You can start by inspecting the lamp, sometimes just by looking at it you can see it is defective. There will be a door on the back of the set usually held on by two screws, remove the door, then you will see a the lamp casing, this will be held in by two more screws, after all that the casing can be removed by a metal handle, lets hope the lamp has a definite sign of being defective otherwise it can be a costly trial error for you. If it does not look blown please call a service ctr. for an accurate diagnosis. Have a nice day and good luck. Make sure you remove the cord from the AC outlet FIRST !

I have a sony 60" wega lcd rear projection. it has been losing picture, going black yet power stays on then 5 blinking lights. turn off then back on and comes up and shows picture like there is nothing...

5 blinks means that the system has detected a faulty or error on chroma board ( often called as C board)..You need a Qualified and well trained service technician to fix the problem.. Some times a reset on 3 LCD connectors solve this type of trouble..

I replaced the lamp and it still doesn't work

You can try to reset the lamp timer. Check your manual to see how. If that doesn't help, your power supply may be bad. Then you should seek a repair service.

Picture & sound go on & off every sec, red light blinks 5 times

helloFive blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.
