    I was getting a message for several weeks that my lamp needed to be replaced. I kept putting it off, until one day, the tv shut off by itself! When I tried to turn it back on, the light just kept blinking green. I replaced the lamp a few days ago but the set is still not coming on!! Just a blinking green light : ( I called Panasonic and they walked me through reseting the lamp meter (turn volume down while simultaneously holding the PIP button down for 7 seconds) but it didn't work! I've checked all the vents but there's no clog! I can't figure out what's wrong!!! HELP!!!

Sony tv model kds-60a2000

Please count the amount of blinks before it pauses. The number of blinks will say if the door isnt latched all of the way or if the thermal fuse has popped above the lamp area. Hope its a 6 blink as that is the thermal fuse which is easy to bypass or replace.

Trying to replace lamp in HDTV and having trouble. Does not function correctly after putting in new bulb. Boots up and then visuals go black and the green power light keeps flashing. Help?

Panasonic DLP TV Bulbs

Make sure its an original Osram or Philips bulb inside the housing. If its a cheap lamp it will act this way. If it is an original lamp, then you may have a power supply issue. It shouldn't affect your TV but you may want to try resetting the lamp timer by following the instructions that came with the lamp.

While pressing the VOL- button on the projection display, hold down the number 0 button on the remote control at the same time for more than 5 seconds.

There is a tiny reset button to the left of the timer light. Press with a pin or something small, wait 60 seconds. Viola!

Tv cuts off and green light flashes

Yup, it seems a lamp problem can give a blinking green light over the 10 times (1 - 10 times for diagnostic codes), but in my case rather than replace the bulb if it works for a minute then resets with the green light blinking, do what I did.
Take the lamp out and inspect it, it has breather screens top and bottom, if it cant breath because there clogged with dust, clean them, and you can remove the screens, use q-tips and clean the inside. I saved the cost of a lamp and it's working fine!
