Sony KDF-E42A10 rear projection TV. Won't turn on.

Sony KDF-E42A10 rear projection TV. My daughter states she was watching it and it suddenly turned off (no picture or sound). I've tried the Sony recommended restart procedure as well as unplugging from the surge protector and directly into the wall. Its current syptoms are the standby light repeatedly flashing for about a minute, followed by the lamp light flashing until I turn off power. Original lamp, TV is about 5 years old.

Start by changing the lamp. If you got 5 years out of the old one, count your blessings, most folks only get three. The lamp is designed to be replaced by the consumer. Ebay will carry a replacement for you or you can get it directly from rivervalleyelectronics.net. They've got good prices. The lamp door is on the back. Its really easy, give it a shot.

    By the way, surge protectors are a scam to get you to spend more money. They don't protect you in the same way the guys at best buy would have you believe. Think of it this way, how often does your house get struck by lightning? The real problem with surges is brown outs. When the electricity suddenly drops but doesn't quit all together the PSB goes into overdrive to try and compensate. Too many of these will cause premature failure.

That definately sounds like a lamp going bad. I've seen a lot of these in our shop doing same thing and a new lamp fixes about everyone of them. I would definately start there. Just remember to fasten the lamp door back properly when you have finished changing the lamp. There is a safety switch that won't allow the set to come on if the door is not put back on properly. A lot of people forget to do this.

More info please. I assume you have a new Sony lamp installed? Have you closed the outer door for the lamp? When the set fails to turn on, does the front panel light blink a certain number of times? If so, how many blinks?
