Sony Grand Wega - Blinking off and on

I have a Sony Grand Wega LCD TV. The picture and sound are blinking off and on. This comes and goes as it pleases. The green power light stays on - no blinking or any red lights. It stays off through any of the video modes. We checked the DVD player and it did it during the playing of a DVD. Do you have any suggestions.

Thanks

    Next question (you'll excuse all the questions but we have to eliminate things as we go) how old is the lamp? Have you ever changed it? If you have, did you use an original Sony lamp?

I am ordering a new lamp. It will take about a week for it to get here. Thanks for the input and I will try to remember to let you know if that was the problem.
By the way I found it very reasonable at amatteroffax.com. Have you ever heard of them?

It sounds like you may have a bad lamp. How long has it been if you changed the lamp, if ever?

    I am not sure that the lamps at amatteroffax are original Sony lamps. If they are aftermarket replacements, you don't want it. the aftermarkets are GARBAGE and probably won't last like an original lamp does. Also it may have brightness issues. Their price seems low for an original so I suspect they aren't

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.

Sony LCD television will not power on.


I get 5 blinking red lights for about a minute or so before it powers back down. The Sony TV has a specific light that i presume is supposed to light up when the bulb is out. I'm unsure if this is what it is.
no picture, no sound. tries to boot with green light blinking a few times. then goes to red blinking light, six in all, then waits a few moments, then another 6 blinking red light.
Bulb was already replaced several months ago but we do have the TV on for long periods of time.

Sony 57 inch WEGA Projection TV


Hi, this is a very common failure, you need to replace 2 IC chips on your power supply board, marked on the top of the IC`s is this number: MCZ3001D you can purchase them here if you are very proficient at soldering & un-soldering, and the board has to come out of the tv to do this, you might want to call a tv man for this one, but it will fix your set, happy holidays, BMW Rider
