Sony Projector TV KP-53V45

I bought this tv 2 weeks ago from local resell (thrift) store. Been working fine until today. Tv powers on for about 1 to 1-1/2 hours then stand by led light comes on solid and tv will do nothing. Went thru Sony online CS. They talked me thru Power Up troubleshooting. Tv powered up! ...Then one hour later, same issue. Been doing this all day now. When I finally get the set to power back on, the stand by led blinks 5 times then pic comes on. Called the pos store I bought it at and they said "tough luck"! Local repair center wants $150 just to come out and look at it. Any ideas?? Can someone talk me thru how to maybe fix this myself?? I'm a "girl" but I am mechanically inclined

I haven't worked on a Sony rear projection in a while but I believe that one issue when you see the five LED flashes is that the AKB (auto kine balance) circuit is at fault.

Try turning the brightness down on the set and see if that extends the run time.

Let us know if that has an effect and we'll go from there.
