Sounds like you have a dead lamp. This projector seems to have a desing fault where the filtration system is ineffective. Even though you lean the filters, dust buildsup around the lamp and blocks the small airvent flow built into the lamp housing. Lamp overheats and fails. We currently get 600-800 hours from a VLP-EX3 lamp.

Solution - Replace lamp. Ideal solution - Replace projector, avoiding SONY

Sony VPL-EX3 "Lamp cover problem", it wont switch

There is a small switch that detects when the lamp cover is securely tightened down, so that it protects the user from the high voltages, hot surfaces, excessive bright light in the eyes, and damage to the face if the lamp implodes due to old age and overuse.
so check if the switch operates when a toothpick is pushed up and down in the cavity.This model suffers this problem when the cover is slightly warped with old age.
so put a strip of folded paper between the cover plastic protusion that actuates the switch and the switch and secure the cover and see if this is all that is needed to activate the switch properly.

if it now works, you can try putting a small drop of silastic on the cover protusion and wait till it sets over several hours in order to lengthen it slightly so that it reaches the switch properly

Sony VPL-EX3 projector on/off switch flashes green then turns red and the lamp/cover light is orange. Does this mean the lamp needs replacing or could it be caused by some other factors?

Possible that the lamp is faulty -if the hours have elapsed- check the lamp holder, the fitments.
check also the filters, clean and reset.
Make sure the power supply Unit is not having any poor soldering or faulty components to reduce the voltage output to the lamp thus making it shut down..
