Thermal Fuse

Hi Tommy, it sounds like the inverter board is going out. Depending on age of television, it would be worth getting an estimate from service company. Try and recall if there has been any power outages, power surges, electrical strikes, etc. that may have caused board to fail. If hit by lightning, home owners insurance will pay a portion of repair bill.
Hope this helps,

That is an error code.

This is an indication that you have a problem on the power supply section or on the load because of the following reasons :

1. Over Voltage - the regulator might be cycling on over voltage due to lack of load.

2. Over Current Protection - excessive load or faulty power supply cycling will

trigger the over current protection circuit.

3. Leaky Capacitor - a dried up main filter capacitor or other filter capacitor in the low voltage power supply that is producing an out-of-regulation condition. A bad filter capacitor on the output of a series regulator may result in excessive/drop of voltage that causes the unit not to power up unless isolated.

4. A problem with the microcontroller, relay or its driver, or standby power supply.

I've suspect that you have #3 problem on the power supply section.

This is not DIY and quite technical so I've advice you to look for a qualified technician or send it to repair shop to isolate the problem.

But first check if your unit is under warranty then avail it because the manufacturer of your unit will fix it for free or with a little charge only.

Thanks for using fixya.

Please rate my help.

Sony model KDF55WF655 blinking light 6 red flashes,no picture,no sound....
I just replaced my thermal fuse for $4.80 plus shipping handling.Took me 30 minutes to fix and 30 minutes to get dust out of TV.Take off the back of the tv about 8 screws,then remove the fan housing on the right hand side about 4 screws.If you have the new fuse you will know which wire it is ..grey and white.I found it easy to get to the other end through the front panel of the tv only 2 screws ,remove front panel and then remove cover on projection bulb and you will see the other end of the fuse clipped on.Remember to unplug tv. TV is working excellent now .
Thanks to everyone on this website.I have pictures if anyone needs them to repair it.

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers for spare part supplies as required.

The information is normally free of charge.

Or try ebay

I hope this helps.

IF THE PICTURE AND SOUND COMES BACK,,,CHECK THE LIGHT BULB IF IT IS FOGGY IT MUST BE REPLACED.

THIS IS HOW I FIX MY SONY TV WITH FIVE BLINKING RED POWER LIGHT.

PULL OUT LAMP - FIND THE INSTRUCTION ON LINE (SONY WEBSITE OR YOUTUBE) EASY

THERE ARE TWO METAL CONNECTION TABS (on top of the lamp) ON THE LAMP. CLEAN THESE TWO METAL FLAT TABS. THESE two tabs MAKE CONNECTION TO THE THERMAL FUSE. IF IT IS DIRTY IT WILL NOT MAKE CONNECTION to the fuse.
CLEAN YOU'RE LAMP WITH A VACUUM. GET ALL DUST OUT.. CLEAN OUT THE TV...THE FAN SUCKS IN DIRT. THIS WILL FIX many ISSUEs. like over heating! dog hair, dust, gets sucked inside the TV by the FAN....hmmmm

ALSO DO THIS TO ALL YOU'RE ELECTRONICS THAT HAS A FAN.

(I FEEL ALL FANS ON ELECTRONICS SHOULD BE REVERSED) but i am sure there is a stupid reason that they want the fan to **** air inside the electronics. Like hmm

THIS cleaning SHOULD BE DONE EVERY 6 MONTH

Check the thermal fuse part# 1-910-006-44. You can verify this by jumping the fuse and the lamp should come on (it is located under the lamp)

I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV.


Here was the problem. My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired of course) and found four bulged capacitors on the PSB. Many major electronics companies Philips/Magnavox, Sony, Panasonic, and others were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 years instead of 10-20. The capacitors fail prematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in all sorts of devices and cause a wide range of failure problems.


Here are some options for you.


1. Have it fixed by a professional $$$$$$$??????? (Is it under warranty?)

Remember, TVs CONTAIN HIGH VOLTAGE AND CAN KILL YOU! Do this at your own risk.

2. Open your TV and find PSB. (The board that the power cord plugs into) Check for faulty caps. If you find some (bulged or leaking) bad caps replace the entire board. The entire board costs around $250 right now because they are in high demand right now. They can be found online. I would definitely shop around though.


3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill.

Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourself it will save you hundreds.


This may be your problem. If you determine that it might be.

I have a Tip/How TO tutorial on this site that may also help. It gives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is your board you are in luck. Here is the Link: Fixing the Philips Turns/shuts off on its own problem. I'm working on uploading pictures to help guide people though the process as well. Let me know if I can do anything to help.


Hope this helps and if it does please rate it accordingly. Good luck.
