42" Sony LCD Projection

Hi all, today out of the blue while watching TV, it turned off and it won't come back on again. when I turn the TV on, the light turns grees, blink then turns red and constantly blind 6 times in a row, stops, then repeats. Does this mean that the bulb needs to be changed? has anyone ran into this problem before? thank you.

Re: 42" Sony LCD Projection

The manual indicates a six blink is "low B error, no"DD 6V" output from "g" board" the "g" board in a sony is usuall the main power supply board. the center pin of "D1634" is where the +6V comes from, don't short the pins while checking. good luck

Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixilation even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine you can find it here: . Have a blessed one!

LCD TV Problem

Replace Lamp in TV and lamp replacement procedure would be written in Instruction Manual of TV.

Always buy Sony Original Lamp for smooth picture result and avoid aftermarket/ cheap lamps.

Let me know exact model number of TV if you need more help.

Tv has little blue dots

Once again, this is a problem with the optical block or light engine assy. The LCD panels have been damaged by excessive heat from the lamp. Sony has been directed by the New York state attorney general's office to extend warranties on these sets for models going back 4 years. Call Sony at 1-800-222-SONY for assistance.
