It looks Lamp needs replacement.
TV goes to shutdown because of excessive current consumption of weak lamp and new lamp will resolve this issue.

The small power board that powers up the lamp is defective, must be tested and eventually replaced.

    The small high voltage power board that powers up the lamp, often improperly called ballast board, is defective.

    To fix the problem the TV must be taken apart and inspected by a technician , if picture goes intermittently, it is likely a bad solder joint or a loss contact.

    Call a technician before you burn the lamp, and end up spending more money on parts.

    I do not think it is the lamp, when it is the lamp, usually it does not turn on at all, and you get an error message..

    A lamp is expensive, call the technician .

    Here is the manual :

Goes of but keeps clicking then comes back on for a few mins then off again and so on


usually caused by the lamp being burned out, the ballast for the lamp not firing or the power supply board may have failed. first thing to try is the lamp.

My sony tv will not stay on


If you replace the lamp and need to reset the Lamp Timer Reset procedure is: With The Set In Standby Press Display, 5, Vol Up, Power on the remote control Press Jump 3. Or, To Display The Lamp Time Press 2 Nine Times. To Reset Press 3, Mute, Enter. One of these should work on your model. Make sure you replace the bulb first. There is a possibility that the ballast could be damaged by a defective bulb as well.
