Sony Bravia KDS-60A3000 won't power up 9 flashing red power light

Sony Bravia KDS-60A3000 won't power up. Power light on front of unit turns green when you power on and picture appears for two seconds then powers off with tthe power light turning red and flashing nine times. After 9 flashings of the red power light the system pauses and then repeatily does the same thing over and over again. I contacted Sony and they provided me with their troubleshooting solution to unplug the unit for a few moments from the wall outlet and then replug the tv back in and try again.....Did not work. Does anyone have /had the same problem and what was or what might be the problem and/or solution. Hope someone can help. Thank you, Don

According to other posts I have read (I have same problem) there is no power getting to the fans. They recommend re-seating the fan harness again as it might have come loose or might have dust etc., in it.

I have no idea how to do this yet but that is what the trouble-shooting guide says.

My sony bravia kds-60a3000 loses picture, power button blinks, sound continues to work. The picture comes back on after an interval, then the cycle repeats. What is causing this?

Let your unit cool down for an hour, give proper ventilation and air flow. keep away all the obstruction from the vent, the processor has a built in thermal sensor that might be trigger by peak temp on the main board.
Hope it may help you.
Have a nice day.
Thanks for using Fixya.

I have a Sony Bravia KDS-60A3000. I changed the lamp, plugged in the TV and it was working. Was trying to reset lamp indicator, power went off, red indicator light is blinking and cannot get TV to turn off...

I went to another tech site and saw a suggestion to unplug the TV for a couple hours and then plug back in to see if this helped, but they also indicated this could be a serious power problem. I was really concerned, but tried it and it worked! I think it was running some kind of diagnostics after the new lamp was placed. Back up and running!

First if you have had the set for at least two years, then its time for a new lamp. Replace your lamp and this should solve your problem. I don't know how long you have had ur television but lamps usually last about 6500 hours, thats a little less then 3years. But sometimes they go sooner. The lamp door should be located to the right of the unit on the side, if you are facing the television..

The STANDBY light will flash if the television detects an issue within the television. Some of these issues can be resolved simply by following the steps below to reset the television.
If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required . Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.
  1. Turn off the television. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  2. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  3. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: 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.
  4. Turn on the television.
