If the lamp light is flashing you have a bad lamp, this is a user replaceable part. I believe on this model it is located in the front under the panel where the power button is. To remove this panel: on the back of the tv on either side near the bottom edge there will be two screws that can be tuned by hand or by using a coin. You then pull the front cover off it will be a little stiff you need to tug a little bit and you will hear several pops, the pops are the grabbers letting loose, behind and toward the middle of the tv you will see a door, it is also another thumbscrew, remove this door and the bulb is in here, the bulb will cost somewhere in the neighborhood for about $200.00 they are easily available from many electronic shops.
