It is normal for it to flash for about 10 minutes after turning it off, while it cools down the bulb. You're not supposed to try turning it on during this time. If it is flashing constantly, it is telling you the bulb needs replacing.

Is the red light blinking or steady?
Have you tried to reset the tv?

System Reset
If the TV will not respond to either the remote control or the front panel controls and/or will not power Off, press the SYSTEM RESET button with a pointed item like the end point of a paperclip. The TV will turn Off and the TIMER light will flash quickly for about one minute. When the TIMER light stops flashing, you may again turn on the TV. The changes you made the last time the TV was on before you used the SYSTEM RESET button may be lost, however, the changes that were previously saved are not lost.

Try this and let me know.
Good Luck.

What does red flashing light on front of tv mean?


It may be the lamp light indicating a lamp has failed--model listed here does use a lamp.

Also look at the blinks to see if a specific number then a pause and repeats, if that then that is a error code.

Red light and 2 green lights on front panel on.


This is an error code it means the TV is in protection mode. Which means it has detected a problem and is preventing power up so not to cause further damage. Error codes are generally 2 numbers 1 seq of flashes a pause and a second sequence of flashes. Most common problems for LCD are Video logic / Main input board or the power supply. For more info and possible solutions post your make and model.

Sony Wega 55" Replaced Bulb TV still does not work


Hello, please check how many times the red light flashes. If it is 3 times this means that the lamp cover is not fastened securely. If the red light flashes 5 times this means that the lamp driver is defect. If you need more help please advice
