    App 3 days ago I started having the same problem. Exactly 45 flashes as you say. My TV was needing the upgrade. I had that done but the problem still exists.

    Same problem here. Turns itself off then on, over and over again. So far I've found no cause or resolution. I'm about to pitch this piece of junk out in the street.

    I have the same problem - mine doesn't need the update either. Just started today. I went through the live chat support and after I reset it from the wall I was told to call service.

    Our tv also does this. It also has a blue streak in the upper right hand corner. We bought it May 24, 2006. We purchased an extended warranty so I wonder if it will cover this problem.

  • oski65 May 28, 2008

    TV won't go on. Just see a black screen. The green power light will blink for a minute or two and then turn to red and continue blinking. Tried unplugging for 5 minutes to reset without success.

    I had the exact same problem with the exact same tv. My tv was about 18 months old, but on all of the time. I had a tech scheduled to look at and stumbled on a website with a bunch of tv repair men answering questions. they suggested my lamp was on its last leg. I replaced the lamp and have not had a problem since with the tv turning on and off by itself. Unfortunately, I now have a large blue blob taking over my screen and sony is acting like they never heard of the problem before. Sony blows!

    I try to turn my tv on and it doesn't come on. It just cycles the green power light then to red then it shuts off. The Tv was manufactured in December of 2005.

    My sony KDF-E50A10 is approximately 3 years old. I have already replaced the bulb once (after the 1st year and the warranty ran out) on this tv and it seemed to work fine. Now almost 2 years later, the tv is now turning off and then turning back on approximately 30 seconds later. The green light flashes on the tv the entire 30 seconds. The problem that I had with my tv before was that I was getting horizontal line and then it never came back on. Is the tv turning off and on by itself also the lamp? Someone please help.

I had the same problem, it would take the tech two weeks to get to me. So here is what i did, and the problem seams to be fixed. I took out the lamp and dusted the lamp area. There was alot of dust. I then replaced the lamp. I have not had a problem since.

    Having the same issue. Tried taking out the lamp and dusting, cleaned everything I could reach with compressed air. Put it back as it was and it still works for @ a minute, then standby light blinks for almost a minute then it turns back on and repeats this process. Any advice?

The tv will turn on but no the screen wont. and


Replace the lamp would be the first thing to try. Lamp door switch on this model is notorious for going bad. If you replace lamp and still won't turn on jumper door switch. If you take off back you can see switch board.

Why does my sony vega keep turning it self off and back on again


Im guessing it is doiong this about every 30 seconds or so. Im also guessing that when the sound and picture go out, the green standby light flashes until the set comes back on. If this is the case, mine was doing the same thing. I did a bunch of research. I replaced the lamp and the tv is like new, no more problems. The lamp light on the front of the set does not come on because the lamp/bulb is noot burned out all the way. I bought my lamp from www.vanns.com , the best price I found.

Sony KDF-E50A10 stays on for 15-20 minutes then shuts off power standby light flashes green and turns back on. Replaced bulb about 6 months ago with sony bulb. Any ideas. Thanks


The reason this happens the most is because of the lamp being weak. I have not seen anything else cause this problem. You can varify this by turning the set off and wait until it shuts down totally.
with the Sony remote, press the display button, the #5 button,
volume down button, then power button. This puts you into the the factory error code mode. If you see the lamp code with multiple errors and no other errors shown, the lamp is the problem.
Most of Sonys lamps have a aprox life of 3000 hrs. Some last longer and some shorter.
I hope this helps,

Hi, Lamp of TV getting weaker and requires replacement. This shut off by itself will increase day by day until you put new lamp in TV. Always Buy Sony original lamp and avoid aftermarket/ cheap lamp for TV safety.

TV turn on and off


Your TV has a power problem, it maybe high or low supply voltage that causes the TV to turn it self off because of an error. A technician from the manufacturer knows what error it has just by looking at the flashing standby light. Best is to take it to an authorize service center for repair... ^_^
