It could be the a problem with the lamp ballist circuit, or just a bad lamp socket, or simply a bad lamp. The only way to tell is to call out a servicer as that would be alot less expensive then to get a new lamp and then that not be the problem. These problems can be a little hair pulling at times, thats why i have no hair left!! LOL Good Luck

Have you tried checking the socket to make sure there is voltage present and that the contacts are making connection with the bulb. Sometimes melted plastic blocks the connectivity of the contacts of the bulb with the contacts of the socket. Use a voltmeter to check for the voltage on the socket contacts.
I hope this helps,

When TV does not start, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that means that the TV is on protect mode.
Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.
Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.
If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.
The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.
1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.
2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.
If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.
If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.
Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.
Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.
If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual
If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Symptom shows tv needs lamp replacement as existing lamp is reaching to end of its working life and causing that problem.
If you have not replaced lamp in last 2-3 years, replace it to fix the tv issue. I can explain why tv shuts down itself and turns back on.
I do not agree with info provided about bulged capacitors in power supply so please do not take off back of tv unnecessarily.
Lamp replacement procedure would be written in user manual and let me know if you need to download manual copy.
