Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XBR950 60" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Tv will not power up - makes a weird noise and red light blinks constantly.

Our 3 year old Grand WEGA 60 in will not turn on.  The fans start and it makes a weird noise, then the red lights blink until I freak out and turn the power off.  Any help?  Thanks.

It sounds like a bad lamp, a bad lamp driver or a combination of the two. Be aware that sometimes a bad lamp driver will blow a perfectly good lamp, so if you're not sure which is causing the problem, replacing BOTH would probably be the best course of action

Tv won't turn on. It blinks green then red.


Hi,
Question shows tv is Sony KDF-60WF655.
Green light blinks when tv gets prepare to fire up lamp, check internal circuits then show picture on front screen.
Red light blinking shows some kind of internal problem during circuit check and protection got activated upon some failure.
Count the red light blink as you will see 3 second long pause and post it here to diagnose what section of tv got problem.
Did you replaced its lamp in last 2-3 years?
Thanks.

3 blinks is a lamp cover error, did you make sure that the lamp cover is screwed in tight? Also check the lamp cover for deformity, there is a problem with your model where the set over heats and melts the lamp cover a little causing it not to make connection with the lamp cover switch. Let me know if you find either of these problems? If not we can troubleshoot a little further.

Power light keeps blinking Red and TV will not turn on


Is the light blinking constantly or is there a long pause then more blinking. If constant check the lamp door switch . Usually it is broken or jammed. If you jumper it and the set comes on that it. 4 blinks is bad fan.

Sony grand wega KF60DX100 Won't Power on


THE RED LIGHT THAT BLINKS IS IT THE LAMP BOX THAT THE RED LIGHT BLINKS IN OR THE STAND BY LIGHT THAT BLINKS ? IF ITS THE LAMP BOX THAT BLINKS THEN YOUR LAMP HAS BLOWN AND NEEDS REPLACED YOU CAN FIND THE PART # FOR YOUR T.V. FOR A NEW OR REFURBISHED LIGHT IN YOUR OPERATING MANUAL AND WITH THE PART # BUY A NEW ONE OFF EBAY,ALSO YOUR OWNERS MANUAL WILL GIVE YOU STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO REPLACE IT AS THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH PROJECTION T.V.'S IF ITS THE STAND BY LIGHT THAT BLINKS I NEED TO KNOW HOW MANY TIMES IT BLINKS AS THAT'S A SELF DIAGNOSTICS CODE THAT YOUR T.V. IS GIVING FOR THE PROBLEM AND FOR SONY THERESE NO CODE FOR 1 BLINK OF THE STAND BY LIGHT.

Sony Trinitron WEGA won't turn on


6 blink error is either a power supply (g2 board) or a blown thermal fuse. if it came back on, its not the thermal fuse so you would need a new g2 board. if it blinks 5 times, you need a new ballast (lamp driver)

Dead sony


The $1200 was for the lcd engine not the lamp. You should change the lamp. The buzz is the power supply trying to light the lamp.
