The red light usually indicates a power section problem. It would be something just about gone or overheating.

You will have to take this into a repair shop or a Phillips repair depot. You really should get an estimate for this before commiting to getting it fixed. Depending on the year it may have a sperate power board (cheapish to fix) or might require the main board to be fixed (lots of $$$) Worse case is that it can cost as much to repair as just buying a new replacement tv. So get the repair estimate and check around for replacement costs and let that be your guide as to which way to go with this.

Sony kds-rx60xbr1 red light blinking turn it on and off and tv goes on


The lamp for this model number is XL-5100
Before ordering the lamp, I would inspect the inside of the TV, be certain that the three fans are clean and free from dust. Often if a fan does not start the first time it may start on a restart. Due to the nature of televisions operating, dust seems drawn to these TV's. Cleaning the fans might correct your issue.

Samsung HLP4674W - changed bulb - still no picture - lights flash


If the lamp has been replaced I would think the Lamp ballast would be most likliest followed by the color wheel and then the Digital board. You can get any part needed for your model at www.tvrepairworld.com just leave them a email they respond quickly.

Sony Vega KDF-E5OA10,picture will not come on, tv goes off.


There is a real good chance that the lamp fan is not turning. If you look with a flashlight in the vent on the left side looking at the rear of the set and have someone turn on the unit, see if it spins. if it doesnt, the protect circuit in the tv will not let the set turn on. Replacing the fan will cure the proplem if it is not turning.
Hope this helps,

I turn on the tv but I get no picture (black screen). A sound starts when I turn on the tv. The sound ( like a humming noise) fan perhaps which goes up and down for about a minute then the tv shuts off and...


Sounds like a problem with the color wheel. Unfortunately the color wheel is located inside the light engine. According to everything I have read, the only thing you can do is replace the light engine. You are better off replacing the TV. The light engines can run form $750 to $1400. Which is ridiculous!
