Sony kdl55hx800 red light blinking 2 times


Expert: Shahid replied 2 years ago.
OK, 2 times red blinking light shows problem with main power supply board that isn't working and need to be replaced in TV.
Power supply board has two type or supply, one is called standby power and other is main power, main power supply isn't working for some reason like defective regulator chip etc so TV shows that red blinking error code.
Power supply board replacement would resolve the problem.

We have 2 Nos Philips Rear Projection TV Sets procured in year 2004. I would like to confirm the effective useful life of these tvs as I am facing problems like convergence. Is there any aging effect on...


These tv's have an expected life of 8 years at normal usage so your tv's are starting to show signs of old age.
Yes, the failure of the power circuits in the convergence board are a common occurrence in tv's of that age. So common that other companies have started to put together refurbishment/repair kits for them. This is the one for this tv - Philips 60PP9363

Looks like it is out of convergence but the center or the picture looks fine I thought maybe pincushion or horizontal width problem


All projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video or dead set) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both.

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. In some cases the TV will also not show any video. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.
