We may have to turn it on two, three, or more times before it also lights up and stays on.

Does it blink a certain amount of blinks pause a second or just blink constantly with no pauses? Let me know it will blink a code if its going into protected shutdown. And it will blink constantly for another reason.

I had the same problem about a 8 months ago. I searched online and found that there is a problem with one of the color guns. They need to be replaced. I don't remember where I found the information, but there is a number or something to call for this problem. I think that my authorized sony repair man knew of the problem, there are other models that have the same problem. Anyway, sony replaced all three guns in my tv FREE of charge, and my tv was no longer under warranty. They did all repairs and fixed my tv.

I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions
