Your TV is in shutdown. Unplug the set from the wall and wait 30 seconds. Apply power and see if the set comes back on. If the problem is the same (red blinking light) then you need to call a repairman. The most likely suspects are the convergence chips , vertical loss, power regulator or horizontal circuit problems. The shutdown circuit monitors multiple circuits for voltage and current malfunctions. That is why you need someone trained to troubleshoot the problem. Good luck!

Red/green lights both blink and tv will on turn on


Are the red and green lights blinking at the same rate or not? If the green light is blinking every 3 seconds and the red light is blinking every 1/2 second, the lamp door is not properly secured. If both lights are blinking at 1 second intervals, try replacing the lamp. If a new lamp doesn't solve the problem, the TV needs service.

I hope this helps.

My tv won't turn on it clicks on then a second or


When it shuts down do any lights on the front light up red? If so its in prtective shutdown and you can get a two digit blink code by pressing in the menu and device buttons on the front panel. then counting the number of blink. It should blink a series of blinks and pause for the first digit then blink another series and pause for the second digit . then the process repeats. If a code blinks let me know what they were.

When turning on the TV the green light on the front does not come on. You hear a click and then about ten seconds later you hear another click but the tv never comes on.


What light do you get, green blinking, red blinking, yellow steady light or yellow blinking light. The led lights will tell what is wrong with your tv.

Sony kds-r50xbr1 turns itself off and then green light blinks 52


I too have a Sony KDS-R60XBR1 tv and the issue that you are experiencing is due to one of your fans in the rear of the tv is not working.  The tv automatically shuts off in protective mode.  Make sure the POWER/STANDBY light is blinking and not the lamp light below it.  Is the power/standby blinking 4 times in red? If, yes then its a fan that needs to be replaced.  If its the lamp light blinking then you need to replace the lamp.  The lamp is easy to replace by ordering the lamp either from Sony for $250 or find it cheaper for approx. $150 from other DLP sources and replace youself by following your manual.  I hope this helps you.
