Try a reset. Start by unplugging for 1 minute, then plug back in & if still won't restart try the following. If none of the following work, you will need a technician.
Initializing the TV in many cases can remedy a problem.
In the 2006 product line Initialization is now a user function.
Pressing the front panel "INPUT' and "FORMAT"
buttons at the same time activates Initialization. When
complete all user settings will have to be set again. The
table in Figure 4-3 list the User Initialization procedures.
Note: Pressing INPUT and FORMAT is the same as
the Initialization in the Option Menu (MENU-2-4-7-0)

You have replaced your lamp and the set is working fine but the 'replace lamp light' is still on or the lamp light is blinking. What do you do?
This is an important procedure because you need to know when it is time to replace the lamp again. If you do not reset the timer you may run the risk of having the lamp explode, because it was not replaced in time. This can be dangerous and could cause a fire.
Manufacturers have lamp timers built in to their TVs so that when it gets close to time to replaced the lamp you are made aware of this and if you heed the warning you may save money by not damaging other components such as the ballast. If you do not heed the warning, you are on your own and deserve whatever happens.
To reset first make sure the TV is powered off.
1) Point your remote towards your TV.
2) Press MUTE + 1 + 8 + 2 + Power.
3) Your TV should now say "Loading Factory".
4) Browse down to "Option" then press ENTER (or the right cursor button).
Note: The MUTE + 1 + 8 + 2 buttons need to be pressed down consecutively and fairly quickly. If your TV does not enter the service menu after using this combination, you can substitute MENU instead of MUTE. This seems to work for some sets. Also, the right cursor arrow acts as the ENTER button, so try it if you're having difficulty with the ENTER button.
5) To exit the service menu press the EXIT button or just turn the TV off. Do not turn on the TV immediately after. Let it off for several minutes.
This should reset your counter and you will be ready to enjoy your TV for about another 8000 hours.

Hi, Turn On tv. Press and hold Volume Down button on TV Front and PIP/ SPLIT button on Remote at same time for 6 Seconds to reset Lamp Timer and tv will show you timer reset message screen. Hope this info will help you. Thanks.
IT MIGHT BE DIRTY- THIS IS WHAT WAS WRONG WITH MY 52IN AFTER REPLACING THE LAMP LIGHT AND ALOT OF OTHER PEOPLE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM AND COULD NOT FIGGER IT OUT EITHER ?? GOOD LUCK!
I have been trouble shooting this with the dealer for two days and here it is:
The TV sensors are very touchy – and it HATES DIRT so if you replaced the LAMP – go back and RE CLEAN THE FILTER and CLEAN OUT THE LAMP COMPARTMENT with a Blower or a Brush, but first turn off the TV for about 15 minutes. I did not clean out the lamp compartment, and the dealer said that the Fans sense the dirt and will not work because of that.
THEN make sure that your screws are replaced back in the holes in the cover plate that have the little errors over them. The cover plate AGAIN is very sensitive to the functioning of the TV.If you don’t believe me – check it out, when the light is blinking yellow on the status button, PRESS ON the filter cover OR the lamp light cover and see if it the light turns off, because that is what the status light is telling you the problem is about per the owners manual.
Well a clean machine is a happy machine – hope this resolves all your problems and saves everyone a lot of heartache!
Just thought I would share –
Sometimes the same symptom can be caused by the lamp driver (ballast) failing. Also make sure the lamp door and filter door are fully closed. Unplug for 1 min to reboot. When it turns on, you will hear the fans (airflow sound) and then colorwheel spin up (high pitched) and finally the lamp will fire. If the lamp is bad, you will hear the spark gap make a buzz sound for 1 second.. it will retry a few times before shutting down
1) Press the POWER button to turn your TV on. Make sure you are set to Cable/TV reception. If the "replace lamp. Reset Lamp timer" notice appears, press "EXIT" on your remote. 2) Press and hold the VOLUME DOWN BUTTON on the TV set (not the remote, the actual TV set) 3) Continue to press and hold the VOLUME DOWN button and press and hold the PIP (Picture in Picture) or SPLIT/PLAY button on your REMOTE control (your are pressing and holding BOTH of these buttons at the same time now). 4) After 5 or 10 seconds (be patient), the lamp serice menu will appear and say your lamp counter has been rest to '0' (zero). That's it, you are all done.
Now, I continue to have the power shut off after a few minutes of play. I think it is a problem with the cooling fan. Damn it all anyway.
DLPs have flow chart trouble shooting techniques to pinpoint exactly why your set isnt completeing the boot sequence. If you would like the service manual for your model let me know and i will post a link where you can purchase a complete one.
