I have still been keeping my 60xbr1 working, but have had some troubles with overheating (replaced the fan a couple of times), had the optical block replaced (around 6 years ago?), replaced the bulb about 4 years ago, and had to tape the sensor for the lamp compartment down when it stopped making contact. As of today, I am getting the three flashing red light code (lamp compartment), but the bulb looks like it is fine, and the tv refuses to turn on even when I open up the lamp compartment and hold the sensor down with my finger.
Does anyone have any ideas, or perhaps a recommendation for a repair person for this in the Northeast New Jersey area? I would like to get it repaired and cleaned out and get at least another year out of it before I start looking for a new set.
