Sony tv kds-r60xbr1 has yellow tint
Sorry to hear this, but your optical block has failed. Sony replaced a ton of these under warranty and then extended the warranty on these SXRD sets so they could replace many more. They even replaced the sets with LCD sets after a class action law suite. This was a "black eye" for Sony TVs and they stopped making the SXRD sets. Your set is vintage 2006 and there is no longer a warranty. You could replace the optical block with a rebuilt one, but the cost would be about the same as getting a new 60" LCD. I would suggest you do the latter.

Fuse replacement for KDS-R60XBR1
The info does not tell what is wrong---set has more than one fuse and if dead the set may still have lights on the front that light or blink (red one) in a specific sequence--5 blinks, pause and 5 blink etc.
A bit more info is needed to assist you.

KDS-R60XBR1 AKB circuit fault
AKB is auto kine bias---means a problem related to one of the three picture tubes or the boards connected to each---if it showed in error buffer with a number to the right that is the number of times the error has been detected.

Red light blinks 3 times
Yes, there were and are known issues--"lamp door not properly closed" means that but something else.
What happens is door is warped from heat from lamp----with door off set will not function due to the safety switch----want to know if switch/door are the real problem?
Engage switch with something not metal and try to turn set on--if it and lamp come on do not look at lamp directly----do not operate with level bypassed and door removed as heat can warp the outer plate if no door.
If it comes on door is the problem---look at it edgewise---if warped a little the tab on back of door that engages the lever does not do its job.
If does not come on with lever engaged something else is wrong.
There was a recall that has ended regarding this---some were so bad they melted the lamp housing and even fused the front door of the lamp to the plastic around it.
Let me know what you find.

Best way to test exhaust fan in tv
The set may have more than one fan but---look on the fan as usually the voltage it uses is indicated--if so and removed apply the same voltage to it with it removed--either it runs or not.
There should be a service manual available online free for this set--the schematic will show what voltage is used....
that error code is just a general indication of what is wrong--if fan not getting voltage, not getting turned on, or bad.
