I had the same problem with the three blinking lights. I removed the AV cover like in the previous post. I blew all the dust out and gently wiggled all the wires I could get my hands on and viola! It's working again. It's been fine for a week now and it was actually to the point where it wouldn't even power up before I cleaned it out.

After some poking around on the net I happened across a post with two techs talking about troubleshooting this problem. One had pinpointed an area to test (a little beyond the mere mortal thing to do) In any case I found the area and connector they were discussing. To fix my TV that had this same 3-cycle problem, all I did was pull the AV cover panel off and on the leftmost side you'll see a beige board on the left, green on the right. I blew compressed air in the left side between the heatsinks (tall aluminum structures). I then pulled, cleaned, and replaced the closest white ribbon connector between the boards. Afterwards I dry-wiped the bottom of the beige board in about a 2-inch area surrounding the heatsinks/ribbon connector. I plugged in the TV and it's been working for days now. The post had discussed a voltage drop due to resistance in that area so I speculated either a dirty contact or something had gotten on the boards in such a manner as to increase the resistance. My guess paid off. I realize it's probably the lowest-tech fix ever but for now saved me a ton on a repair.

Usually a shorted audio IC will cause this symptom. If not that than possibly a shorted diode or component in the deflection circuits. The set should be worth repair if the picture quality was very good before going out.

Blinking Green Timer Light

I suspect the lamp area is VERY dirty as is the cabinet's filters and fans. This causes great stress on your tv and lamp. Take the time to clean all of them fully. Is the unit in a dirty area? or in a high temp area? DLP's dont like high temp or contaminated areas as they are NOT air sealed units.
