Replace bulb and heave all cooling vents cleaned of dust. Bulbs on rear projection sets are more like street lights than regular home light bulbs. They dont just burn out they start in and out and maybe fading before they die.

Chevy Cavalier 2001 turn signal blinks fast

If new bulbs don't work, it is probably the harness that holds the bulb. I had to replace both on my car after fighting with the problem for over a year and not knowing.

I have owned a Sony rear projection TV for a little over two years. Model KP-51HW40. I have two problems. The first problem has been going on for about one year. Most of the time when, it is first turned...

Problem # 2 is a convergence issue. If you can solder, you can repair this yourself. As far as problem #1 goes, count the blinks. The set goes into standby as protection from further damage when a problem is detected. The blink count is an internal diagnostic that indicates the circuit in which the problem was detected. Report back here with the blink count if you can.
I'll look up the convergence IC numbers in the mean time.
