Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

My Sony kds-R60XBR1 went dark last night. The red stand-by light began blinking in intervals of 5 blinks Called Sony but unplugging the set and reset button attempts failed to start the set back up; It looks like some kind of a repair job to me. Any knowledge on this problem is greatly appreciated. Carl

Fuse replacement for KDS-R60XBR1


The info does not tell what is wrong---set has more than one fuse and if dead the set may still have lights on the front that light or blink (red one) in a specific sequence--5 blinks, pause and 5 blink etc.

A bit more info is needed to assist you.

Hi! GREAT site! We have a Sony SXRD KDS-R60XBR1 Projection TV and it stopped working last night... We are getting FIVE red blinks! What does that mean? Fans, bulbs.... ??? Thank you in advance for any...


5 blinks if for the ballast that powers the light. You can try changing the bulb first, if that doesn't fix it then I believ it will be your ballast. If you haven't changed the bulb before It could probably use one anyway, and you could keep the old for a spare.
Here are some more from sony on this.
According to Sony:

Red LED Flashing four(4) times
o Fan not plugged in
o Foreign object hitting blades
o CN2301 on ASU board not seated or connected
o ASU shield touching S1 board

Red LED Flashing five(5) times
o Interconnect harness from Lamp driver 5-pin to ASU 9-pin board not connected
o Lamp driver failure
o Bent pin on Lamp driver 5-pin connector
o DSU to C board harness not locked
o CN6501 on G board not seated or connected
o Lamp failure

Have had to replace lamp twice in the last two years on my Sony KDS-R60XBR1 HDTV. Yesterday I ended up with the four blinking red lights showing on the Power/Standby indicator nothing by the lamp...

Turn on the TV. While holding down the up arrow button on the remote control, press the POWER (on off switch) button on the TV. (The TV will turn itself off, then back on again.)

I had the same problem if it is blinking 4 times like I think it is... it is a problem with one of the fans (there are 4) in your TV.. It is a simple fix... try using an air canister to clean them. It will require some disassembly though.
