With projection TV's the lamp is usually the cause for cycling issues. The lamp power supply (ballast) monitors the current drawn by the lamp and adjusts voltage to keep the current at a specific value, if the ratings fall outside of spec the TV will cycle power and attempt to correct the anomolie. If this happens too many times within a specific time frame the TV can refuse to turn on and will indicate an error code. Don't put the TV through too many retrys or you could damage the ballast too.
Lamps can cost between $200 and $400. The ballast can cost anywhere from $150 to $250 approximately. Usually the manufacturer of the TV will sell you a new bulb, but electronics suppliers often sell them for less. Most lamps are owner replaceable and easy to do, consult your owners manual.
In-home servicers can base their labor charge on the size of the TV. The larger the TV, the higher the labor cost. Do it yourself and save!
