I have a 55 Sony Grand Wega LCD projection TV (KDF-55WF655).

I have a 55" Sony...
I have a 55" Sony Grand Wega LCD projection TV (KDF-55WF655). Was working fine this morning. Now picture is very dim and goes black for about 10 seconds (standby flashing green) before coming back on. Repeats every few minutes. Just started happening. I just changed the lamp out about 2 months ago. Seems like a power issue?

Place called Laptops for Less, 2995 White Star Ave., Anaheim, CA. Ordered on-line on 4/15/2007. Did not have to replace until couple months ago.
THE SYMPTOM SEEMS MORE LIKE A LAMP. DO YOU KNOW IF IT WAS A SONY OR A PHILLIPS LAMP? THERE IS A COMPANY CALLED LTI THEY MAKE LAMPS THAT DO LAST VERY LONG I SEEN ONE GO OUT IN A WEEK. I WOULD PROBABLY TRY TO REPLACE THE LAMP FIRST.
