This is a fan issue, most likely the large fan in the rear, lower left (from the back)...
Here's the fix, I promise, it's EASY........
Ok, I think I have the answer for the BIG FAN failure. I recently did a similar fix on the spindle of an xbox 360 and it is identical. Ok, this is an EXTREMELY EASY FIX...
Open the back of the tv, locate the large fan (on the lower left on the back of the set.) unscrew the screen and remove the fan.
Once the fan is removed, you will see the side with the model number and the other side is totally open.
On the open side, pull...
The fan will come off, into your hand, it is only held by magnets...
You will notice a spindle on the fan and the other side has the magnets and the hole where the spindle came from (this is the fan motor).
Clean both the spindle and the hole (motor) with a q-tip. The hole is smaller than the q-tip, but do the best you can to remove the old lubricant.
Get a bit of WD40 and lubricate the spindle and spray a touch in the hole.
Put them together, reconnect your fan, test it on startup and thank me...lol...
HOPE THIS HELPS!!!! IT WORKS, TRUST ME...

Pull off the back pressboard. At the bottom left hand corner is the power cord that attaches to the power supply board. There is a white plug that attaches directly to the power cord. With the TV power off, pull this white plug up to disconnect. Then push it back in. Then plug your TV back in and press the power button on the front of the TV. I just did this and it is working fine.

I have the 50" SXRD TV and have expereienced many of the same problems as other owners. Sony replaced the optical block at no charge after the screen yellowing effect took place. Recently, I have the TV shut down with the flashing red light blinking in sequences of 4. After unplugging the TV for a few minutes, replugging it, and turning it back on, it worked again. However, this was not a pemanent solution as the problem returned. After reading several posts here, I turned the TV to look into the fans and voila, the one on the left was not spinning.
I took the back off of the TV (9 screws) and took apart the fan housing to vacuum everything. In addition, I vacummed everything else I could see. After putting it back together, the problem was solved. Save yourself a repair call. Get out a phillips screwdriver and a vacuum cleaner. Thanks to the posters on this site!!
