I have a Sony KF 50 WE 610 projection screen TV. It has worked perfectly since I bought it six or seven years ago. This morning I turned it on and the sound came on for a second, but then the sound went...

Five consicutive blinks at a time and the stops and again blinks five; is its self diagonosis procedure. All modern Sony sets has this function included in its circuits. If the system control IC inside it detect any fatal fault inside its circuits system, it will give a signal to its power control unit to shut it down its high voltage outputs to protect the other components from further damage. In your set; as Sony describes; I quotes:-
  • Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.
  • Actually the components marked in numberes will not be the same as in your TV. But the fault will it be.
    If you have enough knoledge in electronics and have a concept of soldering and have a good quality multimeter; youreself can do this work by home. OK

    Tv turns on w/pic then pic dissapears light blinks 4 times

    I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.

    the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.

    A solution to this would be greatly appreciated.

    My RCA D52W20 will not stay on

    Clicking sound is power relay engaging. If all systems are not functioning properly, unit will shut down to prevent further damage and/or fire hazard
