Today when I went to use my TV for the first time after work the red power light stays solidly on and will not change to green....either through the remote or manually. The TV was given to me, I believe it is 3 years old. It had been working fine to this point. Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Re: Won't turn on
Possible there is a problem with your power button try to check it if it is still functional. Read light means standby power meaning your TV still working. If you cannot do it by yourself fixing it try to bring your TV at your nearest TV shop to check the power button.
Hoping for your kind approval to make my rate Solved for this problem.

Make sure its an original Osram or Philips bulb inside the housing. If its a cheap lamp it will act this way. If it is an original lamp, then you may have a power supply issue. It shouldn't affect your TV but you may want to try resetting the lamp timer by following the instructions that came with the lamp.

While pressing the VOL- button on the projection display, hold down the number 0 button on the remote control at the same time for more than 5 seconds.
You definitely have a bad lamp. Sony rates the lamp life at between 4000 and 8000 hours. There are 3 things that effect the lamp life, listed in order of importance: 1) number of times the lamp is turned on and off. Every time the lamp is first fired, it takes life off the lamp. Customers I see that turn the TV on in the morning, leave it on all day and then turn it off on the evening can get up to 12000 lamp hours 2) ventilation. Be sure you have at least 6 inches of open space all the way around the set and that the vents are clear of dust and debris. 3) power. If the power is interrupted when the set is on, there cannot be a proper cool down cycle. The fans will run after you turn the set off to properly cool it down, if the power is lost this cannot happen. If your power is unreliable, buy a small UPS to let the set finish a cool down cycle
Occasionally a lamp will faill before the average lamp time due to being defective. from your purchase date it sounds like you got about average lamp time. Be sure to purchase AN ORIGINAL SONY LAMP as a replacement, becuase the aftermarket lamps are bad news, Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!
