yes ... you could have a color wheel problem.. this set get color from a spinning wheel called a color wheel.. when you unplug this and plug this back in you should hear a whining motor sound. During the "bootup" sequence this motor spins this wheel to test to see if it reaches speed. This is a motor that moves and anything that moves eventally dos not. i see this problem often in the shop and if it is the problem there not all that difficult repair. the hardest part is finding the color wheel
Thats the Power Supply. You need to call a service man, please disconnect this unit from the Power, It is dangerous to leave it plugged in. what is happening is the set has developed a serious fault, to avoid a fire or explosion, the PSU has shut down the set. that noise you hear is the power supply struggling against the fault. trying to start. Please for safeties sake, get a "Quote" from a reputable, preferably an RCA recommended service centre.
You probably have a bad BLUE CRT. Due to the cost and the length of time it would take to repair, I would not invest the money into it. It would require a Qualified Service Person to come to your home and remove the BLUE CRT assembly and send it back to SONY to be rebuilt. Estimated cost would be around 800.00. I would check prices of a replacement set.
I hope this helps,
I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.
the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.
