    now if we hold the button down for 10 seconds it is staying red. but, if we just press power, it still flases green for 4 times, then goes to flashing red.

Sounds like you need a new bulb, or possibly new lamp. The red/green flashing is the warm up to get the bulb ready. If it's shutting down after that, instead of turning on, it means the bulb isn't working - that's a common thing, for the bulb to burn out. Possibly the lamp's bad, but that's much less likely.

    It won't power on a all after changing the bulb? As in, you aren't even getting the red/green light? That is odd. I'm not sure if a bad bulb could cause that, but it seems unlikely.

    Remove the bulb and put it back in, just to be sure it is fully seated properly. Make sure nothing was knocked loose while you were replacing it (and as silly as it sounds, make sure you didn't accidentally unplug it). If you still have the old, non-working bulb, put it back in and see if you get the red/green lights back. If you do (assuming you're not getting those lights with the new bulb), it has to be a bad bulb you added (or possibly the wrong bulb for your unit).

Trying to replace lamp in HDTV and having trouble. Does not function correctly after putting in new bulb. Boots up and then visuals go black and the green power light keeps flashing. Help?


Panasonic DLP TV Bulbs

Make sure its an original Osram or Philips bulb inside the housing. If its a cheap lamp it will act this way. If it is an original lamp, then you may have a power supply issue. It shouldn't affect your TV but you may want to try resetting the lamp timer by following the instructions that came with the lamp.

TY-LA1001 Timer reset

While pressing the VOL- button on the projection display, hold down the number 0 button on the remote control at the same time for more than 5 seconds.

TV will not turn on. Red light flashes 4 times


Try connecting the TV directly to a different wall outlet and check. If the issue persists, try power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue persists, then the TV requires service.
