Sony WEGA TV KDFe55a20. Just replaced lamp. Now TV wont turn on. Blinks red 3 times. Manual says lamp door open, but door is closed and secure. What could be the problem? Does the outer panel have to be on for the TV to turn on?

There is a micro switch in the side of the outer panel. check it wheather is it working or not. than securely place the panel such that the panel must be in contact with the switch. now try it. if not, than check the lamp switch.

Tv will shut off and red light will flash 3 times


If its Sony KDF-42WE655 TV that goes to standby and LED blinks 3 times then check Lamp Door that seems not fixed properly.
That happens when lamp replaced in TV.
If its different model number TV, let me know exact model number.

Tv went off while watching a program power standby red light blinks 6 times then pauses then repeats tried unplugging unit waiting a few minutes then replugged same results nothing. can anyone help me ?...


Here's an excerpt from the Sony Manual online. And the link - http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/webtree.pl?template=EN&mdl=KDF55XS955&content_id=68&category_id=11&problem_id=52

The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes three times
If your power/standby indicator is flashing in a pattern of three flashes, this may indicates that the lamp cover is not attached securely. Follow the directions in the Operating Manual under changing your lamp that related to closing and securing the Lamp Cover. Ensure that the Lamp Cover Door is securely fastened by tightening each screw.

The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes continously
If your power/standby indicator is flashing continuously, and the lamp cover has been secured, your TV may be in need of service.

The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up green (not flashing)
A sustained green light indicates your TV is on.

The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up red (not flashing)
A sustained red light from your power/standby indicator simply indicates that your TV is in standby mode. This shows you that your TV is ready to be turned on with the remote.

Is it the power light and not the lamp light? If the lamp light is flashing then replace the lamp.
