    This is the second time I've had this happen with this TV. The first time it was still under warranty. We had a storm and our surge protector was faulty (or so we thought). We had a planned power outage today for our neighborhood so I took my sons out to run some errands....everything was turned off before we left. We got home and I went to turn on the TV and got the red flashing light. I tried shutting the surge protector off and turning it back on but still got the same result (this is a new surge protector...not the same one it was plugged into the last time this happened). The TV is not under warranty any more so I was curious about fixing the TV or how much some one thinks it may be to have it fixed....should we just invest in a new TV since this is the 2nd time this has happened with this one?

Yep, its a gonner. If you want to fix it yourself you can save several hundred bucks, but it will still cost you about $400 to do yourself, depending on the problem of course. This set and its samsung counterpart are horribly plagued by faulty ysus buffers. If you wan't to try and fix it, comment again and I'll walk you through the diagnosis process. Its a bit lengthy, I'll prewarn you.

Replace the lamp would be the first thing to try. Lamp door switch on this model is notorious for going bad. If you replace lamp and still won't turn on jumper door switch. If you take off back you can see switch board.

Sony WEGA LCD TV Model KFE50A10 wont turn on


It turns out that the number of red lights flashing, relates to a partiuclar error problem. My TV was flashing 4 red lights, pausing , then flashing again etc etc. This particular error meant that one of the five fans within the TV box had stopped funtioning. So the TV has gone to the repairman today. I was advised by an operator at the SONY STYLE CENTRE that such a repair would be considered as a genuine fault and that SONY would pick up the tab. I live in hope
