Question about Sony KDSR50XBR1 50" Projection HDTV
I have this sxrd projection for 6 months.suddenly,while watching a tv show,the picture disapeared but sound remained,a green light continouosly blinked,i pressed on the ON button and suddenly the sound also disappeared and the blinking green light became red which flashed 5 times for every 2sec interval.i switched off the tv,after a while pulled out the plug.after 30minutes tried to turn on the tv but won't start anymore with the standby button flashing red 5 times for every interval
My standby light blinks 5x and the t.v. won't turn on. I have unplugged the t.v. from the socket, but still no luck. Called Sony and all they said was that the blinking could be a few things and that I should call a Sony authorized dealer. The optical block alredy went on this t.v and it's not even 2 years old.
On the right side of the tv as you are looking at it behind the lamp housing cover there is another cover that has four snaps. It looked like it used to hold a filter. Take this cover off and blow out any dirt with dry air from your electronics store. Plug it back in and turn the set on. If that does not work I have removed the lamp housing cover and blown that out. Turn the set back on. If that did not work then tap mediumly on the back behind the housing. It appears that the main fan has a problem with collecting dirt and the quitting.

SOURCE: flashing red light
I think this sounds like my problem (need to replace the projector lamp). However, when I hit the "on" button, my SXRD 50" blinks green for about a minute then starts blinking red. Can you confirm the bulb solution? I was very pleased with this sight when my fan malfunctioned. I got the fan in a matter of day's from Sony and it fixed that problem.
