Question about Sony KDF-E42A10 42 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

No picture; No sound

When turning on the TV, green light bulb burns steady for a couple of minutes; then steady green light changes to blinking red light. Picture or sound never come on.

This is a sudden onset problem. Previous sound, color, and picture quality were very good. We returned from weeks of vacation and disovered the reported problem. Neighbors tell us there was a bad storm with electricity disruptions while we were gone. Batteries in the remote are brand new. TV has never been mistreated or subject to abuse.

Did anyone find out the solution for this??????? I have the exact same problem with my LG 32 LCD. I only had it for a year and a half, and the green light blinks a few times and it shows no picture. Not even a red light when the tv is off. The same thing happened a couple weeks ago and by some miracle it started working again.

Red Light Flashing 6 times

When the lamp fails in this unit, often the thermal fuse opens. The error code is 6 blinks. To replace this part requires a great deal of deal of disassembly.
