    bought Sony tv kds-r50xbr1 2 years ago. Recently, it started turning itself off and then power/standby green light blinks for about 52 times and then turns itself on for about 2 min. Then it starts all over again. What kind of fan do I need and can I replace this myself?

    My Sony, same model tv has the same problem. It is more like 54 times it blinks, but that's because I counted as it is now doing it almost every five minutes. I replaced the bulb with a new one, original equipment bulb, and it still does the same thing. When it goes out, I have gone behind and verified both fans are still turning at the same speed as when the tv is working fine so I don't believe it is the fans.



    This is the model with the optical block problem. I had a new OB put in last year under the settlement lawsuit extended warranty. But now this new problem has occurred.



    Any ideas?

I too have a Sony KDS-R60XBR1 tv and the issue that you are experiencing is due to one of your fans in the rear of the tv is not working.  The tv automatically shuts off in protective mode.  Make sure the POWER/STANDBY light is blinking and not the lamp light below it.  Is the power/standby blinking 4 times in red? If, yes then its a fan that needs to be replaced.  If its the lamp light blinking then you need to replace the lamp.  The lamp is easy to replace by ordering the lamp either from Sony for $250 or find it cheaper for approx. $150 from other DLP sources and replace youself by following your manual.  I hope this helps you.

Power light flashed red 4 times then repeats no pic,new bulb/fan!


Check the fan that cools the bulb. It is directly behing the bulb. It should turn on when the power comes on. It apparently has a safety to protect your tv(and home). mine is in the process of going out. looking for online solutions as we speak.
