As these are just old the socket can fail or another part. There are many posts now about this model so I have little to add to the discussions to date. Be sure the door switch is working too.
I just recently replace the bulb/lamp with a Phillips Samsung HL-S6187W HLS6187W Lamp with Housing BP96-01472A and the TV turned on for about 10 seconds and then turned off. Now I have 3 lights blinking and when I look at the manual it says that may be a sign of a defective lamp. It's brand new. Any advice here? Do I need to do anything else?
Any help here is much appreciated!
