I was having this same problem with this same model. I would turn it on, the green light would blink a few times, then it would go into standby. After repeating this 10-15 times it would finally turn on. I called customer service and they said to try resetting the TV by unplugging it for 30 minutes. If that didn't work, they said to call a service center to see if they could figure it out.
Well I unplugged it for 30 minutes, plugged it in, turned it on and Whalla! It works! I am so glad it wasn't something else.
Since the set recovers under some conditions, I would first look for poor solder connections. With a set of your vintage, it is common for some of the connections to become faulty. If you can solder, resolder any connections on the board that appear grainy or have rings. Please note that there are potentially dangerous high voltages present inside the set even when unplugged.
Although my tv still does the "turn green and turn off" thing, I simply unplugged and repluggd the tv. After I did that, I pushed the "ON" button on the tv itself, unplugging and replugging the tv until it finally came on. I think the "instant warm-up" switch is going out.
IFyou feel confident and can locate switch mode power supply with back removed.
Try warming switchmode power supply before turning TV on.
If TV turns on normaly then there are some small capcitors that are a common cause of this fault.
Otherwise look for DRY or CRACKED solder jointson PCB
BUT DON'T do any of the above if your are not confident send it to a TV repaiman.
Since remote does not work, try taking out batt and turning on by set. See if still turns up. It could be that the up button is jammed inside set. Does everything else works? See if you can go to menu and turn speakers off, this will allow you to work on set and not worry about noise.
