THe green light comes on and then in 2 seconds the TV shuts off. We purhased this TV about 10 years ago so its heavy and old. Was working fine yesterday. Tried to turn it on today and its just shuts itself right off again.

Model number given indicates it should be a 2000 year model.
If so, it should have the self check feature; try to turn the set on and when the green light goes off: On the front of the set press and hold both the menu and input buttons for at least five seconds and then release both buttons.
Power light will blink a two digit error code like: 2 blinks,pause and 2 blinks (2,2 error code is most common one). It will repeat the error code several times.
Let me know what error code you find and I will tell you what it may mean.

Hi, Symptom shows Lamp is weak in result and causing restart of TV again and again. Your TV requires new lamp as per following part number... A1085447A* LAMP BLOCK ASSY XL-2200U It is available in Sony Accessories Store for $200 and replacement procedure is written in instruction manual of TV.
Always buy Sony original lamp for TV and avoid aftermarket / cheap lamp for TV safety.
I had this trouble with a Sanyo tv about 10 years ago (still using it). The repair person said it was to do with the sound and replaced some part. Has been ok since. Cost me about $100 back then, when the tv was only about 2 years old.
How old is this TV?
Sounds like it has high voltage failure.
(If you hold your hand on the screen when you try and turn it on, do you feel the static? )
Unless the set is over 10 years old, I would overhaul the high voltage circuit. Should cost under $200 at a shop.
Its the BULB people! You need to change it every 3 to 5 years! I have had my sony 55" for 6 years... I had Best Buy come out 3 years ago, changed the bulb... it worked fine. Just started flasshing and shut its self off and back on again. Time for another bulb.
A 10 year old RCa most likly has a bad Horizontal output transistor as well as the main High Voltage transformer and The transformer is no lonmger available from RCA. The replacement wont last longer then a year if your lucky. My advice on a set this old ?? Buy a newer one!!
