Projection lamp indicators

What are the indicators for a projection lamp failure? Ten months ago the green lamp indicator blinked a series of five times and then cycled through the six again -I thought it was an indication of a projection lamp but it turned out to be a board component failure. Now the green light starts blinking and then turns into a bright light. What are all of the indicators of a projection lamp failure? Thanks

Re: Projection lamp indicators

Maybe you have lost contact at the lamp circuit! check the CRT circuit and the lamp circuit!

5 indicates lamp ballast failure p/n 1-468-510-15 . but thats not always correct. sometimes the tv doesn't detect it correctly and it's just the lamp XL-2000U p/n A-1601-753-A .

When turning power on, nothing happens and then it blinks red five times in a row. KDS R50XBR1

The five blinks indicates a lamp driver failure. The lamp driver is commonly called a ballast. Odd thing is that these set rarely have ballast failure. But the microprocessor in your set thinks the ballast is defective and is rendering the five blink code.

Sony Grand Wega 60" indicator lamp blinks 5X green then 6 red

It is unusually to see BOTH of these flash codes together. I have never seen them at the same time. A 5 flash is a lamp driver error, which is possibly related to your lamp failure. You may have to replace the lamp driver or "ballast" to correct this problem. The 6 flash is a power supply problem and more serious, as it will likely take a technician to narrow down exactly where the fault lies. It may be a thermal fuse open OR a failure in the power supply itself. What was the original symptom that caused you to replace the lamp? Did you use an original Sony lamp as a replacement?
