KDS-R50XBR1 changed the lamp on my set, it was blown, put the new one in but I stil don't get a picture, the green lights blink (stand by) and then red lights start blinking three times... can you help... when th lamp was blown I could see through the side vents a redish spark that I would think was the ballast trying to fire the lamp... I could here and see the spark (to the right of the lamp compartment). please, if you have some advise I would appreciate it Dr. GLopez

Check the large fan that is for the Lamp on the left side back of your tv. If it is not turning it is bad and your TV will not stay on.

Cmon, read your manual, it specifically mentions 3 lights...

Means your lamp cover or lamp isn't secure...

Remove the lamp and insert it until you hear it lock into place and screw the lamp cover door tight...

The lamp LED blinks 4 times and repeats, I replaced the lamp but the lamp led is still blinking 4 times and repeats and I have no picture


Hi,
4 times blinking light indicates problem with exhaust fan in KDS-R50XBR1 and possible causes are as follows:
-Fan 1-4 power is not supplied. (ASU board)
-Fan connector is not attached securely.
-Fan caught wires or harnesses.
Please check exhaust fan in tv, it is located at lower right of tv looking at rear of tv.
Thanks.

My KDS-R50XBR1 will power on with picture for approx 1 second with the power light in green, then shut down automatically and the lamp light blinks 4 times. Is this a bad lamp only? Thanks! Mike A.


Hi,
If Lamp light blinks then it is lamp that is near to end of its working life.
If standby light is blinking then it is some thing else, when did you replaced lamp in tv last time?
Thanks.

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.

KDS-R50XBR1 5 red blinks


If you are positive that the fan is still running and that it isn't an over heating issue, I would venture to say you need a new dlp lamp. Your model uses a Sony XL 5100 dlp lamp. You can grab one over at DLPLamps.com.

Power indicator only blinks green for several minutes, then...


I had identical problem which continued for months before the screen started to get dim then went completely black with only the audio remaining. This will happen when the lamp and or balast board starts to fail. You can buy replacement lamp off the internet and install it using only a screw driver. Your Sony manual provides instructions. Don't buy any of those cheap off brand lamps; light output might be low.
