Picture COmes and Goes

My Sony Grand Wega picture comes and goes. It was moved three days ago but was working fine. The room i is in is hotter - could it be overheating? or dust in the vents?

    I have a RGB input for satellite and oen for Wii and one for DVD/Video. When the picture goes out it is for all sources/inputs and no manual display.

    i have the same problem since I moved into my new house except that my green light stays constant. The picture and sound goes on and off about every 15 minutes though. It was moved with love since i am probably still paying for the damn thing...it's only a year and a half old!

    My TV is doing the same thing only more frequently. I have had it for a little over 2 years. Could it be the bulb finally going out?

    OK, I want you to pull the lamp out and examine it. I'm curious if the reflector is very shiny like a mirror or dull. When was the last time you replaced the lamp? The lamps can be kind of fragile so maybe it got knocked around when you moved the TV. Also. when the pic goes out, does the green light stay on steady, flash, or does the red light come on? I know these are lots of questions to ask, but I need the answers to help narrow down the cause.

    What do you have connected to the TV? What sources (cable, DVD, etc) and how are they connected (composite, component, HDMI)? Does the picture disappear on all sources, including the tuner? Can you get a manu display or OSD when the pic disappears?

Hello,
I had a unit before and
Found the socket of the G1 board plug in incorrectly.
The holding clip was not inserted correctly
May be it happened while moving?

Hi,

Most likely you have bulb failure. First step in troubleshooting is "Change the Lamp or Bulb". Lightning, power line bumps and collisions with vacuum cleaners can all shorten lamp life. Rough handling in shipment can also happen without your knowledge.

+90% of all Sony LCD Rear Projector "No Picture or Intermittent Picture" faults are related to bulb failure.

If new lamp does not improve the situation, then hands-on troubleshooting by someone that has parts and knows how the unit works is the only practical remedy.

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.

TV Picture Goes Black


I had the same exact problem.
I removed the bulb and cleaned it. There is a small screen at the top of the bulb and it was covered with dust. Once it was cleaned I replaced the bulb and it solved the problem.
Thanks to those who posted the solutions
