Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XBR950 60" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Red light blinks 3 times

Tv was 1 year old and we were told the bulb was the problem. technichian changed out the bulb.  It worked for a day or so then went out from time to time.  It stopped being tempermental all by itself and 1 year later same problem is back.  Repair at the stores tell us it is the bulb again. Bought a replacement bulb.  Put it in: doesn't work.  we took a hair dryer (No heat) to blow any dust out.  Still nothing. Help.  This is getting very expensive for a TV only 2 years old.

Re: red light blinks 3 times

When the senior service tech changed our bulb, I watched very carefully, and he said there is an electrical contact towards the rear of where the bulb goes in that bends very easily and that care is required not to damage or bend that connector. His assistant tech then bent the thing, and the senior tech had to straighten it out properly. All the while, he talked about how delicate this connector is. Hope this is helpful to you. It sounds like what he was talking about.

I have a 4 year old Sony KDF-E42A10 television - the power/standby light blinks red 5 times, pauses, blinks red 5 times again, etc. I have replaced the lamp previously when the light was blinking red 3...

Hi there,
5 blinks means there is a problem with the video board. It could be as simple as unplugging everything, includding power. Wait 3 minutes then plug power only back in. Or it may be a damaged component that requires replacing.
Hope this helps

If red light blinks 3 times when tv refuse to power up then check lamp cover that was removed to replace lamp, make sure lamp cover is fixed in its position securely and screw is tight.
Let me know how many times red light is blinking after three second long pause IF it is not blinking 3 times.

I try to turn my Sony Wega 42" Rear projection lcd tv on , but the power light goes once to green then blinks 3 times in a row, for a number of times before it just goes to red, when it shuts off...

I am posting here because I read the response the other person gave you.

Are you saying the set does not turn on and the red light blinks a sequence of three red blinks several times?

Confirm actual model number---3 red blinks is an error code---Get me Model number (KF50WE610?) and I will try to give you a simple answer---If it is what I think it is---3 blinks may have a easy repair that anyone can do.

Sony LCD projection TV - bulb problem

Hi! sweet123,

Please answer this question. Were the 4 bulbs visabley bad; say broken or did they have a milkey look, or broken wire inside? In other words did the bulbs you replaced look as good as a new unused bulb? Please reply.
