    Similarly, mine starts up but after moments with a  streaky blue screen, it shuts down.  My prior Mitsubishi lasted years and years trouble free.  Pretty disappointed in this one as a consequence.  The dealership/techy suggested unplugging for a half hour and try again.  No benefit was realized.

Sony LCD Projection TV turning OFF!!!

I also have a Sony KDF-42WE655 42" Lcd television. We just changed the lamp (bulb) several weeks ago and has noticed that everytime we turn on the television it stays on about 30-40 seconds then cuts off. After about 15-20 seconds it cuts itself back on. Weird!! It must have something to do with changing the bulb!?!?
