    The unit was attached to a 6ohm set of speakers, I suspect that one short circuited. Apparantly this has happened before and has been corrected with a simple system reset?????

Normally this behavior is indicative of what is called "protectoin" mode. This means that a problem has been detected and the output section is not turned on. This is not usually cleared by a reset unless the initial cause of the problem has been removed. The reset in this case is a power off/on sequence.

Now as far as the actual problem is concerned, the most common causes of this is either shorted speaker wires or bad speakers. If that had occurred it is possible that one or more of the output transistors has shorted as a result. If the shorted speaker or wire is the problem, then dis-connecting the speaker wires fro the back of the unit will allow the unit to start up correctly. If hte wires are removed and the condition continues, then the problem is internal tot the receiver.

Can you update this with what happens when the speaker wires are removed please?

Thanks,
Dan

Try pushing these buttons at the same time for a few seconds:
Advanced Surround + Enter..

'Advaned Surround' will be found in the front panel and 'Return' near the multi-jog dial.

Its a fail safe feature to lock the unit if its damaged, It will not power on until the error is corrected, This can be eighter in the power supply or the main board. It can be as simple as a capicator or cracked solder to as complexed as an IC. Unfortunately to tell you the exact error is difficult from where i sit, You will need a multimeter and contunity checking until you find the error. This problem requires hands on assistance an isnt possible from a remote fix.

No power output or display.green standby light flashes.


Sounds like either a blown mainpower fuse or the thermal fuse for the power transformer. If the protect circuit was kicking in, the display would light up, but then turn off with a red blinking light. the green light with no display means the transformer is not getting power.

Hi,

Flashing green standby led light at the front panel is an indication that the unit waiting for the lamp to turn on. Since the lamp led light flashes, the unit sensed it already burned out.
Faulty lamp driver has a different error code which is "flashing of the standby light 5 times".
Your unit will back to normal operation again after the lamp replacement.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Is the red light flashing at first?
The unit may be going into protect mode. Lets hope it has done the job and the receiver has protected itself from failure.
Protect mode can result from speaker wires touching each other or the Amps2_bing.gif metal case. Check that first.
It can also be caused by unstable ohm loads if too many speakers2_bing.gif are connected to any of the outputs especially zone 2.
If you can remove all speaker wires and turn the unit back on. If it stays on, turn the volume down on the main zone and zone 2 if connected. Then reconnect speaker wires.

Tv went off while watching a program power standby red light blinks 6 times then pauses then repeats tried unplugging unit waiting a few minutes then replugged same results nothing. can anyone help me ?...


Here's an excerpt from the Sony Manual online. And the link - http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/webtree.pl?template=EN&mdl=KDF55XS955&content_id=68&category_id=11&problem_id=52

The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes three times
If your power/standby indicator is flashing in a pattern of three flashes, this may indicates that the lamp cover is not attached securely. Follow the directions in the Operating Manual under changing your lamp that related to closing and securing the Lamp Cover. Ensure that the Lamp Cover Door is securely fastened by tightening each screw.

The POWER/STANDBY (red) indicator flashes continously
If your power/standby indicator is flashing continuously, and the lamp cover has been secured, your TV may be in need of service.

The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up green (not flashing)
A sustained green light indicates your TV is on.

The POWER/STANDBY indicator is lit up red (not flashing)
A sustained red light from your power/standby indicator simply indicates that your TV is in standby mode. This shows you that your TV is ready to be turned on with the remote.

Is it the power light and not the lamp light? If the lamp light is flashing then replace the lamp.
