My ws-65615 tv blinks AND GOES BLACK


It may indicate the lamp needs replaced, or that the cooling fans are not turning. When the controller senses too much lamp current, or dimmer than minimum light output, the controller will shut down the lamp to prevent damage. Replacing the lamp fixes that. Over-heating, or fans not rotating will cause the controller to shut OFF the TV. Clean and lubricate the fans with a vacuum and a tiny drop of lubricant on each motor bearing. Also clean and vacuum the air filters. Dust and dirt are the enemies of fans and lamps. Regards.

Sony KDS R60XBR1 red light blinking 3 times. Replaced lamp, cleaned all vents, replaced cover door properly.. What else?


You may need to take off the back cover and clean the fan and if you can, put a little oil on the fan shaft. I also use a small vacuum to get more of the dust out around the fan. You can blow out some of the dust but be careful as you don't want to blow dust into the lamp area. When you take off the back cover you'll be amazed at the amount of dust in there!

My 7-yr-old sony wega keeps restarting; blinks 30 times then video comes back on


Two things here to suggest: one is lamp life is 2000 hours or two years average--and many lamps that fail will either dim just a bit, take a bit longer than did to come up to full brightness and the set may detect that and try to blank the screen.

I am saying a lamp even if lamp light does not come on may be the problem or not.

Second, and I have seen this a lot, the fans in the set intake air in the front of the unit and exhaust it out the rear and no matter how clean the house is dust will get pulled inside.

Fans and air-path's can get coated with dust. Especially the blades on the fans, if a fan slows down just a little because of dust on its blades the set will also detect it as it monitors fan speeds etc.

A good dusting out with compressed air (try not to blow the dust into the screen area) will either confirm this or eliminate it as the problem. I almost always do it in the garage or outside as it may look like a dust storm when you do it.

These are my thoughts and I hope they may help you resolve your problem.

Television wont turn on. green light flashes 7x and then flashes red 4x


check and see if the fans are all running, a 4 blink code is due to a fan failure. sometimes the fans get clogged up with dust that collects on them. unplug the tv and clean the fans, do NOT use canned air to clean them, only vacuum them off and a small brush to clean them. make sure all the covers are on correctly plug the set back in and see if it turns on. let me know if that works.....thanks, Terry

Power light blinking and housing for lamp screws broken


I bet the area around the lamp shows signs of warping and/or cracking too? This is a VERY common issue as the fan that sits above the lamp gets clogged with dirt which allows the lamp to over heat which decreases the lamp life as well as distort the plastic casing around the lamp. The fix is a thermal fuse kit and a new fan and of course a good cleaning of the other fans in these TV's. This should be performed by a service technician.

Sony KF-50WE610 Tv won't turn on, red light blinks 6 times


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.

4 blinking red lights in power/standby


I would recommend replacing the fan, cleaning it doesn't solve the problem...If it does, it's only a temporary fix. Replacement fan is around $30 and easy enough to do yourself...

Red Power Light Blinking 6 Times


THIS IS HOW I FIX MY SONY TV WITH FIVE BLINKING RED POWER LIGHT.

PULL OUT LAMP - FIND THE INSTRUCTION ON LINE (SONY WEBSITE OR YOUTUBE) EASY

THERE ARE TWO METAL CONNECTION TABS (on top of the lamp) ON THE LAMP. CLEAN THESE TWO METAL FLAT TABS. THESE two tabs MAKE CONNECTION TO THE THERMAL FUSE. IF IT IS DIRTY IT WILL NOT MAKE CONNECTION to the fuse.
CLEAN YOU'RE LAMP WITH A VACUUM. GET ALL DUST OUT.. CLEAN OUT THE TV...THE FAN SUCKS IN DIRT. THIS WILL FIX many ISSUEs. like over heating! dog hair, dust, gets sucked inside the TV by the FAN....hmmmm

ALSO DO THIS TO ALL YOU'RE ELECTRONICS THAT HAS A FAN.

(I FEEL ALL FANS ON ELECTRONICS SHOULD BE REVERSED) but i am sure there is a stupid reason that they want the fan to **** air inside the electronics. Like hmm

THIS cleaning SHOULD BE DONE EVERY 6 MONTH
