Hi , I`m Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first could you please send me a reply when you see this ?

Expert:  Jack replied 11 months ago.

Hello

The green light flashing means the tv is powering up and that is normal but then the solid red light means the lamp has failed .

When was the last time you replaced it ?

Expert:  Jack replied 11 months ago.

Here is a good supplier with a 1 year warranty on the lamp ;

They also have a lower cost lamp with 6 months warranty ;

You can also use this part # ***** if you`d like to do your own shopping but whatever you do , do not buy those cheap $30 or $40 knock offs on ebay or amazon , you will have nothing but trouble with those .

If you need the procedure to replace that lamp then look in the manual on page 70 and on , clck the link here for the manual ; https://www.mitsubishi-tv.com/asset/file/owners_guide/C9-737-837_OG.pdf

The lamp flashes yellow when it is out, not red. And it was replaced about 3 months aho, and not a cheap one

Manual says RED when the lamp is out and flashes yellow when the door is not closed properly

Expert:  Jack replied 11 months ago.

Download the manual I gave you and look on page 9

Expert:  Jack replied 11 months ago.

By the way , 4 months doesn`t mean the lamp is still good , do you still have the old lamp if it was still working that is ?

If yes then try it , your new 4 months old lamp just failed

Expert:  Jack replied 11 months ago.

Also ,If that wasn`t a cheap lamp then it will be under warranty , just send it back
