The power up sequence is being interrupted and this could either be the main power supply or a protective shutdown of the supply because of a downstream failure. The clicking you hear is the activation and dropout of a relay.

If the flashing seems to be in a pattern, it may be telling you what has failed via the coded flashing. Any Sony service (or service tech) can tell you what the problem likely is if there is a pattern to it.

First, if you have the manual, open it to troubleshooting, if you don't have it; www.sonystyle.com then click on support, then manuals. you can download it for free. The manual will decipher the flashes for you to narrow down your possibilities. The three main problems in the Sony lineup are the optical block, the bulb, and the fan. The fan is the only real obvious one that can be fixed quickly. When you turn on the TV, the fan should click on ( may vary depending on your main setup from TV menu) However, if you have any compressed air (dust off) etc. The fan is on the rear of the set on the right lower 1/3rd (looking from behind set) Location is in the manual too. If the fan can't turn on, the TV will shut down. Also, go to this site for further help from "Sony"
