    I am having the same problem. The TV is only 1 year and 2 weeks old. Just past the warranty period. After contacting Sony they said to take it to a local service center and have them check it out. To see it looks like the bulb because it dims up and down right before going out for a minute and then back on again.

    cgm58 did the bulb replacement fix your problem?

    After TV powers ups and green power light stops flashing, within 2 minutes I loose the picture and then the sound and then the green pwr lights starts to flash. Then the light goes solid and picture comes in again. This repeats itself every 2-3 minutes.

I would suspect the lamp first. First unplug the set for 2 minutes and then try it again. Then the second step if that doesn't resolve any issues then replace the lamp. As the lamp ages it gets to be less efficent and will cause symptoms as you described. good luck.

Try to start sony kdf-50e2000 tv and wil not start and red light keeps flashing. what does this mean?

You will have to replace the lamp which goes every 3-4 yrs depending how often used (Sony XL-2400 DLP replacement lamp).Your instruction booklet will explain this page 76. As further info I would also make sure the lamp comes with the cover which Amazon has it for a total price of around $130.

Sony KDF-50E2000 shuts down and blinks repeatedly twice.

The 2 blink error is a temperature error and the 6 blink error is a thermal fuse error. You may need to unplug the set and get you a can of canned air, take off the back lower cover and blow out all of the fans inside the set.
