Question about Sony KDF-E60A20 60 in. LCD HDTV

Open Question

KDF-60x955 When I turn on the TV I get a flashing green light that turns red and the TV turns back off. I get a 5 flash strobe effect with the red standby light. I can't get any sound either. I have disconnected everything, cable, sat. receiver, and vidoe game and tried to reset to no avail.

A 5 blink error indicates a bad lamp driver. However a lamp may possibly cause this too. I suggest putting a new lamp in if you have one just to verify the lamp is not the problem. If it still fails with a new lamp then the lamp driver is the problem. This part should be replaced by a Sony authorized servicer. The lamp can be replaced easily by you. The lamp replacement instructions are in the TV's owners manual. Good Luck

The red light should be blinking a code. For example it will blink 4 times pause then 4 times pause or 5times pause 5 times pause, whatever the error might be. Let me know what it is and then we can help more.

SOURCE: standby light flashes 3 times

A 3 flash pattern indicates that either the lamp is not seated correctly or that the lamp door is not latched properly. It can also be a fault with the switches that sense whether the lamp is seated or the door is latched. Try reseating the lamp and relatching the lamp door

SOURCE: Sony KDF-E42A10 rear projection TV. Won't turn on.

Start by changing the lamp. If you got 5 years out of the old one, count your blessings, most folks only get three. The lamp is designed to be replaced by the consumer. Ebay will carry a replacement for you or you can get it directly from They've got good prices. The lamp door is on the back. Its really easy, give it a shot.

Probable lamp failure, lamp won't turn on leading to red light to come on. How many times does it flash? 3 means safety switch bad, 5 flashes means lamp or lamp ballast failing.

The tv Sony kdf-42we655 will not turn on, the light will flash green and make a humming sound but thats it, the light below that labeled "lamp" flashes red? Why is the tv not working properly and why is...

Your tv is a projection one - it uses a very powerful lamp/bulb to generate the light that used for the image. In your tv that bulb has died and must be replaced - it will cost about $200.

I try to turn it on but it just blinks on stand by

Probable Lamp. If lamp hasn't bown the red Lamp Lite won't flash but other lamp issues cause stby timer light to continue flashing. If stby red lite is flashing, count the no. of times flashing - could open thermal fuse (6X flashing)

The tv will turn on but no the screen wont. and

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.
