no, had the same problem. Its the lamp ballast also called the lamp power block. It supplies power to the lamp, any how some repair shop wanted $450 to fix it, so i ordered the part from sony, part #146879816 ($116.25), trust me this is the part I double checked with many different places. Any how fixed it my self took about 15 minutes, just take the back cover off and the part is right there just kind of follow the screws and the 3 wires, super easy job, I suggest you replace the bulb at the same time, dont by a cheap bulb just get it from sony

it works!! First i took off the front panel. Just check your manual
for instructions, very easy to do. If you do not have a manual just
down load one from google.. The instruction are easy to follow. The
screw they have you loosen with a alan wrench is attached to the
plastic, so you do not have to worry about dropping it inside the tv.
Removing the lamp was simple. once out you will notice on either side
are two small mesh screens. One of mine was 80% blocked with dust, the
other side was only 30-40% covered. I used a vacuum to remove the
blockage, i did not want the dust and dirt to go inside the bulb. i
then cleaned all around the lamp. Reinstalled, and we are go to go.
The kids are happy and i am happier since my wife not be buying a new
TV. if this does not work it is time to replace the bulb.
total cost of repair $.00
time required to fix, less than 15 minutes.
Also when my TV was loosing sound and picture and then return. I did turn off my TV, then turned on. I nothiced a red blinking light. Mine flashed 5 times. After some reserch, 5 times is video related, bulb or video board. google red flashing light with the model you have and you will find what all the codes mean.
So if yours is flashing 5 times try the above, it might work for you and it is well worth the time before you call a tech and drops hundreds of dollars.
hope this helps.

SOURCE: Screen Goes Black
it sounds like your "lamp" is going out look for a hidden compartment.. or in your owners manual to see where its located its an easy fix and costs much less than a new tv

This sounds like the backlight in your monitor has gone. I have seen this a bit in samsung LCD's. You can usually tell this by getting a torch and shining it on your screen. By doing this you should be able to see the display on the monitor.
The first thing to do is check the monitor is under warranty. Samsung have fairly lenghty ( 3 years i think) warranties with them. If it is under warranty they will replace it no questions asked.
Otherwise, you could try your hand at replacing the backlight yourself. I'm not too sure of what is involved in this, but know of people who have done it and said it was fairly easy.
I hope that helps, please don't forget to rate my answer if it does.

SOURCE: TV turns off/on
I had the same problem on my TV (had it for 2.5 years) tried to clean the bulb, but it still did the same thing. So i replaced the blub and the problem went away and the screen is brighter now. Sometimes it just about that time to replace the blub anyways.
