3 blinks is a lamp cover error, did you make sure that the lamp cover is screwed in tight? Also check the lamp cover for deformity, there is a problem with your model where the set over heats and melts the lamp cover a little causing it not to make connection with the lamp cover switch. Let me know if you find either of these problems? If not we can troubleshoot a little further.
If you have an issue where your picture turns off and the green power light starts flashing, you are most likely looking at a weak or old lamp. Do not be confused with a pix loss and a RED light flashing, as this can be caused by many things. The normal sequence of events for this fix is this: 1) TV turns on normally, plays for 1 to 3 minutes (may be more or less time) 2) Picture goes out and green power light begins flashing. It may flash for up to 2 minutes 3) green light turns on solid (stops flashing) and picture returns. 4) Picture goes out again and process repeats.
You may have been told that "if the lamp light isn't on, it isn't a bad lamp". FALSE! A weak lamp will cause the process above to occur. Other signs of a weak lamp: The reflector in the lamp is very cloudy You may see a "growth" or "bubble" on the vertical glass tube which is the lamp You haven't replaced the lamp in quite some time or it is the original lamp from when you purchased the TV.
In cases like these, try a new lamp. Stick with an original Sony lamp, as there are many stories (both personally witnessed by me and also documented on the web) about problems with after market replacement lamps. And remember, lamps DO NOT have a shelf life; you can store them in a good environment (not too hot or cold!) for an indefinite period with no ill effects.
Hi, It is symptom of weak lamp that has been reached to an end of its working hours life but not dead/ broke yet. If lamp has not been replaced in last 2-3 years then please replace lamp in tv to get solve this problem. Lamp replacement procedure is easy and written in user manual, please buy Sony original lamp for good picture in tv. Thanks.
I am having the same problem as mg2low. I changed the lamp, but my Sony KF60WE610 still will not turn on. It flashes green several times then it begins to flash red. Can you recommend some trouble-shooting for me? Thanks, Richard
You probably need a lamp. Check the code by holding menu and input for 5 sec. If you need a lamp the led will flash 6 times pause then flash 6 times again. The code will repeat several times if you miss the first few flashes. If the code is different, let me know what it is and I can help you. Thanks.
remove back panel. blow out all the dust from all the components except the fan on the right.
Vacuum out all the dust.
Have you replaced the lamp? that would help too.
There are 2 small red lamp. One indicates HEAT problem. The other one is the LAMP indicator.
The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes three times If your power/standby indicator is flashing in a pattern of three flashes, this may indicates that the lamp cover is not attached securely. Follow the directions in the Operating Manual under changing your lamp that related to closing and securing the Lamp Cover. Ensure that the Lamp Cover Door is securely fastened by tightening each screw.
The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes continously If your power/standby indicator is flashing continuously, and the lamp cover has been secured, your TV may be in need of service.
The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up green (not flashing) A sustained green light indicates your TV is on.
The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up red (not flashing) A sustained red light from your power/standby indicator simply indicates that your TV is in standby mode. This shows you that your TV is ready to be turned on with the remote.
Is it the power light and not the lamp light? If the lamp light is flashing then replace the lamp.
