Question about Sony Televison & Video
The tv went onto standby and I cannot get it to work. It is approx 6 years old and I remember when I bought it I was told that the bulb would go after a few years. Is that it, and can it be replaced and what cost?
Google the model number to locate it with "lamp" and You Tube has video instructions for replacing in most models--lamp has a 2,000 hour or 2 year average life and is meant to be replaceable by the customer who owns the set.

Your TV requires service and cleaning of screen, mirror and 3 lenses (of CRTs) as looks dusty.
Below is an exploded view how to take off front beznet assembly of this TV to clean inside with moist cotton cloth.

6 blinks on your model means the +5V line is either overloaded or shorted on the A or B board. You can get replacement boards at the following link and they will assist you in determining which board of the two you actually may need.

Two things here.
1) This is a CRT based set so there is no "lamp" involved.
2) The standby light should be blinking a repeated count of blinks with a 2 second pause between counts. Please report the exact count here. This will indicate the circiut in which a problem was detected.
With the above information, we can provide you with a more detailed description of the problem as well as the likely solutions and cost.

yes replace the lamp, sony units have certain specs that the lamp must meet to operate correctly. If the Lamp you purchased is made by LTI, these lamps do not last long as they are poorly manufactured. Look at the bulb and see who is the maker if its says LTI then replace with a Phillips brand that meets spec's for sony.
