Replaced Sony Wega lamp, but tv still does not work.

Hello. I have a Sony Grand Wega Model # kdf-50e2000. I replaced the lamp, but the Standby light flashes red 3 times. I referred to the owners manuel and chatted online with sony support, but I their suggestions did not help. I checked everything to make sure it was properly installed. I checked the lamp, the lamp cover, and the lamp door. When I turn on the tv, the fan starts and runs for 2-3 seconds, then it shuts off and the standby light flashes red 3 times. I took off the back panel of the tv set, and checked if the lamp cover connects to the sensor properly. It does. Do you think that the fan on the side of that unit could be the problem? It starts then shuts off after a couple seconds. The Standby light turns green at first, then after everything shuts off, it flashes red 3 times. It looks like it is easy to replace. I don't want to call a technician because they want to charge $99 just to come see if they could diagnose it.
