Hi All, noob here, first off, I've spent the last few days reading through this thread, looking for the same problem I'm having, got to mid twenties before I figured I'd just ask. Anyhow, I've got the 56mx195, had it almost two years, it's not the primary tv, so I use it maybe once a week for a movie, if that, the longest it's been on was for the super bowl.
I unplugged it to do some remodeling, moved it to our master room, without picking it up/jarring it etc. It sat for almost a month before I plugged it in, it blinks the yellow light three times, manual says it's normal 'boot up mode' Problem is it stays that way, display is off, and the power buttons do nothing. I was almost hoping it's the lamp because I still qualify for the replacement, but the led blinking code does not match anything in the manual. Oh, I also left it plugged in for a few hours to see if the boot mode took a while, and it was still blinking away, thoughts??
