Sony 57 inch WEGA Projection TV

A few days ago attempting to turn on the TV, got the blinking Standby light no picture. Turning on and off a fewtimes Sound and Picture came on. Yesterday, took me 4-5 times to acheive the same result. This morning after numerous cycling on and off would get sound for a few seconds with a blinking Standby light and no picture. After a few seconds each time sound goes off and Standby light blinks. Any idea?

Hi, this is a very common failure, you need to replace 2 IC chips on your power supply board, marked on the top of the IC`s is this number: MCZ3001D you can purchase them here if you are very proficient at soldering & un-soldering, and the board has to come out of the tv to do this, you might want to call a tv man for this one, but it will fix your set, happy holidays, BMW Rider

Sony LCD Projection TV turning!!!

Look carefully at the front lights. Usually when these sets shutdown they have a blink code on either the standby light or the lamp light. Update this with those counts. In the meantime, you may be seeing a problem with heat. If the lamp area gets too hot, the set will shutdown the lamp. Once the area is cool again, the lamp will fire.

Update this and we'll hopefully fix the both of them.
