SOURCE: Won't turn on.

My Sony KDP is blinking 6 times. My guess is the blinking is a troubleshooting code. We just need to located the chart to describe the blinks.

SOURCE: Power Button Blinking Red

The number of blinks, called error codes, is crucial in determining what's wrong with your unit.. In this case the color wheel is faulty and needs to be replaced. In that unit the color wheel assembly is Panasonic p/n# TXFEN01RP4S and is available from many sources for about $390.00 plus shipping.
There are some companies like Tri-State-Module that have taken-up rebuilding color wheel assemblies but I can't be certain that this is one of the brand/models they support. If you can have it rebuilt you might save about half the price of a new one...
For your edification in the future here are the blink codes for your Tv:
1 | Load Shortage
2 | Over Volage
3 | Fan Sos
4 | Main 3.3v
5 | Lamp Disable
6 | Gc3fm-Iic
7 | Gc3fs-Iic
8 | Gc3i-Iic
9 | Color Wheel Stop

If I can help any other way just let me know...
Good Luck!

im thinking you blew the chips again, i would use sanyo chips from mcm not cheap ones
This is a list of most of the commonly used STK devices and some that Sanyo made that are rarely, if ever, used. I will add links to the data sheets that I have, but some of them are not available. Some of the chips are versions made for a particular TV manufacturer, and Sanyo does not provide data on those, typically. It is generally best to use the same chip that is found in the set. However, there have been newer versions of some of these produced that are identical in performance and superior in certain applications. I will note my recommendations and the logic behind them, but I in no way, nor does HTS, take any responsibility for the accuracy of the information with regard to substitution of parts. Any substitution is your responsibility. I can only relate what I have found to work with parts that I know to be original Sanyo parts.

STK4273 replace with STK4274 if heat sink allows


STK392-010 replace with STK392-040
STK392-020 replace with STK392-040
***The -040 has wider bandwidth and has higher current rating than the -010 and -020. I use in ALL cases to replace the older versions.


STK392-110 replace with STK394-160
STK392-120 Hitachi replaces these with STK394-160, for other sets it may not be a good sub. They have been fine in the Philips sets so far.
STK392-150 replace with STK394-160
***The 394 series replaced the 392 series and is cooler running. The subs listed here are the ones that I know to work in most sets.



STK394-160 (This is my choice to replace the STK392-110, -120, & -150 in most sets and are available in the Hitachi kits in the next post)

-L means bent pins for horizontal mounting
-E means lead free
-HIC in Mitsubishi parts simply means that it is an IC on a heat sink and is irrelevant to buying parts.

I have an iphone A1303 and its charging and it shows the apple logo but its failing to turn on how can i fix that problem?

I don't know answer but one time, the screen contrast on my phone turned itself way down so I thought it would not turn on. Fixed it by going to settings - display & brightness and turned it up. Maybe your phone has same problem.

Have you called your phone carrier? Seems like they should be able to help.

Colors will not converge on my RCA SRS Focus, model D52130. When I make an attempt to automatically converge, it says to reduce the light in the room. We even covered up the screen with a blanket at...

Projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both. Repair kits with instructions are also avail from

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

When viewing images on the LCD display ,pictures with White or bright parts to the image the display flashes between White and black is this a setting issue .the camera is a Dx 40x

You're seeing blown-out highlights. These are the portions of your picture that have been so overexposed that they've gone pure white, losing all detail. This is generally considered a bad thing and so the camera is warning you of that. Of course, the camera doesn't know what kind of effect you're trying for and thus it's just a warning. The correct fix in most cases is to use exposure compensation to reduce the exposure and bring back the details. This risks losing details in the shadows as they go pure black but that's not considered as bad. After all, we don't really expect to see much detail in the dark.

That was the long answer. The short answer is, repeatedly press up/down on the multiselector to cycle through the different views of your pictures.

Screen is too bright, can't fix it


For some nokia mobiles you cannot reduce the brightness of the screen. They have the default brightness settings only.

You're seeing blown-out highlights. These are the portions of your pictures where you've lost all detail due to overexposure. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but usually is. The correct fix in most cases is to reduce exposure and shoot again.

That was the long answer. The short answer is to press up/down repeatedely on the multiselector to cycle through the different views of your photo until you find the one you want.

My sanyo does not work

"Fix it."
This is what you posted as a solution to my problem.
Is this how you fixed your tv problem?
I'm guessing not since you posted your problem here. Your problem sounds like a broken tv, mine is a simple setting in the video menu.
This is a stupid answer and a waste of time. Don't post a bogus solution mongoloid.

Dark shadows similar to fingers of thunderstorm cloud have appeared on the display and worsened over time. They are fixed in position. Is there a fix? Is it time to replace our 2 1/2 year old Protron?

Not fixed but bearable by increasing brightness. I'll live with it until it gets worse then, probably, replace the unit. One other symptom for anyone interested is a dip in the top edge of the display just above the area of thunder cloud finger.
