Hi,

This is an error code for "lamp cover" and "lamp itself" not properly seat in to the housing. Re-install the lamp, make sure that all of the connectors are properly connected. Ensure that the lamp cover is attached securely or else the same symptoms will be encountered.

Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Having a problem getting past the red blinking status and orange blinking when trying to start up a NEC VT595 projector. This is after installing a new bulb.


I have had the same problem with my NEC VT695, however, while trying to repair it, I actually broke off two pieces, first the arm that is attached to the lamp cover that depresses the button, and then the actual button itself. Does anyone know any way to bypass this need to have the lamp cover seated 'properly'?

Hi,
If red light blinks 3 times when tv refuse to power up then check lamp cover that was removed to replace lamp, make sure lamp cover is fixed in its position securely and screw is tight.
Let me know how many times red light is blinking after three second long pause IF it is not blinking 3 times.
Thanks.

Try to start sony kdf-50e2000 tv and wil not start and red light keeps flashing. what does this mean?


You will have to replace the lamp which goes every 3-4 yrs depending how often used (Sony XL-2400 DLP replacement lamp).Your instruction booklet will explain this page 76. As further info I would also make sure the lamp comes with the cover which Amazon has it for a total price of around $130.

Tv nt coming on red light is on next to power light 50 inch lcd projection sony tv


hello. it sound's like you need to replace the lamp in your set. and here is how to do it the right way. rember to all ways unplug your set.. # 1 first. .Remove the outside lamp cover. The lamp cover is located on the right side of the Sony television. To remove the lamp cover, simply pull down. You will now have access to the lamp housing. # 2 Open the lamp housing door by turning the locking handle counterclockwise while pulling the door toward you # 3 Pull the lamp unit straight out of the television unit. Be sure not to touch the bulb, as it may still be hot. # 4 Slide the replacement bulb into the lamp housing. # 5 The lamp will slide securely into place.!!! "Do not" touch the new bulb as it will cause damage to the bulb and result in malfunction. # 6 Push the lamp door back into place. Turn the locking knob clockwise to secure the door in place.# 7 Slide the outside lamp housing cover back into place on the television.!!! plug your set back in to the wall & The television is now ready for use. thank you
