    it's a kdf-70xbr950, it blinks 6 times off then 6 times

  • bartman31 Mar 03, 2008

    Thanks for the info, could it possibly be the lamp, Should it ohm out?

  • bartman31 Mar 05, 2008

    I read where someone had a similar problem, it ended up being the lamp. Should the lamp ohm out? My lamp reads open


  • bartman31 Mar 05, 2008

    yes, I replaced the G1 board 17v supply and got the same thing.

    I ohmed the lamp , but it was open thought that was odd.

    the tv showed no other problems before. it just decided one morning not to turn on.

    6 blinks for your model means + overvoltage protection shutdown. Which means +17 Volts is not supplied G1 Board.

    You will need the service manual to figure this out its probably a diode or regulator transistor but the service manual will help you diagnose it properly. You can get one at the following link

    No the lamp would cause the lamp indicator to light 6 blinks is definately the + voltage shuydown.

    Youre lamp should definately have resistance. But it should have made the lamp indicator light .

Tv won't turn on. It blinks green then red.

Question shows tv is Sony KDF-60WF655.
Green light blinks when tv gets prepare to fire up lamp, check internal circuits then show picture on front screen.
Red light blinking shows some kind of internal problem during circuit check and protection got activated upon some failure.
Count the red light blink as you will see 3 second long pause and post it here to diagnose what section of tv got problem.
Did you replaced its lamp in last 2-3 years?

Kdf-60xs955 red continous blinking lamp light

It's in standby mode.

Do a reset and see what happens

While holding down the reset button on the remote
Press the power button on the tv
(The tv will turn itself off the back on)
Now release the reset button

It sounds like the lamp needs replaced.

Please rate this a fixya
