My Sony LCD Rear Projection TV takes way too long to come on. Could this be the bulb going bad ? It's only 6 months old. When I turn on the TV , a green light flashes (normal usually for just about 30 seconds). This flashing continues for sometimes 5 minutes...then the pictures finally comes on.

Hi, I'm afraid, it is problem of optical block unit (light engine) that produce picture by 3 lcds inbuilt, the blue lcd and its related uv filters become defective and causing this kind of blue hue on screen. Complete optical unit block (light engine) will be replaced by qualified tech to get tv fixed, light engine is costly part so ask an estimate before sending tv in. Thanks.
yes replace the lamp, sony units have certain specs that the lamp must meet to operate correctly. If the Lamp you purchased is made by LTI, these lamps do not last long as they are poorly manufactured. Look at the bulb and see who is the maker if its says LTI then replace with a Phillips brand that meets spec's for sony.
Hi,it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.This is how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo So basically the 3 Lcd chips that create the colors and image are going bad and that is why you get that color discoloration.Contact Sony or look for your light engine online.God bless you and your house!
well if you replace the lamp 2 months ago this could be a ballast issue go to your back of the TV and if you ear a weird mechanical noises like a tick,tick when you are down there this is the ballast.
I get 5 blinking red lights for about a minute or so before it powers back down. The Sony TV has a specific light that i presume is supposed to light up when the bulb is out. I'm unsure if this is what it is. no picture, no sound. tries to boot with green light blinking a few times. then goes to red blinking light, six in all, then waits a few moments, then another 6 blinking red light.
Bulb was already replaced several months ago but we do have the TV on for long periods of time.
