Did you pull out the lamp door already ?
Expert:  Jack replied 8 months ago.
This is an LCD projection tv .If the power light blinks green at startup and then red 3 times then this indicates an open or not securely seated lamp or lamp door hence my asking about the cover above , so make sure the lamp door is closed correctly by either re-installing it or just pull it out and back in securely.After that if the LAMP light blinks at the front instead of the tv coming on then you do need a lampThere are various prices for these lamps but I would not buy those cheap $30 knock-offs on ebay and amazon , you`d be asking for trouble only.Here is one at $55 that would do and carries a 3 months warranty ;, just click this link here >>> CLICK ME And here is a better one at $94 but has 1 year warranty ; http://www.shopjimmy.com/sony-xl-5100-dlp-replacement-lamp-with-philips-bulb.htm Either will do but you can expect a longer life with the second one .Let me know if you have other questions and if not for now then please do not forget to rate by clicking on the star icons at the top, then click on Submit so i get paid for my time helping you .Also note that it will not close this post , you can come back here at any time if you need further info or help .
