Sony Grand Wego - Sound but No Picture

I have had this tv for three years with no trouble. I blew a fuse the other night and after switching it back on everything worked well. When I whent to turn tv off that night when I powered down picture wnet away but Video 1 remained on the screen. Turned on and off again from the tv itself. My problem is the following day when I turned the tv on there was sound but no picture at all. Checked connections with DirecTv and seems okay. Unplugged to try and reset the tv (as described by Sony) but no luck. I thought my cat unplugged something but I think that is wishful thinking. There is no lamp light in the front so I don't think that is my problem. Have you come across this problem or have any suggestions?

    The model number is KDF-E50A10

    The only light in the front is the "on" light and the blinking "stand by" light that seem to be functioning normally. I wonder if it would benefit me to unplug everything that is going through DirecTv, DVD, and VCR and see if I can get a snowing picture just by running it directly to the outlet. Thank you for your reply and for your assistance.

    Thank you for your reply - blinking lite is not continuous. Seems to blink about 8 times before tv will power up. I will have to count them and get back to you later because I am not at home right now. It also does this when you turn the tv off. Seems to be an initial standby mode while tv is turned on or off. The blinking is not a new symptom and has always done this.

    Thanks!

    It definatley is not an on and on and on blinking light. I'll have to confirm the amount of blinks and get back to you perhaps around lunch time. I tried playstation hoping to divert going through DirecTv in case the wiring was loose or dislodged. Of course there was sound but again no picture.

Before I commit myself, I need a little more info. First, what is the model number? Second, in the front there should be a standby light. does it blink at all? It should blink in a repeating pattern. If so, please post that too.

Thanks,
Dan

    I have examined the owner's manual for this set and if you are getting a blinking standby light, it should be blinking a code. All indications for lamp replacement etc. are not present based upon your description of the problem. Can you count the blinks please? If it is just a continual blink, that too is good to know. It sounds like that is the case here. Can you confirm that please?



    Thanks,

    Dan

    Close. The light will blink for a while before the picture snapps on. That is normal. The blinking now should be a count followed by a few second pause then the count again, on and on and on. The 8 is important if that is the correct count. If it is, the problem is in the power supply and can easily be fixed. Update this and I'll look up the parts in the meantime.

My sony 50" wega just quit. No picture , no sound , no nothing ?


Hi,
If you see standby red light blinking on Tv front with 3 seconds interval then count its blinks from pause to pause and let me know, its an error code.
And if TV does not even show standby light then check fuse in power supply that would be blew off for some reason, replace it.
Still problem? let me know with exact model number of your Sony TV.
Thanks.

Tv turns off and on


The first time my lamp needed replaced, the red light came on as well. This time my tv did the same thing, but after talking to my tv repair man he thought it was the lamp. He said that if you use your tv often then the lamp probaly needs to be changed after two or three years. I replacedmy bulb and it corrected the problem and I MUCH BETTER PICTURE.

Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XS955 60 in. Rear Projection popped and turned off


the reason your lamp blew so quickly is the the lamp fan has become cloged with dust. this is a known problem by sony and I have done 15 or so of the up grades needed. first look at the lamp door is it discolored and warped. if so have a tech order the up grade kit which includes a new door, siraco fan, thermal fuse, and lamp. the return fan may also be needed. also some service menu changes need to be made with the fan voltages of fan 1 and fan2.
