Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

The problem you have is a failed thermal sensor. Depending on how tech savvy you are you can replace it.They have changed the way the thermal sensor looks but it isnt too bad too put in. Any repair shop should also be able to do this for you.

Part number is 1-910-006-44 Themal Fuse Sony Part.

It is not a computer issue. It is a power issue with the monitor. A tiny capaciator needs to replaced which requires soldering.... better just buy a new monitor if not under warranty

Ok, the solution for all our problems is in fact the lamp. I finally replaced my lamp and no problems to report. Sony should do something about this because I know I didn't have 8,000 hours on the lamp and it sounds like no one else has either. I tell you what, I'm NEVER buying another Sony product ever again. Not only did I have this problem but I bought a Sony Blu-Ray disc dvd player and I've had nothing but problems out of it. I keep getting firmware updates for it but it doesn't help and recently I bought a Sony Walkman MP3 player and for no reason it quit working, it would power up and immediately power off. Sony did replace it though (but of course it was only $70 compared to the prices of the tv and dvd player).
Anyway, if you are still having problems with your tv, the lamp door is on the right side, pop it open and there will be another door with a knob on it. Turn that knob counter clockwise to unlock it and pull it out. Inside that door you will see the handle for the lamp, put your finger through the loop and pull up and out at the same time, to put in the new lamp, push lamp straight in until it won't go in any further and puch down, it should then be locked in place. Replace both inner door and outer door and you are good to go.
Someone mentioned something about cleaning the dust from around the lamp. I tried that before I got my new lamp. It only worked for a day and gave out again. Hope this helps.

Try performing a hard reset: remove the battery from the device while it is still powered on, leave it out for 30 seconds, then reinsert.

You definitely have a bad lamp. Sony rates the lamp life at between 4000 and 8000 hours. There are 3 things that effect the lamp life, listed in order of importance:
1) number of times the lamp is turned on and off. Every time the lamp is first fired, it takes life off the lamp. Customers I see that turn the TV on in the morning, leave it on all day and then turn it off on the evening can get up to 12000 lamp hours
2) ventilation. Be sure you have at least 6 inches of open space all the way around the set and that the vents are clear of dust and debris.
3) power. If the power is interrupted when the set is on, there cannot be a proper cool down cycle. The fans will run after you turn the set off to properly cool it down, if the power is lost this cannot happen. If your power is unreliable, buy a small UPS to let the set finish a cool down cycle

Occasionally a lamp will faill before the average lamp time due to being defective. from your purchase date it sounds like you got about average lamp time. Be sure to purchase AN ORIGINAL SONY LAMP as a replacement, becuase the aftermarket lamps are bad news, Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

Hi,
4 times red light blinking indicates problem with exhaust fan that is not running and tv shuts down instantly due to protection mode activation.

Blinking Green Light on Mitsubishi DLP 52525


The 52525 is definitely going to either:

1. have the caps on the FMT/DM board replaced (not something I'd recommend you do yourself)

2. have the electrical chassis rebuilt (as sometimes, you can replace the caps and still have the problem).


wait time: 4-8 weeks
cost to rebuild: $400-$500
cost for labor: $200-$400
