Hi, I'm Nathan.
Sorry to hear that you're having trouble, but I'll do my best to help you. Please give me a few moments to review and reply.

Can you tell me where you purchased the replacement lamp? How much did you pay for it?

I am asking how much you paid for it.

$25? $150?

109.00
TV Technician: Nathan, Installer replied 7 months ago

Okay, I am asking because people often unknowingly purchase the lower cost generic lamps. Some disreputable sellers will also sell the cheap lamps for a higher price.

Those lamps are very poor quality, and often only last a few weeks at best, ***** ***** also damage the tv in the process.

Does the lamp say Philips or Osram on it?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Philips
TV Technician: Nathan, Installer replied 7 months ago

Okay it is a genuine lamp then, which is a good start,

but, that also means this is much more likely a tv hardware issue.

Did the old lamp do the exact same thing?
How long does it stay on for before shutting off?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
it did 30 seconds and all three lights blink on front of tv
TV Technician: Nathan, Installer replied 7 months ago

Are the 3 lights blinking together? Alternating?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
All together
TV Technician: Nathan, Installer replied 7 months ago

Okay that actually is an indication of a bad lamp.

There are other possible underlying causes, but a bad lamp is the primary fault detected by the tvs diagnostic system.

As a next step I'd recommend returning the current lamp to the store where it was purchased and ask them to return/exchange it for you. Then get back to me at that point and let me know how it works or what lights show on the front.
