Most likely a loose connection. Check all connections and secure tightly. Visual inspection is not enough. You often can't tell just by looking. It may also be a loose solder joint. Had this exact problem last week with my brothers 1270. It was a loose connection on the 'D" board ( I think it was the D board). I also had this problem after I replaced a tube in a 1270. I had to remove the power supply and when I reinstalled I did not secure the connection completely. It was 99.9% tight just needed that extra push to make contact.
I've bought many CRT projectors over the years for virtually nothing because they were advertised as having the same " turns on and shuts off" problem. I would guess 90% of the time it was a loose connection somewhere.

CRT projectors have a lot of safety circuits built in so that it protects the CRTs from damage. It can be anything from underscan to a fan not turning. There is an LED numerical readout which will help you on the side of the projector.

Turn off within seconds...all you hear is a click?

The automatic shut off means that your set has entered to a protection mode. The system of your TV has detected errors. A busted lamp may be a cause. Check out if lamp needs to be replaced.

Screen turns red then shuts off

Sounds like a bad red projection tube, disconnect red tube socket and try again if tv stays on reconnect tube soket and adjust screen controls on front of tv under the front panel which you will have to remove to do any of this. There are six adjustment controls 3 are for focus for each color and 3 screen controls for each color. Look close at the black plastic control module should be labled R G B for focus and R G B for screens. Good Luck!

The guns need cleaned

You will have to remove the front screen to clean the guns, but, I would want to know why you think the guns need to be cleaned. I have worked on projection sets that are 7 years old and the projection lenses are not very dirty unless you live in a very dusty area or you have done some home remodeling.

let me know if you have any more quesitons.

Picture & sound go on & off every sec, red light blinks 5 times

helloFive blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.
