Question about Sony KDF-E42A10 42 in. LCD Television
Most likely your thermal sensor has failed this is on the side of the lamp holder inside the tv the light engine has to be pulled back in order to access it, not an easy task to get to this. You might try putting a fan behind it and cool it to see if this helps. The other cause of the code is that the LCd panel has gone bad. If you find this to be the case, If you have any warranty on the product, now is the time to use it, a replacement panel is about 80% the cost of the set new. You can also as a last resort if you don't have warranty to contact Sony again and tell them the issue and find out if they will cover this repair. There is a clas action suit from some on issues very similar to this. I am not sure if this is still open but it is worth the try. go here n file a claim many have gotten there product fixed or replaced for free. http://www.sonysxrdtvclassaction.com/main/maillist.sfx.
That is what the 6 blinking red light is pointing to.

Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in
the TV. The self-diagnostic function of the TV will cause the STANDBY light to
blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the
STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue.
examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need
1 blink / 2 blinks / 5 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set.
3 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. The set will need to be serviced to allow a technician to determine the specific issue that needs to be repaired. If the power light flashes three times in sequence in a Lamp TV, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
4 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a back light or lamp power problem.
6 blinks: - This indicates that there is some kind of audio problem with your set.
7 blinks: - This indicates that there is a temperature problem with your set. Please check to make sure that the air vents on the sides and back of the set are not blocked or clogged and there is adequate ventilation around the television. We recommend that you check and clean the vents periodically to make sure the set receives adequate air flow. If the problem continues, the set will need to be serviced.
8 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a video-related problem with your set. If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.
the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from
the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet.
If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge
protector and not the television.
the issue continues to occur, service may be required.
