Do this: When you turn it on and the green power light comes on and goes off:

On the front of the set press and hold BOTH the Menu and Input buttons at the same time for at least 5 seconds and then release both.

This model has a self check: The green power light will then blink a two digit error code: most common is 2 blinks, 2 blinks and a pause and repeat the error code at least 5 times.

Let me know what you find and I will tell you what it means.

I hope you get 2,2 as it is the most easy to resolve.

I have a rear proj 65" about 6 yrs old. 2. problems. Most important right now is that it turn off a few seconds after I turn it on. I hear the electronic click, see the green light by the button...

This is definitely a problem you don't want to tackle at home. TV's are made to kick off when it knows a problem exists. The warped pic is a "convergence IC" issue. That IC needs to be replaced by a tech, either in home or in shop.
