    I have one question. Why is lamp the reason for my problem? I thought by reading the manual, lamp only need replacement when the picture becomes dark.?

    Anyway, I will go ahead and read the manual and see if I can do it yourself replace the lamp. When i am ready I'll buy the lamp.

    One more info I read in the Manual when the lamp needs replacing. It says the lamp needs to be replaced when the indicator on the fornt panel blinks in red. My problem, the indicator on the front panel doesn't blink in red, but blinks green.

    Thank you. I'll go ahead and replace the lamp.

    Yes, its good question and I will happily answer it.
    Manual discuss dead/ broken lamp and tv will show lamp light on front but weaker lamp that is still not dead nor broken will act as you seen it in tv.
    Replacement of lamp will solve your tv problem, I been replaced many for said problem because I'm Sony qualified tv tech :)

    As I mentioned before, broken or dead lamp can blink lamp light on tv front.
    Your tv is just fine and has no other problem except weak lamp.

Flashing green light

Did you try this yet

If the TV will not respond to either the remote control
or the front panel controls and/or will not power Off,
press the SYSTEM RESET button with a pointed item
like the end point of a paperclip. The TV will turn Off
and the TIMER light will flash quickly for about one
minute. When the TIMER light stops flashing, you may
turn on the TV again. Changes you made the last time
the TV was On before you used the SYSTEM RESET
button may be lost, however, the changes you made
previously are not lost.
The green light is a multi-function indicator. This light
will flash rapidly for about one minute each time the TV
is plugged into the wall electrical outlet, when power
is restored after a power failure, or using the SYSTEM
RESET button. Do not attempt to turn on the TV again
during this period. Wait for the flashing to stop and
the light to turn off, before attempting to turn the TV
on. While the TV is powered on, the light illuminates
steadily. If the TV has been programmed to turn on
automatically using the Timer feature,

Sony FWD50PX2/S 50 in. Plasma Television power problem

It does sound like a power supply problem but that can be misleading because a problem somewhere else in the TV can be "holding down" the power supply. This can usually be determined by using some isolation techniques.

TV Picture Goes Black

I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
