This is a projection style TV with a removable light box which makes it easier to service. You could have a defective flyback (high voltage) transformer, or a leaky zener diode in the voltage regulation circuits as well. Depending on how old the set is and how the picture quality was before going out, will dictate the feasability of getting it repaired. My guess would be over $300 and possibly close to $500 if the flyback needs replacing.

Does the projection lamp turn on, look in the back it should be visible. If not I would replace this and maybe the ballast first. If this still doesnt resolve the issue then the whole Optical engine might need replacement.

When I turn on the TV the green light goes green to red to green to red. If I keep turning it on and off eventually I get a picture. The picture is very dark at first

Sounds like back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.

To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced.

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.

No Picture & No sound. Red LED, Green LED, Red LED.

If the power supply outputs are good! Then I would say the back light inverter is bad! If the screen stays black and does not come on.

No picture or sound

Remove the rear panel. With the TV on you should see a red LED near the center of the PCB. There should also be 5 green leds, 3 to the left a 2 behind. If there is no red leds, check the fuses. If there are no green leds or maybe 1 or 2, disconect PSD5. It's a connector on the left side of the power board that connects to the audio board. It's the 3rd on fro the back. It's labled. With that disconected, turn on the set and look for the green leds. If all 5 light, the power supply is OK and you have a problem beyond that. If they don't all light you have a bad power supply.

D52W19 No pix, sound good - now green light blinks, no come on

First of all you need to find out which CRT leaked and replace it before any other repairs are done. The clear liquid is conductive and has done damage to the CRT board or boards.
