The power/standby light blinks red 6 times on my Sony KF50WE610 and there is no picture. What does this error code mean?

    Yes, these TV's are plagued with problems. They advertised it as if the bulb was the only thing that would ever need to be replaced. Had I not bought the extended warranty, I would have already paid over $1300 in repairs.

    It was an IC problem. I'm assuming they replaced a chip on the video board. It cost me $250 to get it repaired.

Six blinks - No Horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking self-diagnosis function immediately. Check C515 & 516 and the jungle IC, IC206.

Not a DIY fix

The most common cause of No Picture - Lights Flashing, or Intermittent Picture - Picture Cuts Out in all Sony LCD TVs is bulb failure.

No troubleshooting or replacing parts should be attempted without installing a "known" good bulb. This is not a fault, the mercury in the bulb has been consumed.

Many dollars are spent on parts and service when the only problem is bulb failure.

You can replace the complete Lamp Assembly or the Bare Bulb. DIY or get a serviceman. Here is a link that shows how to change or replace the bulb or lamp in Sony KF50WE610.

Sony KF50WE610 is DLP tv that does not have H-Stop or Jungle IC thing. Wrong answer, sorry to say.

6 times blinking shows +B OVP error in this tv, check +/- 17V supply on G1 board.

    This is not a DLP TV, it's an LCD projection. I've found that if the power button is pushed repeatidly 20-30 times the TV will eventually power on and work nominally. However, when it is turned off the 6 red blinking lights occurs again the next time the power button is pressed.

  • alwoo508 Sep 09, 2010

    That does not fix the problem, the TV will turn off again

  • Jackal51 Nov 22, 2010

    Did you ever find out the answer? My TV--same model--is doing the same thing. we had been able to get it started by continuing to turn it on when the light turned red, but seems those days are gone now too. From other questions and responses, I get the idea the lamp needs replacing. I've had to replace the lamp before and it's easy to do, but I'd like to be sure that's the fix needed before I pay the $100 or so for the lamp.

The problem is the thermal fuse. You need to have service bulletin to fix it. I have seen other people have the same issue and it was fixed by getting the SB at agoraquest. It's a step by step guide on replacing the thermal fuse. The member that has the service bulletins is Jehill. He has helped several people with this issue

http://www.agoraquest.com/viewtopic.php?topic=24322&forum=34&start=0&select_page_number=1

It takes about 2 hours but saves over $400 in service repair bills.

Here are some of the people that were helped by this

-----------------------------------------
J/K :-p ......worked like a charm :-) Took me about 2 hours and almost half of that was to go and get a 20" #2 philips screwdriver. A 12" would have worked, but they did not have it. Other than than that, no problems. I paid $220 for the TV, $28 for (2) Thermal Fuses, and $11 for a screwdriver. Now I have a decent 2nd TV :-) Not as good as my KD-34XBR960, but not much is :

Happy

I just got done replacing the thermal fuse as per your SB and all is well again! I, and most importantly the wife, just want to take the time to thank you so much for your help. With your instructions and this site, we have just saved ourselves alot of $$ not just for this time but also if it were to happen again in the future. I am truley grateful for finding this site and just want to say you are THE MAN!!!

MY SONY TV MODEL # KF42-WE610 IS SOUND IS COMING ON BUT NO PICTURE


If you turn it on and the, Power/Standby green light blinks slow 6 times; then it becomes a red fast blink 6 times, pause, then continues to blink red fast 6 times, again and again. this means when it's blinking 6 times is indication of electrical circuitry malfunction. The Television will need service.

Sony lcd red blinks 6


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power led, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.

Sony Grand WEGA KF50WE610 tv will not turn off


Problems that do not happen all the time are hard to find--2 things: if set blinks the red light try to count the blinks--usually that is an error code.

Also this set if it does for the most part work should have an error buffer.

With the set turned off and using the Sony remote:

Display

5

Volume down

power


If it has this when it comes on there will be a box in the middle of the screen with several items listed---all must have a zero to the right of them---if one has a number(any number) it means it has detected that error that number of times.

Let me know what you find

in this set 3 blinks means lamp cover not set properly but i think that your problem is your 6x red blinks that means you have a problem in the audio section in your set(missing a voltage) or a themal fuse open.

Sony LCD television will not power on.


I get 5 blinking red lights for about a minute or so before it powers back down. The Sony TV has a specific light that i presume is supposed to light up when the bulb is out. I'm unsure if this is what it is.
no picture, no sound. tries to boot with green light blinking a few times. then goes to red blinking light, six in all, then waits a few moments, then another 6 blinking red light.
Bulb was already replaced several months ago but we do have the TV on for long periods of time.
