Without a proper troubleshoot the answer i can give you is only a guess based on what i have seen come through our shop, but it sounds like one of the backlights are not lighting up all the time. If one of the backlights fail the set will go into shutdown, if you count the blinks from the power light this will give you an error number that will tell you exactly what the problem is. But the symptom is one i see when the backlights (ccfl) are beginning to fail. The repair would be to replace the display panel. But a proper diagnostic is important.

    That means it keeps trying to strike the lamp and it does not go into error. That will happen. If you shine a flashlight on the screen you may see a shadow of the picture trying to be displayed, if so then you do have backlight issues.

I have a 2 year old Sony Bravia KDS 50A3000 rear projection TV. We replaced the bulb about 2 months ago and now all of a sudden the bulb will go off and we loose the picture for 35 seconds, nothing happens...


well if you replace the lamp 2 months ago this could be a ballast issue go to your back of the TV and if you ear a weird mechanical noises like a tick,tick when you are down there this is the ballast.

TV doesn't turn on


If it does not give a picture at all not even for a moment, i would suspect a bad power supply, the circuit has quite a few components and either one of those could be giving you trouble.

Sony Bravia KDS-60A3000 won't power up 9 flashing red power light


According to other posts I have read (I have same problem) there is no power getting to the fans. They recommend re-seating the fan harness again as it might have come loose or might have dust etc., in it.

I have no idea how to do this yet but that is what the trouble-shooting guide says.
