This is caused by a inherent defect in the optical block of the TV. This was a common failure and the only way to fix it is to replace the whole optical block which is very expensive( over $1000) and time consuming (need to take apart the whole TV). Sony is aware of this issue but have yet to extend the warranty for this TV. There is a class action pending against Sony because of this failure.

It turns on, stays on for about 10 seconds and
The lamp is the most likely problem, check that first. There is an lap door you open by taking out one screw and then inspect the lamp for a cloud near the stem of the bulb. If it is cloudy, most likely you lamp is going out. If the lamp is fine, the ballast is going to be the problem that is failing to sustain arch for the lamp.

Hi, my 60 inch Sony
Yes, I can point you towards the voltage control adjustment. You've mentioned that you have basically taken this TV apart, so I will start from the identifying the unit you want to adjust and skip how to expose the guts of your TV. We can cover that too later if you'd like.
These photos are of a Sony KP-51HW40, but the author was pretty convinced the voltage control adjustment module will be identical or very similar in the
This is a picture of the front of the unit, behind the speakers.The little black box
towards the front of the unit is where you will concentrate your time, as
it is the control for the voltage & convergence adjustment.
Here is a close up: When focused in on the
controls, you want to concentrate on the bottom row for the voltage /
ray gun projection adjustment. The colors are labeled below and from
left to right are blue, green, and red. Choose the one that needs to be
adjusted and turn ever so slightly with your Philips screwdriver to
remove the lines. In the authors case, the red just needed to be turned 1/8 of a
rotation to be back in adjustment. Do not turn to quickly or abruptly
or you could possibly damage your TV by varying the voltage too quickly.
I hope that helps.

Won't turn on - red lamp light flashing
Most likely it is the lamp. Open the lamp door and check the lamp visually. If it is shattered or cracks. Also if there is a cloud near the stem of the lamp, the lamp has reached the end of it's serviceable life. Replace the lamp to fix it. If you need further instruction replacing the lamp, there are step by step directions available in your owner's manual with pictures. If you lost the manual, download it in PDF format from Sony's website for free.
