Re: Power light wont turn on, it started one time then...

If the green light never comes on. that is is if you unplug the set and wait 30 min before plugging back up. and then the green light never comes have a power issue. the processor never receives power. if it comes on then goes out you have a shutdown issue. the processor detects a condition which it need to shut down the set due to a saftey issue. The processor generates a error log. which can be read by a technician and a computer. it can be one of about 30 different problems. so it would be best to troubleshoot this further.

Tv wont turn on

Green light of death, capacitors have to be replaced but it probably wont fix it anyways. Once this happens the TV is completely useless.

The power went out tonight and now the TV wont turn on. When the power went out the TV was off. I have tried reseting the TV several time to no avail. The green timer light just keeps flashing. Any ideas...

Either the capacitors are shot or the high-voltage transformer aka power supply is shot. You can test power from transformer to main board with a voltmeter. you can test the resistance/continuity of any capacitor with a mulit-meter in the ohm position.

Sony Projection TV 60 XBR, wont turn on, blinking green light

This sounds like when the power came back on a surge went into your tv and burnt out the TVs main power supply or possibly burn out the flyback power converter on the TV main board!
(I am pretty sure it is either one of these things!)

Sony KDF-46E2000 - Screen Goes Blank

You definitely have a bad lamp. Sony rates the lamp life at between 4000 and 8000 hours. There are 3 things that effect the lamp life, listed in order of importance:
1) number of times the lamp is turned on and off. Every time the lamp is first fired, it takes life off the lamp. Customers I see that turn the TV on in the morning, leave it on all day and then turn it off on the evening can get up to 12000 lamp hours
2) ventilation. Be sure you have at least 6 inches of open space all the way around the set and that the vents are clear of dust and debris.
3) power. If the power is interrupted when the set is on, there cannot be a proper cool down cycle. The fans will run after you turn the set off to properly cool it down, if the power is lost this cannot happen. If your power is unreliable, buy a small UPS to let the set finish a cool down cycle

Occasionally a lamp will faill before the average lamp time due to being defective. from your purchase date it sounds like you got about average lamp time. Be sure to purchase AN ORIGINAL SONY LAMP as a replacement, becuase the aftermarket lamps are bad news, Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

Comment by msamshelton, posted on Aug 31, 2008Red and blue color on the tv don't line up. Can the remote line them up? And if not permanently, how much does it usually cost to have repaired.

Tv wont turn on

The fact that your unit first got blurry means trouble in the High Voltage section. It sounds like it went down hill from there and now probably has a shorted Horizontal Output Transistor and a possible shorted flyback. If you are not experienced with TV repair you will have to enlist a reputable repair shop. The charge for repair should be less than $150.00. Good luck.
