Re: Replaced bulb. Still doesn't work.
Make sure the safety switch or the lockout switch is not activated. Usually near where you opened up to replace the lamp. Sometimes the switch is visible and other times it isn't. IF you can see the switch, manually hold in and see if set turns on then. IF it does, you have just solved your problem. IF it doesn't it could still be a bad power supply or better known as a ballast powersupply. Listen for a buzzing sound. That is better know as the powersupply trying to fire up the lamp. If u hear that it is most likely good. Also, Keep in mind, that the new lamp could be bad!! Just because it is new, Doesn't always guarantee that is GOOD. Try these things and get back with me. Good luck....GURU JAY

New bulb is just fine. 3 blink shows that lamp cover after replacement of bulb in TV is not fixed properly or not seated well in its position. Put new bulb and carefully place back lamp cover in its position because lamp cover will press tinny safety switch inside that will send signal to system control of TV that lamp is installed properly. Turn On TV and get vivid picture of Sony. Thanks.
3 times blink error code shows Lamp Door is not seated / fixed properly, please recheck it and make sure that door close safety switch is pressed as this switch sends error signal to system control chip.
I have a Sony KDS-50A2000 50 in. HDTV Television. I just replace the lamp because I got the message that appeared on the TV. Lamp needs to be repaced. I replace with a Sony lamp and now TV cut off after 2 to 3 hours off watching the TV. Any Idea what is going on with this TV
My Panasonic PT-50LC13 when turned on has a green light for a few seconds you can hear the fans turn on and then you have a yellow/amber light that starts to blink 8 times i have replaced the bulb and the door is closed any ideas?
TIGHTEN THE BULB --AFTER YOY CLEAN THE DUST OFF THE BULB VENTS ON THE BULB ITSELF. PROBLEM SOLVED. EASY--CHEAP. Hey it worked for me. My picture was turning off blinking 29 times for picture 37 times for audio. This was the first issue with my KDF-55WF655 since I unwrapped it almost 5 years ago......... ITS STILL ON!!! I hope this helps someone.
Please answer this question. Were the 4 bulbs visabley bad; say broken or did they have a milkey look, or broken wire inside? In other words did the bulbs you replaced look as good as a new unused bulb? Please reply.
I think this sounds like my problem (need to replace the projector lamp). However, when I hit the "on" button, my SXRD 50" blinks green for about a minute then starts blinking red. Can you confirm the bulb solution? I was very pleased with this sight when my fan malfunctioned. I got the fan in a matter of day's from Sony and it fixed that problem.
