Please use the "Continue With This Expert" option and confirm the model # of your TV if it is not as listed above.

6 red flashes for sony WEGA Rear projection indicates the following....

A 6 flash shutdown on this set is a low B+ shutdown, usually caused by an open thermal fuse. The fuse is a small black plastic device mounted right above or just below the lamp. It usually fails when the fans become clogged with dust, especially the squirrel cage or sirocco fan mounted on the optical block and used to cool the lamp.
There is a Thermal fuse that has blown. Simply replacing the fuse may not clear up the issue... as it may blow again if there is a large dust build-up or a faulty cooling fan.

There is no way to tell if the fuse is blown by looking at it. It is a small black plastic device, maybe 1/8 of an inch square. The only way to tell if it is blown is to measure the resistance of the fuse. High resistance or infinite resistance means the fuse is blown, low resistance (under 1 ohm) and the fuse is good.
The fuse is only accesible by removing the back panel and further removing the optical block from the set.
If you are willing to open up the set - and have the knowledge to discharge the stored electricity - go for it.

The cost to repair is mostly labor. I would estimate between $250 - $350 in labor. The part is cheap, no more than $20. Please PLEASE disregard any writing you see on the net regarding just disconnecting the old thermal fuse and plugging in the new one without removing the old fuse and properly remounting the new fuse. This is a safety component and if you do it the way I have seen some people suggest, I would make sure your fire insurance coverage is good. If you wanted to do this yourself, the proper way is to remove the optical block from the set so that the old fuse can be removed and the new one installed AND the fan can be taken off and cleaned to prevent a recurrence. The first thing I would suggest is to get a service manual as it has good instructions for taking the set apart.
You could have a power supply problem causing the 6 flash shutdown, but that is rare on these sets.

We never suggest opening up a TV for first timers - as there are potentially lethal amounts of stored energy that need to be properly discharged before attempting repairs.

Thanks for using FixYa.
Good Luck!!

    It's definately the thermal fuse that has failed.

    It's located under the lamp. (Inside front center of the TV accessed from the back) The
    fuse itself is circular with a flange that is used to screw it to the bottom of
    the TV.

    Two wires connected to the fuse go back to a two pin microplug connected
    near a wire harness easily accessable at the back of the TV. Grey and white wires going to it.

    The fuse is about $8 clean out the cooling fan and you're good to go!!

    Visit to order a replacement - or just about any repair shop would have them laying around.

    Take out the old one - and take it in with you. (pretty sure the part # is 1-910-006-44 or 1-910-023-93 )

    If you are apprehensive - this site offers step by step instructions and a copy of the TSB for $12 so you can do it yourself.

    If you are satisfied with this answer, please rate as FixYa - so the award is distributed to my account - as if you reply - I have only 4 hours to answer - or the question goes back out into the general queue pool - and I'm headed to bed :D

    Thanks again for using FixYa!!

    Good Luck!

Sony tv wont turn on, standby light just flashes

check for an open resistor on the power supply, it is actually a fusible resistor, (white) if open, then check the converter, some sets have two separate and some have it as one. it will be on a heat sink on the power supply. if shorted then check for a shorted horizontal output transistor and repair cold solder joints on the horizintal drive transformer which is the real cause of this problem

Standby Red Light Flashing

six flashes corresponds to "Horizontal deflection stop". In turn the "supposed malfunction" is then either Q5013 (H OUT) is broken and/or IC507 (H Jungle) is broken.
however i would check
Video out, IC7101, 7201, 7301 and others in C board circuit.
Q510, 516, 524 (A board).

There are actually three C boards, the CR, CG and CB boards. They are attached to the rear of the red, green and blue CRTs, respectively. I wouldnt attempt to repair the set myself. I would solicite the services of an authorized Sony servicenter.

I own a Sony T.V. model #KV36HS510, Serial # 9024184,Event# E36002407 and it"s aTrinitron brand name. Like the problems before no picture or sound, stand by light on front of unit flashes. When trying to turn it back on you can hear the power click, like it wants to turn on, but does not.
