Lamp cover error, lamp cover is not attached securely. Please check the lamp cover if deformed. If the lamp cover has been deformed due to excessive heat exposure, replace it with a new one. Sometimes the lamp cover melts due to overheating caused by poor air ventilation. Clean the fan and lamp compartment to avoid overheating....

The 3 blink code indicates that the lamp door is not secure. If you havent removed the door then its probably the switch for lamp door sensor.

I would remove the lamp door and then reinstall it. Do this with the set unplugged then plug it back in and check operation.. Basically sometimes the lamp door switches become dirty and by removing and reinstalling the door it usually corrects the problem..

If this doesnt work then you will need to either have the set checked out by a tv technician or you can try replacing the switch yourself. But as I said normally just removing and reinstalling corrects the problem.. Good Luck!

A lot of these sets had a stupid problem---3 blinks usually means "the lamp door is not properly closed".

What happens here is heat from the lamp warps the door---it has on the back a peg of plastic that when it is installed engages a lever switch--protection so the set cannot be operated with the door off.

If you remove the door and look at it---if it is bowed a little it is most likely your problem---There is a easy way to prove this---with the door removed engage the switch with something not metal ( a plastic shaft or wood match) so the lever which is visable is engaged.

If the set comes on this way--you need to replace the door----There are places on the net and Ebay that sell a replacement---DO NOT BY PASS THE SWITCH AND PUT THE LARGE PLASTIC FRONT PIECE BACK ON---YOU MAY MELT IT ALSO--THE DANGER OF LONG TERM OPERATION WITH THE SWITCH BYPASSED AND THE LAMP EXPOSED IS THE LAMP GETS VERY BRIGHT AND HOT--DO NOT LOOK AT IT DIRECTLY.

HI:
Make sure you replace the lamp door or the unit will not power on. Also make sure the lamp is seated properly, Most people when they replace the lamp they try to turn on the television with out replacing the cover and think there is a problem with the set, there is a safety switch on the lamp cover door that need to be closed in order for the unit to operate.

Also you can check the self diagnostic mode, to see if any faults exsists.
With power off, using the original remote press the display key followed by the number 5 key, followed by the volume down key then hit power. You have to do all four keys within 5 secs for the diagnostic screen to come up. If all goes well check the number recorded on the right, should indicated lamp cover has been removed and if you had a bad lamp it is will record the a number of times the unit tried to light the lamp but failed. To exit press the 8 key then enter to reset them numbers to zero and do process over again and try to turn on tv normally, if it shuts down then go back to diagnostics screen and see what the tv recorder as error.

I'm not sure you want to hear this, but that is a bad optical block (light engine) and is quite expensive to repair. There was a class action lawsuit against Sony for this problem/part and Sony settled by offering customers a discount on a new lcd or led tv. You may want to try contacting Sony about it to see if this offer is still good. Otherwise, it will cost around $800 -$1,000 to get it fixed. I've seen several of these at our shop and it's always the light engine. Good luck!

there is a switch that gets set on with a tab in the door lamp, and it seems like that tab is the one that turns the switch. try to glue back the tab, superglue would do it since it doest need a lot of presure to trigger the switch.

hope this helps
