Re: kds-r50xbr1 will not turn on blinjs 4 times how do...

If the above solution does not work... try to replace the lamp... part 5100... it's on the left side of the TV (if you are working from the back of the TV). there is one small screw that secures the door to the television. once you remove that door,the lamp is right there with the labels that say pull... remove this part. you'll likely see the shattered bulb on the inside (if not, then i don't know what to tell ya). replace this part and the TV should be as good as new. you will have to call around to find one in stock though. the cost of the lamp is right around $250.00

this works for 50" as well

Sony KDS-R50XBR1 /(2005) Red stand-by light blinks 4 times.Tried new bulb (Philips) 1 week ago ,same problem as before .Whole new light engine replaced two yrs ago by sony.What happens is it will turn off...

The error code of 4 blinks indicate a fan problem.the fan is slowing or internitantly stoping. the fan is stallling. or the fans not getting power. Always rember anything that moves will eventally stop. this fan is on all the time. also there more than one fan. Listen closely to hear the fan. The fan is not difficult or exspensive repair.

The lamp LED blinks 4 times and repeats, I replaced the lamp but the lamp led is still blinking 4 times and repeats and I have no picture

4 times blinking light indicates problem with exhaust fan in KDS-R50XBR1 and possible causes are as follows:
-Fan 1-4 power is not supplied. (ASU board)
-Fan connector is not attached securely.
-Fan caught wires or harnesses.
Please check exhaust fan in tv, it is located at lower right of tv looking at rear of tv.

Power light flashed red 4 times then repeats no pic,new bulb/fan!

Check the fan that cools the bulb. It is directly behing the bulb. It should turn on when the power comes on. It apparently has a safety to protect your tv(and home). mine is in the process of going out. looking for online solutions as we speak.

I think that is fan error you can remove back and make sure they are turning the lamp fan usually fails most.You can clean fans replug connections. You can try turning fan with a pencil to jump start it. If it starts to run it may only be temporary and fan would need replacement.

Sony kds-r50xbr1 turns itself off and then green light blinks 52

I too have a Sony KDS-R60XBR1 tv and the issue that you are experiencing is due to one of your fans in the rear of the tv is not working.  The tv automatically shuts off in protective mode.  Make sure the POWER/STANDBY light is blinking and not the lamp light below it.  Is the power/standby blinking 4 times in red? If, yes then its a fan that needs to be replaced.  If its the lamp light blinking then you need to replace the lamp.  The lamp is easy to replace by ordering the lamp either from Sony for $250 or find it cheaper for approx. $150 from other DLP sources and replace youself by following your manual.  I hope this helps you.

KDS-R50XBR1 5 red blinks

If you are positive that the fan is still running and that it isn't an over heating issue, I would venture to say you need a new dlp lamp. Your model uses a Sony XL 5100 dlp lamp. You can grab one over at

The fans continue to run after these TVs are turned off, so its likely that its one of the fans. The most likely fan is the exhaust fan that is in front of the lamp assy.

Need suggestions!!!

I have the same problem and this is caused by one of the fans not coming on when the TV boots up. If you look behind the TV you can see two of the fans without even removing the cover. The one on the left is a large fan that cools the bulb. This is the one that has died on mine. If I CAREFULLY stick a small screwdriver through the fan grate on the back I can give the fan a nudge and it will start up. Then the TV comes on OK. If you have extended coverage then you should be fine - but if they tell you the part is not covered - it should be easy to replace the fan. The problem is finding one. I found one place that sells it for about $25 but they have no pictures - so I am not sure which is the right fan. Let me know how you made out with the repair guy.
