SOURCE: KDF-E60A20 Red Light Flashing 6x

a 6x blinking error code is usually the thermal fuse located above the lamp housing on the light engine. probable cause of failure is clogged fan located in same area or poor ventilation because set is to close to wall [unit requires minimum of 4 inches of clearance]. part # is 1-910-023-93. another possibility but less likely is the gm board which drives the lamp voltage. part # is a1109407a.

My Sony Bravia TV - Model #: kdl-52z5100 no longer powers on. There's a red light that blinks twice whenever I attempt to power it on. Please help

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

Red light blinks six times. When I hit power button green light stays on for a few seconds, turns off the on for a few more. Then goes back to pattern of red light blinking six times.

the kill switch is open ensure the lamp cover presses firmly on the kill switch when u close the lamp chamber door the red light will stop blinking and u can now turn the tv on

I have a Sony KF 50 WE 610 projection screen TV. It has worked perfectly since I bought it six or seven years ago. This morning I turned it on and the sound came on for a second, but then the sound went...

Five consicutive blinks at a time and the stops and again blinks five; is its self diagonosis procedure. All modern Sony sets has this function included in its circuits. If the system control IC inside it detect any fatal fault inside its circuits system, it will give a signal to its power control unit to shut it down its high voltage outputs to protect the other components from further damage. In your set; as Sony describes; I quotes:-
  • Five blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.
  • Actually the components marked in numberes will not be the same as in your TV. But the fault will it be.
    If you have enough knoledge in electronics and have a concept of soldering and have a good quality multimeter; youreself can do this work by home. OK

    Power Button Blinking Red

    The number of blinks, called error codes, is crucial in determining what's wrong with your unit.. In this case the color wheel is faulty and needs to be replaced. In that unit the color wheel assembly is Panasonic p/n# TXFEN01RP4S and is available from many sources for about $390.00 plus shipping.
    There are some companies like Tri-State-Module that have taken-up rebuilding color wheel assemblies but I can't be certain that this is one of the brand/models they support. If you can have it rebuilt you might save about half the price of a new one...
    For your edification in the future here are the blink codes for your Tv:
    1 | Load Shortage
    2 | Over Volage
    3 | Fan Sos
    4 | Main 3.3v
    5 | Lamp Disable
    6 | Gc3fm-Iic
    7 | Gc3fs-Iic
    8 | Gc3i-Iic
    9 | Color Wheel Stop

    If I can help any other way just let me know...
    Good Luck!

    42" Sony LCD Projection

    the manual indicates a six blink is "low B error, no"DD 6V" output from "g" board" the "g" board in a sony is usuall the main power supply board. the center pin of "D1634" is where the +6V comes from, don't short the pins while checking. good luck
