Hello, A 3 blink code simply means your lamp cover is not closed properly. Did you close the lamp cover yet?

No thanks, ***** ***** take a phone call. Simply reply back here and let me know what's going on.

Expert:  Aric replied 9 months ago.

Okay then we need some more information to see what happened- because the 3 blink code directly monitors your lamp cover.

1) What is the model number off of the back of the TV?

2) Was the light blinking 3 times before you replaced the lamp?

3) Where did you purchase this lamp from and for how much?

I can't take a phone call- sorry. I have no cell service where I am and we are independent techs working in different locations (not sharing a common office). The site sends that offer to you automatically- it's not anything I have any control over. Please simply reply back here.
