You should have checked the troubleshooting section of your manual!! Okay, enough scolding. You need a new lamp. I do enjoy my Vivitek, but this is a definite downside of a DLP, especially if you watch a lot of TV. I am on my third lamp already, and they are NOT inexpensive. If you have your TV less than a year, your lamp may still be covered under warranty and may be replaced by Vivitek for free. If you have to buy your lamp, it can easily cost you over $200. This is the new lamp in a whole new assembly, which makes installing it EXTREMELY EASY and will just take a few moments. If you are a little more adventurous and want to save some money, you can buy the lamp alone. You then remove the lamp assembly from the television, open it up (there's several screws to remove), disconnect the old lamp, and reverse the process by making the proper connections with the new lamp and putting the new assembly back together and back into the television. It sounds more complicated than it is.. Biggest rule.-- don't touuch the surface of the lamp with your bare hands. You don't want your oils on the lamp. . And once you put everything back together and restart the TV, reset the timer for the lamp (the manual explains how). The lamp timer is very important for warning you of when to replace the lamp under ordinary conditions, when it does make it through its entire expected life. I don't know if it's appropriate to actually recommend specific vendors for the lamp, but I can if that's okay. email me midlomiss at yahoo dot com

I have a 56" model that I have had a similar problem. My bulb burned out in <90 days. Warranty was 90 days on the bulb itself. When the TV picture goes out, the indicator LEDS blink on and off.
Here is what you have to determine:
1) First cover the left LED with a piece of paper so that you can't see it blinking. I don't know if your layout is the same as my TV. You may have to switch the paper blocking the LED.
2) Pay attention to the other LED and READ its' flashing code. In my case, the code was 2-3. It would flash 2 times, pause briefly, then flash 3 times. This meant code 23. That indicated the bulb was burned out.
3) If you look in the manual, It does have a code list of some sorts to tell you of the codes and their meanings. Hope this helps.
