Please make sure lamp cover is fixed properly in its position after lamp replacement as it has to press a safety switch located nearby lamp cover.
3 times red blink problem is related with that lamp cover safety switch only.
Hope this will help.
Thanks.

Sony KDS-60A2000 - no sound.


If you are lucky, a new lamp will restore the sound as well otherwise you may require a new ballast unit as when the lamps explode, the supply board sometimes destroys itself.

Was watching TV, heard a pop and the screeen went black. Now when I turn it on, the pwoer light blinks green but their is no picture or audio. The light then starts blinking red


Hi,
Is is standby light blinking red or any other light? Let me know how many times red standby light blinking after three seconds long pause to provide you helpful info.
It seems pop sound was due to broken lamp, please check lamp inside tv and if it is broken, replace it to solve tv problem.
Hope this will help.
Thanks.

I heard a pop and screen wet black. red lamp


Lamp inside TV is broken and requires replacement. Pop sound was its breaking sound.
Lamp replacement procedure is written in user manual, pretty easy.
Please buy Sony original lamp for TV safety and avoid aftermarket/ cheap lamp.
Let me know if you need to download user manual copy.
Thanks.

No Picture, Power light Blinking 3 times then repeats


3 times blink shows lamp cover is removed or not installed properly on TV.
Please take out lamp inside TV and check, seems its broken as you heard loud pop.

Tv went out after loud pop and has clicking noise does not turn on


If you have a Sony DLP, then the loud pop you heard is your lamp.  The lamps last approx. 4K-6K viewing hours.  Read your manual for replacement part number to reorder and very simple to replace yourself.

LAMP


Replace the lamp. In rare cases, the lamp power supply or lamp ballast may also need replacing. But, replace the lamp first, and use an original Sony lamp not a cheap aftermarket replacement. If this helps, please be sure to rate the fix! Thanks!
