Just make sure the Box (Lamp Enclosure) is pushed in firmly on both sides, left and right. Left side to hit the power connection and Right side to hit the little relay switch, Must be flush against that back side. It happened to me and I was kicking myself in the ***, a entire weekend went by with a brand new lamp sitting in the enclosure but not completely set in correctly with a flashing red light.

    Also get the outside lamp cover in just right where it touches the sensor and sits flush. That's what helped for me.

I have replaced my lamp in my Hitachi 50V720 and the lamp light keeps flashing.


Make sure that the lamp door cover is properly seat-in. It has a safety switch that will engage to the lamp door cover. If the lamp door cover is not properly seat-in this switch will be on open position that will trigger the symptoms.

Replaced the lamp on a hitachi 50V720, single lamp bulb is flashing red...how do you reset the new bulb?


Hi,no reset, Just make sure the Box (Lamp Enclosure) is pushed in firmly on both sides, left and right. Left side to hit the power connection and Right side to hit the little relay switch, Must be flush against that back side.

TV went off, and three lights come on (green "power", red "temp", and red "lamp")for just a second, in succession from left to right.


My television had two red lights flashing, one for Temp and the other for the lamp. I removed mythe lamp assembly and the bulb filament was burnt out. I order a new lamp and housing unit UX21517 and replaced it and now I have the red light flashing which is calling out the lamp again.

Hitachi model # 50V720


I have the same model and had the same problem after replacing the lamp. Turns out if the cover plate is not put back on properly, tv will not power on and lamp ligth comes on. To solve the problem all I had to do is tighten the cover plate screw. Hope this helps.
