There are safety interlocks on the door and lamp. Try reseating the lamp and carefully reseating the access door(s). If either is not exactly correct, the unit will not turn on. Check any of the access doors including in the area of the fan.

If it still fails, update this and I'll research your specific model. Please note that the blinking light is a code that should be listed in the owners manual. That code will tell you which interlock is not set so you know where to look.

I changed the lamp, but now the standby blinks green for about 10 seconds, then blinks red in 3's.


Check the lamp door cover. It will engage to safety switch when properly seat-in. When this switch is open your unit will not power up like what you've encountered right now. Go back to lamp assembly and check this part, re-install the lamp door cover and ensure that it will engaged to the switch.

Hi,

The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV. The self-diagnostic function of the TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue.

Few examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
1 blink / 2 blinks / 5 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set.
3 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. The set will need to be serviced to allow a technician to determine the specific issue that needs to be repaired. If the power light flashes three times in sequence in a Lamp TV, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
4 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a back light or lamp power problem.
6 blinks: - This indicates that there is some kind of audio problem with your set.
7 blinks: - This indicates that there is a temperature problem with your set. Please check to make sure that the air vents on the sides and back of the set are not blocked or clogged and there is adequate ventilation around the television. We recommend that you check and clean the vents periodically to make sure the set receives adequate air flow. If the problem continues, the set will need to be serviced.
8 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a video-related problem with your set. If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.

If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.


Thanks for using Fixya.

I have replaced the lamp block and now the power stand by red light is going on and of (this was a new lamp block). Do I need to reset some how?


Hi,
If standby red light is blinking 3 times after three second pause then check lamp cover that has no been fixed in its place correctly, it is first thing that you removed from tv cabinet to replace lamp, make sure lamp cover is back in place properly and tight.
If standby red light is blinking more or less then 3 times, let me know to diagnose problem.
Thanks.

Automatically shuts down Blinking red light where power light is


hello the lamp most likely is going bad once the set comes on the lamp light won't come on to tell you it's bad but the amount of times the light blinks in a row tells us whats going on. you need to clean with a vaccume the vent areas on the back cover to make sure the fans can cool it properly (never use canned air our blow any thing into the tv, it could blow dust onto the optics and cause a distortion in your picture-little splotches) just order a sony lamp and put back in the tv, some after market lamps can cause a lamp driver board failure and that will take a tech to fix.thanks.....techman

Lamp replaced and the set doesn't come on.


Please make sure lamp cover is fixed properly after lamp replacement.
3 blinks shows that lamp cover is either not put back or not fixed properly in its position.
Thanks.

KDF-50a12U Powers off then standby light blinks 3 times


Please recheck Lamp Cover and make sure it is fixed in its space securely as 3 times red blink shows lamp cover error.
There is small safety switch in TV cabinet under lamp cover that has to be pushed by lamp cover if it is fixed in its position properly. That switch is not being pressed by lamp cover and causing this error.
Thanks.

Replaced bulb in a kdf-e42a10 and worked for about 8 hours


3 times red light blinks shows that Lamp Cover is Open. Please put back lamp cover properly.
I would recommend to always replace with Original Sony Lamp and avoid aftermarket or compatible lamps.
