My SONY 60" tv just cut off the other day and the power light is blinking RED 6 times. Any advice ?? I called Sony they recommended 3 or so service companies. Brandsmart will come out for $300 min.

Let me know what you think.

well i can help you and not for that amount first how old is your tv and have you replaced the lamp before do you here any weird sounds coming out side of your tv
it sounds like it could just be a lamp issue but we should trouble shoot first :D

HI,in order to help you ,you will need to tell me the symptoms.If you hear clicking or like something trying turn on most likely its the ballast (the board that powers the lamp) If you don't and tv is between 2-4 yrs most likely it's the lamp that needs to be replaced.You can do it yourself.Here's the lamp you need http://cgi.ebay.com/XL-2200-PHILIPS-LAMP-REPLACEMENT-FOR-SONY-TV_W0QQitemZ220418846939QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_Defa ultDomain_0?hash=item3351fcb0db&_trksid=p4634.c0.m14.l1262 Here's instructions: http://guides.fixyourdlp.com/sony/XL-2200.php Good luck and God bless you!
