Hi , I`m Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem .

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

first time it didnt start back up
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

O.k then i was just wondering if perhaps this was your first time and were not aware of the possible door /cover problem .

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no what door cover problem
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

This 3 blinks code indicates either an improperly seated lamp or lamp door not installed securely .

Usually the latter is the most common .

Unplug the tv`s power cord and remove the door and lamp and re-install everything securely .

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Hopefully that's all that will be needed , in some case it requires manually defeating the lamp door switch

Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

Sony even had a service bulletin on this and on later models simply did not integrate that switch , it was causing too much problems

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Cover worked but all i have is snow
Expert:  Jack replied 1 year ago.

O.k then that problem is fixed , now check your connections and if you have snow I`d say mostly check the INPUT or what sony calls TV/VIDEO on its remotes , press that repeatedly to get back to the cable box or whatever it is that is connected to this tv

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
