Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I look forward to assisting you today with your question and providing the best answer possible.

Please look through the vent holes in the back of the tv, and tell me whether the lamp is staying lit the entire time ?

Do you see any red standby lights blinking on your TV ?

If yes, then please note the blink sequence of the red light and tell me.

For example - 3 blinks pause then turns off.

Thank you,
