Question about Sony KV-36FV26 TV
Power light comes on green, pic & audio comes on for 10 seconds, screen goes black, power light remains on, tv comes back on after 20 seconds, repeats process. Turn unit off and on - power light blinks red 5 time interval, hit "on" again, power light turns green, tv comes on & goes off as above. Picture very dull-almost looks blacks & grays, audio good. On Sony Blink Code explanations it states 5 red blinks is associated with the AKB circuit, but repairman tells me this is if tv has picture tube (ours doesn't). Done a lot of research, can this be the projection lamp needs replaced? Manual says there's a light that indicates when lamp needs replaced, but it isn't blinking, only power light. It looks like we can replace it ourselves - if so, should we buy one with the housing or just the bulb? Finding them on line for approx. $115-$150, Serviceman wants $200 for bulb & $200 labor! Help!!! thanks so much for your expertise! Dana
Symptom shows Lamp is weak in result and causing restart of TV again and again. Your TV requires new lamp as per following part number...
A1085447A* LAMP BLOCK ASSY XL-2200U
It is available in Sony Accessories Store for $200 and replacement procedure is written in instruction manual of TV.
Always buy Sony original lamp for TV and avoid aftermarket / cheap lamp for TV safety.

My Sony KDF-E55A20 stopped working abruptly a few nights ago. It is almost 5 years old and now when I try to turn it on nothing actually comes on, not even the fans the only thing that happens is the power light blinks green 5 times. I have read online that 5 red blinks on the power light means that the lamp has failed, so I ordered a new lamp and replaced it. However, this did not change anything. The power light still only blinks green 5 times and then nothing else happens. Does anyone have any insight as to what the problem could be. Thanks.
