You didnt replace the STK's? You must replace the convergance IC's or you will continue to have this problem.

SOURCE: Sony xl 5200 door close safety switch

not sure if this helps---some of these sets had a problem---the three blinks usually means door not closed properly--remove door and look carefully at it--if it is warped from the heat---the plastic peg on the back of it will not engage the lever(it is a safety switch that prevents the set from working if the door is removed) look behind the door where the plastic peg is--if it is your problem you just have to use something not metal to move the lever and then while in place turn the set on---if it comes on normal--order a new door---they are about 5 dollars plus shipping--if you need direct help email me with the exact model number--if this has been helpful give me a vote------

SOURCE: TV not working after replacing lamp

yes, the door has to engage a switch and if it doesn't the tv will not come on it usually has a 3 blink error if this is the problem. Is your red light flashing in a 3 blink series?

Look for a small switch that is pressed when the door is insert/closed. Close the circuit and it should work.

Replaced bulb for a PT-50LC14...worked great til I turned TV on then click off 25 seconds after. 3 hrs later...turned it on and nothing except 8 green blinks on power button then solid red(shuts off) No...

Remove lamp to see if it was not inserted correctly (easy mistake to make) and also make sure door on lamp was closed securely--a safety lever there will prevent set from working if door not engaging the lever.

Replaced lamp in sony sxrd 50 inch rear projection and getting 3 red blinks for lamp door not closed ..have taken off and put on several times with same results..any suggestions?

Sony Lamp issueI see this so much that I am going to compose and save this answer:

3 blinks (it is in the owner manual) is "Lamp door not properlyclosed".

What is really wrong is if you remove the door and look edgewise it will likely be warped from the heat from the lamp.

1. On most of these but not all SONY knows of this and offers on many models to repair or replace the set for free---somemodels the heat also warps the area thelamp inserts in.

2. If you look at the back of the door there is a small plastic peg--it whendoor is installed engages a lever (small and designed to prevent the set frombeing used if door is open).

3. The way to prove if door is the problem is to with something not metalengage and hold the lever where the peg goes (you will have door off and alsothe large front plate giving access to lamp) and turning set on.


DO NOT OPERATE SET FOR A PROLONGED TIME WITH DOOR REMOVED OR THE FRONT PLATE(that covers access to lamp) attached as the heat with door removed can damagethe outer plate.

4. If set works then you have a few choices=Google the model number with"lamp door" or order it from Sony and replace it.

I was given this model tv. The green and red lights on the front are flashing. Says to replace bulb and close lamp cover correctly. I am missing the lamp cover. Is that going to be a problem?

U mean the Lamp door cover?Yes?Tv might work,might not.Don't know never tries to turn the tv on before without a Lamp door cover close before.There is a blue safety switch though must be press down when the Lamp door cover is close.Test it out.Why don't u just take a piece of tape and tape that blue safety switch down tightly,than turn on the tv.If the tv message that said close lamp cover correctly disappear.Than yes the tv will work,without the lamp cover closed.Now u just needed to do a replacement of the tv projection lamp only that all.

Just replaced the lamp after 2 years. TV worked

Make sure that the lamp cage is seating well .. then make sure the door is closed properly. there is a door switch and if the door dont close right the switch may be telling the set the lamp is out.
