55 in Sony TV turns off and on by itself

My 55 in Sony TV turns off and on by itself. I turn the TV on and a few minutes later it will turn itself off. A green light begins flashing (it flashes about 30 times) and then the TV turns back on.

The same problem is occuring with my Sony LED EX330. And I have applied all the solution provided. But the problem still exists. Even people from Sony Service center took my TV with them for rectification and delivered by saying, we have changed the Mother Board and  your TV is all right now. This happened twice but the problem is still exist. I dont know how trained your engineers are, but I want my TV either to be replaced or the problem should be fix. Otherwise, I have to go to consumer court and I will update these problem and your inability to fix it on FACEBOOK and TWITTER.


Please look in to this matter as soon as possible.


Thanks in advance,

Vishwajeet Singh

Hi Everyone!


 I tried the method sent by an email from Sony and it did not work. Thankfully I kept playing around and searching the internet for answers. I found a link on sony that helps with Sony's turning on and off and the blinking.

I have the KDL-70R550A model and the TV was turning itself on and off my itself, no lights blinking.

I tracked the problem down to this firmware update,. To fix do a hard reset the TV without connecting to the Internet. It will reload the factory firmware. Set the TV not to automatically load updates in settings,
