First, Thanks for helping me fix the initial Problem: I had the "Eternal Blinking Green Light". I took the box up to my TV Repair Store & had him replace the 4 "Popped like a Coke can" 15V 1000ui caps with 4 new 1000ui 35V caps. Then I brought it home & installed it.
Green light STOPPED blinking......Thanks a million! Now...when I Power ON the TV it comes ON for about 5-6 seconds clicks & Powers OFF on it's own. What the heck is going on? I have tired head.....I thought I had it fixed!
Please share with me what you think it might be or is. I reset the TV & pushed the MENU button for over 10 seconds....and still the same problem.
Silver Lining: At least we fixed the "Eternal Blinking Green Light".
Thanks in advance for your assistance & recommendation(s)....

Re: Powers ON then OFF after only 6 seconds?
The caps you're describing are in the power supply of the DM and a very common problem. Another problem in that same box is the E2P module. The E2P is a small board towards the rear of the module plugged into the module with a multi-pin connector. Unplug the E2p and re-install the DM and see if the unit powers up... If it does the picture won't look very good but at least you'll know if the E2P is keeping it down.. If it still won't power you've eliminated the E2P as a porblem.
Next let's take a look at the error code for some clues. This model is equipped with a self-diagnosis feature to help with diagnosis of shutdown problems. To activate this turn the unit on let it shutdown then press the device and menu buttons on the front panel simultaneously and hold them in for 5 seconds after 5 seconds the power LED on the front panel will blink a two digit sequence. This will be one set of blinks a short pause then another set of blinks, this will repeat 5 times. 1 - 2 = no error detected 2 - 1 = X-ray protect (high voltage or beam current) 2 - 2 = Short protect (short protect monitors low voltage supplies) 2 - 3 = Deflection protect (this could be loss of vertical or horizontal deflection) 2 - 4 = Vertical protect (usually loss of vertical from the source)
Then, let me know what you find...

Try a reset. Start by unplugging for 1 minute, then plug back in & if still won't restart try the following. If none of the following work, you will need a technician.
Initializing the TV in many cases can remedy a problem.
In the 2006 product line Initialization is now a user function.
Pressing the front panel "INPUT' and "FORMAT"
buttons at the same time activates Initialization. When
complete all user settings will have to be set again. The
table in Figure 4-3 list the User Initialization procedures.
Note: Pressing INPUT and FORMAT is the same as
the Initialization in the Option Menu (MENU-2-4-7-0)

I had this similar problem TWICE!!!. I called around for a repairman and they charged over $300 dollars to repair (HELL NO). Anyways I took a trip to Vegas hoping to win some of the money to repair it and left the TV plugged in and BLINKING during my trip. When I came back it was not blinking anymore and I got curious. Well I pressed the power button and to my surprise IT TURNED ON!!!!. A month later I moved to a different house and unplugged my TV to move it and when I plugged it in the DAMN BLINKING GREEN LIGHT OF DEATH was back. Well I thought I'd get lucky again and leave the blinking on, well 2 days later the blinking was gone and ONCE AGAIN MY TV WAS ON...... I hope this helps and works for other people. My point is, before you pay for a technician to repair it and before you give up on your TV and unplug it, Try leaving it on BLINKING for a few days and see what happens.
I get 5 blinking red lights for about a minute or so before it powers back down. The Sony TV has a specific light that i presume is supposed to light up when the bulb is out. I'm unsure if this is what it is. no picture, no sound. tries to boot with green light blinking a few times. then goes to red blinking light, six in all, then waits a few moments, then another 6 blinking red light.
Bulb was already replaced several months ago but we do have the TV on for long periods of time.
Refer to owners manual ! Blinking indicates the type of fault that is occuring on all your tv sets. example : power light on red - indicator light beside it green but blinks rapidly for half a second rapidly then shuts off. This refers to a faulty lamp or a lamp that is near its expiration. Read your manuals if indicators refer to easy repair sweet, but if it says call tech then bummer...
RED light is protect circuit = do not disable !
Look for C702 near flyback transformer - might be hidden in
glue = check it = if shorted, replace 102K / 2KV with 3KV =
Sony part # 1-161-754-00 and replace E994 pico fuse.....T.
This isn't gonna help you, but I have the same problem on my 62HM15A, think we have about the same tv, widescreen DLP,?
My TV does the same thing powers with a blining lite then powers off. First it powered on with sound no pic, then would shut down and power up again with pic and sound , now i gots a nothing just powering on and off until i shut the thing off manually.
thanks, just posted here in case some answers bipea's question and it relates to mine.
