service technican or not...

the tv went blank today. changed the bulb. the tv is on for about 5 secs before the light incators go red, both are red. i have audio without a problem, perfect tv for 5 secs, and everything turns off.

when the tv is off the indicators are red and orange. when turning on the tv the lights are a blinking orange and cont orange. then it is solid green and orange with a pic for 5 secs. the picture is off and the lights are now solid red and a blinking red until it turns itself off completely to the original state red and orange.

i double checked to make sure the bulb was replaced correctly and it is. everything is put back including the exterior plate/cover which allows the tv to be turned on.

i dont know if i need a service tech to come out and do something to the tv.
this forum is loaded with info and i thank you for more

It could be the ballast. I would have the repairman look at it though.
