Check the fan that cools the bulb. It is directly behing the bulb. It should turn on when the power comes on. It apparently has a safety to protect your tv(and home). mine is in the process of going out. looking for online solutions as we speak.

Sony KDS-R50XBR1 /(2005) Red stand-by light blinks 4 times.Tried new bulb (Philips) 1 week ago ,same problem as before .Whole new light engine replaced two yrs ago by sony.What happens is it will turn off...


The error code of 4 blinks indicate a fan problem.the fan is slowing or internitantly stoping. the fan is stallling. or the fans not getting power. Always rember anything that moves will eventally stop. this fan is on all the time. also there more than one fan. Listen closely to hear the fan. The fan is not difficult or exspensive repair.

The lamp LED blinks 4 times and repeats, I replaced the lamp but the lamp led is still blinking 4 times and repeats and I have no picture


Hi,
4 times blinking light indicates problem with exhaust fan in KDS-R50XBR1 and possible causes are as follows:
-Fan 1-4 power is not supplied. (ASU board)
-Fan connector is not attached securely.
-Fan caught wires or harnesses.
Please check exhaust fan in tv, it is located at lower right of tv looking at rear of tv.
Thanks.

Sony kds-r50xbr1 turns itself off and then green light blinks 52


I too have a Sony KDS-R60XBR1 tv and the issue that you are experiencing is due to one of your fans in the rear of the tv is not working.  The tv automatically shuts off in protective mode.  Make sure the POWER/STANDBY light is blinking and not the lamp light below it.  Is the power/standby blinking 4 times in red? If, yes then its a fan that needs to be replaced.  If its the lamp light blinking then you need to replace the lamp.  The lamp is easy to replace by ordering the lamp either from Sony for $250 or find it cheaper for approx. $150 from other DLP sources and replace youself by following your manual.  I hope this helps you.

My sony sxrd projection tv wont turn on


From what I've been able to find, the problem is the fan that cools the bulb is not starting when you turn the tv on. Blow on it to get it going or clean with compressed air. The fan could be clogged up with lint etc. It's on the rear left of the tv.

TV will not power on 4 red blinks


I found the following suggestion on avsforum.com and it worked perfectly (going through the lamp door).

I'm a longtime lurker not much of a poster, but this happened to me to yesterday. I used civicsixxx's advice and this works. However you don't have to take anything apart. All I did was take out the lamp then put your hand in carefully to the right and you'l feel the fan just give it a spin and plug back in the light and the TV your good to go. Hope this helps.
