Re: momentary green light
If it reads and plays all the media types ok, you do not have a problem. If it does not read some of the media types, and not others, the Laser needs Cleaning and adjusting. Also, if your not comfortable cleaning the lens, See www.playsationclinic.com

Make sure its an original Osram or Philips bulb inside the housing. If its a cheap lamp it will act this way. If it is an original lamp, then you may have a power supply issue. It shouldn't affect your TV but you may want to try resetting the lamp timer by following the instructions that came with the lamp.
TY-LA1001 Timer reset
While pressing the VOL- button on the projection display, hold down the number 0 button on the remote control at the same time for more than 5 seconds.
The lamp for this model number is XL-5100
Before ordering the lamp, I would inspect the inside of the TV, be certain that the three fans are clean and free from dust. Often if a fan does not start the first time it may start on a restart. Due to the nature of televisions operating, dust seems drawn to these TV's. Cleaning the fans might correct your issue.
Look at the manual page 34, for the indicator messages. I suspect it's the same problem I have (which I haven't had formally diagnosed yet!), which I believe is a defective fan. My projector had been making a really loud noise on startup, which varied in length and volume. Recently the projector has taken to turning itself off after being on for about a minute, and the power light flashes green, with the temp and lamp lights flashing red.
Your Slim has a short circuit somewhere. I run a repair shop for Playstations and what I do is clean the Ciruit board and fan out real good to get rid of Dust and lint. Sometime the dust gets wet someway, and begins to conduct the power. This will cause the Slim to go green for a second and then back red.
Remove the screw covers on the bottom of the slim
Remove the screws, I think I remember 7 screws. At least 6.
Remove any disc
Pop the cover up from the back. Sometimes the Right side will not want to pop loose, but it is ok to force it.
Disassemble the console guts carefully. Do not stand on carpet when working on the motherboard. Stand on wood, Ceramic, or Linoleum.
Clean every speck of dust and lint out of the conole.
REassemble and test.
I hope this works for you. Post another comment to this page and I will repsond. You might want to send it off for repair at www.playstationclinic.com
