Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF50WE610 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Last night i turned ON my projection TV to watch a show. It power's ON and watch the show for about 3-5 secs and then the screen went black and the LAMP light blink once.
Then, I turned it OFF using the remote, the red light on POWER/STANBY blinks 5 times in sequence, then I pressed the power button once more then the blinking red stops and powers OFF.
Right now, it powers ON but it's just a black screen and the lamp light isn't blinking anymore.
I just want to make it if this is a LAMP issue and not any other problems? My lamp is still the original one since I bought it around 7-8 years now.

3 times means Lamp and 6 means you have lost a voltage. You may have a thermal fuse blown.
This set has a common trouble with overheating caused by the drum fan located on top of the lamp housing clogged up with dust. When the lamp is getting old it runs hotter and that combined with the fan being clogged the thermal fuse blows. You must replace the lamp and thermal fuse. You must also clean out or replace the lamp fan. This drum type fan should be cleaned out every year or two depending on the environment.

If this is the model I am thinking of, don't bother fixing it. Call up sony and they will should offer you an new sony bravia lcd tv. You can either get the free one or upgrade from the free one to a bigger one. I guess that there is some recall with the light engine and sony is giving out this offer. This happened to my grandma to her 42" grand wega. The ending result was that she got a 46" 120hz sony bravia tv for, if I remember right, $250. I hope that this helps. Good luck and happy new years!!!

How is the picture is it dimmer than usual? Also how many times does the lamp light blink in between each pause? A faulty lamp/live driver on this one would cause it to blink 5 times.. Try counting it and let me know.
