SOURCE: projector problem
I generally fix this by re-seating the bulb housing. Take it out and put it back in. Look for cracking at the base of the bulb on the mirrored surface. It could be a barely functioning bulb that isn't busted, but can't initialize. I would take it to a shop that has the same bub type in a housing and make a quick switch.

check the wireing in the new bulb . My new one had the wires in the wrong holes like if there are 4 slots in the connector then my orignal was in slots 1 and 4 the new one was in slots 1 and 3 so I took the wire out and put it in the #4 slot and put it in and unpluged the machine and did a reset and restart and it came on green. Hope this helps.

I had this same problem with 2 NEC VT595 projectors. My problem was that there was a broken "tab" on the lamp cover (the plastic cover that slides in place over the lamp) that is supposed to depress a switch which insures the lamp cover is in place before operating the projector. The tab was broken in half and not making the connection there for causing the blinking status light (.5 sec on, 2.5 sec off) indicating a lamp housing or cover error.

I have done this on several of our PT-LB50U's with sucess every time.Remove lamp cover and lamp.Then remove top of case by removing 6 screws on bottom.Remove metal shroud that would cover lamp 2 screws and remove 2 screws that hold lamp plug and move it away.You will see a little blue lever for saftey switch move it back and forth from top and bottom put back together and should turn on.

I think it's a lamp driver issue from what I've seen others have gone through. I also read that if you go through the sequence of unplugging, plug back in, wait 20 seconds and try to turn on, multiple times, it will finally kick on and work. I just got mine to turn back on by doing this and waiting through the fan cycling without the light turning on. After the 4th sequence the light flickered. After the 7th sequence it finally turned on and is working. Now I can watch the Super Bowl and will look into replacing soon.
