Customer Question

I have a SONY TV KDS-R50XBR1(50 IN) that is 9 years old but has been working great all these years. Lately some very odd occurs once in a while, the tv turn offs by itself and burst into a loud noise and we have to run to unplug it from the wall. Sometimes does it every couple of days and sometimes it does it two or three times in a day on even more frequently. After we plug it back it works fine for hours or days...

Hello, my name is*****'ll be happy to assist you. - Is the loud sound look like fan noise?- Does power light on TV turn to red and flash in specific pattern when TV turns off?Thanks.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
no fan noise (I have replaced the main fan several times as well as the lamp) and power light turns red and doesn't flash

This is odd, can you remove lower back of TV to get an idea of loud noise location in TV?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have removed the whole back panel to replace the fan some time ago but when the noise comes on is from the speakers and is very loud and disturbing
