Hi,it sounds like its time to replace the lamp,especially if tv is between 2-3 yrs .Any clicking noises? if you do it could be an issue with the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast.Your lamp is made by Philips and it last 6000-8000 hrs ,make sure you get the original, generics dont provide same quality and life time is way shorter 4000 hrs 6 mths - 1 yr.Have a blessed life!

Testimonial: "it makes the clicking noise when you plug the set in to the wall.there is no pic or sound and the standby light is red. and the standby light stays on"

    If you have not replaced lamp, that clicking sound you hear is the ballast trying to power the lamp.First replace the lamp and if doesn't solve your problem the next thing will be the ballast,that part cost around $40-$50 and you can replace it your self. Here's instructions:http://guides.fixyourdlp.com/samsung/bp4... But everything points out to the lamp ,since you hear trying to power on and get the lamp indicator .God bless!

I have a 55" sony


According to the manual (you can see it here) page 122 that describes 3 red flashing lights:

"The lamp cover is not attached securely. When you secure the lamp cover, the POWER / STANDBY light flashes in red and the LCD projection TV enters the standby mode (see page22)"

Page 22 says:

"... if the POWER / STANDBY light flashes continuously, this may indicate the display unit needs servicing..."


Most DLP displays make use of a "color wheel". These small motors spin at many thousands of RPM. They often begin to make scratching sounds when they are beginning to fail. Some manufacturers make it difficult to change yourself - and others make it pretty easy.

I hope this was at least a good starting point for you & good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

When I turn the TV on, I get no picture and no sound. The red Standby light flashes repeatedly.


This sounds like a bad controller baord or the Projection lamp is gone have you tried to replace the light? if there is no light then the color guns are bad.

Turns on for 30 sec then goes bright blue and goes back into standby. turn back on it does it agian


This is blue CRT problem in tv as it is rear projection tv that has three CRTs red-green-blue inside to project color picture on front screen.
Blue CRT (tube) will be replaced to fix the issue and it is job of Pro because lots of adjustments are required after replacement of tube.
Local tv repair shop will help you for that.
Thanks

Tv wont power up Standby light keeps flashing.


First step in any Sony LCD projector repair is bulb or lamp replacement. Fixes 95% of problems.

Taking apart and trying to measure things without a known good bulb is a waste of time and effort.
