ALL 3 LED'S BLINKING ON THE FRONT IS A LAMP ERROR BUT COULD BE SEVERAL OTHER DIFFERENT PROBLEMS -LAMP, BALLAST, DMD PCB, OR THE POWER SUPPLY THE FIRST CHECK I WOULD MAKE IS TO SEE IF THE BALLAST IS GETTING 300V. TO DO THAT TAKE A METER AND PLACE THE LEADS INTO THE BALLAST CONNECTOR COMING FROM THE POWER SUPPLY. IT IS A BLUE AND WHITE WIRE PLACE THE RED AND BLACK LEADS IN EACH SIDE OF THE CONNECTOR. IF YOU DONT HAVE 300V IT IS PROBABLY YOUR POWER SUPPLY. IF YOU ARE GETTING 300V YOU COULD HAVE A FAULTY BALLAST OR DMD PCB. IT COULD ALSO BE THE LAMP EVEN THOUGH IT WAS REPLACED LAST YEAR IN THE END THE LAMP IS JUST A LIGHT BULB. IF YOU CONFIDENT IT IS NOT THE LAMP I WOULD START BY CHANGING THE BALLAST IF YOU HAVE 300V SINCE IT IS THE LEAST EXENSIVE. ALSO CHECK TO SEE IF THERE ARE ANY SWOLLEN OR LEAKY CAPS ON THE BALLAST OR POWER SUPPLY. THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH TV'S THAT ARE 3 OR 4 YEARS OLD.
