SOURCE: TV shut off while watching and won't come back on

It seems this is a self diagnostic function. the official sony codes are as follows

  • Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.
  • Six blinks - No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking self-diagnosis function immediately. Check C515 & 516 and the jungle IC, IC206.
It sounds like you have a video input problem. Have you unhooked all inputs from the TV and tried to power it back on by itself? Hope this helps

SOURCE: power light flashed red 4 times then repeats no pic,new bulb/fan!

Check the fan that cools the bulb. It is directly behing the bulb. It should turn on when the power comes on. It apparently has a safety to protect your tv(and home). mine is in the process of going out. looking for online solutions as we speak.

SOURCE: my red light is blinking 3 times, the picture

Hi,It sounds like an issue with the board that powers the lamp it's called the ballast.The ballast has a sensor that it detects when lamp is not responding or if ballast is not able to provide enough power to light it up,that's when you get the lamp indicator.This is the most common failure .When you put a new bulb in sometimes the ballast is not able to power it since it uses more voltage that what it was providing to the old lamp.The ballast is something easy to replace and it's cheaper than the lamp.Have a bless one!

Panasonic PTL500 LCD HIDEF projector - Unit occasionally powered up briefly, lamp lit, then shut down, standby LED flashed orange/red. Sometimes lamp lit and sometimes not. Technician diagnosed bad ballast...


The bulb is a discharge type - it needs a very high tension to work. The role of the ballast board is to convert the low voltage DC current coming from the power source in a high tension DC current for the bulb. Unfortunately you were truly unlucky : when the ballast board died it sent a high tension surge thru the power source and from there at the other components on the mainboard - the processor couldn't handle it and got fried. So now when you try to start the projector this is what happens: the power source starts normally - the status light goes to green as it should; it functions normally so it powers the ballast board and the rest of the mainboard - the ballast works so the bulb lights up; the mainboard on the other hand remains dead because the processor is dead so no sustain signal is sent to the power source; without the sustain signal the power source goes, as it should , in an very normal stand-by - the status light goes to red.
The entire mainboard will have to be replaced - you can't replace just the processor, it's glued in there. This is going to be expensive so ask a quote before doing it.

If you take the back off you might find a couple of bulged electrolytic caps on the power supply board that need change, or just buy a new power supply at www.partstore.com

3 red flashing is a lamp error, not the fans. the lamp has a problem striking. make sure it's pushed in and plugged in all the way. if the lamp is not that old, the power supply needs replacing.

Power light flashin orange, status light flashing red on WT610 NEC


if the status light is flashing .5 seconds on and 2.5 seconds off - you need to replace the lamp cover correctly.
if the status light is flashing .5 seconds on and .5 seconds off in 2 - 6 cycles the error is: 2 cycles - the projector is overheated. Move the projector to a cooler location, or/and remove dust in the light path. 3 cycles - the power unit is not working correctly. 4 cycles - the fans are not working correctly 5 cycles - lamp fails to light. Wait a full minute and then turn on again.

The $1200 was for the lcd engine not the lamp. You should change the lamp. The buzz is the power supply trying to light the lamp.
