Question about Sony KDF-E42A10 42 in. LCD Television
The TV suddenly shut down the other night while i was watching it. Standby LED flashes 4 times - pause then 4 times - pause and so on.
At first i left it for 5 minutes or so and then turned it back on. It started up and ran for 3-5 minutes then shut down with standby led flashinf red 4 time again. Now it will not run at all. As soon as the lamp lights it shuts down.
All vents and fan are clean. Replaced lamp on the advice of dealer but no change. Lamp LED was never lit or never flashed.
Any suggestions? Set was purchased in Dec 2005 and has had a fair bit of use - about ready for lamp replacement anyways but new lamp made no difference and old lamp still lights for approx 2-5 seconds before TV shuts down. Never gets to displaying a picture.
You either have a bad fan or one of the rotation sensors mounted on one of the fans has failed. Take the back off the set and see it the main fan slightly right of center is rotating. If it is, there are two more fans, one mounted right above the lamp and another on the optical block itself. You will have to pull the optical block to check those.
