The Lamp Ballast p/n 6316000009B could be bad if you already swapped out the lamp with a known good one as you can't tell by looking at them if they're bad. It may be worthwhile to have a technican look at this set as it would be an expensive mistake if the ballast is not bad.

Tv light standby red just keeps blinking after replacing bulb

Hi,
If red light was not blinking before lamp replacement and after that it start blinking 3 times then pause for three seconds and again blink, check lamp cover that has not been fixed on tv or it is not fixed/ seated correctly there.
Lamp cover is first thing that you removed from tv to replace lamp.
Hope these info will help. If red light is blinking other than 3 times, let me know how many times it is blinking along with tv model number written at rear to provide you helpful info.
Thanks.

Power light keeps blinking Red and TV will not turn on

Is the light blinking constantly or is there a long pause then more blinking. If constant check the lamp door switch . Usually it is broken or jammed. If you jumper it and the set comes on that it. 4 blinks is bad fan.

Tv not turning on

I also have this model. A few months ago, when I turned on the tv, it told me my lamp was in need of replacement. just yesterday, my tv did the same as you....the blue light flashed and then the lamp light kept flickering. All I can say is your lamp needs to be replaced.

Power light blinking continuosly

First off check your lamp or replace it. You can never have too many lamps..........in the last minutes of overtime ! Are you kidding Me! If lamp doesn't work, you will need to find qualified servicer. Try craigslist or tv repair in yellowbook

Green light blinking, tv won't turn on

Lamp lifetime is not 100% predictable. A lamp may fail without notice, although this is not usually the case. The picture is more likely to become noticeably dimmer as the lamp nears the end of its lifetime.

While there is nothing wrong with using a lamp until it fails, some customers may want to purchase a new lamp and replace the existing one when they notice that it is aging.

If the lamp fails in a Mitsubishi MicroDisplay TV, there will be no picture on the screen and a red front panel LED indicator will illuminate.
