1 Answer

PT54DL50 Woke up truned on no picture power button blinlking 3 red blinks? replaced lamp....needed it anyway. Stilll 3 red blinks? Help Chip I have the same problem.........was working great, turned off for the night, next day turned on, and all I get is the red LED flashes 3 times, stops for 60 seconds or so then flashes 3 times, continues this cycle over & over. I unplug the TV for a while (LED stops flashing), then plug it in, turn it on and the green light comes on like a normal startup, then it reverts to the 3 flashing LED cycle again. The user manual (for flashing red LED) says call service center, but I live in Hawaii, and the closest service department is on another island. Help!!!!

MOST LIKELY problem is the convergence amps but.....
It might be your vertical or horizontal circuit...those initiate a 3 blink failure code too....

Sony LCD KF-50WE610 no picture-red light blinking

3 times standby red light blinking shows that lamp cover has not been placed back properly after lamp replacement.
Make sure lamp cover, (the first thing that you removed to replace lamp in tv) is fixed securely then turn tv On.

No picture and the power light blinks

A red blinking light could mean that the lamp timer is at it's limit and it is time to change the lamp. You will also have to reset the lamp timer by pushing and holding down 2-3 buttons on the tv or remote. Refer to your user guide for the proper way to reset and or change your lamp.

Status Light Flashes Red

first did you getthe lamp from miths and if notyou could have bought a bad lamp. you need to get a lamp form mits if you did not buy from them. if you did buy from mits have them replace the lamp it has a 90 day warranty. try hitting the menu and device / input buttons for 5 sec and repost the blink code. it is a 2 digits blink code. (ex. 23 or 33 or 26 like that)

Sony wega problem look like im not the only one!

This sounds like your lamp failed and opened you thermal fuse. 6 blinks is open thermal fuse and that would normally only open if your lamp failed. Replacing the lamp is simple, but the thermal fuse is a very difficult repair with considerable disassembly.

Kds55a2000 red light flashing

The SONY Owner's Manual for the KDS55A2000 does not state what the 4 times blinking Power LED means.

However, my Sony Extended Care Service support insists that the projection lamp is the cause for the 4X blinking LED
Power light.
I do not agree but am forced to buy a replacement lamp (not cheap) to prove that the problem is probably the fan, as the TV Technician states elsewhere in these FixYa support questions and answer

There is a problem in your 3.3v main line and until corrected it will not power the lamp. This isn't usually an expensive repair but one that a shop will need to do since most of the work will be in trace testing voltage and signal using a scope.
For future information only here are the blink codes for this unit:

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
Hope this helps!
