Re: respond doc

Having had to change the lamp I would suspect the lamp thermal fuse is open... It's located over the duct for the fan housing and solders into the ballast board.. Check it for continuity and if open replace it..
There are several thermal fuses in that unit and not all of them as easy to access as the lamp one.
Good Luck

Trying to replace lamp in HDTV and having trouble. Does not function correctly after putting in new bulb. Boots up and then visuals go black and the green power light keeps flashing. Help?

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.

Hello Jeremy,

May be some IC or capacitor is damaged due to which TV is not turning on. Please contact the service center of the Sony. They will repair it properly.

Blinking is a trouble code. Try unpluging for a longer time then hold power button in when pluging back in to try and reset.
