Question about Sony KDS-60A2000 60" HDTV
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.

SOURCE: light blink 3 times
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.

Testimonial: "solved my problem with the three blinks, now i have five blinks"
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.
