Hi
I managed to locate a manual for your TV and also a Support page on the Sony website which identified your problem clearly on two entries ie "The STAND BY indicator on the front of the projection television flashes three times" and "The STAND BY indicator on the projection television flashes 3 times". I thought this was going to be easy having found these, but both led to a page that said "This solution is no longer available". Thank you Sony !!!!
I didn't give up here found a YouTube video which described your "3 flashes" and stated that the bulb needed replacement if this was seen. I understand that the model is not exactly as yours but I give the link below:
How to replace TV lamp
Please look at it carefully because it looks as if - if this is correct - that you may have replaced one faulty bulb with another faulty bulb. Other than this I can't find anything very helpful on the internet.
Good Luck and best wishes

4 times blink error shows that any FAN is not running in TV as there are 4 fans in this TV.
Please check fan connectors and make sure all are plugged securely.

If standby light flash 3 times that means Lamp Cover is open or not fixed properly on its place.
Please make sure lamp cover is fixed securely.
Have you replaced its lamp recently?
Thanks.

Once we turn on the power, the power light blinks green 7 times and then blinks red 3 times. Aftern the pause 3 red blinks again. What type of problem is that? What parts do we need?


What I would suggest is go onto ebay and put in the model number of the t.v. and then the word lamp.
It should come back with the proper lamp replacement model numbers.

The blinking light is typical of a failed lamp and they last commonly between 2-5 years tops in these sets. You should replace the lamp. The link below is to the lamp for your set.

I replaced the lamp in my Sony E50A10 and the tv still doesn't power up.The indicator flashes red.Any ideas?


if its the lamp indicator flashing its an issue with the lamp. If the lamp is new I would double check to see if its making contact completely when its slid in often the pins can get bent slightly. If it were the ballast the power indicator would blink 5 times.

Hi, Our Sony Bravia TV model number KDF E50A11E is not working. There is a red blinking light flashes three times and then goes green and then red blinking again after about 3 seconds. Is this a bulb...


On that particular model I believe there is both a lamp indicator light and then the power indicator light. If it is lamp related the lamp indicator light (LED that looks like a sun in a cup...) would be on.

If the power indicator light is flashing red to green, that is a self diagnostic code, and you will have to contact an authorized Sony repair fascility for them to translate the problem. The error codes are not listed in the user manual, since most are not user serviceable.

Red Light Flashes twice KDF-E50A10


Are you putting the lamp cover back in place before trying to turn the set on? The 2 blink error is a temperature error you might want to check the thermal sensor, is your lamp door warped?
