Question about Sony KDS-R50XBR1 50" HDTV

9 red blinks

Hi Guys Please I need your help!!!
18 months ago I bought a Sony KDS-R50XBR1.
A couple of weeks ago it started to show reddish
/pink colors when I turned it on. If I clicked on/off
the tv was used to work fine.


Now every time I turn the tv on it goes off by itself.
On average after I turn tv on for 20/30 times it
starts working.(sometimes with the reddish color).
After 3 hours it turns off.
In stand-by the tv blinks 9 red times.
Do you have any suggestions?

(I know that if it's an optical block the part will be
replaced for free by Sony because of the class action)
Thanks a lot

Temperature sensor S1, S2, C board or IIC line connector is not seated correctly.

Sony KDS-R50XBR1 /(2005) Red stand-by light blinks 4 times.Tried new bulb (Philips) 1 week ago ,same problem as before .Whole new light engine replaced two yrs ago by sony.What happens is it will turn off...


The error code of 4 blinks indicate a fan problem.the fan is slowing or internitantly stoping. the fan is stallling. or the fans not getting power. Always rember anything that moves will eventally stop. this fan is on all the time. also there more than one fan. Listen closely to hear the fan. The fan is not difficult or exspensive repair.

I have a Sony KDS-R50XBR1. it worked fine last night, this morning however, it did not come on at all. it blinks green for awhile, then blinks red continuesly. what is wrong? please help.


The red blinks are a diagnostic tool. If you search this site for KDS-R50XBR1 you will see several problems and the area to look in to. the red blinks should be followed by a three second pause and then repeat. Just count the blinks after the pause and you should have a better idea of what is wrong. The service manual goes all the way up to ten blinks.

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.

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.
