When I turn the power on all I get is a blinking green power light and nothing else. The lamp is new. The cooling fan does not appear to be running like normal either.
I have heard of lamp ballast issues or power supply problems. How can I determine what is the problem?

Re: No Picture No Sound
Check the lamp first ,it could have blown.If the lamp looks good consider the following,The power supply gives the ballast the voltage it needs to strike the lamp,its hard to tell without doing some voltage measurements,you can not measure the output of the ballast but the voltage from the power supply to the ballast yes.

Does anything start to work? Any of the three fans start to turn, Lamp ignite, etc., when you press the power button or does nothing happen before the Red LED starts blinking. How many times does the RED LED blink?
You definitely have a bad lamp. Sony rates the lamp life at between 4000 and 8000 hours. There are 3 things that effect the lamp life, listed in order of importance: 1) number of times the lamp is turned on and off. Every time the lamp is first fired, it takes life off the lamp. Customers I see that turn the TV on in the morning, leave it on all day and then turn it off on the evening can get up to 12000 lamp hours 2) ventilation. Be sure you have at least 6 inches of open space all the way around the set and that the vents are clear of dust and debris. 3) power. If the power is interrupted when the set is on, there cannot be a proper cool down cycle. The fans will run after you turn the set off to properly cool it down, if the power is lost this cannot happen. If your power is unreliable, buy a small UPS to let the set finish a cool down cycle
Occasionally a lamp will faill before the average lamp time due to being defective. from your purchase date it sounds like you got about average lamp time. Be sure to purchase AN ORIGINAL SONY LAMP as a replacement, becuase the aftermarket lamps are bad news, Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!
i also have the same problem with the flashing green light for a while then a different red light starts blinking on and off around 5 times....and i replaced my burnt bulb with a new one...still no picture.
