There are several failure modes. This is one of them.
Need Some More Help! Okay I got the light ballast in and replaced it, had my fingers crossed, but no luck. Same thing happens when I turn on my Unit, the red light blinks 5 times and I hear vol for about a minute and a half and then the unit shuts off! URGHHH. One thing that I noticed was that the small fan that cools down the ballast does not turn on, maybe just wishful thinking. Talked to the Sony rep in town and after talking to him, he says that the only way to diagnose it correctly after everything I have done is to take it in...so any help will be much appreciated.
