Question about Sony KDS-R60XBR1 60" Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Hello, I have the KDS-R60XBR1 60 inch TV. The green light flashes about 40 times and then the red light flashes about 10 times (then nothing). When the green light is flashing, you can hear the TV trying to turn on, but once the red light flashes there is not sound at all. Any chance you can give me some idea of what is wrong?

First, if you have the manual, open it to troubleshooting, if you don't have it; www.sonystyle.com then click on support, then manuals. you can download it for free. The manual will decipher the flashes for you to narrow down your possibilities. The three main problems in the Sony lineup are the optical block, the bulb, and the fan. The fan is the only real obvious one that can be fixed quickly. When you turn on the TV, the fan should click on ( may vary depending on your main setup from TV menu) However, if you have any compressed air (dust off) etc. The fan is on the rear of the set on the right lower 1/3rd (looking from behind set) Location is in the manual too. If the fan can't turn on, the TV will shut down. Also, go to this site for further help from "Sony"

Power light flashed red 4 times then repeats no pic,new bulb/fan!


Check the fan that cools the bulb. It is directly behing the bulb. It should turn on when the power comes on. It apparently has a safety to protect your tv(and home). mine is in the process of going out. looking for online solutions as we speak.

The Power Light is Red


yeah, should stay red when unit is turned off, indicating there's power but it's doing nothing.

Per user manual:
Solid red - power off (standby mode)
blinking red - power off (now cooling)
blinking green - power on (preparing to light lamp)
solid green - power on

TV screen went black, sound ok, red light blink 5 times


Be sure its blinking 5 times, count after it cycles the first time through the red lights. If it is fact 5 times, that is a lamp driver error.More likely it cycled 4 times, which is common on this model, if that's the case, then it's the fan. Most likely the large one in the rear...It's an easy fix, just pull the back off and replace the part.
