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.

The red lamp light on my Sony Wega SXRD flashes 5 times 2-3 times in a row then shuts off. No picture or sound


This usually indicates a problem with the main board on the TV. This board is similar to the motherboard in a computer. I would have a repair professional look at it to confirm my suspicion. However, I will warn you that if it is the main board, it is generally more economical to simply purchase a new TV.

How to FIX


Televisions have protection circuits which prevent full power-on if a fault is detected in a high voltage/high current circuit such as the backlight inverter.

Some googling on 'Sony Blink Codes' found that 4 blinks is 'backlight failure'. A common failure in LCD displays is the backlight inverter board which is a transformer similar in function to a fluorescent light ballast, as the backlights are fluorescent lamps.

If the screen color is getting pinkish/reddish, that's a sign that one or more of the lamps themselves are going bad.

Since multiple lamps are connected to (typically) two inverter boards (a primary and secondary board), I am fairly certain that the blink code refers to a failed inverter board and not a failed lamp.

Sony WEGA Large Projection TV


I sounds like the projection bulb has failed. I think there is a red lamp on the front that lights up when the bulb fails however.
This sounds very similiar to what mine did when the bulb failed about 2 months ago. Once the buld fails the TV will shut itself down and keep doing that until the bulb is replaced.
