4 blinks is a fan error. I would take the back off and look to see if the fans that are visable are spinning when you try to turn it on. If you see one that is not spinning it needs to be replaced. If all the fans you can see are spining then there may be some fans that are hidden, in this case you will need to be able to use a meter to determine what fan to replace. Let me know what you find!

I have a kdf-e42a10 tv no sound or picture red light flashes continuous


How many times this standby/power light blinks at one time switch ON?Count it carefully.These blinks are fault indication, and known as blinking codes.From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON; you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV.This will make repair easy.

Hi,
Please make sure lamp cover is fixed properly as it was removed to replace/ check lamp in tv.
If lamp cover is not fixed, tv will not turn On and red light will blink 3 times.
Thanks.

My parents have a Sony KDF-E42A10 42" LCD TV. They have audio, but no video. Screen is black. Do you think they need a bulb replacement?


Yes, if lamp has not been replaced in last 2-3 years then it is lamp problem. If tv does not shut down and its standby light does not blink in red then lamp is cause of problem, replace it to fix tv issue.

Only comes on for a second power light blinks red 4 times, stops then repeats


4 times standby red light blinking is an error code that shows that Fan problem in tv. Check following possible causes of that problem in tv:
1- Fan 1-4 power is not supplied. (AGU board).
2- Fan caught wires or harnesses.
3- Fan connector is not attached securely.
Thanks.

Sony KDF-E42A10 rear projection TV. Won't turn on.


Start by changing the lamp. If you got 5 years out of the old one, count your blessings, most folks only get three. The lamp is designed to be replaced by the consumer. Ebay will carry a replacement for you or you can get it directly from rivervalleyelectronics.net. They've got good prices. The lamp door is on the back. Its really easy, give it a shot.
