TV Picture Goes Black

After turning TV on you get picture and sounds for 3 seconds. Then TV picture goes black and sound is gone. Green light flashes for about 10 seconds. Then picture returns and sound comes back. Then the cycle repeats itself until you turn the TV off. I called Sony and we turned the TV off and unplugged it and waited for a few minutes then plugged it back in and powered the TV up. Picture and sounds were on for a few seconds....then picture and sounds went out then green light flashed. After a few seconds picture came back for 15mins. until it was turned picture and sound goes to black w/ no sound w/ green light flashing for 10 seconds.

    Yes, Tv's picture suddenly turn black, no sound. Tried to unplug everything, then turned-on again, power indicator flashed green then red, still no picture, still no sound.

    I am checking online issued so maybe i can get inputs and repair the TV myself, i found the place where to buy the Lamp Block Assy XL-2200U, priced at $199.99.

    Will research more online, how they fixed their unit.

    The same exact thing is happening with our Sony Wega TV.
    Turn TV on and after a few seconds/minute, screen goes black with no audio sound and green light under "Power/Standby" begins to blink for about 30+ seconds...until the screen appears again w/ sound for a few seconds before it vanishes again.
    Already tried cooling off the TV, unplugging it, plugging it back in.
    I don't know if it's the Lamp though because the light doesn't blink under the "Lamp" category but under the "Power/Standby" instead.

    Same problem. TV goes off (green light blinks), then comes back on. Cycle repeats every minute or so. Tried unplugging. Tried cleaning. Lamp looks OK.

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

I had the same issue, took out the lamp and cleaned it. Popped it back in and works fine.

    As an additional note, after cleaning the lamp i was able to get about 3 months of use with no issues and then the problem came back. My guess is this is an indicator that the lamp is on it's last leg. I replaced the lamp this week and it's working wonderfully again.

    Good luck

I had similar problem as you. What fixed it for me was to replace the lamp.

Same thing with our 60 inch Sony Wega. Black screen and no sound. We replaced the lamp about 3 months ago for 200.00. Of course no warranty. 3rd lamp in one year.

Sanyo LCD TV has green light , no picture or sound.

You have the classic symptoms of a power supply failure. Visual inspection of capacitors is not a reliable method of solving the problem

Samsung HLP4674W - changed bulb - still no picture - lights flash

If the lamp has been replaced I would think the Lamp ballast would be most likliest followed by the color wheel and then the Digital board. You can get any part needed for your model at just leave them a email they respond quickly.

Green Screen, No Sound, Shuts off after 10 seconds

Almost certainly the green picture tube is shorted. This is a very expensive repair; probably not worth doing.

My Sony comes on then both sound and picture goes black.

After being on a little while, the screen goes black (no audio as well) for 20 to 30 seconds. Green light stays on. Then, picture comes back on and takes a couple of seconds to get up to full brightness. About 5 seconds or so after the video comes back, the audio returns.

Until this morning, has only happened a couple of times a day, now happening more often. About 3 times in last 20 minutes.

KDF-E55A20 is about 3 years old.
