Sony LCD TV Screen displays picture then goes blank

by deity307 - 7/15/13 4:21 AM

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone would possibly know the solution to my broken Sony LCD TV.

When I turn on the TV screen, the screen displays for about a second, and then it goes blank. Here is a video of my TV doing this:

Notice how the display actually shows for about a second, then all of a sudeen the screen goes "blank."

A few things:

-When the screen goes blank, it's actually not "off." The green light is still on, and when I play around with scrolling with the channels using the remote, when I turn it off and turn it back on, I see that the channels change. So clearly, the TV still accepts input from my remote on the TV buttons itself. But it's just the display that's not displaying correctly:

-This problem occurred right before I connected the Playstation 3 HDMI cable to the TV. I'm not sure but the PS3 could have possibly messed up the settings

-Here is more information about the TV, the model number and stuff:

Anyone know the solution or what the actual problem is? Hopefully I can fix it. I've tried resetting the TV to default settings, but that didn't work. I also tried calling Sony, but they couldn't find a solution and they suggested to get someone to look at it, but I'm sure it would far too much money for an expensive repair. If I can't find a solution, then I'll most likely just buy a new LED/LCD TV, because it's cheaper than repairing this one.
