    We changed the lamp once already. Lately, the screen shuts off periodically, the red light starts to blink immediately (34 times), and then the screen will come on again. Is it the lamp again? I was told by the tech who changed the lamp to watch/count the red blinking light to help troubleshoot. I can't remember the blinking count from the first time to determine if it is the lamp again.

Changed lamp and TV won't turn on, power light flashes 3 times


Hi,
Red light blinking 3 times shows problem with lamp cover.
Lamp cover is not fixed securely in your tv after lamp replacement. Lamp cover is first thing that was removed to replace lamp, check lamp cover and make sure its back in place properly.
Thanks.

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


Hi,
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?
Thanks.

Tv went blank blinks green then red 6times won't turn back on even after lamp replacement and lamp was bad


Hello. I just changed my bulb in the same tv. Your bulb and housing is not all the way in . That is why it blinks then turns red. Open up your light door and press it fully in and a tad downwards. It will fix the problem,
