Light blinks red and makes noise won't turn on

    I have the same problem as the person who listed above. My model is: PT-52LCX66. I was watching TV and then I heard a light pop then the tv turned off. I tried to turn it back on, however, the green light blinked (as it usually does) and turned off. Then the red light started blinking on the LAMP indicator and it also makes a whirring sound (almost like DVD Changer going through CD's). Please help. Thank You.

My Sony wega tv won't turn on goes into standby red light blinks 10 times then shuts off?


Look at the owner manual as the 10 blinks is a error code or Google the model number to locate that information--Sony error codes are general and often misleading.

I would if looking at the set inspect the lamp first.

Tv makes popping noise than turns off


Open and remove lamp first to examine it---try to also listen to hear where the noise is coming from.

If set shuts off some light should be blinking a error code which is a series of red blinks that repeats over and over----3 and 5 blinks are two common ones on this model.

which LED lights on front are on and or blinking?

If the red or others blink look to see if they are blinking a specific number of times--like red one blinking 3 times, pause and repeating--this is a error code and may indicate what problem in set is.

The red "on" light is blinking and the TV


a suggestion: unplug set and try to turn on again; if power light blinks does it blink in a sequence?

3 blinks repeated will mean a problem in the Convergence area.

5 blinks repeated will mean a short on the 140 volt line.

These are the two most common error codes.

TV will not turn on. Lights Blink and hear noise


Have you replaced the lamp ? Make sure the door cover is closed good because there is a switch that is made when the door cover is put back on. Also you could have a bad ballast board or bad power unit board. Just a thought...... Hope this is helpful.

Tv will not power up - makes a weird noise and red light blinks constantly.


It sounds like a bad lamp, a bad lamp driver or a combination of the two. Be aware that sometimes a bad lamp driver will blow a perfectly good lamp, so if you're not sure which is causing the problem, replacing BOTH would probably be the best course of action
