The red light means that the projector lamp needs to be replaced. On my KDF E42 A 10. it is loctated inside the acsess door located on the lower right side. You can google the owner's manual. BE FORE WARNED - Sony made and sold these with a latent inherrint defect that the optic block distorts after about two years. Sony has chosen not to acknowlege the problem. They have lost one class action suit on the earlier models and I am about to start one on my model.

Hi, disconnect the power supply for few minutes, say 5 minutes and then turn it ON. Check, if that helps. If not kindly revert with more details :-

1. Which light is flashing?
2. Is there any message like ' CL ' or anything you could see?
3. How old the machine is?
4. Is there any sequence in blinks like 7 blinks then pause and then 7 blinks?

Let me know,so that i could provide you with more accurate diagnosis.

My connection was working fine and then went out. When I went and checked on the router, the router light was blinking orange and it will not connect to the internet. Did a power cycle on the router and on...

OK, my all you have to do to get your router to revert to default settings is to do a hard reset, there is a pin sized hole on the back of most routers, just stick a pin down this hole and hold it down for 5 to 10 seconds whilst the power is on to get it to reset, from there go into the management console via browser and do the settings again from there, dont forget to set up security for wireless or you will be running an open wireless hotspot for all your neighbors and passersby, lol, Hope this Helps...

I recently received an x530 from a neighbor, and it didnt work.

You say that the lens moves a little, this is the case when required power is not sufficient,.
Remove the battery, clean the battery connecting terminals, recharge the battery and try it.

Will not turn on. Red blinking light on bottom front


Thanks for using FixYa. If the TV isn't turning itself and the light is blinking, means the fault protection circuit has detected a fault and has turned down the TV. You'll need to check various things to find an answer which part is bad. Please check these---

1. Check for signal cables at the back and also try unplugging the TV for 8-10 hours to reset it.

2. Swollen /bulged capacitors on the power supply board-- This happens due to overheating of capacitors.

3. If the capacitors are fine then you'll need to check for connectors on all the boards and also the fans if they are working fine.

4. Make sure the lamp connections are fine and ballast is not burnt.

Note-- Please make sure to turn off and unplug the TV for at least 1 hour (this will drain off current from all components especially capacitors) before you perform any repairs. Also note that the TV consists of very high voltages even when it is in OFF condition, so please be careful.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

try holding down the reset button which should be behind or under the router for 30 seconds, still holding down the reset button turn the power off for 30 seconds, still hoding the reset button wait more 30 seconds. After that your router should be in the way it came.

Samsung Model #HRS5065w

Working on the same problem. My neighbor and I have the same model of Samsung DLP TV. After 3 years, his begin to turn off after a short period of use. He replaced the lamp, but the problem continued. He took it to a repar shop and they said circuit board, yada yada yada, 800 bucks. He bought a new TV for a grand. I have his old TV in my garage for parts, and low and behold, out in the garage where it is cooler and the TV is not in a cabinet, it works just fine. I think the problem is one of overheating. My suggestion is to move the TV to a place where is has plenty of air circulation and see what happens.

Ethernet light blinking

ok this sounds easy
heres your problem you
DsL is a glorified phone connection its not smooth and is always in a state of flaux along with your neighbors there neighbors so on and so forth
technecoly i would run cable connection that does not flaux with neighbors always have a strong signal and wont interfere with your videos
DsL is slow as 58 bit data fax modem i found it a waist of money and time waiting for system to play catch up
now if you want to play videos with out interupt turn off cable dsl modem this will bring function back to normal in video mode
your comps fine its just your service provider
