it cost?

2. Is it blinking fast or slow? Are you sure it blinking green? maybe it's yellow?

Constant blinking light is not a lamp problem. You can try unplugging the tv power cord for 3 full minutes, sometimes it will clear this if it is just a glitch. But if not, then you need to force a software update. If the software update does not take, then the Main board in the tv needs to be replaced.

If you are unable or unwilling to perform any of these procedures then a repair shop should be consulted, which I can help with also.

Remember that I am here to help you. Please reply back if you need clarification on any of the above.

I have donated my invaluable time helping you rather than other paying customers. Please be sure to click the 5 STARS or SMILEYS rating now.

Rating now does NOT close the question or prevent us from continuing our conversation here. My livelihood truly does depend on your positive rating.

Clicking the "bad/poor" rating does NOT do anything to fix your issue, nor does it issue you a refund.

Thank you,
Mike
