I, as well, have been dealing with a dead, 6 red blinks kdf-70xbr950 issue since May of this year. I have replaced the G1 board twice (giving the benefit of a doubt that the 1st G1 was dead)...still the same 6 blinks. I also replaced the lamp ballast...still no-go. I keep hearing about this thermal fuse that is supposedly in my TV, but I cannot find it! I believe that it's there, but I just don't know what it looks like. Where is it EXACTLY?? Pics maybe of you have them???
I've taken the whole things apart practically. Optical block, q-box assembly, door sensor, blah blah...everything practically. Looked and researched it all...I think. I still cannot get the TV to fire up. No picture, no sound, just those damned 6 blinks.
I want to upgrade the thermal fuse(not sure how to upgrade a fuse, but whatever, maybe the answer will be obvious when I can fnd somewhere to buy one). The other thing is this...if 6 blinks is a +BOVP to the G1 board from the C2 board, maybe I should try replacing the C2 board????
Items to buy:
1st: Thermal Fuse
2nd: C2 board
3rd: Sledge hammer
Also, I have tech's service manual for the KDF-70XBR950/60XBR950 in PDF format. I uploaded it to mediafire. Here is the link: www DOT mediafire DOT com/?6vnwruzdczn8272
...hope it helps someone...I hope someone can give me some meaningful and effective direction on how to solve my problem.
