Yup, it seem a lamp problem can give a blinking green light over the 10 times (1 - 10 times for diagnostic codes), but in my case rather than replace the bulb if it works for a minute then resets with the green light blinking, do what I did.
Take the lamp out and inspect it, it has breather screens top and bottom, if it cant breat because there clogged with dust, clean them, and you can remove the screens, use q-tips and clean the inside. I saved the cost of a lamp and it's working fine!

It's time for a new lamp. What you are seeing is the result of a weak or old lamp and the TV sensing that it is drawing too much power and turning it off. I've seen this many times; a new lamp will cure. Be sure to buy an original Sony lamp as the aftermarket replacements are known to have problems. Please be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

How do i fix my tv


I had the exact same problem. Thought I could fix it by replacing the thermal fuse . . . no luck there. Problem continued. After tons ( I do mean tons) of research, I found the problem to be a temperature sensor. Makes total sense ! ! ! The tv is trying to come on, but the temperature sensor is bad, telling the tv that it is too hot to operate, so it turns itself off - only to try & come back on 30 secs or so later. Hard to fix unless you know your way around tv circuits. Took me bout 3 hrs total.

One of two things can be the problem...one the bulb is bad...two the ballast is bad. If the bulb is not bad then the ballast is...it can usually be fixed by replacing a resistor on the board itself...it is labeled R3 and is a 1000 ohm resistor

TV has gone into "protect mode" to do just that to protect against the damaging failure that has been detected, you will need a servicer to diagnose the failure. Good luck and Merry Christmas!
