When I turn the tv on it came on for a minute then started flashing on and off then went blank but the power light keep flashing off and on with a blank screen.


This problem is easy to repair. If when you turned the tv on and it had sound and picture for a second or two, and the power went off and the power green light keeps flashing on and off, it is a bad CCFL backlight lamp inside the LCD panel which has 10 of these lamps in it, but only one is bad. Replace the lamp and the tv will power on. What the tv is doing is, it has stored a lamp error code on the main board and turning the power off. The replacement lamp is part # RLMPLA029WJN1 and you can buy them at www.encompassparts.com for $19.49 ea. Go to their web sight and sign in as guess to order. I can give you step to step instruction on how to check how many lamps you will have to order if you need me, too. You will have to take the tv apart to check them.

KP57WV600 SCREEN TURNS GREEN THEN BLANK


The self-diagnostic function of the projection TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue. As per the two examples below, some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
  • If the STANDBY light flashes three times in sequence, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
  • If the STANDBY light flashes four times in sequence, the TV may be overheating. To resolve this issue, ensure that the back of the TV is well ventilated.
If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection TV that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the TV to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the TV power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the TV remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the TV is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the TV.
  5. Turn on the television. NOTE: If the TV does not turn on immediately, the fan may need to finish its cycle. This is part of the cooling process for some projection TVs and is normal operation. After the fan turns off, attempt to turn the TV on again.
If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required . Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.

Sounds like the DLP lamp failed. You can decipher the Hitachi flashing red light. That should help to be sure.

Those lights flashing mean the lamp is the issue. You need to test it with a meter. If the lamp tests ok then it may be the ballast is bad and that is what powers the lamp.

Sony KDF-46E2000 - Screen Goes Blank


You definitely have a bad lamp. Sony rates the lamp life at between 4000 and 8000 hours. There are 3 things that effect the lamp life, listed in order of importance:
1) number of times the lamp is turned on and off. Every time the lamp is first fired, it takes life off the lamp. Customers I see that turn the TV on in the morning, leave it on all day and then turn it off on the evening can get up to 12000 lamp hours
2) ventilation. Be sure you have at least 6 inches of open space all the way around the set and that the vents are clear of dust and debris.
3) power. If the power is interrupted when the set is on, there cannot be a proper cool down cycle. The fans will run after you turn the set off to properly cool it down, if the power is lost this cannot happen. If your power is unreliable, buy a small UPS to let the set finish a cool down cycle

Occasionally a lamp will faill before the average lamp time due to being defective. from your purchase date it sounds like you got about average lamp time. Be sure to purchase AN ORIGINAL SONY LAMP as a replacement, becuase the aftermarket lamps are bad news, Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!
