Only get Welcome screen and green blinking lite. Then shuts off. Buttons locked out also. Need to get software update V41C-11.3 Go to support then software update. It will ask for model, ser. First and Last name and E-mail. download.
Has a link about 1/3 way down that will go right to the download. Very helpful.

TV PIcture and Sound Shut Down

it would appear its shutting down in a protect mode
its possible its a convergence circuit problem or something on the deflection bd
but it most likley will require some assistance from a tech that is used to working on this type of set
if you noticed when it does come on that the colors are all off line then suspect convergence circuit trouble the the green leds tell you what source is still alive there is a chart in the cabinet that will correspond with each source voltage that can lead you to tracking it down if you know what to look for and have the tools to do so

Green flashes then tv turns off

or a new lamp. you could first replace the lamp.
the screen might work fine for a couple of seconds, but then it fades away or deteriorates. This means the lamp is going bad.

Minium is the green picture tube need to be replaced, if you can take the front cover and access panel off there is a control with 3 focus and screen controls.
you can adjust the 3 screen controls to possibly get a little more time out of it before the crt's need to be replaced. careful if you turn them down too much there will be no picture, and if you turn them too high the tv will go bright and shut off
