Flashing red light

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.

    Mine did the same thing. Check your bulb. Mine was visibly broken internally so I ordered a new one. Haven't gotten it yet. I was told it could also be the ballast but if the ballast is bad it shouldn't ruin my new bulb. Hope this helps

    I've had the optical block replaced after 5 months; Then tonight the tv just went black. When I tried to turn it on the standby light (green) blinked for about a minute then it changed to red. Unplugged tv and powered on and off a few times without any success. HELP

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.

I have a toshiba 50hm67 tv and with mine the blue light would come on and I would hear sound first and then the picture would finally come on... this happend for about a month.... next the yellow and blue light would come on but the pic still wouldn't come on until it clicked off and on by itself for about 10 min this went on for about a week. All of a sudden last night the red lights by the power light started blinking. No tv now and when the tv shut off it said lamp not working.

Does the on/off light flash green and red or just green. Is the light to the left of the on/off light on (this means bulb has definately blown)

Probable problem is that your lamp has blown. This can replaced quite easily, but costs about £100. Search google for xl-2400, there is also a video on youtube showing how to replace bulb.

No picture or sound


Does anything start to work? Any of the three fans start to turn, Lamp ignite, etc., when you press the power button or does nothing happen before the Red LED starts blinking. How many times does the RED LED blink?
