Won't turn off

I'm having the strangest problem. My TV won't turn off, and also won't display anything. I replaced the bulb about a month ago, and everything has been fine. But today, I turn the TV on and it won't display anything. Just a black screen. And the front green light is blinking. And I go to turn it off, and nothing. Power button does nothing. Fine, I'll unplug it. It turns off (obviously), but as soon as I plug it in, it turns itself back on and still won't turn off. I left it off all day today, but as soon as I plug it in, back on and black screen.

Any idea what could cause this? Being a problem with the bulb seems unlikely, because I can't see how that would stop me from turning the thing off.

I got a few of the white dots of death after having the 61" 650 since it was new. I found a 65" LG 4k (65uf7700) new for $1k and just jumped. Now I have to figure out what to do with the sammy... I might fix the chip and replace the bulb and sell it, or just sell it as is for cheap. decisions!

My 2008 HL50A650 DLP as of just now, after 7 years and still running the original bulb, after my DISH box decided to do its nightly reboot an hour and half after it should have, when I was not home and watching it and it should have done it then, when everything came back up the box was and has been a tad wonky but my DLP now cycles on and off on its own. No clear indication as to what the problem is by the LEDs flashing in any particular order. They operate as they should when the unit is turn off and right back on. When it goes off and is coming back up I hear whining noise from the back. But when it comes back up, it is as if nothing ever happened. The bulb, although is 7 years old and has well over 10,000 hours on it, is working just fine. The only way to stop the cycling is to unplug the TV. But when plugged back in it starts cycling all over again. Prior to the DISH box rebooting the TV was up and running just fine.

I did a search here and on the Internet and can't narrow this one down. I swear I have seen it discussed here or some where and just can't find it.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
