Tv will shut off and red light will flash 3 times

If its Sony KDF-42WE655 TV that goes to standby and LED blinks 3 times then check Lamp Door that seems not fixed properly.
That happens when lamp replaced in TV.
If its different model number TV, let me know exact model number.

After installing the XL-2400 Lamp unit. This is the blub and housing. I turned the TV on and after a few moments the tv turned off and on the front of the tv where the power light is it is flashing red.

Please make sure lamp cover is reinstalled securely after replacement of lamp in TV.
If lamp cover is not fixed properly, TV wont power up and red light will start blinking.

Wont power on

The blinking red light means that the projection bulb ($150+/- online) needs to be replaced. The access door is located lower right side and replacing is staight forward. Sony has a problem with the Grand Wega that it is denying resposablity for. Check it out by Googling "MSNBC problems with Sony Grand Wega". I would like to get a class action suit going.
