Question about Sony KDS-60A2000 60" HDTV

1 Answer

Replaced the lamp but power light flashes 3 times like the door isn't closed. Broke a tab off the lower right part of the door. Does that make a sensor? I read to press the reset button for 30 seconds. Is that true and where is it? Thanks.

There is a switch that gets set on with a tab in the door lamp, and it seems like that tab is the one that turns the switch. try to glue back the tab, superglue would do it since it doest need a lot of presure to trigger the switch.

hope this helps

I have a kf42we610 tv and just replaced the lamp.. lamp light isn't flashing this time its the timer that's flashing red.. maybe 10 . Is that because I need to reset the tv if so how.. I have no...

Manuals are available online--google the model number for either "manual" (owner manual) or Service manual.

Double check to make sure when lamp was replaced in set that it went in correctly and door is closed--very easy to get it in wrong.

One or both manuals should have a explanation of the 10 blinks which is a error code.

Power light flashes green likes it turning on then flashes red 3 times. I just replaced lamp Sony Grand Wega KDF-55E2000

3 blinks should on this model mean "LAMP DOOR IS NOT CLOSED" BUT IT really means something else.

Can I assist you?

I can tell you how to prove this or not and if proved it is a simple and not expensive repair..

I replaced the lamp on a SONY KDF50WE665 and it won't power on. The green light comes on for a second and then the red light flashes 3 times continously.

Makre sure the Door is closed on the lamp housing, You cannot just turn this on with the Door open. ( times out of 10 that is what is causing the issue. If the door is closed then is a balast transformer issue and you might want to check that as well.

Let me know ether way.

Please do leave your feedback and ratings before you leave today.

My Hitachi 70" LCD will not turn on

Take the door back off and look for a safety tab somewhere on the door that will activate a small safety switch, the tab will stick out. Maybe you broke the tab off or just didnt get the door on correctly. Try that and let me know.
