I'm having the same issue now. Did you ever figure out what was wrong with your unit? Was it a bad lamp? Mine is only 9 months old, low hours, but perhaps a bad one? Can't understand why it would light sometimes but not others.

Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.
For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.
Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:
12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filter cover is open.
34 = Lamp abnormality
36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 = Lamp Temperature High
39 = DMD Temperature High
41 = Short is detected
44 = DVI cable between FMT and Engine disconnected

Flashing green standby led light at the front panel is an indication that the unit waiting for the lamp to turn on. Since the lamp led light flashes, the unit sensed it already burned out.
Faulty lamp driver has a different error code which is "flashing of the standby light 5 times".
Your unit will back to normal operation again after the lamp replacement.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!

From your description of the lamps and after looking at the error chart for the unit I believe that you have a problem with the lamp door. There is a switch on the cover which can get moved or misadjusted while replacing the lamp. Sometimes the door is just not closed properly. I have a tip at which should help you solve the problem.

You have to reset the lamp timer. Turn the power back on. While pressing the VOL button on the projection display, hold down the PIP button on the remote control simultaneously for more than 5 seconds. The screen should show something that says "LAMP TIME WAS RESET TO 0. The lamp indicator should go out.

My sony bravia kdf-e50a12u turns itself off

Hello Abasama:
Ok so you have gotten other assistance and no luck huh..
First where did u purchase the lamp, Look at it and make sure its a phillips type lamp, Most sites will sell you a lamp made by LTI these lamps are of poor quailty and proformance. IF the green lamp light is flashing along with the red light, The green is in most cases the lamp light error indicator, the red one next to it is the Temperture indicator. first your need to determine how may flashes the light are indicating, You could have a Bad thermistor which is located on the lamp housing itself, its use to report the lamp temp back to the main signal board. But this error code usually gives 6 flashes and 5second intervals, and repeats ifself. I have an Ebook I wrote for these types of error codes which might help you. So this is what i want u to do.

1. First turn off television
2. In sequence using your orginal sony remote that came with the set, press DISPLAY KEY, 5 KEY, VOL UP THEN PRESS THE POWER BUTTON, you must press all 4 buttons within 3secs or it will not work. the set should come on with a dianostic mode menu, with options like Fans, lamp, lamp hours, lamp door etc.. some menus are different but all sony televisions uses these code to access the diagnostic screen. Next to the options are recorded error numbers the number of times a perticular error has occured. Example (Lamp Driver----------4, or Lamp door-----------1. this indicated that the lamp door has been removed once.
or Lamp Driver has either failed 4 times or the unit tried to light the lamp 4 times.. Just remember that the number to the right represents the number of times and error has occured for that perticular function. This simple menu should lead u in the right direction for solving your problem. One note i forgot to mention, the lamp driver error also could mean the lamp itself is bad and not the driver(Ballast). Also when you have solved your problem go back to the diag menu and hit the 8 key on your remote to reset all error options back to zero. to get out of the menu just turn off power with remote, you can do this first after you see what error is being reported the go back and see what it records to futher help you troubleshoot your set

Hope this helps, I sell the Ebook for 19.95 which shows you this procedure and how to replace your color wheel and so on..
you can email me at

Good luck..

Green light flashing & no picture on Toshiba 40pw13p

There is problem with the lamp. It might need to be replaced. The lamp unit is on the bottom-left side of your TV. Loosen thumb screw (by hand) to take the the lamp unit door. Using a screwdriver, loosen two screws of the lamp unit and carefully pull the lamp unit out.
Put a new lamp in reverse order.

Lcd sharp tv flashing green light

Try unplugging the unit and while unit is unplugged hold the volume up button and channel down buttons down and while depressing both buttons plug the unit in. Let go of the buttons and the unit should come on in the service mode. There will be a small k on the screen. With the sharp remote press the channel up button once. This should bring up a menu that will show a lamp error line. If the lamp error is = to 5 the unit is in lamp error shut down. User channel down to highlight that line and curser right arrow to highlight the lamp error #. Hit the enter button to clear the lamp errors. Now unplug the unit and let it sit for a minute and plug back in. I hope this corrects the problem. If the unit does not come on by doing this or if it does and you do not find lamp errors the power supply pcb may have been damaged by the surge.
