Is it the Standby/Temp light blinking on the left side of the lights or the Lamp light that's on the right of the 3 lights? On the left is temperature shutdown, right is the lamp. We don't get too many of those failures, so I'd check and make sure the TV's rear lamp cover isn't being blocked by something while it's running. Maybe a curtain is being sucked into the grille and blocking air flowl.
