Hi,

Unfortunately the news I have is not good. 6 flashes is a panel error, meaning that either you have a bad panel or a fault in one of the drive boards for the panel. Unfortunately, it will take a technician to verify which of the two is at fault. In my personal experience with this set, it usually the plasma panel which has failed when this error occurs. The cost of the panel is over $1000, which usually means it is cheaper to replace the set than repair it. I wish I had better news for you.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    This is a common problem with this set. That being said, still i haven't heard of any recall or lawsuit against Sony for the same.However, it would be a worth taking a shot and calling Sony and check, if they would cover the repair or not. But, legally they are not bound to. I would say, you would be lucky, if they would repair it for free or at a discounted price.

    Let me know,if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks

If the lamp has been replaced I would think the Lamp ballast would be most likliest followed by the color wheel and then the Digital board. You can get any part needed for your model at www.tvrepairworld.com just leave them a email they respond quickly.
