Red light blinks 6 times tv won't come on.

I had a message show up, it said something about the vents being clogged and need to be cleared.  Then it asked if I wanted to change go high altitude.  After that, it shut down, has had a red light that blinks 6 times in a row.  I tried to power it up and it won't work.  I unplugged it all night long, still no change.

Also, make sure that the vents of the TV are clean. Place the TV in a well ventilated location.

Re: Red light blinks 6 times tv won't come on.

I bought the Sony Bravia Anroid W80C LED TV 5 months back. A red LED light blinks for 6 times and the tv does not turn on. I tried all the troubleshooting tips. Called up for sony customer care. They need 2 days for their engineer to look into the issue.


Is it a serious issue with the TV. Should i take a extended warrenty?
