3 blinks is indicating the lamp has burned out. Aftermarket lamps tend to fail quickly. Only use oem replacement lamps for your sony. You can get replacement lamps from www.tvrepairworld.com

SOURCE: CHANGE A LAMP

Check the owners manual for instructions. If you don't have it download one from Sony's support website.

There is an external cover over the lamp that is removed with thumb screw(s). If the lamp has a lever, simply lift it and pull. If it is secured with an allen screw, unscrew it and pull the bulb out. Note the lamp orientation and put the new one back oriented the same way. If the old one gets disoriented after you take it out, just match up the high voltage connector inside the TV with the one on the lamp.

It's in standby mode.

Do a reset and see what happens

While holding down the reset button on the remote
Press the power button on the tv
(The tv will turn itself off the back on)
Now release the reset button

It sounds like the lamp needs replaced.


Please rate this a fixya

SOURCE: kdf-50e2000: Shuts off by itself, lamp blinks 4

I just had this issue. I think this solution worked for me. (We'll see after watching for a few more hours.) The TV was intermittently cutting off and then turning back on every 90 seconds or so. It was as though the power was barely breaking contact every once in a while. Kind of frustrating considering that it is a $1000 TV.

The fix I used is in this thread at the URL below. There is a photo of the problem source. I do not think you need a new $160 lamp. The problem is a little "switch" that makes contact between the lamp and the ballast (power regulator).

http://www.agoraquest.com/viewtopic.php?topic=34458&forum=34

The "switch" is not so much of a switch as much as a thin piece of metal that makes contact with the lamp. See the photo in the discussion thread. I bent it out about a quarter of an inch and then reinstalled the lamp. So far so good.

I will post again if the problem crops up again.

My kdf-e42a10 tv won't come on flashes green 7 times then flashes red 3 times.


The 3 blinks is lamp door not closed, what it really means is the door may be warped from the heat of the lamp===the door has a plastic peg on the back that when the door is in place engages a lever just behind the door. If the door is even a little bowed=three blinks.

Engage the lever with something not metal and see if set comes on, if it does replace the door.

Heard a pop , bulb blew out , replaced bulb , it worked for two days , now red light blinks three times pauses then three times and so on , tv won't turn off light won't turn off unless I unplug...


3 blinks indicates lamp door is not on or has not been reinstalled properly. This also could mean the lamp door switch has failed itself. Try removing the lamp door and putting back on, if that doesnt correct the problem then I recommend having the switch replaced.

Hi, Our Sony Bravia TV model number KDF E50A11E is not working. There is a red blinking light flashes three times and then goes green and then red blinking again after about 3 seconds. Is this a bulb...


On that particular model I believe there is both a lamp indicator light and then the power indicator light. If it is lamp related the lamp indicator light (LED that looks like a sun in a cup...) would be on.

If the power indicator light is flashing red to green, that is a self diagnostic code, and you will have to contact an authorized Sony repair fascility for them to translate the problem. The error codes are not listed in the user manual, since most are not user serviceable.

KDF-50a12U Powers off then standby light blinks 3 times


Please recheck Lamp Cover and make sure it is fixed in its space securely as 3 times red blink shows lamp cover error.
There is small safety switch in TV cabinet under lamp cover that has to be pushed by lamp cover if it is fixed in its position properly. That switch is not being pressed by lamp cover and causing this error.
Thanks.
