Called a repair man that wanted to charge $500 to replace the bulb. Decided to purchase the bulb ourselves are replace. Once we replaced the bulb and turned the TV only red light flashes and the TV does not turn on. The bulb clearly blew because there was white powder everywhere. Is there a reset button or something. Please help Thank you

    What happens if the bulb is flashing four times for a 60" DLP and I replaced the bulb with a sony XL-5300 for it only to come on for a fraction of a second then the bulb to blink red 4 times. The replacement bulb came with the TV I am totally frustrated! I am disabled and cannot afford to spend $4-500.00 on fixing this.What to do?

    Is the only solution there is in this society,is to buy a new one? Is everything disposable? Have we really gotten that pathetic that the major Co. in this world trained us invest thousands of dollars and when something breaks just buy a new one? We really deserve what we get if we except that sort of thing when we buy top of the line equipment!

Hello, please check how many times the red light flashes. If it is 3 times this means that the lamp cover is not fastened securely. If the red light flashes 5 times this means that the lamp driver is defect. If you need more help please advice

    Hello,

    6 times flashing means that the GM board is defect. Please contact the Authorized Sony Service or the technician with best references.

    Best regards,

Sony KDS-R50XBR1 shutting off


When the lamp becomes weak in this Sony the unit will shut off intermittently. I would replace the lamp and use only an OEM Sony lamp, not an LTI or other knock off. The knock off lamps are of poor quality in my experience and opinion.
