Red Light Flashing 6 times

The TV was on, working just fine, I was out of the room for a few minutes, came back in and the screen was out. I turned off, unplugged, then plugged back in. Just after the green power light flashes a couple times (as it normally does before the screen comes on), the power light flashes 6 times continuously. turn tv on no picture or sound and red power light flashes 6 times with a three minute delay and flashes 6 times.This code continues until you power off. I have changed the bulb.I have bipast the surge protector and plugged to wll for power

When the lamp fails in this unit, often the thermal fuse opens. The error code is 6 blinks. To replace this part requires a great deal of deal of disassembly.

    I was not in the chat, I just saw your post on fixya site. The fuse is mounted on the front of the lamp cage with long leads that come from the lamp cage up to the large wire harness on the back of unit. There the two leads (either both black, or one black and one gray) with a plug.

the green is the reboot process and is normal.
the red light is an error code indicator.
count the blinks of the red light...it cant be 30 times (I think)
it will blink a sequence, pause, then do it again for a total of three times.
count carefully, it gives you three chances to catch the number it is blinking.

Try the following to see what exactly the 6 light blinks mean.

To see the diagnostic screen, Press the following buttons:

Display, Channel, 5, Vol Minus, ( Not plus ) then Power.

This brings up a screen with a list of the problems and number of times they have occurred. This will tell you what is happening and see if it's worth fixing.

Also, have you tried unplugging the TV for a few minutes? if it's some kind of computer error, unplugging it will allow the error to clear and possibly allow the TV to work again. Just an idea to try in case the error code doesn't tell you.what is wrong.

Television will not come on. Power light flashing red.


Hello Debbie ok the problem that your tv set is having is coming from the convergence board which is faulty and has to be replaced, you can find one at partstore.com or by contacting the manufactuer of the tv set they should have one in stock, change out the board and you should be seeing tv in no time thank you hope this helps.

Red Light Flashing 6 times


A 6 blink usually indicates a bad thermal fuse caused by the lamp temperature getting too hot. I strongly suggest replacing the sirrocco fan that mounts on top of the optical block too. Usually this fan gets clogged up with dust so the lamp temperature gets hotter than it should causing the thermal fuse to open up. Replacing the thermal fuse, sirrocco fan and cleaning the dust from the inside and fans will cure this. A Sony authorized servicer should be able to repair this for you. Good Luck

Won't power, light goes green 5-10 seconds later red flashing light is basically what's its doing. at 1st i'd power down the tv for a min and then it comes back up with no red flashing going on.


keep pressing the channel up/down button and the screen will come on it may take a few minutes dont use the switch on the side of tv just use the remote buttons u could try the power button on the remote aswell
