Try replacing the lamp cover with a new one, if that does'nt work then it could be the sencor for the lamp cover, and if that does'nt work then contact your sony dealer and see what they can do.

Sony grand wega 3lcd light is flashing red 3 times


Three flashes is lamp cover/lamp position error, it means the lamp cover is not set right, or the lamp is not in the right position. There are two micro switches to detect the lamp position, and lamp cover. Please reset the lamp and the lamp cover (door).

Lamp blew, picture went then sound also. Replaced lamp, now will not turn on. Red light flashing on front switch panel.

Hi, i have recently replaced my projector lamp, as it would not power up when switched on the main led on the power button just flashed, after replacing the bulb the light continued too flash, i took all...


It could be the lamp life needs resetting or the filter life needs resetting. Hopefully so, otherwise it could be a faulty lamp module.

Good luck

Ok we're back to the flashing lamp cover LED. The green flashes you are seeing is the TV trying to start up. After it tries for awhile, it will eventually shut down and display an error code, in this case, the lamp cover LED flashing which means either the lamp cover, filter cover or main cabinet sensing switches are not closed, are intermittent or have some kind of wiring issue. A solid lamp cover light (no flashing) would point to the lamp and lamp drive, but the flashing light points to the switches. Give me an email address and I'll send you the training and troubleshooting manual so you can see for yourself. Any ther help needed, please don't hesitate to ask.

3 times flash of standby light shows that Lamp Cover is not mounted properly after replacement of Lamp.
Please fix lamp cover properly because cover has to press protection switch in circuit.

Sony CS5 Wont turn on


the cover switch is probably not fully made.
Ensure that the cover tangs are pushing the pin
on the miniswitches.
Try putting slight pressure on the fan or lamp cover to see if the lamp/cover light
stops flashing.
you will need to do a restart on the PJ to check this out

Lamp/Cover Error


I had the same problem with a "Sony VPL-ES3" projector. The lamp cover light would flash and the projector wouldn't turn on.
I think its a problem with a filter cover. This fixed the problem for me: 
  1. Plug out the projector
  2. Click off the filter at the bottom of the projector.
  3. Plug the projector back in. (the lamp cover light should flash)
  4. Plug the projector out again.
  5. Put the filter cover back on.
  6. Plug the projector in again and it should work fine.
This has worked for me every time I have had this problem.
