Question about Sony 42XBR900 Television

1 Answer


I turned on my TV (KE-42XBR900) yesterday and after a few seconds, it automatically turned off. Right after the TV shuts off, the standby timer light on the TV / Plasma screen flashes 6 times and the red light on the base unit flashes 9 times. What could be the problem?

    My unit also turns itself off within a few second of starting up.  The amber light blinks 6 times.  I have tried unplugging both the TV and the receiver, to no avail.  The TV was repaired a few months ago at a cost of $1200.00 for a similar problem (9 flashes).  I'm thinking of junking it and buying a new TV.

    (KE-42XBR900) Turn on power on MRU, TV powers up, clicks, no fans power up in TV, and turns off after a few seconds. Right after the TV shuts off, the standby timer light on the TV / Plasma screen flashes consistenly RED/GREEN RED/GREEN and the red light on the MRU flashes 9 times.

Have a Husq MZ5225 zero-turn. Has been running fine until yesterday and it finally stopped on its own. Tried to start it up without success. Any suggestions?

Issue has to be wither with the ignition and/or fuel delivery systems. Also check all of the safety switches that the unit has for startup purposes. If any of them do not close you will not get ignition.

Hello, i have a sony ke-42xbr900 and the box flashes 9 times (red light) and the tv flashes 6 times (red light), i changed the G board (power supply) from shop jimmy and still have the exact same prob

The R1 or R2 probably the problem. visually inspect each PCB for blown or burnt parts. R1 pt# A1401606B R2 Pt# A1401891B, but these don't appear to available anymore. I have checked with tristate, encompass, shopjimmy & thetvguys

KDF-46E2000 turns off then back on by its self

* Most common would be a couple of capacitors in the power supply that are not letting the proper voltage to the lamp.
* The lamp itself is not working properly.

Brief power on then shuts off

It could be a component short or crack on the power supply board. Open the back of the TV and look for signs of defect. The power supply board is the brown one on the right with huge capacitors.
