I have a TOSHIBA 62HMX84 DLP TV. The red lights were blinking

Customer Question

I have a TOSHIBA 62HMX84 DLP TV. The red lights were blinking so I checked the bulb. It was toast so I got a new one and installed it. However I am still having the same problem. Thanks for your help! In fact the television even turns off on its own after a short time.

Hello and sorry you're having problems. I may be able to help but I need to ask for more info.
1) Where did you purchase this replacement lamp from and for how much?
2) Which red light(s) are blinking- is there more than one?
3) When you press power, do the fans on the TV power up?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
1. Apexlamps on ebay for $53.
2. I'm not at home right now so I don't remember if its 1 or 2 red lights
3. Yes the fans and the TV power up and then after about 8-10 seconds it turns off on its own.

Thanks. Troubleshooting isn't possible unless you're at the set, so can you reply back when you are back home?
