50" Sony Bravia KDS-50A3000 Rear View Projection TV issue

This TV is about 9 years old. Occasionally, its Power LED will turn blinking red, and shut down the TV by itself. It's been doing that for several years, and lately, it's more noticeable. If I manually turn off the TV, unplug it, and wait for few minutes, and it will turn back on and seems to be OK.

Owern's manual says, power LED will turn red when TV is in diagnostics, but when it turns red, it blinks and it shuts down the TV. What can be the problem, and how can I possibly fix it? Could it be something simple as a bulb? There is no picture quality issue as of now.

The LED will blink a trouble code. It will be repetitive. Try counting the blinks and then post back.

If your TV is 9 years old on the original lamp.... then it may be time for a replacement.

The lamp has been replaced 3 times during 9 years. It blinks in a series of 3 blinks (power LED) after shutting down by itself. 3 blinks > about 2 seconds > 3 blinks > about 2 seconds > and keeps repeating.
