Question about Sony KDF-E55A20 55 in. LCD Television
The manual shows nothing for the led flashing 6 times. It shows that three flashes indicated the lamp cover is loose. My T.V. is off, will not turn on. When power button is pressed it flashes green and then back to 6 red flashes. Any help? thanks
The thermocoupler fuse is what it is called by the way. i also saw that it could be the "power board" which could or could not be synonymous with the thermocoupler. anyway, again it is a common problem with these models. Scott Jackson, MS

I had this problem with my e55a20 and the same light sequence. the problem is simple. the fuse blew. it turns out the a20 and a10 models all have too simple a factory fuse and something about the placement of it being too close to the lamp which contributes to its overheating. if its still under warranty or not, call sony to get you in touch with the nearest repair facility for them to come housecall and replace it. the replacement is more advanced and will not go out again. that's what i was told. mine's worked fine ever since. the only bad thing was the waiting game in my case. sony support is a b**** to deal with mainly because they don't know anything about the sony products, obviously some outsourced phone support, but they CAN give you the number for your nearest service and repair facility. 1st i had to get the housecall to diagnose the problem, and my nearest facility is an hour away, my serviceman verified, the part was backordered, so i had to wait 3 more weeks or so and then schedule him back to my house. maybe you'll be luckier on the waiting game. when you finally do get the replacement fuse part, its only about 10 minutes for the repairman to replace it. good luck, Scott Jackson, MS
