Sony TV problem

I have a 3 year old Sony KDL-46HX820 tv that will not stay on. I did a factory reset and it helped for a while. The problem was intermittent at first, but now it turns itself off after about a minute. The red light blinks 6 times. Anybody with any ideas what is going on?

Six flashes is a problem in the display backlight stages. It could possibly be a loose connector but that is not always the case. TV repair is not really a DIY project anymore. I'll leave you a link for the service manual but servicing requires specialized equipment and board swapping.

Download the manual..... go to page 71 and the diagnostics for your problem are discussed.
