Sony kf-60XBR800 lamp

Hello,
I've been trying to fix my sony XBR and came across a post by you which more infomative than anything I've gotten from sony themselves. Last week the tv started flashing stanby and humming near the lamp, then the lamp light flashed and it turned off. I figured out how to get the lamp out and the filament was busted. I got a replacement and put it in today, and it is still flashing standby. Is the lamp driver the same as the lamp, what is the balast you were speaking of, and where do I get these part numbers? Or could it just be that I got a 3rd party lamp that the TV dosen't like (what some people are saying on the internet). Thank you in advance for your help.

Count the flashes of the standby light and the gap between the flashes as the tv is giving you the exact error code for the fault this way. Then check in the handbook and sony forums for the solution. Personally I have found ALL sony products to be like a spoilt rich kid, replace the parts with genuine sony, if you dont it mis-behaves itself in ways never seen before. Good luck.

No picture, funny noise


The funny noise is probibly the balist trying to strike the lamp. It will try several times to strike the lamp and if it is un successful, the lamp light will begin blinking on the front of the set. If so you have a bad bulb

It's either lamp driver sony p/n# 1-468-510-11 or the optical block (ballast) sony p/n# A-1603-611-A. You could test for 275v steady on the ballast, anything less and the optical block is the culprit.
