Check the fan that cools the bulb. It is directly behing the bulb. It should turn on when the power comes on. It apparently has a safety to protect your tv(and home). mine is in the process of going out. looking for online solutions as we speak.

Hi,It sounds like an issue with the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast.The ballast has a sensor that it detects when lamp is not responding or if ballast is not able to provide enough power to light it up,that's when you get the lamp indicator.This is the most common failure .When you put a new bulb in sometimes the ballast is not able to power it since it uses more voltage that what it was providing to the old lamp.The ballast is something easy to replace and it's cheaper than the lamp.Have a bless one!
