4 red light flashes normally means there is a problem with the fan. Time to make a service call.

Fujitsu asta18lcc has a constantly fast flashing green light and the red light flashes slower 5 times with a small gap between each 5 flashes. Unit wont work at all apart from lights.

The red light (operation) flashing 5 times can be one of four things depending on the green light (timer) but the green light should flash at the same rate as the red light, not faster - either 2,3,5 or 6 times. Anything other than these is abnormal and you will need a tech to diagnose.
Could be a faulty controller board or compressor.

I have an old Carrier N1340 air conditioner that works when switched on, green light flashes 4 times, for a few times then it shuts down. There is also a flashing red light inside that unit.

There will be a list of flash codes in your manual or on the inside cover of the unit indicating what the problem is eg. low pressure or high pressure alarm

Sony bravia kdl55hx729 3d led tv turns on 3 seconds shows picture than four red flashes

the error light sequence that you are seeing is indicating a "backlight error". Most likely you have a bad inverter board -the board that powers up the back-lights behind the display panel. They might be available via ebay if you are a DIYer, or you need to call for sony service.
Good Luck!

I have the 50" SXRD XBR1 grand Wega; This has been a great set for 3+ yrs. A flashing red light promted me to replace my original buld (this site). I now still have a flashing red "power" light, shuts off...

Its the fan that cools the bulb. Try turning on the tv and look at the fan to the rear of the bulb. If the fan is not spinning that is your prblem. The tv has a safety switch that will cut off the tv if the bulb gets too hot. I was able to tap my fan with a pencil and get it spinning, but that is just a temperary fix. After a while, you will find the fan will stop working all together and it will need to be replaced.

Sony KDSR50XBR1 50 black screen, no faults! Lamp working, fans OK Sony KDSR50XBR1 50" HDTV: The light engine was working fine before the fan quit starting on it's own. After disassembly, cleaning and lubrication of the fan, I have no errors but the input display or menu options will not post on the screen. The lamp is on but seems to either be projecting a solid black picture, or not be at full brightness and there are no faults. I have a solid greed LED on top, but can get no picture. Sound is fine. What should the lamp voltage be at operating mode? I have tried reseating connectors and pushing on the wires to make sure the connectors seat. This is baffelling because the lamp fired fine for 1 second before the stuck fan issue was corrected and I have no faults now after lubricating the fan. I'm going to check connectors again today as a triple check; as I did remove the power supply. The TV has been reset per instructions in the book. Any advice would be much appreciated but I cannot believe it's the OB as it worked fine before the fan quit and it's about 14 months old. I'm thinking something may not be assembeled correctly, but everthing seems to be pretty idiot proof for re-assembly. Also the menu or input banners will not post. I have 2 new lamps, so it's not that.It seems to be stuck in somne black screen mode. The large fan does start by itself now after cleaning and lubrication, therefore no fault blinks. Please help!!!
