My TV sounds like it is powering up and makes a low whirring sound but the screen never turns on. First, I get a flashing green "power/standby" light with a constant red "standby" light, then the green "power/standby" light turns off and I get a constant flashing red "lamp" light (I counted 11 until the TV powers down.
I have replaced the lamp numerous times in the past. When I look at the lamp, it does not look burned out. I have read that the problems sometimes is a "spark gap" related to the use of a non-Sony lamp. Is it worth trying a lamp exchange? Or is the problem larger, such as a broken driver ?? Someone please help!

You might need to replace the lamp driver. How many hours do you have on that lamp?
