Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF50WE610 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Sony grand wega kf-50we610 red lamp light blinking

Tv made a sound, not popping, but loud. Hard to describe, then went out no pic. or sound about an hour later while watching it. Replaced lamp almost 2 years to the day ago. Took the lamp out & chkd. the plastic case was cracked, otherwise the lamp looked fine. Alot of dust in the area around the case, cleaned it out but can't locate the air filter, or how to get to fans. TV has always made VERY LOUD popping sounds, but we can hear fans. Don't know if all the fans are running though. Don't know if the cracked case is a sign of over heating. Any help would be appreciated.

The red light means that the prjection bulb needs to be replaced. They ony last about two years depending on hours of use. The low popping sounds as well as fan noise is normal for the Sony projection TV. You can Google the owners manual by entering the brand,model etc. and ask for the owner's manual. I had to go to several sites but eventually found it.

3 times standby red light blinking shows that lamp cover has not been placed back properly after lamp replacement.

Sony KF-50WE610 Tv won't turn on, red light blinks 6 times


3 times means Lamp and 6 means you have lost a voltage. You may have a thermal fuse blown.
This set has a common trouble with overheating caused by the drum fan located on top of the lamp housing clogged up with dust. When the lamp is getting old it runs hotter and that combined with the fan being clogged the thermal fuse blows. You must replace the lamp and thermal fuse. You must also clean out or replace the lamp fan. This drum type fan should be cleaned out every year or two depending on the environment.

Sony kf-60we610 stand by blinks 5 times


Hey there,
I've had my Sony KF-50WE610 for approx. 4years now and have just experienced the prob you described (though I didn't think to count the number of red blinks). I called Sony TV technical support (888-772-7669, #3 for TV/digital cameras, #1 for TV, then #1 again I think). They said that if the power/standby light blinks 5x, that means there's something wrong with the lamp driver and service will be required. Needless to say, I better go home and count my red blinks! Good luck, I hope this helps a bit. Have a happy and safe holiday!
