Question about Sony KDF-E42A10 42 in. LCD Television
I have a Sony KDF-E42A10 42" LCD purchased in 2005-paid almost $2000,00 for it. It suddenly made a noise, then went blank with no sound and no picture, but the red light blinks. I called Sony, they were of no help at all. I will never again purchase another SONY TV, In viewing this web site, it seems to have many problems with this product. I thought maybe it was the software problem but the rep came down and said it was a hardware problem. I have no clue, trying to figure out if I should have it repaired or buy a new TV.
Does anyone have a clue as to what it might be and how much it would cost to get fixed???
There are many things this could be. Have you checked the lamp? If the lamp is ghood, how many times does the red light blink? It will blink a number of times and then pause, and blink the same number again. This si an error code that helps with troubleshooting.

There is more than one flourescent tube in your TV, It could be possible that one after the other has failed, these should usually last a few years depending on usage.
If it is not the tubes then there may be a fault in the backlight inverter although this would more likely show up as a sudden failure.
How old is your TV?
