That sounds like a fault code coming from your Plasma. Some of them have alarms that go off when say it's overheating, Fans don't turn, the panel has sensed a crack in it. These are random as I don't have the fault code for that particular model. There is a reset sequence of buttons while you turn it on to reset the alarm. I would contact the manufacturer. to see what those fault codes mean. If something minor you can do the reset alarm and watch for a short 2-3 hrs. but will need to be taken in to be serviced. If you can reset it and turns on then you know your power supply is good.

We have a 2007 Sony Bravia 46" KDL-46VL130. There is not sound or picture. When we power it on the green light comes on blinking once and then the red light blinking once and then the green light stays on....


Does the front light stays green ? Or goes back to red ? The back-light going on/off maybe the problem, but it shoul return with a red blinking led (4 times ?) and if so it can be a power inverter problem.

Lamp replaced and the set doesn't come on.


Please make sure lamp cover is fixed properly after lamp replacement.
3 blinks shows that lamp cover is either not put back or not fixed properly in its position.
Thanks.

Sony KDF-E50A10 No Picture


4 times blink error shows that any FAN is not running in TV as there are 4 fans in this TV.
Please check fan connectors and make sure all are plugged securely.

I can't get my tv to turn on... nothing but blinking red light


Dont know if this will work for you or not, but my brother gave me his because of the same problem. It would power up and a green light would come on, then after 10 -15 seconds it would change to a red blinking light. I plugged a usb cable into the service port on the side and left the other end unplugged. Then plugged the tv back into the power. i took a small screwdriver and ran across the contacts in the end of the usb cable until both the red light and the green lights came on. I did this several times listening fot the clicking noises in the TV. after doing this for approx 20 seconds, i pressed the power button and the TV worked fine. 5 days now and no problems. Only thing I can think is I somehow reset the software and now it is working fine. Hope some of you can figure this out and give it a try. if the TV is just sitting, you have nothing to lose
