When we turned on the TV, the lamp light turned on a constant red. The lamp light never even flashed green with a warning. The screen was black and there was no image or sound. We tried to reset the TV but it still didn't turn on. We ordered a new lamp and installed it but there is still no image/sound and the lamp light is still a constant red.
We replaced the original lamp about 4 months ago when the lamp light was flashing green but this time there was no lamp warning. The original lamp lasted over two years. Is this a lamp issue or something else? Any suggestions appreciated...

Re: Lamp Light Red - No Screen Image
It could be the a problem with the lamp ballist circuit, or just a bad lamp socket, or simply a bad lamp. The only way to tell is to call out a servicer as that would be alot less expensive then to get a new lamp and then that not be the problem. These problems can be a little hair pulling at times, thats why i have no hair left!! LOL Good Luck

Make sure its an original Osram or Philips bulb inside the housing. If its a cheap lamp it will act this way. If it is an original lamp, then you may have a power supply issue. It shouldn't affect your TV but you may want to try resetting the lamp timer by following the instructions that came with the lamp.
TY-LA1001 Timer reset
While pressing the VOL- button on the projection display, hold down the number 0 button on the remote control at the same time for more than 5 seconds.
Tv probally needed a new tv projection lamp.This tv has not been change it projection lamp like 1 1/2 or 2 years already?Tv been on and used it like 4 or 5 hours everyday?Yes,than the tv flashing or solid on green LED light is on have a word "LAMP" written on it tv bazel frame?Yes,tv 100% require a new tv projection lamp replacement.
When was the last time you replace lamp in your TV? If long time ago (2+ years) - replace the lamp.
If red light blinks in sequence (example 4 flashes, pause, 4 flushes, pause and so on) - then I need to know how many flushes between pauses. It is an error code. If it blinks just constantly - it is a bad lamp.
Probable Lamp. If lamp hasn't bown the red Lamp Lite won't flash but other lamp issues cause stby timer light to continue flashing. If stby red lite is flashing, count the no. of times flashing - could open thermal fuse (6X flashing)
Replace the lamp would be the first thing to try. Lamp door switch on this model is notorious for going bad. If you replace lamp and still won't turn on jumper door switch. If you take off back you can see switch board.
