Is The Problem The Lamp Or Something Else

When I power on the tv, the lights (power, temp, and lamp) on the front panel blink and then the lamp light stays on. I assumed I needed a new lamp but the set did the same thing after I installed the new lamp. I've tried leaving the set unplugged for several minutes but this didn't help. What else might be wrong?

The tv won't come on it gets power but no picture and on the indicator lights on the control panel only the lamp indicator comes on and just blinks. Did the lamp go out?

The manual says if the lamp light is blinking to check the lamp cover. If it is the temp light that is blinging check that the fans are not locked or shorted.

Turn tv on and red light blinks with no picture or power

according to the manual (I'm having the same problem), it depends on whether the TEMP light is blinking, or the LAMP light. There's a good trouble-shooting page in the manual (available from Good luck - to me too. :)
