Either bad capacitors -vented - on power supply board or bad E2P eprom board on DM board.Probably the capacitors-4-1000Ufd and 2-3300ufd.You should get expert help from reputable tv shop.Not really do it yourself fix either way.

does it work ok on other inputs? such as dvd or games , etc? If so, your tuner could have gone out in the tv. You can fix this, OR you could simply bypass it by getting the digital cable box from your cable provider and running the RCA outputs from the cable box into one of your other inputs like video 1 .

If the lamp light is lit, it is likely a bad lamp. If you remove the lamp from the set, you will either see shards of glass in the housing and/or a very cloudy reflector (it should look like a mirror). Be sure to use an original Sony lamp as the replacements are trouble makers. Please be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

It can be saved, but you need to determine the fan that is bad. Looking at the set from the rear, on the left side you will see a series of baffles. Shine a light in there and you will see a fan. Have someone turn on the power and watch this fan. If it doesn't turn, there is your culprit. This is the most likely fan to fail. Please be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

It certainly sounds like a thermal problem.  I would look to the (3) cooling fans as the most likely culprit.  Since this model will normally give an error indication (blinking lights and no picture) at startup if it detects a fan failure, my guess is that there one of the fans is underperforming, but not yet completely failed.  This is commonly caused by dust/pet hair/smoking residue on the fans themselves, or in the airways that bring in fresh air and exhaust hot air.  If the set is located near a heat register, radiator, or other heat source, that could also contribute to the fault you are describing. Whatever the cause, experience tells me that no good can come from repeatedly slamming any part of a high end piece of home theatre equipment.  I would not advise continuing this practice.

it is a bad fan. it also could be a power supply. Quite often the real problem is dirt clogging up the fan(s) to the point that they need to be replaced. Operation of the set in a dirty environment is not a good idea

If it came with batteries replace them with new Duracell batteries. The batteries are probably Chinese, low quality and partially drained.

It is never good to use Universal remotes. These days people buy Facsimile remotes which are a clone of the original will all the same buttons and features as the original.
