Sony kds-r50xbr1 turns itself off and then green light blinks 52 times
I bought Sony tv kds-r50xbr1 2 years ago. Recently, it started turning itself off and then power/standby green light blinks for about 52 times and then turns itself on for about 2 min. Then it starts all over again
Any advise on how to fix this issue

Just replace its Lamp and procedure is written in user manual of KDS-R50XBR1 F93087600
XL-5100 LAMP BLOCK Lamp is available in Sony Accessories and price is $250 Always buy Sony original lamp for good picture in TV and avoid aftermarket / cheap lamps that can cause damage of TV circuits. Click Sony Support to download Instruction Manual copy, if you want it.

Check the fan that cools the bulb. It is directly behing the bulb. It should turn on when the power comes on. It apparently has a safety to protect your tv(and home). mine is in the process of going out. looking for online solutions as we speak.
I too have a Sony KDS-R60XBR1 tv and the issue that you are experiencing is due to one of your fans in the rear of the tv is not working. The tv automatically shuts off in protective mode. Make sure the POWER/STANDBY light is blinking and not the lamp light below it. Is the power/standby blinking 4 times in red? If, yes then its a fan that needs to be replaced. If its the lamp light blinking then you need to replace the lamp. The lamp is easy to replace by ordering the lamp either from Sony for $250 or find it cheaper for approx. $150 from other DLP sources and replace youself by following your manual. I hope this helps you.
