Sxrd 50 won't turn on - Cooling system or dlp lamp?

Sxrd 50" won't turn on. Green light flashes as if it is going to (sound like fan starts up as well), then shuts down and red light flashes 4 times repeatedly. Does this sound like the cooling sys or the lamp?

4 blinks is a fan error, check and see if the fans are clogged with dirt. Unplug the set then take the back off and get some canned air and blow the fans out.

Solid green light but no picture


I think this is a projection set. Sonys are called SXRD type lcd projection . Little diff from DLP types. But they do have a lamp. Unplug set plug back in then turn on . Count blink code. Check lamp also. blink code is 2 digit code. Code will give clue to failure.

On my 50" sony sxrd


The service manual lists 3 blinks as the light cover not being secure. it has a micro switch behind the cover so if you hold down the switch you can see if this is the problem.

No picture or sound


Does anything start to work? Any of the three fans start to turn, Lamp ignite, etc., when you press the power button or does nothing happen before the Red LED starts blinking. How many times does the RED LED blink?

Flashing red light


I think this sounds like my problem (need to replace the projector lamp). However, when I hit the "on" button, my SXRD 50" blinks green for about a minute then starts blinking red. Can you confirm the bulb solution? I was very pleased with this sight when my fan malfunctioned. I got the fan in a matter of day's from Sony and it fixed that problem.

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!!!
