This model is equipped with a self-diagnosis feature to help with diagnosis of shutdown problems. To activate this turn the unit on let it shutdown then press the input/device and menu buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold them in for 5 seconds after 5 seconds the power LED on the front panel will blink a two digit sequence. This will be one set of blinks a short pause then another set of blinks, this will repeat 5 times. 1 - 2 = no error detected 2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current) 2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies) 2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection) 2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source) 1.

I had the same problems that most of you have been having, tv turning on and off, lights flashing in all different colors, having to unplug tv to reset and all of that good stuff. I noticed that most of the time this would happen once the tv would start to heat up, and I could hear the fan working a little harder. Well I am not an electrician but It was very simple to unscrew the lower bottom park of the tv, where the fan and most of the electronics sit, then I used an oxygen tank ( I work for a medical company ) to blow out all the dust in the tv, ( you can olso use the compressed air use for computer, but if grandma or grampa have some O2 laying around, it works really good, LOL. )and was very surpriced to see how dusty it was, then I removed the MAIN FAN ( you only need to remove three screws, however there's a box in fron of it, which you'll have to remove first in order to get to the fan ). this may sound a little complicated, but trust me it is not, once you have taken the fan off, clean it all the way around ( best to use a clean rag, the compressed air was not doing the job.
long story short, once I cleaned the fan and put it all back together. The TV still didn't work LOL, Just kidding, It has been working perfect for a little over a week.
If I can help in any other way, please e-mail me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
hope this helps.

SOURCE: Green flashes then tv turns off
OMG! My TV has been sitting in a closet for the last three years because I couldn't afford to have it fixed. I have googled now and then trying to find a cure for its green affliction but never found the right advice until tonight. I can't thank J19666566666 enough!! I just followed the instructions and presto! Working TV again! And just in time for the Oscars (which is like the Super Bowl for me).
The editor in me tweaked the instructions a little...
Its is real easy to fix. There are 2 screws holding the front speaker cover on near the bottom corners (there are plastic plugs covering the screws that need to come out first). Unscrew and remove the speaker cover (pull it out from the bottom a little then sort of down and out to get it loose but be careful because there are wires attached). Next remove the 4 screws holding the particle board panel in place. There will be a cluster of 6 adjustment nobs with a drop of white paint on each one (2 rows of 3 - do not touch the top row). The green is controlled by the bottom middle screw, Using a screwdriver turn it counter clockwise (to the left) ever so slightly (1-3mm) and there you have your TV back. Use the bottom right screw to adjust the red and bottom left screw for blue.
Thanks again so much!

Thats the error for lamp driver error. Which means the Ballast is most likely defective. You can get the replacement ballast for your model at the following link which comes with installation instructions.

On some projection models of Sony TV sets, this code means that T8005 (flyback transformer), or the associative components in the high voltage circuits are defective on the D board.
