Sony SXRD 60A-2000 lamp problem?

Trying to confirm if this a lamp problem as I don't have sound. When I turn on the TV, I hear the click as it powers on and the green light will flash three times, pause and then flash continuously for what I'm pretty sure I counted to be 48 times and then the RED lamp light will flash continuously about once a second. I don't have any sound either.

I removed the lamp door and lamp housing and I don't see any visible break in the lamp wire. Vacuumed everything well including the rear of the tv where the fan is, did a power reset by unplugging the TV and plugging it back in and get the same thing. Red light has been flashing now for about 30 minutes. I installed this lamp about two years ago so it is not the original.

Thanks!

Sounds like a bulb failure, and considering that was a non OEM bulb it sounds like you got normal non-OEM life expectancy.

The red lamp led flashing continuously means the bulb is burnt out.
Page 58 in the manual.

I was pretty sure that was is it but wanted to be sure before ordering one as two years did seem to be a short lifespan and I could not see any signs of it being bad. I did use an original Sony bulb when I replaced it or at least the Authorized Sony store sold me one in a Sony box as I had a bulb warranty but you never know. The thing that was confusing was there is no sound.

Thanks for the confirmation.

There isn't usually any sound because most often the bulb fails when it's turned off and during cool-down the aged filament which as become somewhat brittle or fragile and the filament breaks and is not noticed until you try to power up again and most likely that final surge of power is the fatal blow. They seldom fail during use and even then, there is only a minor pop.
