Question about Sony KDS-R50XBR1 50" HDTV

1 Answer

Power indicator only blinks green for several minutes, then...

My Sony KDS-R50XBR1 has some big issues. When I turn it on, the green standby light will continually blink green. At first it would only take around 3-5 min. then the picture would come on and everything would be fine. But now, it will blink for I would say 10-15 min. with no picture, and then sometimes you can see a faint picture with no sound and the screen ratio size is way to large to fit the screen. I have taken to a repair center and they couldn't find out what was wrong and said it was probalby some kind of "mother board" that was on the TV and that was going to cost me a lot of money (around $1500). Has anyone ever had this problem? If so, what can you suggest.

I had identical problem which continued for months before the screen started to get dim then went completely black with only the audio remaining. This will happen when the lamp and or balast board starts to fail. You can buy replacement lamp off the internet and install it using only a screw driver. Your Sony manual provides instructions. Don't buy any of those cheap off brand lamps; light output might be low.

I have a Sony KDS-R50XBR1 that has no picture. When I turn on the TV, the green Power/Standby LED light blinks for about 30 seconds, then turns red and blinks five times. The Power/Standby LED repeats...


  • Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen A2 slightly.

My KDS-R50XBR1 will power on with picture for approx 1 second with the power light in green, then shut down automatically and the lamp light blinks 4 times. Is this a bad lamp only? Thanks! Mike A.


Hi,
If Lamp light blinks then it is lamp that is near to end of its working life.
If standby light is blinking then it is some thing else, when did you replaced lamp in tv last time?
Thanks.

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.

TV screen went black, sound ok, red light blink 5 times


Be sure its blinking 5 times, count after it cycles the first time through the red lights. If it is fact 5 times, that is a lamp driver error.More likely it cycled 4 times, which is common on this model, if that's the case, then it's the fan. Most likely the large one in the rear...It's an easy fix, just pull the back off and replace the part.
