Sony Flat screen tv troubles

WHile watching my tv all of a sudden the tv screen went blank and the standby/power light started flashing. I have tried to turn it back on but the green light continues to flash for quite a while then turns red and never comes on. Is there an explanation for this? I had pulled the plug and let it sit overnight but it still will not work.

    I bought this TV in 2006.. tv started to turn green, one of the fans stopped working (which I fixed myself) and now the TV shut off and standby light blinks 100x and then the red lamp light blinks.
    Called Sony tech support- no advice except to unplug TV and wait for over a minute and plug it back in to hope it resets the TV.
    Anyone have new advice on this?

My only advice is for you to get a service manual. The link I am inclosing has your manual for 10.99 and they provide unlimited free support. If you contact them and request that they email it to you, they will. Thats about your only recourse unless you have a tech come in cause of the complexity of your set. You will need a service manual. Heres the link.

When turning on tv. screen will display Bravia image & then go blank. red light flashes SIX times

Power off the television. Wait a few minutes, then power it back on. If this does not correct the issue leave the power on, point your remote control towards the Sony television and hold the down arrow button. While holding the down arrow button press the "Power" button. Release the down arrow button and the Sony TVicon1.png will reset itself to factory settings. Once the television performs a scan on itself your problem should be gone.
