Obvious your power supply internal supply blown a fuse or in shut down mode due to short. I guess since you have a light the 5v supply is working but power supply makes many voltages to work your set properly probable at least 5 diffent voltages. one or more maybe shorted ...shutting down the power supply's higher voltages. it gonna take a tech to fix it. good luck

I have a sony kdf 50e-2000 the green light goes on then it goes to thr red blinking lamp light. I have no sound or picture. If I replace the lamp light will I get sound and a picture again?

Yes, if you have not replaced the lamp since you purchased this TV.
Lamps usually last about 6000 hours.
I've seen lamps last much longer than 6000Hrs, it all depends on the usage.
Remove the lamp from the TV and do a visual inspection, see if there's a crack on the glass or the bulb.
If the TV is few years old then the Lamp may be bad.

For a new Lamp: 800 638-3328
DO NOT BUY the lamp from ebay

Good luck to you.

Did you replaced lamp in last 2-3 years in tv? If not, then its lamp that got broken and tv needs new lamp.
Lamp replacement procedure is written in user manual and its easy, please buy Sony original lamp for good picture in tv.

The tv picture goes out

Sounds like the ballast has gone out. Samsung recommends replacing the smps board(power supply board) when you replace the ballast because it is the smps that takes out the ballast. replacing just the ballast ,machine may work ok for a short time but will destroy the new ballast fairly quickly.

Samsung HLP4674W - changed bulb - still no picture - lights flash

If the lamp has been replaced I would think the Lamp ballast would be most likliest followed by the color wheel and then the Digital board. You can get any part needed for your model at just leave them a email they respond quickly.

Sony LCD Projection TV turning!!!

Look carefully at the front lights. Usually when these sets shutdown they have a blink code on either the standby light or the lamp light. Update this with those counts. In the meantime, you may be seeing a problem with heat. If the lamp area gets too hot, the set will shutdown the lamp. Once the area is cool again, the lamp will fire.

Update this and we'll hopefully fix the both of them.

TV Picture Goes Black

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.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions
