Hi there


I have recently started getting the illumination light showing red on the tv, but the screen itself is off. TV has been powered off with the remote and no light showed at that time. When turning back on, the light shows white as normal, then off and still no picture. Turn on again and it goes white, get the animated 'Android' display as it's restarting, then it works normally.


I found this on the Sony help pages for colour indication, but no mention of red (BTW, I'm not colour blind). I don't have a hard drive connected for recordings.


Any one else getting this? Not sure if it's relevant but it started around the same time as the 4K test transmissions in Auckland.

Do a proper power down, unplug it at the wall wait a minute then plug it back in.

Looks like this may have fixed the issue. Thanks
