Sometimes the same symptom can be caused by the lamp driver (ballast) failing. Also make sure the lamp door and filter door are fully closed. Unplug for 1 min to reboot. When it turns on, you will hear the fans (airflow sound) and then colorwheel spin up (high pitched) and finally the lamp will fire. If the lamp is bad, you will hear the spark gap make a buzz sound for 1 second.. it will retry a few times before shutting down

I have been trouble shooting this with the dealer for two days and here it is:
The TV sensors are very touchy – and it HATES DIRT so if you replaced the LAMP – go back and RE CLEAN THE FILTER and CLEAN OUT THE LAMP COMPARTMENT with a Blower or a Brush, but first turn off the TV for about 15 minutes. I did not clean out the lamp compartment, and the dealer said that the Fans sense the dirt and will not work because of that.
THEN make sure that your screws are replaced back in the holes in the cover plate that have the little errors over them. The cover plate AGAIN is very sensitive to the functioning of the TV. If you don’t believe me – check it out, when the light is blinking yellow on the status button, PRESS ON the filter cover OR the lamp light cover and see if it the light turns off, because that is what the status light is telling you the problem is about per the owners manual.
Well a clean machine is a happy machine – hope this resolves all your problems and saves everyone a lot of heartache!
Just thought I would share –

Could be the fan. It will cool tv but could also be to much for tv to handle.
You can also try reseating the lamp. It may say ok but be wrong.

Most likely the lamp is burnt out (indicator goes to constant red status). Replace lamp (get lamp P/N from User Manual for replacement), clean any dirt around lamp, fan, and rear filter. Do NOT get any fingerprints on new lamp.
