If the illumination LED flashes red, reset the TV
by disconnecting the mains lead for two
minutes, then turn on the TV.

Sony service centre with the number of times
the illumination LED flashes red (interval time is
three seconds). Disconnect the mains lead, and
inform your dealer or Sony service centre.
When the illumination LED is not flashing,
check the items as follows.
You can also refer to troubleshooting in the
