Sony KDS-60A3000 will not turn on

I am not at work right now and don't have access to my service manuals but i believe a 6 blink on an a3000 is missing 13 volts. If it is in warranty please call an authorized sony repair shop. If not The most likely problem is the power supply board. But there are tests that a technician needs to preform with a dvm to verify which board is causing the problem. The missing 13 volts could also be because another board may be loading down the 13 volt line.

It would be hard for me to estimate a repair cost for this problem, depending on the board it could run anywhere from $300.00 to $600.00

Did Sony tell you to have the tv serviced?

My Sony KDS-60A3000 randomly turns off, then the red "Power LED" blinks three times repeatedly (not "Lamp LED"). We turn it back on, the process repeats again between 20-60 minutes.

3 blinks of Standby/power LED of Sony sets denotes a SMPS board [G-board] failure. . 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.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

Sony KDS-60A3000 turns off by itself and red light flashes 3 times

the flashing light is more than likely the fault code. but those can be wrong bet even money that the door has a sensor to know if its open and the the bi-metallic switch is on the fritz look around the door see of the is a small pressure actuated switch the opens and closes with the door if so all else checks out 85 % chance that will be you problem

Sony Bravia KDS-60A3000 won't power up. Power light on front of unit turns green when you power on and picture appears for two seconds then powers off with tthe power light turning red and flashing nine...

First if you have had the set for at least two years, then its time for a new lamp. Replace your lamp and this should solve your problem. I don't know how long you have had ur television but lamps usually last about 6500 hours, thats a little less then 3years. But sometimes they go sooner. The lamp door should be located to the right of the unit on the side, if you are facing the television..

Sony Bravia KDS-60A3000 won't power up 9 flashing red power light

According to other posts I have read (I have same problem) there is no power getting to the fans. They recommend re-seating the fan harness again as it might have come loose or might have dust etc., in it.

I have no idea how to do this yet but that is what the trouble-shooting guide says.

60A3000 replaced bulb and get red light 6 flashes


The 6X blink is not the seating of the lamp. The blinking pattern is saying that the door to the lamp chamber is not on properly. Because the fan draws air across the lamp to cool it, the door has to be in place and properly latched for it to do so. I would take the door off, then carefully put it back on so that it does not bind up (which is common on this model). Make sure that the sliding latch goes all the way to the right, and that the screw that holds the latch is tightened hand-tight.

If you are still having problems, then it might be due to a damaged or defective lamp-door switch, which will require an authorized service tech to look at it (only because there are several very delicate parts to this TV that a tech has to be aware of).

I hope this helps you...
