Replaced lamp, sound but no picture

Try unplugging the set for 5 minutes and then replug it in, allow 70 seconds for it to boot up (LED stops blinking). See if it works then. If not press the input/device button and menu button at the same time read a 2 digit code (blinking led) flashes first # short pause and the flashes 2nd #. This will be necissary to determine your cause. Most common besides lamp is power supply caps that cause intermittant operation.

sounds like the DM3 isnt powering up the ballast to light the lamp or the ballast may be faulty. i would suggest trouble shooting the DM and ballast voltages.

No picture

Sounds like it could be the entire light engine.  The part is available on the Internet, but it runs $700 - $1200 without the lamp (although it sounds like you could use your existing lamp without a problem). These parts, however, are notoriously hard to find and may be backordered for months.

May not be worth the cost, but that's up to you.
