    KP-57WS510 on power up - Screen brightens up white with rainbow hues and a few colored arcs then shuts off with a series of 6 blinks on the red light.

    Examined all boards found no burns or hot spots other than a possible burn spot in the plastic cover over VB6001 on the G board

    Ordered G and D board from Sears for replacement but only G board came. They said they cannot get the D board. Now I see some people say it could be the A board. Should I just send back the G board and scrap the tv or is it worth pursuing. Seams like no one has the G board anymore. I don't want to install the D board and cook something on it.
    I also would like to know how to safely discharge the capacitors without hurting the rest of the components on the boards.

Tv won't turn on. It blinks green then red.

Question shows tv is Sony KDF-60WF655.
Green light blinks when tv gets prepare to fire up lamp, check internal circuits then show picture on front screen.
Red light blinking shows some kind of internal problem during circuit check and protection got activated upon some failure.
Count the red light blink as you will see 3 second long pause and post it here to diagnose what section of tv got problem.
Did you replaced its lamp in last 2-3 years?

Cant fix my sony KP-53S65

If the TV will not turn on and the red light blinks on the front of the set, it means that the microprocessor has detected a problem in the set and shut the set down. It then blinks the red light a certain number of times, and the number of blinks is the code for why the set has shut off. How many times does the red light blink before repeating?
