    I too have replaced the lamp and the Tv won't turn on.(red lamp light blinks) I even put the old lamp (which was working) back in and it still won't turn on. Unplugged tv,plugged back in with no result. Old lamp was working. When plugged in it clicks once and goes to red blinking light. Is there some type of "Fail;Safe switch not working when enclosure is put back in. Yes I also put cover on. Any help appreciated .

    Thanks Reg

I have the service manual and it shows two door switches Dr 1 is in the back of the set on rt bottom below the temp. sensor. Dr 2 is at the front panel where you open it to replace the lamp. If one of these switches are open, it would show a lamp problem. If you have a Muiltimeter and can get to the switches see if one of them is open. Hope this is helpful.

Sony Wega KF-42E200A Projection Bulb


New bulb is just fine.
3 blink shows that lamp cover after replacement of bulb in TV is not fixed properly or not seated well in its position.
Put new bulb and carefully place back lamp cover in its position because lamp cover will press tinny safety switch inside that will send signal to system control of TV that lamp is installed properly.
Turn On TV and get vivid picture of Sony.
Thanks.
