Re: Green light flashes and than goes off for 30 seconds.
If your TV is a Mitsubishi, there is no count actually. You are the victim of the famous "green flashing light" problem. This is resolved by replacing a number of bad capacitors on the "D" board I believe. If you can solder, you may be able to resolve this. Be aware however that some of these caps may be surface mounted which is a more intricate task.
Let me know if you wish to attempt this and I'll provide more details.

the green is the reboot process and is normal. the red light is an error code indicator. count the blinks of the red light...it cant be 30 times (I think) it will blink a sequence, pause, then do it again for a total of three times. count carefully, it gives you three chances to catch the number it is blinking.
You tv used lamp XL-2400 or also known as F93087500. It is very common for this bulb to fail and have the exact symptom you are experiencing. I cant count how many times I have seen it.. Replace the lamp with either the exact Sony or an OEM and you will be back in business..
The green light flashing is an error code. Count the number of flashes and it will tell the issue. Write back once you've counted the flashes. Also, was the TV having any issues before this? Was there a recent storm or power surge?
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 .
I have a similar problem. Just found out a possible solution yesterday. I am waiting for my lamp but here's what you need to do if you have replaced your lamp. Go into self diagnostics mode: Switch of your TV via remote, you will see red standy by light. Now,on the remote press "Display"=>"Channel 5"=>"Volume Up"=>"Power Button". All these keys need to be pressed within 3 seconds. You will now enter the diagnostics mode. Press "Jump" on remote (bottom right) 3 times and then press "Channel 2" 9 times. The screen will display your current lamp hours used.
In order to reset your tv to factory settings and for the new bulb to work you must reset this timer or else your TV will assume you are still using the old bulb and will automatically kick in "over protection mode". So here's what you do once you do on the lamp hours display screen. Press the "Channel 3" button on the remote 3 times then "Mute" then "Press Enter" to reset the timer to zero. Your TV should now work as normal. And remember, whenever a part is replaced all factory settings must be reset to zero. To do this, follow "Display"=>"Channel 5"=>"Volume Up"=> "Power Up" to enter service mode. Finally, press "Channel 8" and then "Enter" to put the TV back to factory settings.
The above mentioned is usually performed by a service technician and they charge somewhere around $95 diagnostic fee. You just saved this charge. If you see flashing red lights count them when they flash in sequence. This is a code for the techs to tell them what is wrong. These flashing red lights sequentially flash from 0 to 10 times to identify a problem. Usually, when the bbulb goes bad the only thing that might need to be replaced would be a "lamp Driver" aka "Power Block Assembly" $116.25 online from Sony, or the ballast. Sometimes, if you do not have a video a Thermal FUse can go bad which only costs $4.80 for the KDF60-XS955 but the techs will charge you over $300. You can do this yourself if you can get your hands on a service manual.
I have a KDF60XS955. When I power it on, the fan comes on, the standby light flashes green several times, the lamp comes on and the standby light goes to solid green. This lasts for less than 5 seconds then the lamp goes out, followed by ~30 green standby flashes, the lamp coming on with the solid green standby light for about 5 seconds then shuts off the lamp again. I can hear/feel the fan running the enitre time. This cycle continues endlessly. Please help!
