Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XS955 60" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Goes off and on

My sony is 21/2 years old. Last week it started the following problem. The green light in front stays on, but the picture and sound go off and on every couple of minutes. It is getting worse. Is it the bulb?

    The picture and sound come on fine at power up, but after 30 seconds the picture and sound shut down for 30 seconds and this cycle repeats continually. When it powers down the Standby light (green) blinks constantly until the picture and sound come on. I did notice that I was starting to get a blue area in the lower left hand corner (facing the tv) of the screen about 6 months ago. In November it will be three years that I've owned this tv, bought it new out of the box.

    I posted my problem on Sept.12 that we were having with my 2 1/2year old Sony. The picture coming on and then sound and picture powering off every 20-30 seconds. I purchased a new bulb right from sony on line $250.00. It took all of 5 minutes for my husband to take old bulb out and replace with new. It now works perfectly.

I replaced the lamp today in my KDF-60XS955 and it has worked perfectly since then. I purchased the lamp from sony, costs more but I got the correct part. Might be your problem since I had similar symtoms. 30 green flashes and picture/sound cycled off and on about every thirty seconds. Good luck. Chrismickey

I have a sony kdf 50e-2000 the green light goes on then it goes to thr red blinking lamp light. I have no sound or picture. If I replace the lamp light will I get sound and a picture again?


Hi,
Yes, if you have not replaced the lamp since you purchased this TV.
Lamps usually last about 6000 hours.
I've seen lamps last much longer than 6000Hrs, it all depends on the usage.
Remove the lamp from the TV and do a visual inspection, see if there's a crack on the glass or the bulb.
If the TV is few years old then the Lamp may be bad.

DO NOT BUY the lamp from ebay

Good luck to you.

Hello,

It sounds like you have a monitor with a common problem. After a few years some LCD monitors will blow a power supply. The problem is caused by parts called capacitors overheating in the confined space of the monitor. If you are good at electronics repair/soldering you can usually fix the problem. Check out a few pictures on my web site www.ccl-la.com/badcaps.htm You can take the back cover off your monitor and look for the bad parts,replace any that look like the pictures and your monitor should work fine. The capacitors do need to be installed with the correct + and - connections, note the stripe on the old one and insert the new one the same way. If you don't want to try the repair yourself we offer a repair service for $35 plus shipping.

I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

If TV goes off and the led stays blinking, that is because the TV is going on protection.
Protection is a special diagnostic mode that starts when an internal fault has been detected.
If this happens erratically while you are watching TV, then parts that can commonly cause the problem are PSU board, main board or digital board, ballast board and converge board on DLP, inverter on LCD, low buffer and sustain boards on plasma.

Pictures goes black while power light blinks green


I have a 40 but i was having the same problem. It turned out to be my lamp. I got a brand new lamp from Projector Lamp Services (relampit.com) and my tv works fine now. Im pretty sure that the 40 and the 60 take the same lamp. You might want to give them a call.

TV won't turn on


When I try to turn the tv on, the green light flashes and eventually goes back to red. A very faint picture came across the tv a few times but didn't stay. The tv is only 3.5 years old.

My Sony comes on then both sound and picture goes black.


After being on a little while, the screen goes black (no audio as well) for 20 to 30 seconds. Green light stays on. Then, picture comes back on and takes a couple of seconds to get up to full brightness. About 5 seconds or so after the video comes back, the audio returns.

Until this morning, has only happened a couple of times a day, now happening more often. About 3 times in last 20 minutes.

KDF-E55A20 is about 3 years old.
