Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
Hi , I`m JackPerhaps I can help you with this problem , a few questions coming up and please note that it may take a few minutes between replies;
First one , can you confirm we are talking about the X55R and not the X550R ?
Which 2 lights are blinking orange and red , the warning and lamp or standby/on and lamp ?
O.k and do they blink a numberr of times and pause , for example 4 blinks , pause , 4 blinks and so on ?
yes but you said that 2 of them were blinking .
Is there a blink count between pauses
O.k then did you remove or replaced the lamp lately ?
O.k then it simply means your lamp has failed .
Did you ever replace it ?
Not always , they often fail before the warning appears .
That warning goes by the hours its been working , doesn`t mean your lamp is not going to bust before it does.
The code you have now indicates a lamp not properly install or lamp cover open but that is when you replace the lamp hence my asking if you did so , otherwise the only other option would be a defective lamp , not used up but defective .
You could try to remove it and re-install it securely to see if that will do it
Normally those lamps cost some $300 but if you just want to give it a try then here is one at $40 ;
