Re: No picture

Sony has a built-in set of error codes that help in determining what's wrong. Count the number of flashes before a slight pause and then it will repat the flashes over and over... A set of six flashes, pause and six more would indicate possibly Q8027 and D8021 possibly bad... Common problem with these sets
The most common "dead" problem in this unit is the "D" board which is Sony p/n# A-1348-038-A and costs about $185.00 dollars plus a core charge and shipping.
It would however help tremendously if we knew how many blinks it was putting out for the error code
Hope this helps.

This model was recalled by Panasonic-----massive recall. Start by having the lamp examined or tested---that is the place to begin.

Pioneer 65" TV Model # SD-643HD5 won't power up.

I would suggest replacing the board itself, chances are what caused those fuses to blow is still faulty. did you check those fuses again after you powered it back up?

Red light wont show picture

This is either a bad capacitor somewhere in the tv, or the very common power supply/high-voltage transformer.

MY problem with Sony KP-53S35 53 in. Rear Projection Television. When the TV powers on, the red light blinks until the picture comes on, then the red light blinks go off. I had to wait more than 5 minutes...

the number of flashes of the red indicator lamp points to the possible cause of the delay of the raster or picture, but usually it's an indicator of an emission unbalance between crt(picture tube) guns. the picture will take longer to show up as the emission on either of the picture tubes goes down.

New Sharp Aquos LC37X20E. After 30 mins turns itself off to standby and comes back on after 2-5mins (even though the automatic return to stanby has been set to "disable"). Eventually after...

According to Sharp it is a software problem. Engineer came, installed software update ,10 minute job.....TV worked fine for 1/2 day unfortunately: Then images turned black and white in all channels TV turned itself off, and stanby and OPC buttons started flashing. When TV came back on its own 10 mins later , screen had 2 large square staines superimposed in image (as if it was a burnt screen)...Engineer will be back next week...all quite sad really for a new TV.....will keep u posted
