Question about Sony KP-53S65 53" Rear Projection Television
I have tried unplugging it for 15 seconds, still flashing.
It probably was a bad product. Call sony and they should send you a replacement depending on how old your product is.

Check out Ceramic Capacitor C514 by the horiz. output transistor (burned/shorted?) My question is how do you find the specs of the capacitor and where do you buy one?

This indicates a short happened somewhere in the set, causing the set to go into "safe mode" where it won't let itself turn on. Oftentimes it's the convergence board. Depending on what that will cost you, you may want to just replace the set.

You definitely have a bad lamp. Sony rates the lamp life at between 4000 and 8000 hours. There are 3 things that effect the lamp life, listed in order of importance:
1) number of times the lamp is turned on and off. Every time the lamp is first fired, it takes life off the lamp. Customers I see that turn the TV on in the morning, leave it on all day and then turn it off on the evening can get up to 12000 lamp hours
2) ventilation. Be sure you have at least 6 inches of open space all the way around the set and that the vents are clear of dust and debris.
3) power. If the power is interrupted when the set is on, there cannot be a proper cool down cycle. The fans will run after you turn the set off to properly cool it down, if the power is lost this cannot happen. If your power is unreliable, buy a small UPS to let the set finish a cool down cycle
Occasionally a lamp will faill before the average lamp time due to being defective. from your purchase date it sounds like you got about average lamp time. Be sure to purchase AN ORIGINAL SONY LAMP as a replacement, becuase the aftermarket lamps are bad news, Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!
