Bulb and assembly replacement

We replaced the bulb and assembly but the light is still blinking. we even tried to put the new bulb in the old assembly but that did not work either. Could there be something wrong with the back where it plugs into???

    We have the same exact problem. They kept telling us to make sure the screws were very tight and we did. Now the lamp light is still on, the only differenc is that it blinks., but the tv is still not powering up.

EUREEKA!!!!!! I reached back behind the bulb assembly on the right side, where you can see the flat 'spring loaded' switch and tweaked it forward (so the lamp will push hit farther backward when you slide it in.) WORKS PERFECT. I guess it lost some of its stiffness over time, and needed to be bent a little to make good contact again. SO AWESOME!!!!!!!!

The cover door has to be on blinking light means the door is not on. The one you take off to get to the light assembly

I would try a new lamp. Lamps have varying qualities & usage conditions may cause varying life spans.So, even though the lamp may be 1 year old I would try a new one first.

I have a Sony KDS-50A2000 and when I try to power it on, the green light flashes like normal and then without the screen ever lighting up, the power light flashes red 9 times, then pauses and repeats this...

Now that you have the blink code, Google your make and model with blink codes added to the end. This will show you links to sites that will tell you what the nine blinks mean.
