A service technician arrived at my home this morning and infromed me that 13 blinks indicates a bad LCD panel. His quote to repair it was approximately $500 more than the TV initially cost. I contacted Sony support directly, and they have agreed to replace the TV, since it is less than 30 days out of warranty. The KDL40V3000 has apparently been dicontinued so they are replacing with a KDL40V4100(factory reconditioned). I know this won't necessarily help others with the same problem, but if your warranty ended recently enough they will probably work with you to mitigate the expense.

This television is having a problem with component failure. The reason you can tell this is you do see the video information on the screen before the unit goes into the protection mode.The protection mode protects the circuits from doing more damage to themselves.Seeing the the video shows that the television is still functioning. The television needs to be tested and serviced at a service center. The service center will have all the service information to analyze the problem and do the repairs.I hope this information will help you with your problem.

The problem is associated with the power supply that cannot run under load. The showing of picture for a brief period of time indicates that the main board, ballast, inverter and panel drive are all OK. The unit turns on but the power supply cannot sustain the power requirement of the unit and shuts down.
The usual culprit on the power supply are blown or bad capacitors. Check the power supply for such capacitors. If no apparent damage or defect is found, replace the power supply.
