3 year old Sony KDS R50XBR1 suddenly no picture, no sound

About 6 months ago I had green clouds and Sony replaced gun or something. Never had a problem before. Great Picture. Green power light keeps flashing.

    Thanks for your ideas. After several minutes, the green blinking light becomes a red blinking light and just keeps blinking. I hadn't waited long enough before to see the green turn to red. Does that mean something else?

  • sborbas Feb 15, 2009

    When I first turn on the set the green light flashes at the rate of about 120 times a minute. After a couple of minutes it changes to red flashes that flash about 60 times a minute. There are no pauses, no groups of flashes. It just keeps steadily flashing red until I push the power key and then if flashes green. Steve

You had the optical block ( light engine) replaced for the green encroachment problem. Sony has been directed by the Attorney General's office in the state of NY to extend the warranty going back 4 model years for TVs with this problem.

When these TVs do not power up and the green LED continues to blink, there are several possible causes. One is a defective QM board, but there are other possibilites. You should contact an authorized servicer to resolve this issue. You should also call Sony for assistance and possible re-imbursement.

    Yes, its a different issue if the green blinking LED becomes a red blinking LED. Count the number of blinks between pauses. If there are four blinks, its the exhaust fan not running. Three blinks is the lamp door not properly seated, etc. Good luck.

Power error 6 times - 11V is low. - No picture/No sound


From my past experience, yes. Not sure about the 11v being low. My kdf 45 acted that way when the main lamp went out. Found a replacement on Amazon for around $45 and now good to go! So far about a year and a half. Have had to replace about 4 for friends and family so far with same symptoms. All worked great! http://www.amazon.com/F93087600-Projection-Replacement-KDS-R50XBR1-KDS-R60XBR1/dp/B005I4OLAS/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&qid=1386773721&sr=8-13&keywords=Sony+Sony+Kds-r60xbr2+bulb&tag=donations09-20

I have a 2 year old Sony Bravia KDS 50A3000 rear projection TV. We replaced the bulb about 2 months ago and now all of a sudden the bulb will go off and we loose the picture for 35 seconds, nothing happens...


well if you replace the lamp 2 months ago this could be a ballast issue go to your back of the TV and if you ear a weird mechanical noises like a tick,tick when you are down there this is the ballast.

We are noticing a green tint on our Sony KDS-R50XBR1


You have what is referred to as the "Green Blob". Sony messed up bad with the Optical Light Engine. They didnt realize until months after releasing the model you and I have they had a huge problem. So they figured not all Engines were bad. So technically, they havent recalled. I went through several months of talking with Sony and my warranty. You will need to call a tech and have them check to make sure. My tech knew what it was by me telling him over the phone. Hes worked on a more than he cared to say. Sony will play games. They will want a considerable deposit put down before sending the new Engine. And if thats not the problem...they keep your money!!!AAAAHHHHH!!!!I feel for you. I pray you have better service than me. Its been a year since. so maybe they are better. God Bless!!

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.

Sony kds-r50xbr1 turns itself off and then green light blinks 52


I too have a Sony KDS-R60XBR1 tv and the issue that you are experiencing is due to one of your fans in the rear of the tv is not working.  The tv automatically shuts off in protective mode.  Make sure the POWER/STANDBY light is blinking and not the lamp light below it.  Is the power/standby blinking 4 times in red? If, yes then its a fan that needs to be replaced.  If its the lamp light blinking then you need to replace the lamp.  The lamp is easy to replace by ordering the lamp either from Sony for $250 or find it cheaper for approx. $150 from other DLP sources and replace youself by following your manual.  I hope this helps you.
