Sony SXRD KDS 60A6000 - 5 blinks

Hello,

I have a friend who has a Sony SXRD KDS 60A6000 which is giving the 5 red blinks when powering it on.

I have tried the following:
1. Verified Fan is running
2. Replaced Ballast
3. Replaced Bulb/housing
4. Unplugged unit, held power for 30 seconds, left unplugged for 15 minutes
5. Disconnected / reconnected all connectors around Power block
6. Powered unit back on - still getting the 5 red blinks
7. I am getting 119V AC at the outlet, and where the cord connects at the G board
8. I am getting less the .1V on the output from the G board to the Ballast
9. I pulled the fuse next to the power cord on the G board and verified continuity with Ohmmeter showing 0.00Ohms

Would the lack of Voltage drop at the ballast connector indicate a bad G board, or is there a sensor that would indicate the Ballast is bad that would cause the board not to send power to the ballast?

Any suggestions on what to try next?

Ok. Where did you buy the lamp and how much did it cost?

Cheap lamps are the number one mistake that people make. They just don't work. If you are lucky enough to get it to fire then it might last a few hours, days, weeks. Strongly suggest that you buy an original lamp from Sony or http://www.dlplampsource.com/

Where did you get the ballast?

Are you sure about the voltage from the G board to the ballast? How are you measuring it? The meter needs to be set to DC volts. You should get 400V.

Can you measure the other voltages on the G board connector CN6902

I gave the 60A3000 to my in-laws, and when the bulb went out, I got the generic. It worked for about a week, and then went out. Bought the $85 bulb, and it's doing great.

This guy had a similar experience as you:
