    Mine does a similiar dance. It cuts off and on all day. I can't find where my husband put the manual. If I should just replace the bulb, can you recommend where I can purchase one?

On my KDF-55E2000 five red blinks = Bad Lamp Ballast. Still looking for a new one. Try ShopJimmy.com they also have a youtube channel. Good Luck!

Sony KDF-60XS955 LCD Projection HD Grand Vega. Turns itself off every 30 secs or so. Flashes green light 32/33 times. Comes back on with picture but no sound. Then sound comes on at green flash 37 and...


Those 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.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

Tv will come on but shuts itself back off


Sounds like it just needs a new lamp.
The way to tell is the lights in front:
green blinking as TV reboots = bad lamp
red three blinks = door switch
red four blinks = bad fan
6 or 9 blinks = bad thermal fuse

IT TURN OFF ITSELF RIGHT AFTER TURN ON GREEN


Hi,
If the Lamp red light is blinking then replace lamp, replacement procedure is written in user manual and its easy.
If standby/ power red light is blinking then please count its blinking and post here. It is an error code that has info about problem in specific section of tv.
You will see 3 seconds long pause between blinks so count pause to pause.

Do a reset and see what happens

While holding down the reset button on the remote
Press the power button on the tv
(The tv will turn itself off the back on)
Now release the reset button

It sounds like the lamp needs replaced.

Sony kdf-60xs955 picture but no sound


Check your TV menu and see if the internal speakers are turned off. Sony opts to cut sound to the internal speakers when you have an external audio amp hooked up for sound, hopefully for obvious reasons. Most audio amp problems inside the TV will result in 9 blinks of the red power light and the TV failing to turn on. If that doesn't help, you may need to have the set repaired.

What the @*#@*#


The 4 blink fault code means one of the fans is faulty or the H4 module in the TV.
