A lot of these sets had a stupid problem---3 blinks usually means "the lamp door is not properly closed".

What happens here is heat from the lamp warps the door---it has on the back a peg of plastic that when it is installed engages a lever switch--protection so the set cannot be operated with the door off.

If you remove the door and look at it---if it is bowed a little it is most likely your problem---There is a easy way to prove this---with the door removed engage the switch with something not metal ( a plastic shaft or wood match) so the lever which is visable is engaged.

If the set comes on this way--you need to replace the door----There are places on the net and Ebay that sell a replacement---DO NOT BY PASS THE SWITCH AND PUT THE LARGE PLASTIC FRONT PIECE BACK ON---YOU MAY MELT IT ALSO--THE DANGER OF LONG TERM OPERATION WITH THE SWITCH BYPASSED AND THE LAMP EXPOSED IS THE LAMP GETS VERY BRIGHT AND HOT--DO NOT LOOK AT IT DIRECTLY.

Let me know what you find and if you need more help let me know--I am here to help people.

If this is a Sony dlp then check the lamp door for warp, if this is not a Sony need model and brand. Or if it is a Sony but not a DLP then still need model.

SOURCE: tv not comming on red light blink 3 times stop

I do not agree with previous expert solution because it is not power supply/ power board failure in tv.
I think lamp was taken out from tv or may be it was replaced.
Check lamp cover in your Sony tv that is not fixed properly on its position. Make sure lamp cover is fixed securely.

Green orange then red flashing 3 times light


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Tv light standby red just keeps blinking after replacing bulb


Hi,
If red light was not blinking before lamp replacement and after that it start blinking 3 times then pause for three seconds and again blink, check lamp cover that has not been fixed on tv or it is not fixed/ seated correctly there.
Lamp cover is first thing that you removed from tv to replace lamp.
Hope these info will help. If red light is blinking other than 3 times, let me know how many times it is blinking along with tv model number written at rear to provide you helpful info.
Thanks.

I have a 4 year old Sony KDF-E42A10 television - the power/standby light blinks red 5 times, pauses, blinks red 5 times again, etc. I have replaced the lamp previously when the light was blinking red 3...


Hi there,
5 blinks means there is a problem with the video board. It could be as simple as unplugging everything, includding power. Wait 3 minutes then plug power only back in. Or it may be a damaged component that requires replacing.
Hope this helps
