Hi Vinod

I would suggest you to take out the lamp and check for any damage or discolouration to it.

I'm sure that you'll find this to be the problem , in which case you will have to replace the lamp.

Blinking yellow light for lamp cover and will not start up

check that the lamp cover is not bent up slightly due to old age, and the little switch underneath is activated when the cover is installed

How to rest lamp timer vpl-es4 - reset < > enter - doesn't seem to work
That's the link, to reset this unit, it seems you must hook, up with an RS232C cable, and "Talk" th the Projector, You simply hook up, using any terminal Program. such as, Hyperterminal. I think you need to get a manual.
I looked but could only find, pay for links, for the service manual. You really need this if you own anything it is worth any money, as in it is the information, the the engineers that service them, use to troubleshoot and fix, special codes, and settings the lot. So it is a must have.
