Well as you can see if you can't get the set out of this mode by re-inserting the lamp and re-trying (close lamp door too) then those switches that cause this will need to eiether be replaced or shorted out... not a job for a novice or if you can't use a soldering iron

Also, when I went to insert the lamp cover, the plastic tab on it broke. I can get the cover back on, but does that tab (on the right) have to hit any kind of sensor?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
you don't think the new lamp I purchased is the problem? I just want to be sure that the new lamp is not defective.
Electronics Technician: Anthony, Technician replied 2 years ago

Yes that knob hits the microswitch that tells the electronics the lamp door is closed and its safe to fire up, you will need to glue it back on exactly the way it was

That is your problem

Electronics Technician: Anthony, Technician replied 2 years ago

No its NOT the lamp, the only thing that could have happened is you purchased a cheap copy lamp and that can cause other issues but not this one

I did buy a cheap lamp off Amazon. Before the door piece broke, I was having the same problem. The lamp did feel like it was not "seated" properly. The replacement lamp looked exactly like the one in the tv. What other issues could this lamp cause?
Electronics Technician: Anthony, Technician replied 2 years ago

No its NOT the lamp causing the 3 blinks! please put the knob back on the lamp door with glue make sure you get that right then try the set again with the ORIGINAL lamp in, if it works I would send the copy lamp back and get your money back I cant tell you the endless trouble we have with them but its NOT causing your issue

unlees you had another issue and compounded what you had with the breakage of lamp door

I have replaced this lamp before, 3 times. Like before, the tv just went blank. That was the impetus for my ordering a new lamp, as I had done 3 times before. It feels like a short must have happened then, right?
Electronics Technician: Anthony, Technician replied 2 years ago

No you broke the knob on the lamp door for the 3 blinks fix that then let me know what happens after, you cant move forwards till you stop the 3 blinks

Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question
Electronics Technician: Anthony, Technician replied 2 years ago

You have created a fault by breaking the knob

Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question
Electronics Technician: Anthony, Technician replied 2 years ago

That knob hits a switch

Ask Your Own Consumer Electronics Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Okay. But it feels like I did need to replace the lamp, given the fact that the tv went blank. I now think I need to get a new lamp door. I will have to order one of those and try again. If that fails, then it's time to move into the 21st century and get a new tv.
Electronics Technician: Anthony, Technician replied 2 years ago

There hopefully is a part-number on the lamp door, just google that if there is, that will get you out of 3 blinks and into whatever issue you had in the first place, if it is the lamp please fit a genuine one those ones are simply no good that you got
