Question about Sony KDSR50XBR1 50" Projection HDTV

Standby Green light Blinks 52 times

My KDSR50XBR1 intermittently will have the sound and picture disappear, the green standby light blinks 52 times and the picture and sound return. No set schedule (does not appear to be a function of how long the TV has been operating and may go days without occurring). Any ideas?

    We turned the tv on yesterday a.m, was on for about 10 seconds then went black, now when we turn it on, the green light blinks and no picture or sound, we hear a tinny noise for a few seconds, but nothing happens. We did have the light engine replaced in April. we have no warranty, refused to pay $700.00 a year. Any ideas ??

52 times? Sorry for laughing...

I would bet it actually flashed 4 times and continued to cycle four times...lol...

If that is the case, check it again to be sure...

If so, here is a very easy fix, created by yours truly...

Ok, I think I have the answer for the BIG FAN failure. I recently did a similar fix on the spindle of an xbox 360 and it is identicle. Ok, this is an EXTREMELY EASY FIX...

Open the back of the tv, locate the large fan (on the lower left on the back of the set.) unscrew the screen and remove the fan.

Once the fan is removed, you will see the side with the model number and the other side is totally open.

On the open side, pull...

The fan will come off, into your hand, it is only held by magnets...

You will notice a spindle on the fan and the other side has the magnets and the hole where the spindle came from (this is the fan motor).

Clean both the spindle and the hole (motor) with a q-tip. The hole is smaller than the q-tip, but do the best you can to remove the old lubricant.

Get a bit of WD40 and lubricate the spindle and spray a touch in the hole.

Put them together, reconnect your fan, test it on startup and thank me...lol...

HOPE THIS HELPS!!!! IT WORKS, TRUST ME...

Sony Grand WegaKDF-E50A10 standby light constant flashing green


Sounds like the main system control-chroma IC fault. These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power led, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy.

I have a Sony KDS-R50XBR1 that has no picture. When I turn on the TV, the green Power/Standby LED light blinks for about 30 seconds, then turns red and blinks five times. The Power/Standby LED repeats...


  • Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen A2 slightly.

Sony kds-r50xbr1 turns itself off and then green light blinks 52


I too have a Sony KDS-R60XBR1 tv and the issue that you are experiencing is due to one of your fans in the rear of the tv is not working.  The tv automatically shuts off in protective mode.  Make sure the POWER/STANDBY light is blinking and not the lamp light below it.  Is the power/standby blinking 4 times in red? If, yes then its a fan that needs to be replaced.  If its the lamp light blinking then you need to replace the lamp.  The lamp is easy to replace by ordering the lamp either from Sony for $250 or find it cheaper for approx. $150 from other DLP sources and replace youself by following your manual.  I hope this helps you.

Sony KDSR50XBR1 50 black screen, no faults! Lamp working, fans OK Sony KDSR50XBR1 50" HDTV: The light engine was working fine before the fan quit starting on it's own. After disassembly, cleaning and lubrication of the fan, I have no errors but the input display or menu options will not post on the screen. The lamp is on but seems to either be projecting a solid black picture, or not be at full brightness and there are no faults. I have a solid greed LED on top, but can get no picture. Sound is fine. What should the lamp voltage be at operating mode? I have tried reseating connectors and pushing on the wires to make sure the connectors seat. This is baffelling because the lamp fired fine for 1 second before the stuck fan issue was corrected and I have no faults now after lubricating the fan. I'm going to check connectors again today as a triple check; as I did remove the power supply. The TV has been reset per instructions in the book. Any advice would be much appreciated but I cannot believe it's the OB as it worked fine before the fan quit and it's about 14 months old. I'm thinking something may not be assembeled correctly, but everthing seems to be pretty idiot proof for re-assembly. Also the menu or input banners will not post. I have 2 new lamps, so it's not that.It seems to be stuck in somne black screen mode. The large fan does start by itself now after cleaning and lubrication, therefore no fault blinks. Please help!!!
