The power/standby indicator is flashing a red light and my tv will not turn on.


Hi,
Flashing of the led light indicates an error code, count how many times it will blink to determine where the fault came from.

I have a 55" sony


According to the manual (you can see it here) page 122 that describes 3 red flashing lights:

"The lamp cover is not attached securely. When you secure the lamp cover, the POWER / STANDBY light flashes in red and the LCD projection TV enters the standby mode (see page22)"

Page 22 says:

"... if the POWER / STANDBY light flashes continuously, this may indicate the display unit needs servicing..."


Most DLP displays make use of a "color wheel". These small motors spin at many thousands of RPM. They often begin to make scratching sounds when they are beginning to fail. Some manufacturers make it difficult to change yourself - and others make it pretty easy.

I hope this was at least a good starting point for you & good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

TV keeps turning itself off on its own and flashing the red LED 6 times


see the owners manual. If the tv is a DLP the lamp is out or it has a cooling problem. the light engine must be replaced by a factory service tech. not a doit yourself fix. Sorry hope i'm wrong.

Changed lamp and TV won't turn on, power light flashes 3 times


Hi,
Red light blinking 3 times shows problem with lamp cover.
Lamp cover is not fixed securely in your tv after lamp replacement. Lamp cover is first thing that was removed to replace lamp, check lamp cover and make sure its back in place properly.
Thanks.

Sony wega kdf42we655 won't turn on...green light blinks, faint whirring sound, (fan?),then nothing...red blinking


Did you notice if the screen has been recently going darker if so the lamp has gone.You can check it by removing the lamp and looking at it you will see a grey smoked area or even the lamp mount broken inside the lamp.
