Question about Sony KDF-42WE655 Television
The popping noise started soon after the optical block was replaced because of blue screen on the lower left side of the screen.
The TV is not as bright as when it was new ( 2004 ) and the lamp has been replaced, but did not make any difference..
No codes are left on the Red or Green Indicator lamp.
Also, the popping noise is not as loud as the first ones.
OK the brightness issue may be from putting the old lamp back in. If not, I'm unsure what could be causing your loss of brightness.
In terms of the popping noise, there are many things that could cause a popping noise in the set. The one I worry most about is some kind of electrical discharge., probably related to the lamp driver or lamp ballast. I have seen the high voltage leads that run from the lamp ballast to the lamp socket turn brown and degarde to the point where the insulation falls off, make them a prime candidate to short, causing a popping sound. I would expect that to show an error code though in the form of a flashing red light. It could also be some kind of expansion noise within the cabinet. I would be interested in having you try this:
With the power off, press the following buttons on the remote control:
5 (the number 5 on the keypad)
Vol - (or volume down)
You must use the original remote and press the keys within 2 seconds total. Then read off any items that show a 1 to the right instead of a 0. I will wait for your response. If you found this information aswered your question, please be sure to rate the solution. Thanks!
