3 times red light blinking indicates that Lamp Cover has not been fixed in its location properly after lamp replacement.
Please make sure lamp cover (its first thing that was removed to replace lamp) is installed securely.

I have a Sony Wega SXRD. First issue was the

No. Could be a bad ballast this time. That is the box that energizes the gas to produce light. Bulb has no filament.

My sony kds-r50xbr1 turns on for a second then turns right back off no red lights flash. Today I just replaced the lamp and it was working fine for about an hour but then went back to the same problem.

If you already replaced the lamp and still have the same issue, that means you will need to replace your ballast, of course there is no need in returning the lamp, since eventually you're going to need one.

Sony kds-r50xbr1 turns itself off and then green light blinks 52

I too have a Sony KDS-R60XBR1 tv and the issue that you are experiencing is due to one of your fans in the rear of the tv is not working.  The tv automatically shuts off in protective mode.  Make sure the POWER/STANDBY light is blinking and not the lamp light below it.  Is the power/standby blinking 4 times in red? If, yes then its a fan that needs to be replaced.  If its the lamp light blinking then you need to replace the lamp.  The lamp is easy to replace by ordering the lamp either from Sony for $250 or find it cheaper for approx. $150 from other DLP sources and replace youself by following your manual.  I hope this helps you.
