  • fastvegas Jul 28, 2008

    My KDF-60XBR950 was having a problem with the LED would flash three times and then flash three times again for several times. I had a extras lamp and thought the would work. but it still did the same thing. I did check the lamp door switch and it seemed ok. but I used a pen to click it shut manually and it WORKED!!! so the door was bad in some way that made the TV not to fuction with the switch. I bent the door very slightly and it worked. Yeah!!!!!

I had the same problem this morning and got on this forum and read about the solution. The big part of it is how many times the red light is blinking. I took the door off and put it back on and the TV now works again. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR HELP YOU SAVED ME A LOT OF $$$$$$ on a service call.

Pull the frony off of your tv as if you were replacing the lamp (check owners manual) 3 blinks is lamp door switch. if your lamp door is melted or deformed in any way than replace door and lamp if needed. you can contact sony and order the parts yourself.

Lamp door error. Make sure the door is secure. A plastic tab on lamp door pushes on switch, you can hold the switch to test without replacing door. Enjoy!

3 blinks is a lamp cover error, did you make sure that the lamp cover is screwed in tight? Also check the lamp cover for deformity, there is a problem with your model where the set over heats and melts the lamp cover a little causing it not to make connection with the lamp cover switch. Let me know if you find either of these problems? If not we can troubleshoot a little further.

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/
