I'll tell you what I tran into and how it got resolved...
I experienced the same problem , with the blinking light...
Purchased a replacement lamp..
It didn't work(After market Universal supposably)..
Well..Come to find out.The Replacement lamp's housing looks similar, but the connecters that come out the back of the housing weren't quite long enough to trigger the microbe that activates the lamp in the Television.
Luckily I had the original lamp and it's housing that came with the television..
Took the bulb out of the new replacement lamp
Placed it in the original housing , and BINGO..It worked and is still working...

    I had the exact same problem - replaced the lamp housing with the new but when I turned the TV on again, the solid lamp light became a blinking light. I thought the replacement lamp housing connectors were a little short so I, too, took apart the housings, exchanged bulbs, put the old housing back into the TV with the new bulb and the TV works FINE! Thanks for your comment - I never would have thought to just exchange the bulbs, because the housing looked identical!!!! Happy Holidays! 12-11-10.

I found a solution to some of these problems. I too have a Hitachi 50V715 which started to become dim. I changed out the lamp(using the same enclosure ), installed it and the cover, only to find out the TV clicked once and clicked twice only to turn off leaving "lamp" light flashing. Getting frustrated I installed the old lamp only to find out it still would not turn on. I then knew it was an installation problem. Looking inside the housing of the TV ,in the upper right hand corner there is a small metal tap I noticed that pushes a blue"dip" switch. The metal tab was bent. I straightened out the tab .Also I took a small piece of scotch tape and used it to hold up the tab in an upright position. If you look at the back of your lamp enclosure you'll notice a plastic tab portruding in the upper right corner. This must push the metal tab which engages the blue switch behind it. Installed the enclosure and it "worked like a charm" ! I major problem was the tab was curved and just needed staightening. Hope this helps somebody else.

Ours was still under warranty when that happened and we had a tech come out who installed a larger fan from the original. We haven't had the problem since.

Replaced projection lamp and also cleaned out most of the dust inside the tv. will power on but shuts off before picture comes on tgen three red light blinks. please help asap. thank you.


Three red light blinks shows that lamp cover is not properly closed after lamp replacement. Make sure that the lamp cover is in its proper position. Try to reset the lamp cover and turn it on clockwise direction until you heard a click sound of a micro switch activated by the lamp cover, then put the set on..

Lamp replaced and the set doesn't come on.


Please make sure lamp cover is fixed properly after lamp replacement.

KDF-50a12U Powers off then standby light blinks 3 times


Please recheck Lamp Cover and make sure it is fixed in its space securely as 3 times red blink shows lamp cover error.
There is small safety switch in TV cabinet under lamp cover that has to be pushed by lamp cover if it is fixed in its position properly. That switch is not being pressed by lamp cover and causing this error.
Thanks.

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.

Sony kdf e50 a60 when TV is turned on picture goes off almost immedately and red light starts blinking in stand by mode.


Red light blinking is an indication of lamp problem. Check and secure tightly the following:
  1. Outside lamp cover
  2. Lamp door
  3. Lamp
If all of the above does not solve the problem, you need to replace the lamp. Let the lamp to cool for 30 minutes after unplugging. Use XL-2400 replacement lamp.
  1. Remove the outside lamp cover.
  2. Remove the lamp door.
  3. Pullout the lamp
  4. Hook a finger through the loop of the lamp handle and pull the handle upwards. Then pull the lamp straight out.
  5. Mount the new lamp securely.
  6. Reattach the lamp door. Turn the knob back to "CLOSE" and secure the cover.
  7. Put the outside lamp cover back in its place.

I have a wd65100 when powered on i get steady orange light then status blinks red & green,unpluged for 1 hour tv is working but dark picture


Hi

This issue can be due to ballast fan, lamp or high temperature. However, to figure out this we'll need to check for the TV from inside(wiring & testing the components) or the other way is when the lights blink again then follow the procedure given. After you turn on the set, and get the red blinking lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.

The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.

For example, 4 flashes, then 1 flash = 41.

Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:

12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filter cover is open.
34 = Lamp abnormality
36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 = Lamp Temperature High
39 = DMD Temperature High
41 = Short is detected
44 = DVI cable between FMT and Engine disconnected

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
