Sony KDS R50XBR1. No picture, no sound

3 year old Sony KDS R50XBR1. 6 months ago optical block replaced. Now suddenly, no picture, no sound, nothing. When turned on, green power light flashes for 1 1/2 minutes twice a second then turns red. It then flashes continuously once a second. No pauses, no pattern, no code just continuous flashes until the remote power key is pressed. Then it goes back to green and if pressed again, power goes off. What do I do.

After 11 years???? OMG This set is a tired pup and should be put to reast. My experience with older sets and your complains are all capacitor problems and is only gonna get worse as the first time around repair will take several capacitors to repair. This set has no user serviceable parts inside so you should not attempt a repair suchj as this on your own.. This repair if you decide to go through the first time will be About 300 to 600 bucks the first time and cost will continue to raise till the sets put to sleep. Good luck

SOURCE: Flashing Green Light on Front of 73" Projection TV

on the signal board replace the caps by the 5/9 volt regulators. c2p04 is the main culprit. 6 caps in total can be changed. I believe c2p05 also.

SOURCE: We recently experienced a power outage, but once

The blinking green light is the DM unit in the set booting up like a computer.

Several things can happen here--Research by model number with GOOGLE, model number and problems.

It is often called the blinking green light of death.

The most common problem is 4 filter caps in power supply (they run 7/24 and supply voltage to DM unit fail--also some fuses there.

If you look on the net you will find places that sell kit for this repair.

This is also one of a group of several Mitsubishi sets with this kind of problem--It is not the Lamp!

Some of these models develop so many problems Mitsubishi now sells a chassis replacement--includes power and several boards that develop bad caps.

Understand: Mitsubishi has a long history of caps failing in their sets, it goes back almost 30 years. I have seen older ones where over 20 filter caps were bad.

You can talk to Mitsubishi to see if chassis replacement is available for your set--this came about as a result of the threat of hundreds of people entering a class action lawsuit (several).

If this told you something you did not know rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

If you have questions make a "comment" here and I will assist you.

Sony KDS-R50XBR1 optical engine problem


Sony TVs has an Optical Block issue. If there is an issue with the optical block, then there will be green, blue patches or tint on the TV display. Try resetting the TV to the factory settings and try Power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue still persists, then TV may require service. You can contact the Customer relations team and check for the available options. Sony had repaired free of cost for such issues. Hence, contact the customer relations.

Sony KDS-R50xbr1 50" Problems


Here's the best way to get Sony's and/or the extended warranty company's attention and possible help.

Send an old fashioned letter to Sony and your extended warranty provider outlining the problems and your concerns regarding your TV. Make sure to prominently indicate that a copy of the letter is being sent to the complaint division at the attorney general's office in your state. After having to settle claims surrounding their optical block (light engine) issues Sony now understands that failure to address their customer's complaints may result in another judgement against them.

Good luck and give 'em hell!

WEGA only show yellow


Hello watts74:

When you turn your tv on, you still get an image of whatever channel you are on, but the background on the entire screen is green/yellow, correct? If so, the problem is the optical block. Read what I posted below on another thread and you should be on your way to getting your situation resolved.

Here is the link to the other thread I mentioned: http://www.fixya.com/support/t157434-green

All the best...

If your SONY KDS-R50XBR1 or KDS-R60XBR1 color screen suddenly turns green, the optical block (aka light engine) is the culprit. Don't fret because as "Leadtech" has already posted back on Jul 04, 2007, SONY is aware of this problem and has extended the warranty to replace this very part. Additionally, and aside from the class action lawsuit currently pending in district court, parts and labor for in-house service IS included.

SONY states the warranty as follows:

"As part of the Sony commitment to quality, Sony is announcing that it is extending the limited warranty (parts and labor), in the United States, on the optical block of KDS-R50XBR1 and KDS-R60XBR1 model SXRD televisions until October 31, 2008, regardless of purchase date."

So all you have to do is:

1) Contact SONY Customer Service at (800) 222-7669 or (888) 772-7669 - Hours: Mon-Fri 9:00AM-10:00PM / Sat-Sun 10:30AM-7:15PM EST

2) Provide them with your model (as above) and your television's serial number

3) Tell them your screen color is nothing but green

4) They will provide you with a case number

5) They will ask you for your zip code and provide you with one or more SONY authorized service dealers, and their contact information.

6) You contact the dealer of your choice and schedule an in-house service. Explain to them that your screen is green and you are aware that many, same tv-model owners that have had this same problem, and that the optical block is the problem.

7) The SONY authorized dealer you speak with will schedule and appointment with you, and will provide in-house service.

Regarding the service, it will take about an hour to complete. Not that it is complicated for the technician, but where the optical block is located is that is time-consuming. It sits just "behind" the bottom of the tv screen and in order to get to it, the technician will have to:

1) Remove the bottom back gray cover

2) Remove the replaceable projection lamp located on the left side of the tv (looking from the back)

3) Remove lots of phillips screws

4) Disconnect many plugs

5) Remove 3 chassis closest to the back of the tv before getting to the optical block chassis, which is located up front, just behind the tv screen

Once the optical block is replaced, you will be amazed on correct color results.

Hope this helps...
