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.

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!

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.
