Hi,It sounds like an issue with the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast.The ballast has a sensor that it detects when lamp is not responding or if ballast is not able to provide enough power to light it up,that's when you get the lamp indicator.This is the most common failure .When you put a new bulb in sometimes the ballast is not able to power it since it uses more voltage that what it was providing to the old lamp.The ballast is something easy to replace and it's cheaper than the lamp.Have a bless one!

Power light is flashing 3 times consecutively. When hitting the power button the fan comes on then shuts back down..then starts flashing the red light again..I've recently bought a new lamp and installed...


Put lamp cover back in its place as 3 times blinking light shows lamp cover has not been fixed.
Lamp cover is first thing that you removed to replace lamp in tv, make sure it is fixed securely in its position.

It is symptom of weak Lamp in your TV, replace Lamp with following part number..

Always buy Sony Original Lamp for your Sony TV and avoid aftermarket/ cheap lamps.
