Turns on and off green LED flashes until TV turns back on.
Replaced bulb 6 months ago TV worked fine when problem first occured last week I pulled bub out and cleaned the screens on the top and bottom of bulb they were clogged. TV ran for several days with no problems and a great picture. Today back to same problem turns itself off then back on green LED blinking continously till TV turns back on. When TV first starts it sounds like two fans start then one turns off it appears to be the one that cools the bulb, the one in the back of the TV that cools the complete cavity and vents out the back keeps running fine.

Re: Turns on and off green LED flashes until TV turns...
This is a symptom of a bad lamp. for some reason it won't spit out a lamp error. shaking up the lamp will sometimes fix temporarily but you will find replacing to be the answer. if your tv has a fan error, you will get 4 red blinks.

I am having the same problem as mg2low. I changed the lamp, but my Sony KF60WE610 still will not turn on. It flashes green several times then it begins to flash red. Can you recommend some trouble-shooting for me? Thanks, Richard
I have the same TV which had the same issue ( green in picture ) - back on 10/2007. I called Sony. They had their technician replace the optical box ( factory defect ). There was no charge for the repair even though TV was out of first year of warranty. Call Sony.
alright guys...blew a bulb....fixed that. still didint work...found out it was ballast...replaced that. tv worked for a month..all the sudden hdmi input didint work id plug in my playstation and screen would turn green and say "hdmi color has been corrupted" im thinking wtf? so a week later it works fine then just turns off in middle of watching espn... comes back on an hour later...only to turn off again...it just turns black for ten seconds then just turns off and the red and green lights blink at intervals of one second....replaced a bulb..not that, same problems.......when the tv comes on for the ten minutes before it quits working the pic and sound are great i just dnt get it...is it shorting out? color wheel bad? a fan?
Very similar problem with my LS47P1. Here is the scoop (I work for a retailer which carried these and I bought one)
- Epson has admitted that there is a flaw in the engineering of many newer bulbs (that is ones that were made after the initial release of the LS47P1) - Apparently the 3 little metal contacts on the lamp tend to get "squashed" down over time once the lamp has been installed (this takes a little while, like 2 weeks to a month after the replacement lamp is installed). - The contacts no longer make a connection with the inside TV side contacts and the electrical charge needed to ignite the gases in the lamp does not get through (like 9 out of 10 times) - You can get it to work temporarily by pulling out the lamp and carefully pulling the inside contacts upward to make a better connection inside. NOTE: I did this for a while everytime it didn't work and after a while the pieces of metal became worn and would break off. So do this only if you have an extra lamp handy or you're on your last witts (as I was).
HERE'S WHAT TO DO: 1. Call Epson of America (I am in Canada, but they are the ones to talk to anyway) 2. Tell the first person who answers the phone to transfer you to the Livingstation (rear projection) department. If they start telling you that it will take like 48 hours and they will call you back tell them "NO! put me throught now!" 3. Tell the real tech expert your issue. 4. Get him to send you out a non-defective lamp (these ones have been retrofitted to not get "squashed" in the TV. 5. Put new lamp in and cross your fingers....
If picture quality is poor, be sure you aligned the bulb in the correct manner and be sure the cover for the bulb is not loose. Also, you might want to re check you picture setting as it might have gotten reset when you pulled the plug (I hope you pulled the plug when replacing the bulb).
Heres another solution (maybe temporary) to the problem of no picture and no sound for 30 seconds. I had my tv's power saving setting on "standard" before. After I switched it to "reduced", the problem was fixed. It has been almost two weeks without the problem. I think its a good fix until the new bulb comes in the mail.
I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
