    I have exactly the same problem. It turns off by itself, blinks 6 times and then blinks 6 times again and again. Sometimes it works perfectly for days but now it started doing it all the time. Please help.

    Both lamp and fan have been checked... the repair shop wants $500 for a new power supply board even though they say that might not be the problem... this will be my last SONY purchase ever. The SONY website/ customer service people have been no help at all.

Sony KDF-50E2000 shuts down and blinks repeatedly twice.


The 2 blink error is a temperature error and the 6 blink error is a thermal fuse error. You may need to unplug the set and get you a can of canned air, take off the back lower cover and blow out all of the fans inside the set.

I have a Philips Plasma tv 42pf5321d/37 with sound but no picture


Thats the great sound of Exploding capacitors on either the power supply board. or another one in there. Now the set is in fault protection. It tried to warn you with the RED blinking LED that there was something amiss by shutting itself down. When you unplugged you reset the error and allowed it to do it again.
