    my rear screen is the Sony 55" version but same problem. Comes on, goes dark green light flashes for about 30-60 seconds, TV comes back on. Intervals between blackouts is shortening to point where TV is unwatchable. Unit is about three years old.

    I have the same problem. I have no clue whats wrong and whether its the lamp or not. Basically, I turn the TV on, the green light flashes about 5-6 times, the picture comes on and then after about 2 minutes, the TV turns off again with the green light flashing and comes back on by itself. Very frustrating and what makes it worse is my 3 year best buy warranty just ran out 2 months ago.

    If anyone has any ideas please help.

It turns out, as indicated by the previous solutions, that the problem was with the lamp. Had the lamp replaced (cost $100) and everything works fine now.

My 50" Grand Wega was just over a year old when it started shutting off unexpectedly... the screen would turn black, the green power light would flash for 15 seconds or so then the lamp would turn back on.. perfect picture for two minutes and the cycle would repeat itself... very frustrating!

The solution was to replace the lamp!

Its the lamp that needs replacing. It will run for a couple of seconds and then it would dim or turn off.

There is a protection switch on the inside where the replacement bulb slides out, check to see if it is either tripped or not making connection, If that doesn't fix your problem, check and make sure that there is absolutely nothing on the bulb and/or the glass shield, also visually inspect the bulb for bulges or defects, if found replace the lamp or entire color engine.

Turning off by itself


This TV probably needs the convergence amp IC's replaced. When they go bad the TV will not turn on.Call a good TV Tech and tell him you want the IC's upgraded to STK 392-150 instead of the original STK 392-120 and check all resistors in the circuit for proper value. They could be burned or open.

TV shuts itself off after a couple minutes of being on.


One must be very careful of the quality of the replacement lamp. Many of the cheap 'deals' on the web for replacement lamps are substandard. I always recommend that replacement bulbs be the original manufacturers bulb.

Pioneer SD-P6091 Projection TV - TV turns off by itself


I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps
