How to fix 3 flashing lights?

Look for a thermistor near the lamp and ballast

Look in the owner manual, 3 blinks ought to mean lamp door not properly closed.

What if that code is what I think it is means heat from the lamp has warped the door in front of it.

Let me know if you know how to get at the lamp door (its in owner manual and you would know if you have replaced the lamp) and I will explain how once the door is removed to see and prove if it is the issue or not--no soldering, no tech stuff--show you.

How often do you have to replace the lamp on a 56DR650? Replaced in April of last year and is now exhibiting same problems.

Average life on a OEM lamp unit is 2,000 hours which usually works out to 2 years (unless you use it a awful lot of hours).Bad color wheels in these sets usually exhibit a high pitched sound or fan like noise--even heard a few that sound like a garbage disposal.The wheel faces the lamp so if you can remove the lamp and look at it to see if shattered or missing pieces.Someone posted instructions for the replacement online--let me know as it is on my bookmark list now.Only way to know (other than taking lamp out and finding it shattered inside) is to replace it.May be the lamp again, maybe the Ballast that drives it etc, kind of like starter on car turns but car will not start.Try to look at turn on to see if lamp even fires for a moment--then inspect color wheel etc. If you want the URL for the installation of the wheel let me know.SD TECH

Panasonic PT-61DLX76-K TV, no picture, red lamp indicator flashes once every five seconds. Bulb looks okay visually. Panasonic says bad ballast I need confirmation and service manual.

Lamp should be replaced in average every 2.5 years. Bad lamp could look OK but it is not.
Replace the lamp first if it is older than 2-3 years. You have to do it in any case. If new lamp will not
work, only then you can start thinking about ballast replacement.
If you are OK with the screwdriver and you have technical skills you don't need service manual to replace ballast. You will need to remove rear cover and locate it near the lamp. It is not too hard.

Refer to your owners manual on lamp replacement. Remove the old lamp and look at it. If it looks "blown" (like a flashbulb) then it is defenitely defective.
