My sony 65Ws500 model about 4 months ago it started turning the screen all blue as soon as I turned it on. it stayed blue for about an hour then come back on normal now when I turn it on it will shut down and I get a small red light flashing 8 time then pauses and does it again 8 time then pauses then again and so on. I took back panel off. I turn on tv The blue bulb gets very bright and the green and red projection bulb goes out and now it shuts off. and the blinking starts it a code flashing but don't know the code to find out whats wrong. would someone help if u can been wife and I laid off from work 3 months now cant afford tech prices on our employment. wife and I has 2 little girls to raise. along with the rest of u parent out there and one getting employment cant offord repairs. Thank U. Adams01220@yahoo.com
do this. press and hold device and menu button on set for 5 seconds. this will retrieve a 2 digit error code .. the led will flash the first digit and pause the flash second digit. This unit is known to have capacitor problems on the power board. getting to these capacitors involves taking alot apart. let me know error codes and we can continue troubleshooting
I believe that you have a rear projection TV where the light from a powerful halogen light bulb is focused onto a micro-prism viewing screen through a Liquid Crystal Video Chip.
The light-bulbs have a finite life, degrade with time and eventually burn out. It is likely that you have a burned out light bulb.
Replacement light bulbs range from about $150 to $250 from the dealer, depending on the exact model.
The bulbs are somewhat cheaper by mail order from the Internet, if you can wait that long. Also, some bulbs are available without the integral mounting bracket, further reducing the cost, but skilled hands and careful handling is required.
Never touch the glass of a TV light bulb with your bare fingers. The bulb runs very hot, and residual sweat from your fingers may cause th bulb to crack and explode. (use gentle white cloth gloves when handling the new bulb.
I believe that bulb just burned out on its own, and this has nothing to do with your attempt to connect a DVD player.
On my TV (Sony 60"), a flashing green light indicates a normal power-up/ bulb warm-up cycle. If the bulb fails to respond, the TV will detect a bad bulb and shut off again.
Severl things could be wrong, first is the lamp attpting to start, this you can usaly hear it will sound like little sparks and happen tree times before the set shuts down. If thats the case change the Lamp, second the five volt line could be dead, this is cause by defective capacitors in the power supply and this prvents the DMD board from comming up, with this problem you will not here the lamp trying to fire. Third it may have detected some other fault and shuts the set down, These sets by the way the status light in front blink can direct you to the problem, so unplug for 10 min. then try to turn it on Write down what the L.E.D's do and repost here
