Won't turn on, flashing red light

When we try to power on our tv it won't turn on and the red light flashes five times, pauses, flashes five times, and goes through this cycle a few times.

Any suggestions?

It seems you ballast is going out, i recommend you replaced, don't waste money buying lamps with this issue, get the ballast, they run around 60dll so it's a good deal, go to discountdashmerchantdotcom i've been getting parts from them and they offer great service, it's worth giving them a shot :)

unplug set and plug back, the blinking power light is a error code, watch it carefully, a sequence of three blinks, pause and three blinks is the most common, it is SHORT PROTECTION.

Five blinks and a pause and five blinks is short on 140 volt line.

Let me know what you find and I will offer suggestions for you.

MY wega 42inch wont turn on...the little green light flashes like five time as if it where to turn on but never does...and then it turns red and flash six times pauses and then again the red light flashes...


Six blinks indicates a faulty power supply. often caused by open thermistor located at under lamp assembly or beside it. Or a defective regulator on power supply section.. Check the thermistor and replace if found defective.. Or contact the nearest Sony service center at your area.

Sony WEGA LCD TV Model KFE50A10 wont turn on


It turns out that the number of red lights flashing, relates to a partiuclar error problem. My TV was flashing 4 red lights, pausing , then flashing again etc etc. This particular error meant that one of the five fans within the TV box had stopped funtioning. So the TV has gone to the repairman today. I was advised by an operator at the SONY STYLE CENTRE that such a repair would be considered as a genuine fault and that SONY would pick up the tab. I live in hope

Sony KDP-65WS550 flashes when you try to turn it on


No the DLP units can flash more than 8 times. 9 blinks mean Zero Crossing detector which means diode number D6166 or D6114 is open they are on the A board.Let me know if you need any further info.
