    My 2 year old Sony kds-60a2000 will not power up... the Red power lcd flashes 4 times.



    the first time this happened about a year ago, I (VERRRRRRRY CAREFULLY!!!) disassembled the cooling fan and vacuumed the dust out of the back vents and fan housing, reassembled the tv and it worked fine for a year. This happened again a couple last week and I went through the same routine of removing the rear panel and cleaning behind, around and inside (AGAIN, VERRRRRRRY CAREFULLY)... same routine with fan housing too. Reassembled and powered up. TV again worked; however, this time it would not power up the next morning and the 4 red flashes were back on the power indicator.



    Appears to be a dust / cooling problem, but unsure now.



    Have not been able to bring myself to pay a tech 100's of dollars for this problem after having just spent $370.00 a little over a year ago to have the lamp replaced 10 days after the factory warranty expired... and again purchasing a replacement lamp 2 months ago on E-Bay for $100.00 to replace the ($370.00 / 11 month old) SONY bulb yet again.



    Set is filled with problems.... think someone else summed it up well with "It's a Money Pit."



    Instead of a "hole in the water one pours money into...!" (i.e. BOAT)

    This set is a "hole in the living room one pours money into..." (i.e. SONY)



    If someone knows how to fix without service tech $$$ please let us know!

    Thanks!

The most likely failure is either the G1 or G2 power supply boards, but it will take a qualified technician who is familiar with this set to narrow down which one is bad. Basically you are looking at a power supply fault, either a component in the power supply has failed or something is loading the power supply down causing the fault.

TV turns red,shuts off, stand-by light blinking 8Times


Eight blinks - Problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and blinks the self-diagnosis code. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401, and 402. On some projection models of Sony TV sets, this code means that T8005 (flyback transformer), or the associative components in the high voltage circuits are defective on the D board.

or a new lamp. you could first replace the lamp.
the screen might work fine for a couple of seconds, but then it fades away or deteriorates. This means the lamp is going bad.
