Hello, my name is***** am an independent tech connected to you via this pay for assistance website service. Your satisfaction is my top priority and in return your positive rating is the only way I will receive credit for my time.
This model Tv does not have a "lamp" that you can just replace. Do you have electronics experience like using a meter and soldering?

Can I send you pics of what I see?
Expert:  Mike G. replied 2 years ago.
unplug the tv power cord.
wait three minutes.
plug in tv power cord.
press power button.
AFTER the tv shuts off, go up to the front panel press and hold the MENU and DEVICE/INPUT buttons until the LED starts blinking.
Look carefully at the blinking. It will be in a two digit pattern something like-
2 blinks pause 3 blinks pause repeat
3 blinks pause 4 blinks pause repeat
What is your two digit code?

Did you get my error code message. 2-1. What's the diagnosis?

Sorry for the delay... looks like Mike had to step out. I'm Dan, and I'd be happy to help.
2-1 and 1-2 are very different codes... can you try again and double check?
