I hve worked on a number of these units , your description is typical of a shorted blue picture tube. The protection circuits in the tv detect that there is a problem thus shutting the unit down to prevent further damage. Sony had a bad run of picture tubes in this series. The replacement cost of the tube is about $250 plus labor. My estimate would be for the repair about $400-500 depending on where you live and how honest your local technican is. I will caution you however, that you could replace this tube and the red or green could go. These would not be covered by the technicians warranty. When these sets are working, they have a superb picture and it is easy to get lured into fixing them. Scrivitron

Lamp replacement on a rear projection television is normally pretty standard, as long as you take basic precautions and follow the instructions in your owners manual you shouldn't have a problem.
You can find the instructions to replace the bulb on page 16 of your owners manual found at:

the picture tube blew out you need to just replace it mine costs 250 if your tv is newer you might still qualify for free bulb replacement like i did but you have to have your reciept to fax to them so they can ship you your free bulb and then you place the bad bulb in box and return. the button blinks you need a new bulb they are good for 2 1/2 years if you keep it on always and use it for computer monitor like I do. but that is what your problem is.
