Looks like a problem on the convergence board which requires repairing/replacing..

    Replacing the convergence IC's may resolve this issue. However, you will need the services of a technician if you have no prior experience.

    There will be two convergence IC's placed on large heat sinks. I would recommend replacing both at the same time.

Shuts off and on while trying to watch, the power light flashes 30 times when off then the tv comes back on again


Power supply trouble. The TV keeps trying to start then operates for 2 seconds and shuts down. The cycle keeps repeating until eventually the TV will not start at all.

Problem for Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55WF655. Hello,


5 times Red LED blinks means Lamp Driver Error. (KDF-55WF655)
2 possible reasons, either Lamp is gone or Ballast Supply got bad.
Replace lamp first, in most cases it solved the problem.
How old is this TV and did you replaced lamp recently?
Thanks.

KDF-60XS955 Powers off and on every minute


The lamp light will not come on especially if it lights up during bootup from a cold start. The lamp only lights up on Sony when the lamp shatters in its housing and the system can't ignite the lamp from a cold startup, Sometimes it does'nt light up then. So if it lights when u first cut it on the sysem thinks its ok... But lets verify if the lamp is the problem.

With the tv off using your original remote, Press Display button-----channel 5 button----and Volume up button then Power button within 5 secs of pushing the first button, Screen should come on with a diagnostic screen, Look at the lamp driver option and see if its recorded any numbers to the right of it, if so then this is telling you that the lamp has stopped or tried to ignite that number of times..

Push the number 8 key then enter to reset the numbers back to zero.Turn off power now turn on the television and wait until it happens again, at this point go back to diagnostic as explained eariler and see what it has recorded. If it has recorded a 1 on the lamp driver then replace your lamp. Reminder: Once you have replaced the lamp go to diagnostic screen again and reset the numbers back to zero.

Hope this helps...Thank you

SONY GRAND WEGA KF-50WE610 can't turn on TV screen.


Ths 5 blinks usually indicate an AKB problem. There is a break in the video path. I'll look up your specific model and post the results here. Please update this if you wish to attempt the repair yourself.

Thanks,

Sony KF-50WE620 - 5 Flashes


5 flashes indicates ballast malfunction. 4 flashes indicates fan not working. I would replace the big fan in the back because it is a common failure for this model. But befor this check to see if the lamp door is warped from overheating. If it is the wiring on the balast good be burnt and the light engine could be damaged.

Sony KDP-65WS550 flashes when you try to turn it on


No the DLP units can flash more than 8 times. 9 blinks mean Zero Crossing detector which means diode number D6166 or D6114 is open they are on the A board.Let me know if you need any further info.
