Mitsubishi WD-52628 DLP HDTV - 8 years old replaced lamp a few months ago (eighth time)... since the latest replacement, occasionally when turning on the set the sound comes on but the lamp doesn't come on and after 1 to 2 minutes the 'LAMP' indicator LED comes on, indicating a blown lamp. Pressing the reset switch with a tooth pick will put the set into timer mode for 30 seconds, When the timer stops blinking I press 'power' and by cycling through this process 1 to 5 times the lamp will finally come on. Could this be a faulty  new (Osram) lamp... or more likely a bad ballast or other issue?
Thank you.

If it wasn't doing it before the lamp replacement I would replace the lamp. I assume the lamp is still under warranty?

I have a WD 65833 and I replaced the lamp in December and it only lasted a few days. It was the OSRAM lamp from a dealer I've purchased from a couple of years ago. I am waiting on the replacement lamp, but I order a new Philips lamp and it has done the same thing.

Any help would be appreciated.
