Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My 73in Sony TV shuts off by itself every 10-15 mins and there's blinking. Then it turns back on and repeats. About a week ago I installed a brand new bulb. Could it be the bulb assembly or what? Please help!

Hello,
that sounds like the control board is overheating and the graphic chip is getting fault and keeps shutting down.Or the power supply as a bad capacitor, and that can do the same thing .
Thanks

SOURCE: Sony kds-r50xbr1 turns itself off and then green light blinks 52

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.

SOURCE: TV shuts itself off after a couple minutes of being on.

One must be very careful of the quality of the replacement lamp. Many of the cheap 'deals' on the web for replacement lamps are substandard. I always recommend that replacement bulbs be the original manufacturers bulb.

SONY IS INVOLVED IN A CLASS ACTION SUITE-problem is a bad light engine-check into this on the web-check your model number to see what they are willing to do.
IT IS A COSTLY REPAIR IF YOU HAVE TO PAY A TECHNICIAN

SOURCE: 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.

13 times blinks denotes a short circuit inside the horizontal output stage circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get more details about blinking codes to Sony TVs, check the site linked here. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Sounds like a heat problem. Check to make sure that if it has a internal fan that it is working, and clean any dust build up, most projection tv's have fans, usually the number of flashes indicate a code that repeats.

Tv cuts off and green light flashes


If your set was manufactured around July 2005, you may need a firmware upgrade to solve this issue. On the Sony website you can enter your model # and serial # to see if you TV is affected. If so, it is easy to have done and may be free from Sony. It sounds like the issue they described in the writeup on the required formware update. I had mine done within few months of when i bought it (purchased in Dec 2005) and it has been working flawlessly since.

Good luck!

Yup, it seems a lamp problem can give a blinking green light over the 10 times (1 - 10 times for diagnostic codes), but in my case rather than replace the bulb if it works for a minute then resets with the green light blinking, do what I did.
Take the lamp out and inspect it, it has breather screens top and bottom, if it cant breath because there clogged with dust, clean them, and you can remove the screens, use q-tips and clean the inside. I saved the cost of a lamp and it's working fine!
