Good Day;
From what you stated it sounds like you may have a bad, shorted, CRT, picture tube. Call a factorized service center for your Sony. This kind of an expensive repair, around $800.00 in parts of the country.
Call the factory and ask them for a CONCESSION for your repair. You can try , all they can is no, but don't take there first no.
Good luck, day,Big Irish.
PS; I thought my wife was latingirl1, well at least she is to me. thanks.

This isn't an easy fix, it sounds like your power supply board is bad or there is a main board problem. I'd suspect a faulty power supply capacitor or heatsink missing, but you have to bring it in to a tech to know for sure.

hi if your tv is a rear projection , and when you switch the tv on you say the green light comes on and then goes off , watch the light it should flash , you need to count the flashes the number of flashes give s a code if it flashes about 6 times i think it is , then this means the bulb has gone which is very common ,this is why the tv doesnt turn on . Now if this is the case the bulbs (are you sitting down ) sell for around £250 but if you look on ebay they sell for around £70 i hope this helps .

Tv cuts off and green light flashes


If your set was manufactured around July 2005, you may need a firmware upgrade to solve this issue. On the Sony website you can enter your model # and serial # to see if you TV is affected. If so, it is easy to have done and may be free from Sony. It sounds like the issue they described in the writeup on the required formware update. I had mine done within few months of when i bought it (purchased in Dec 2005) and it has been working flawlessly since.

Good luck!

Tv cuts off and green light flashes


Yup, it seems a lamp problem can give a blinking green light over the 10 times (1 - 10 times for diagnostic codes), but in my case rather than replace the bulb if it works for a minute then resets with the green light blinking, do what I did.
Take the lamp out and inspect it, it has breather screens top and bottom, if it cant breath because there clogged with dust, clean them, and you can remove the screens, use q-tips and clean the inside. I saved the cost of a lamp and it's working fine!

hey i have had the same problem but i unplugged the tv for awhile about a half hour and then plug your tv into a different wall outlet if you can and should work. It worked for me, i had it plugged into a surge protector then i unplugged it from there, let it sit of half hour then plugged into different wall outlet and worked. so try that and see if it works.
