    We have the same problem -- called Sony direct after repairman advised via phone the "bluetube" is shot and could not get. Sony said they would send a blue tube for $149. but cannot find repair person to install. Had 2nd repairman look at tv yesterday -$125.00 service fee and advised all 3 tubes are shot and it's a common problem. The cost of repair outweighs the value of the tv. Repairman said Sony is aware of problem and to contact them to see if they will compensate some of the cost -- waiting for a call back from them to see what they will do. This tv is only 3 1/2 years old.

Sony kdl52xbr9 it comes on i can see picture and sound for a couple of seconds, then it shuts off and blinks 6 times


Hi! and Welcome to Fixya!

Blinking red lights on the tv are error codes that explains hardware issues on the tv.

However, if after turning ON the tv and you will see the Sony logo on the screen before the picture goes off and then flashes red lights for a number of times, this could mean that tv can still be recovered. Try the option below to isolate possible issue with settings that cause your tv to shut off. Disconnect first all external devices from the tv

1. Turn ON tv first and wait until it flashes the red lights > press and hold down the UP Arrow button ( use remote control ) > while holding down the UP Arrow button, press the POWER button on the tv > tv turns off, wait until it turns on by itself > release the UP Arrow button when tv turns on

Note: reset is successful when you see a welcome screen on the tv and ask you to select your Language. This is the Initial Setup, just follow the on-screen instruction

If that solution did not resolve the issue then a service may be recquired.

Let me know if this helps!

Sony bravia kdl55hx729 3d led tv turns on 3 seconds shows picture than four red flashes


Hello,
the error light sequence that you are seeing is indicating a "backlight error". Most likely you have a bad inverter board -the board that powers up the back-lights behind the display panel. They might be available via ebay if you are a DIYer, or you need to call for sony service.
Good Luck!

TV turns itself off, then on automaticlly


The fan should run for a few minutes after shut off to cool the lamp down.

If I read and understand correctly somewhere in the cycle you are getting 5 red blinks? that is an error code........

Either you or I can Google the model number of the set with 5 blinks.....or visit the Sony site to see what it means.....

Green flashes then tv turns off


or a new lamp. you could first replace the lamp.
the screen might work fine for a couple of seconds, but then it fades away or deteriorates. This means the lamp is going bad.
