Hey bbendure, I have a similar/same same problem! My model is a GV42L.
It has a blue screen that says no signal t, then it turns itself off in about 20 seconds.
Is this the same problem you see?

I have a 2000 Sony projection tv. When I turn it on it has a blue screen then it shuts off in around 5 seconds. The light on front keeps flashing 8 times in a row. Any ideas?


8 blinks Driver SOS 3 SS Board (SS energy recovery circuit)

Consistently finding that as an answer. I would assume that is the part that is broken. The 8 blinks is an error code which points to this part being faulty.

It does not have any input connected. Without any input, the TV switches off.

The play station turns on but the menu is not coming up. The wave line is on the screen of the TV


Same problem just happened to me. Playing a game and the game froze. Sat there in shock for about 10 to 15 seconds and the screen went black. Shut it off. Now every time I go to turn it back on again it starts up, I get the PS3 logo and then the blue wave starts. About 5 seconds after that the wave starts to lag and then nothing.... Stays on the lagging blue wave screen... THIS BLOWS!!!!!!!!!!!

Tv turns on. A blue screen appears. Then it shuts down in 20 seconds. The timer light blinks repetedly.


Try this:
1) turn on TV
2) from the remote control ..press MENU 2,4,7,0 then ENTER
3) tv will state on screen that it is INITIALIZING.
4) press the RESET BUTTON on front of TV.
5) should be good to go!

TV SCREEN IS JUST A BLUE PICTURE,BUT HAS SOUND


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand it would appear that the VCR section of the combo unit would require a bit of cleaning. Specifically, head cleaning. The easiest approach is to use a VHS tape head cleaner.

The other post of "tv turns on then 5 seconds later shuts off" would be the auto-protect kicking in. This indicates that a likely hardware fault exists. Try to initially reset the unit by unplugging from the mains for an extended period. Otherwise it would require opening the unit for voltage measurement/diagnosis.

Pls post back updates. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Red lamp light stays light


I doubt that it is the optical assy. it sounds more like a chassis problem either on the DM or the FMT board.

check out www.tv-techs.com
if it is a chassis problem it will cost about $250.00 plus shipping one way to fix the chassis

Error Code 5 flashes when unit shuts down


Good Day;
It sounds like the TV may have a shorted CRT, picture tube, but let's trouble shoot:
1. Unplug TV from wall.
2. Remove speaker grill, two on bottom, the screws are covered with plastic caps, right and left side on bottom next to floor.
3. Remove inner panel.
4. The blue tube is the one the right side, remove socket, with phillips driver, make sure it's not touching anything.
5. Plug and turn TV back on, if picture appears with no blue it's the tube.
6. If still shuts down, bad blue CRT driver IC.
CAUTION: Call a factory authorized service dealer to give you an estimate, if this sounds too hard.
Good Luck, Day, Big Irish.
