I've seen brand new "inexpensive" lamps not work right out of the box. Shipping issues, poor pressurization will kill a brand new lamp. I've seen them work for one day and then lose pressure and not work the next day. Rarely do I ever see a bad ballast in a Sony TV set, they're reliable. And right now, what you're describing is a lamp that loses its' arc and has to restart itself. I'm pretty sure you have a low pressure lamp issue.
