Question about Sony VPLHW15 1080p SXRD Home Theater Projector

1 Answer

In my VPL-HW15 (SONY) the standby red lights flashes 12 times. It does not turn on, only flashes the red light. The fan does not start, and there is nothing in the manual about it. Couple of days ago it was complaining that the filter needed to be clean. I already cleaned the filter. Thank you, Mauricio.

    Thank you for the quick reply.
    The problem is I am in Brazil, I dont think there is support for this projector down here. I've bought this in the US.
    Any other idea ? Isnt this a case of opening and cleaning ?

Hi,
Related service manual does not have 12 times red light blink error code details but in my opinion, it sounds temp sensor problem that is sending false signal to system control chip and preventing projector to power up.
This projector has at least 4 temp sensors inside and I would recommend to send it in nearest Sony service center for fix as it is not user level repair and requires qualified person to look into.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

    Humm, this is real problem.
    Below is exploded view that shows boards location in this projector, temp sensors are located on V board, TL board. One is located in C board that is untouchable because that board is part of light engine (optic block)
    Check these temp sensors with help of local tv repair shop as they might help you to fix it.
    I'm afraid, thats all I can help you over internet.
    Thanks.

Sony VPL-ES7 projector boots up after few seconds switches off, with a red light flashing severally on the power button. Please what could be the problem because i have serviced the projector!!!!


Check the fan connections, one might not be connected right if you have just serviced it. Switching off with a flashing red light usually indicates a fan error.
Also is there a sequence to the flashes? e.g, 4 flashes and pause?
some manufacturers have a fault code table for the amount of flashes.

Morning, it flashes red light six times


From the manual:

Press the (ON/STANDBY) switch to turn on the projector. If
the power is not turned on, disconnect the AC power cord, then
confirm the ON/STANDBY lamp is turned off. After about 10
seconds, reconnect the AC power cord and turn on the power
again. If the indicators still light up, the electrical system has a
problem. Consult with qualified Sony personnel.

On/Standby light flashes red four times


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 section 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 procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

A Flashing Red ON/STANDBY LED means one of the following
2 Flashes - The internal temprature is high. Check the air holes are unobstructed.
4 Flashes - The fan is broken
6 Flashes - The internal electrical system has failed.
There is no entry in the manual for 12 red flashes.

Four blinking red lights.


Either on of the backlight inverter boards is bad or a backlight has failed inside the panel.
