Sony tv that flashes red

Hay guys I have a Sony projection tv. This sucker flashes red a few times then turns it self off. It acts like its getting hot. It has been doing it more often now. If you wait a few minates it will turn back on for an hour or so then do the same thing. The red light flashes on the front. Is the red bulb going bad? Thanks for your help.

First, look to see if the red is blinking a specific number of blinks or not.

Second, how long since the lamp this set uses was replaced and if it was, was it a Sony or Generic lamp?

I have a 60' sony wega r60xbr1 i just had a new light engine installed last night the tv was never turned on afterwards . I turned it on the screen come on shut off imediatly the red led flashes 4 times...

LOOK IF YOURS IS A SONY I had a sony grand wega 60 inch with the same problem as many tv turns on shuts off the red led FLASHED 4 TIMES. it is a heating issue if one of the three fans inside are not turning when the tv is on even on the first few seconds of turning it on the tv will send a fault code of four flashes . Then the tv shuts off so it wont burn its self up or damage the optical block. all with this same problem of 4 flashes take a flashlite and make sure your fans are turning if not that is your 4 flash problem. I hope this helps someone and if it does i have done my job .

Green flashes then tv turns off

or a new lamp. you could first replace the lamp.
the screen might work fine for a couple of seconds, but then it fades away or deteriorates. This means the lamp is going bad.
