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.

TV turns itself off, then on automaticlly


The fan should run for a few minutes after shut off to cool the lamp down.

If I read and understand correctly somewhere in the cycle you are getting 5 red blinks? that is an error code........

Either you or I can Google the model number of the set with 5 blinks.....or visit the Sony site to see what it means.....

When you hit the power button on the tv it will click, turn green for a second and then turn off. you never see a picture on the tv itself, and it does this constently. how do i get the tv to turn on and...


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


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!

Samsung HLR5067 flashing green


Thank you!!!! Our power was off due to new transformers being installed in the area and we had no clue how to fix this. I called around and no one seemed to know the answer (not even Samsung, who only wanted to tell me my TWO year old tv was out of warranty),so I tried this and it worked perfectly!!! You saved me a bundle! Thanks!
