The thermal fuse went out. it will have to be replaced. call Sony and they can get you the part and instructions, its cheaper than a repair.

I have a Plasma TV with black screen and 6 red light flashes.

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.
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.

Your TV main board is damaged and you need a new one. You can order one on ebay and fix it yourself. Make sure you have the TV model/serial number on the back label of the TV to have the right part when ordering.

Philips 42PFL7603D/10 won't turn on flashes red 4 times slowly then red 6 times quickly

This is an indication of error codes for defects inside the TV. In order to ensure this is not caused by some erratic signal to system IC, switch off TV manually, Switch off power and remove plug and wait for 48 hours and retry. If it does not work even then, the TV might need service.

My Sony bravia kdl55hx800 lcd 3d tv won't turn on

try unplugging your t.v for a few minutes, then plug it back in. if it continues check your owners manual or google your issue. this might be the red flash of death. hopefully unplugging it works. good luck!

I have a 32PFL5332D and when power turned on red light flashes 6 times then stops blinking for 3 seconds and starts again over and over. TV never powers up

Im afraid the set is probably in an over current protection mode wherebye it shuts down to protect itself as one aaea of the tv is drawing excess current, the pattern of flashes will have a code which would guide a techie to problem area, im afraid you will need an engineer visit,sorry George

The TV will not turn on. When the switch at the lower left corner is pressed the light in the switch flashs green for about 4 seconds as the TV seems to go through a start up procedure. Then the light...

The red flashing light is the service code. My guess is the power supply is bad now, but it could be something else. If the TV is under warranty, take it in and get if fixed. If it is not, then you may try to check the power supply first. Count the flashes of the red light and check online for the issues when this model flashes, 4 times or 6 times... or 9 times, etc.

Good luck!
