SOURCE: Red Light Flashing 6 times

When the lamp fails in this unit, often the thermal fuse opens. The error code is 6 blinks. To replace this part requires a great deal of deal of disassembly.

Please count Sony KDL-46V3000 standby light blinks as there would be interval of 3 seconds between blinks. Let me know how many times light blinks as its an error code.

SOURCE: After watching the TV this picture goes black, and

I have a KDF E42A10 which is LCD projection TV. If your's is a projection TV then the blinking red light means that the projection bulb needs to be replaced. The access door is on the lower right side, fairly staight forward to remove and bulb costs about $150( varrious sourses can be found online). If yours is a Grand Wega there is a major problem that Sony is denying responseblity for. Check out a report by Googling " MSNBC problems with Sony Grand Wega". Would like to get a clas action going for KDFs.If your TV is not a projection then disregard all of the above and I can't help with your problem.

SOURCE: Blank Screen

I had this problem on my 42" Philips. Just got it yesterday and worked fine on the tv stand. As soon as I mounted the TV to the wall via wall mount system, I had the exact same issue you did. Figured it out today.

The wall mount was putting pressure against the center of the back of the tv (tv set had a slightly rounded back plate, and the mount was a flat plate). As soon as I put spacers (part of the wall mount hardware set) between the wall mount braket and the tv so there was no contact except at the mounting holes, the tv worked fine.

My theory is the pressure pushed the tv back plate against some board components which caused them to overheat (no air flow); or put pressure on internal connectors. I dont know.

Hope this helps, may not apply to your situation.

SOURCE: Last night the screen started going dark, then went out, black

If still under warranty, I would suggest going that way as this is a bad matrix driver....

No picture


Sounds like you have a backlight problem. To verify this, turn on the set, dim the lights in the room, and shine a bright flashlight on the screen. If you see a faint picture you have a backlight fault. It could be as simple as a bad capacitor in the power supply, or a faulty inverter board, or in rare cases a bad backlamp.

Black screen


If its LCD get the room very very dark and turn on--with a flashlight near the screen look closely at the screen to see if you see a very faint image of the picture or not---Most LCD flatscreen's (not Plasma) use what is called a back light to light the screen--light source.

If a faint picture can be seen that way the light is not on.

Sound on but no picture


Is the screen pitch black or a blue/grayish ? Dim the lights in the room, and shine a bright flash light on the panel. Turn on the set, if you see a faint picture, you have a backlight issue

I have a Protron LCD 26" TV model#LT26CIPI...The tv was working great turned it off on night and in the morning turned it back on to sound but no picture just a Black screen...when you change channels


Since its a LCD take a flashlight and have the room as dark as possible and with the light look to see if a very very faint image of the picture can be seen or not---many of these sets use a "back light" for the brightness and if that's not on.......

Try turning off different lights near the room or in the room that it is in. Our tv does that if the overhead light in our bedroom is on, it's a room right next to our living room.

Double check all of your connections. It appears the video cable is not plugged in completely. Try another monitor if possible to see if the computer is actually outputting video.

Ideal settings for Samsung LN-T 4234H


sure, lcd tvs need to be tweeked depending on the light in the room the darker the worse the picture. so try this
from standard:
picture: 85 to 95 %
brightness: 45% or adjust the black of the video to the black of the pilar bars to equilize them.
color: 32 to 38% or until the flesh tones are not so hot
sharpness: low 10%
tint: always to center
color temp: cool1
back lamp ( if avalible) low when lights are dim, high when lights are bright.
the problem with LCD is they don't look so good with dark sceens. the contast ratio is very low. natively 3000:1 aas compaired to plasma or other direct view TVs. the LCD is back lite and the thin materal of the LCD can not completely block the back light from coming thru. there for the complete "black screen" is illuminated "blue". the best thing is to keep the lights on bright in the room for the best picture.
