Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF55E2000 55" Projection HDTV
I had the same problem of the power light blinking red six times and saw how you fixed the problem by replacing the thermal fuse.
I have now ordered the new thermal fuse from Sony and in preperation, have removed the bulb through the front and the rear access panel and fan.
It looks to me that to remove the old thermal fuse, I need to remove two screws. But there is only about an inch or so clearance above the two screws, so I do not see how I will be able to remove the old one. Do I need to remove the old one? If so, how were you able to remove the old one?
Blinking red power light 6 times. Tv picture goes on and off. Then the red lamp light came on? Now nothing.

The PROPER way to replace the thermal fuse is to remove the optical block first. There are at least two recessed screws holding the block in place. BE VERY CAREFUL removing the block as it is very easy to tear/rip wires when doing so. I cannot emphasize enough NOT TO JUST THROW THE NEW THERMAL FUSE INSIDE THE CABINET!!!! The thermal fuse is a safety device mounted near the lamp to prevent overheating. Those that choose to just let the fuse "sit out in the open air" are risking greater failures and the possibility of fire.
