i took the whole tv apart a few times looking for burns bulges etc and doing a little testing (in my limited ability) and the only thing that stopped the red led blinking was to short the thermostat fuse

http://www.wako-clinac.co.jp/product_en/cs-7_en/index.html

its under the large fan to the bottom right

the tv turned on straight away, picture is a little dark but i dont have the remote and it seemed to be getting brighter (on static haze as the tv is on the kitchen table) i switched it off after a few seconds just incase removing the thermostat did any damage.

anyway now i just have to get a new one and see if it runs right then.

where can i get this from, local repair guys here in nz say i need to buy an expensive kit with a fan and the thermostat and blah blah, when all i need is the little thermostat i believe.

appreciate any advice.

I can't seem to find anywhere to just buy the thermostat. Does it have any part numbers written on it?

yes it was part number 1-576-912-11 on a repair guide i found for sony to reapair this particular model for an issue with the lamp door warping from heat.

but the bag it came in says pn: a-1137-954-a

it cost me $40 NZD after calling around to a few tv repairs. most werent very helpful as they didnt want to supply parts only they wanted the labour too i guess. they wouldnt sell me the kit or the part without them doing the work.

tv started up fine and i have watched a few hours of tv on it today, picture looks fine.

glad to hear you got it going. I guess I just don't have much info built up for NZ TVs.

is it normal for a rear projection to be dark when you first turn it on? it takes about 20-30 seconds for the brightness to built up, im wondering if the lamp is going or if that sounds right, it looks good once that 20 seconds is over.
