Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDP-57WS655 57" Rear Projection HDTV
We have good news and bad news ;)
The bad news is that the 10 blinks you see usually indicate a failure of the circuit boards and you will need a diagnostic visit from a technician to figure out exactly which IC or board has gone bad. It's probably something on the board that controls the magnets that control one of the CRT "guns".
The good news is that, if parts are still available for your unit, it's certainly cheaper to repair than to buy a new LCD LED TV, especially one as big as yours.
You should call Sony for the name of repair companies in your area. A diagnostic visit from their rep will usually run about $150 in the US. They'll take that amount off of the total bill if you go forward with the repair. Replacement of the video IC boards run about $250 each in parts, plus the initial $150 labor charge, for a total of $400 for a typical repair. If they can't fix it, you're only out the initial fee.
Beautiful TV, BTW. Good luck!
