Had a repair man come out to fix it and it turned out to be a bad projector and another one going out. He showed me by hitting the tubes and they both would flash. The third one was ok. i gave him the good one and he waived his service charge. i went out and bought a 61 inch samsung dlp. he said it would be 900 to replace one tube because of labor. he said he could only get the tube but not the rest surrounding the original tube. so he would have to remove all the old stuff from the old one and install it on the new one. cheaper to buy a new tv.

Sounds like a heat problem. Check to make sure that if it has a internal fan that it is working, and clean any dust build up, most projection tv's have fans, usually the number of flashes indicate a code that repeats.

2002 sony #kp51hw40 flashes red light and then shuts off


Count the flashes and the gap between the flashes as I know from experience the tv is giving you an error code in this way to say what is wrong. You should even be able to do this while the tv is in standby. Then once you have the code either consult your manual or try some of the sony forums to find out what the exact problem is. Hope this helps.

Green flashes then tv turns off


or a new lamp. you could first replace the lamp.
the screen might work fine for a couple of seconds, but then it fades away or deteriorates. This means the lamp is going bad.

Error Code 5 flashes when unit shuts down


Good Day;
It sounds like the TV may have a shorted CRT, picture tube, but let's trouble shoot:
1. Unplug TV from wall.
2. Remove speaker grill, two on bottom, the screws are covered with plastic caps, right and left side on bottom next to floor.
3. Remove inner panel.
4. The blue tube is the one the right side, remove socket, with phillips driver, make sure it's not touching anything.
5. Plug and turn TV back on, if picture appears with no blue it's the tube.
6. If still shuts down, bad blue CRT driver IC.
CAUTION: Call a factory authorized service dealer to give you an estimate, if this sounds too hard.
Good Luck, Day, Big Irish.
