Question about Sony KDS-60A3000 60" HDTV
According to page 45 of the manual, if the bulb is not securely seated the tv can go into diagnostic mode and flash the power led to red 6 times.
I have verified several times that it is seated properly but am still getting the same 6 flashes.
The 6X blink is not the seating of the lamp. The blinking pattern is saying that the door to the lamp chamber is not on properly. Because the fan draws air across the lamp to cool it, the door has to be in place and properly latched for it to do so. I would take the door off, then carefully put it back on so that it does not bind up (which is common on this model). Make sure that the sliding latch goes all the way to the right, and that the screw that holds the latch is tightened hand-tight.
If you are still having problems, then it might be due to a damaged or defective lamp-door switch, which will require an authorized service tech to look at it (only because there are several very delicate parts to this TV that a tech has to be aware of).
I hope this helps you...
