It is important to count the number of red flashes, if it is 5 then the lamp ballast board has failed, (part #1-468-798-14) if it is 4 then the optical block fan (# 178706511) is probably to blame, if it is 6 then the thermal fuse has gone bad..(# a1137954a)

Tv wont turn on

I have no clue who makes your TV or the model so I can't really help you. Count how many times it flashes and start googling for the answer. Include all the info you can next time.

The TV will not turn on. When the switch at the lower left corner is pressed the light in the switch flashs green for about 4 seconds as the TV seems to go through a start up procedure. Then the light...

The red flashing light is the service code. My guess is the power supply is bad now, but it could be something else. If the TV is under warranty, take it in and get if fixed. If it is not, then you may try to check the power supply first. Count the flashes of the red light and check online for the issues when this model flashes, 4 times or 6 times... or 9 times, etc.

Good luck!

Flashing red light

I think this sounds like my problem (need to replace the projector lamp). However, when I hit the "on" button, my SXRD 50" blinks green for about a minute then starts blinking red. Can you confirm the bulb solution? I was very pleased with this sight when my fan malfunctioned. I got the fan in a matter of day's from Sony and it fixed that problem.
