The reason your lamp blew so quickly is the the lamp fan has become cloged with dust. this is a known problem by sony and I have done 15 or so of the up grades needed. first look at the lamp door is it discolored and warped. if so have a tech order the up grade kit which includes a new door, siraco fan, thermal fuse, and lamp. the return fan may also be needed. also some service menu changes need to be made with the fan voltages of fan 1 and fan2.

One of the most common problems on this units, after the lamp, is the thermo-fuse. Its a little device that is install close to the lamp, it has a conector, usually black, with two wires; it should ck continuity. Ckeck that out. Good luck.

Tv shutting off then comes on


your lamp is going out, they last around 2 years, on the average, this is easily replaced by you, door is on the right side of the tv, you can take the lamp out, if it has a bubble on it, it is getting ready to go out
