Re: tv will not come on

The tv has to supplies, one is a reference that drives the cpu and turns on the HV side when everything is good. If the cpu dectets an improper voltage it will cause a protection fault preventing the set from powering on the High voltage. This can be do to the power supply, Zsus and Ysus boards. If your good with a meter, you can check for shorted caps or fets on these boards and find the problem. This is done with the tv unplugged.

Tv cuts off and green light flashes

If your set was manufactured around July 2005, you may need a firmware upgrade to solve this issue. On the Sony website you can enter your model # and serial # to see if you TV is affected. If so, it is easy to have done and may be free from Sony. It sounds like the issue they described in the writeup on the required formware update. I had mine done within few months of when i bought it (purchased in Dec 2005) and it has been working flawlessly since.

Good luck!

Tv will not turn on--- flashing red led

I'm sorry, I don't have a solution, but I seem to be having a similar problem. When I turn my TV on, the green light comes on like it's powered up, but then the TV turns itself back off and the red LED light flashes. I can't do anything to turn it on or anything.
