    We have the same problem -- called Sony direct after repairman advised via phone the "bluetube" is shot and could not get. Sony said they would send a blue tube for $149. but cannot find repair person to install. Had 2nd repairman look at tv yesterday -$125.00 service fee and advised all 3 tubes are shot and it's a common problem. The cost of repair outweighs the value of the tv. Repairman said Sony is aware of problem and to contact them to see if they will compensate some of the cost -- waiting for a call back from them to see what they will do. This tv is only 3 1/2 years old.

Have a jumbo remote with no code search button also only programs 3 devices tv'vcr&dvd


I had the same problem Johny. Everybody wants to tell you how to program the one with the CODE SEARCH button. Here\'s how to do the one without. Press and hold the item button you wish to program (TV, DVD etc anyone of them can be used for anything) until the LED lights and stays on. Turn the item on manually and point the remote at it and push the power button. When the gadget turns itself off, immediately press the item button again. You can recall the code by pushing the item button until the light turns on again and then press DISP. Now push the number buttons (random is OK). As you hit the correct number of the code, the LED will flash until the four digit code is entered then the LED will go off. You may wish to try for more codes as some function better than others that just simply "work".

My Panasonic PT-60Dl54J tv shut itself off and the power button is now flashing red 6 times. What has happened, how do I fix it?


This is straight from the service manual (I'm not sure what the problem is but it sounds serious):

8.2. Power LED Flashing timing table
When an abnormality has occurred, the protection circuit operate and cuts the power supply. At this time, the defective line can be
identified by the number of flashes (red) of the power led indication at the front of the unit.
NUMBER OF FLASHES CIRCUIT MICRO PIN
1 LOAD SHORTAGE 92
2 OVER VOLAGE 93
3 FAN SOS 94
4 MAIN 3.3V 88
5 LAMP DISABLE 61
6 GC3FM-IIC IIC
7 GC3FS-IIC IIC
8 GC3I-IIC IIC
9 COLOR WHEEL STOP 110
