Keeps shutting down and takes several trys to start again only to shut down later

If the computer is overheating it will shut down to save the hardware from heat damage, the temp is pre set. It may get hot, due to air flow in a minute or and hour. What does the "screen comes up says problem " say? Check the fan and vents for dust and clean, improve air flow around bottom vents and side vents. Perhaps a Laptop Cooler? When the computer shuts down unepectedly, the computer see it as a crash and will load in that option screen. Run a 'Check Disk" on the OS drive buy opening computer in start menu, right click the drive with the OS (C), open properties, Tools, Check now, choose all options, follow instructions, reboot.

My Optoma HD 72 flashes green like others have descibed, but if I run it in High Altitude mode it corercts the problem, although it it very noisey. Any ideas to what is causing this issue and how to fix...

sounds like the air flow is restricted and overheats using the regular fan speed.
check for air flow blockages inside and outside, filter problems, etc

I have a Sony SXRD KDS-R50XBR1 and the tv keeps shutting off and turning back on. While its off the green power light flashes. I just had the lamp replaced and the optical block replaced a few months...

Green light flashing is normal as the lamp warms up before turning on.
If it runs for a bit before turning off it's likely to be overheating somewhere.
Looks to be more than one fan in this so possibly dust in one of the others but there should be a "High Temperature Warning!" message if it's overheating. This set has a "high altitude mode" for extra cooling.
If it turns on and then turns off again instantly it might be something has failed.
There is quite a detailed service manual if you want to have a look for possible clues:

The lamp may be starting to go, the symptoms you describe are classic warning signs. You could unplug tv let it cool down and check lamp most likely the glass will not look clear maybe a little milky or smoky in areas..dead give away.

Optoma EP739 Projector Overheating

Set the projector to "high altitude mode." It will be noisier, but won't overheat. I wonder whether using one of those $10-$20 laptop coolers underneath it might be a quieter solution.
