    Same problem! I replace the original lamp with a new one that resulted in the blinking lamp light. I figured I received a bad or wrong new lamp, wrong, when I put the old one back, which was still working, it didn't work either and the lamp light is blinking????????????

Check the lamp switch that is located inside the door. Place the lamp in, and stick a flathead screwdriver in the slot (just make sure it moves) hold it there, and turn on the Tv. If that doesn't work check the new lamp, is it a generic lamp, if so they dont always work. If you still have your old orig lamp, take the old lamp out of that housing, and out the new lamp in the old housing. This should fix the problem.

    If you have a blue circle in the middle of your screen, your light engine is going out.

As a follow up to my problem with the blinking red lamp light, I did check the lamp switch and actually pulled it back to be sure it was making contact as well as the switch inside the lamp box. What I found out was that you need to put a little extra pressure on the lamp box when you insert it and I actually felt a click as the electrical connector seated together which I did not do the first time. I tightened up all screws and covers and everything worked again. Found out that the new lamp doesn't fix the red blob or the blue light in the center of the screen. I will tackle that one next with Hitachi?????

On that particular model I believe there is both a lamp indicator light and then the power indicator light. If it is lamp related the lamp indicator light (LED that looks like a sun in a cup...) would be on.

If the power indicator light is flashing red to green, that is a self diagnostic code, and you will have to contact an authorized Sony repair fascility for them to translate the problem. The error codes are not listed in the user manual, since most are not user serviceable.

NO PICTURE OR SOUND


Hi
Usually, if the red light is flashing and you get no picture, that means that the lamp life cycle is finished and you'll have to get a replacment lamp. the lamp has about 3000 hours of life (2 to 3 years under nomal use).

You can buy a replacment lamp from here

Dead sony


The $1200 was for the lcd engine not the lamp. You should change the lamp. The buzz is the power supply trying to light the lamp.

Lamp Light Red - No Screen Image


It could be the a problem with the lamp ballist circuit, or just a bad lamp socket, or simply a bad lamp. The only way to tell is to call out a servicer as that would be alot less expensive then to get a new lamp and then that not be the problem. These problems can be a little hair pulling at times, thats why i have no hair left!! LOL Good Luck

My 60" lcd projection tv wont turn on sometimes and throws a lamp light, and if i watch tv for a while and turn it off it wont turn back on and throws the red lamp light


The buzzing sound you most likely hear is the ballast trying to fire up the lamp. I would say replace the lamp and yes they can act up at will. If this is the first lamp replacement ever then you are doing good.
