Re: no power

What's happening is that the Tv is cycling. The shutdown circuit is finding a problem whereby the voltages are too high causing the circuit to activate the shudown. the minute the voltages drop within range the micro reinstates the relay trying to power the unit back up..
Your set - with the exception of the micro circuit design is the same as a Hitachi 53UDX10B. It could be something as simple as a couple of caps failing to a component failure. Only way to tell for certain is to trace test the varoius voltages from the regulator forward through their various stages..
My advice is find a good reputable shop and try and take the unit to them for testing and repair. By taking it to them you'll save the pickup and delivery which in some cases could be a hundred dollars.. But from what you're describing it doesn't sound too serious and the Tv is doing what it was designed to do - shut it down to prevent a major problem.
Good Luck

Sony rear proj tv, no picture, menu appears, but in three seperated colors pin cushioned.

Best to first if you have not done so---UNPLUG the set for several minutes and plug back to power to see if that fixes it (it does a lot of the time especially if you had a power outage).

My TV does not power up when the power button is pressed.

It's sounds like your lamp or backlight has went out, I suggest reading your manual for service info and look online for a local repair shop.

A 1995 60 inch rca good picture and sound. Then it started a cracking noise and a hissing sound, then the picture went blurry. then it was nice picture and sound, then it died. took the back off and turned out the lights. Plugged the tv in and out from the wall socket and there was a sparking noise and a small arc when i plugged it in and out a few times ,at the part that the power plug plugs into.The white part that is beside the white power plug part has thick red wire coming out of it and goes into another plug that has more red wires in it. but the big white part beside the power plug part looks burnt and has black powder on it. that part is probably the problem but maybe not, what it the name of that part and how much would it cost and is it plugged in or soldered.

TV Picture Goes Black

I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions

Power light flashing/ no picture

I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.

Possible problems: * The TV set may be unplugged. * A fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or switched off. * The remote control unit (RCU) may be disabled. Solutions: * Make sure the TV/VCR are plugged in and the wall switch is on. * Check the fuse or circuit breaker. Test the outlet with a lamp. * Replace the RCU's batteries: if this fails exchange the unit.
