Re: no power red ligth blinking 6 times

OK, Here is another easy Fix, The problem is your Thermal Fuse is no Good (open) This can be found near the lamp housing. To fix this, you need to take the back off. Remove the Fan, look into the lamp housing. There is a plug with a small black tip mounted near the lamp. This need to be changed. Its just unplugging one cable and put the new on in. Part Number 1-910-023-93, average cost $4.80

Best regards

Re: no power red ligth blinking 6 times

The problem is the thermal fuse. You need to have service bulletin to fix it. I have seen other people have the same issue and it was fixed by getting the SB at agoraquest. It's a step by step guide on replacing the thermal fuse. The member that has the service bulletins is Jehill. He has helped several people with this issue

It takes about 2 hours but saves over $400 in service repair bills.

Here are some of the people that were helped by this

J/K :-p ......worked like a charm :-) Took me about 2 hours and almost half of that was to go and get a 20" #2 philips screwdriver. A 12" would have worked, but they did not have it. Other than than that, no problems. I paid $220 for the TV, $28 for (2) Thermal Fuses, and $11 for a screwdriver. Now I have a decent 2nd TV :-) Not as good as my KD-34XBR960, but not much is :



I just got done replacing the thermal fuse as per your SB and all is well again! I, and most importantly the wife, just want to take the time to thank you so much for your help. With your instructions and this site, we have just saved ourselves alot of $$ not just for this time but also if it were to happen again in the future. I am truley grateful for finding this site and just want to say you are THE MAN!!!


1 10" screwdriver $12.00
1 Sony Thermal Fuse + shipping $ 8.00
1 membership to $12.00

If you turn it on and the, Power/Standby green light blinks slow 6 times; then it becomes a red fast blink 6 times, pause, then continues to blink red fast 6 times, again and again. this means when it's blinking 6 times is indication of electrical circuitry malfunction. The Television will need service.

Hi there,
5 blinks means there is a problem with the video board. It could be as simple as unplugging everything, includding power. Wait 3 minutes then plug power only back in. Or it may be a damaged component that requires replacing.
Hope this helps

My sony 50" wega just quit. No picture , no sound , no nothing ?

If you see standby red light blinking on Tv front with 3 seconds interval then count its blinks from pause to pause and let me know, its an error code.
And if TV does not even show standby light then check fuse in power supply that would be blew off for some reason, replace it.
Still problem? let me know with exact model number of your Sony TV.

My Sony KP-46WT500 screen shows the tv image in blue only for a few seconds, then it goes completely blank (as if it were off). Do I need to replace the bulbs?

It is rear projection TV that use 3 picture tubes of red-green-blue to show color picture on tv front screen.
Do you see standby red light blinking when TV shuts off after showing blue image for a while?
If red standby light is blinking, please count it how many times it blinks, there would be 3 seconds pause between blinks so count pause to pause and post it here to find out possible solution.
