The other lights are red and don’t know the third color

OK, but I need to know which one is flashing in yellow, if count the light from left to right, these are Lamp, Status, and Timer

Yellow light blinks which is the lamp light

Thanks for the info, flashing yellow lamp light is an error code that means the lamp cover sensor switch isn't closed

Please put the lamp cover back on the TV and tight the screw so the lamp cover will depress the sensor switch, please reply back with the result
