Question about Sony KDS-R50XBR1 50" HDTV
Our Sony KDS-R50XBR1 was purchased in March 06. We already had the optical part replaced under warranty fall of 07. Today while watching the TV, the screen just went dark. The sound is still present. The green standby light was flashing. I turned it off, unplugged and waited, and no luck. Now when I turn it on, it is dark with sound and the green light flashing for about a minute, then the set turns off and the standby light blinks red in a series of 5. Please help!
For what it's worth: WD40 was designed as a rust inhibitor. I would suggest a lubricant that does not oxidize into a varnish nor evaporate. Marvel Mystery oil would be a better solution or a silicone based oil perhaps. I used Marvel Mystery oil on my bathroom exhaust fan and its been going for 10 years now.

Be sure its blinking 5 times, count after it cycles the first time through the red lights. If it is fact 5 times, that is a lamp driver error.More likely it cycled 4 times, which is common on this model, if that's the case, then it's the fan. Most likely the large one in the rear...It's an easy fix, just pull the back off and replace the part.
