    The model no. is KDSR60XBR1 . I suspect the problem has something to do with the microchip in the lamp door. However, i thought it might be some type of voltage problem based on Sonys' diagnostic stating that three blinks of red light might indicate this. Thank you

    Thanks. Last question. I can take the back panel off the TV but was wondering how difficult it is to replace microswitch. If it is a low degree of difficulty (unplug old/plug in new). If it is more difficult than that, then I will decide to try to do it or call a technician. What's your thought or opinion? Again, thank you very much. Regards, Bill

    OK, Sony KDSR60XBR1 tv
    3 times blink is an error code that shows problem with lamp cover micro switch that is not being pressed by lamp cover correctly. It is safety switch that tells system control chip that lamp cover is in its position securely and tight.
    Check lamp cover that might not be fixed properly, put that lamp cover in its place properly to solve tv issue and if lamp cover seems OK then check/ replace micro switch.
    Let me know if you have additional question.
    Thanks.

    I think lamp door switch replacement is not so difficult job for handy person.
    Below is exploded view that shows T1 Board location that has safety switch on it, replace that little board if switch is broken.
    T1 Board part number is as follows:

    A1123096A....... T1 BOARD, COMPLETE
    Available in PartStore.com
    Hope these info will help you.
    Thanks.

Hi there,
5 blinks means there is a problem with the video board. It could be as simple as unplugging everything, includding power. Wait 3 minutes then plug power only back in. Or it may be a damaged component that requires replacing.
Hope this helps

No Picture or sound


The lamp cover door was not secured tightly. Door does not "push" shut easily. Got a little rough with it and latched it shut, then the tv worked fine.

Sony kv35s66: No picture, just sound and red blinking


This should be a quick fix. Try resoldering the vertical IC. This is a small flat IC attached to a heat sink with about 11 pins. It should be marked LA7837 or something similar. That should resolve the problem.

Keep us posted.

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.

Sony kv35s66: No picture, just sound and red blinking


The most common problem (I have fixed lots) is the Vertical amplifier has developed a loose connection. It probably just needs resoldering. As things expand it makes and looses connection you picture goes in and out. The vertical chip is a large black chip that gets hot, over time it degrades the solder until a connection is damaged. Most newer sets have a protection circuit that senses the lack of height, and shuts down the picture tube to save it. When the picture dropped to a line on older TVs and left that way too long it would burn a line into the face of the picture tube. You then had to have the picture tube replaced along with the vertical amp. it's kinda like a screensaver for your TV.
