Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF60XBR800 60" Rear Projection Television

3 Answers

The unit powers on and off.

The unit powers on fo 30 seconds then it powers off and the standby indicator flashes continuously for 60 seconds then the unit powers itself on. If I don't turn off the unit it will continue to turn on and off in order described above. I checked and tightend the lamp compartment cover, unplugged unit overnight to reset it and continue to have the problem.

    Sony kf60xbr800 powers on and off for 30 seconds

  • jcolosi Feb 28, 2008

    I have the same issue. The symptom has these steps:
    1. TV is on
    2. TV will go into a standby mode, picture goes black
    3. The red LED on the front will flash for about 30 seconds
    4. The picture returns

    At first this process repeated itself once every few hours. Now it is on for 30 seconds, off for 30 seconds.

    I believe I need to replace the bulb, but I'm not sure how.

  • TJLARSON Apr 17, 2008

The same thing happened to me. A Sony tech told me the lamp needed replacing and sent one out. TV worked fine after replacing the lamp.

This same problem is posted at least two other times on this forum. Seems like most folks are recommending replacing the lamp.
The lamp is called "LTIP/A1601-753A" or sometimes just "XL-2000U". Googling those terms shows hits from a number of places including eBay. It looks like it will cost between $150-$200.
There are instructions for replacing the lamp here:

Will not come on, the standby red button keeps flashing.....( Sony)


Hi,

The Standby/Power light of the TV blinks when there is any internal malfunction in the TV. The self-diagnostic function of the TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue.

Few examples are given below; some of the issues may be resolved without the need for service.
1 blink / 2 blinks / 5 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set.
3 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a power-related problem with your set. The set will need to be serviced to allow a technician to determine the specific issue that needs to be repaired. If the power light flashes three times in sequence in a Lamp TV, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
4 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a back light or lamp power problem.
6 blinks: - This indicates that there is some kind of audio problem with your set.
7 blinks: - This indicates that there is a temperature problem with your set. Please check to make sure that the air vents on the sides and back of the set are not blocked or clogged and there is adequate ventilation around the television. We recommend that you check and clean the vents periodically to make sure the set receives adequate air flow. If the problem continues, the set will need to be serviced.
8 blinks: - This indicates that there may be a video-related problem with your set. If the flash sequence is not listed above or the light continues to flash, follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Turn off the television.
Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet.

If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.

If the issue continues to occur, service may be required.

The self-diagnostic function of the projection television will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue. The number of times the STANDBY light flashes corresponds to a specific issue, some of which you may be able to resolve without the need for service.
  • If the STANDBY light flashes three times in sequence, the lamp cover is not securely attached. Reattach the lamp cover to resolve this issue.
  • If the STANDBY light flashes four times in sequence, the television may be overheating. To resolve this issue, ensure that the back of the television is well ventilated.
NOTE: If the television will not turn on immediately after being turned off, wait for the fan to finish its cycle, then attempt to turn it on again. This is part of the cooling process of some projection televisions and is normal operation.
If the flash sequence is not listed above, or the light continues to flash after troubleshooting the indicated issue, follow the steps below to perform a power reset on the television:

  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.

If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required. Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.

Intermittent lamp turn off


I was told by the repair service to unplug the power cord for about 5min. This resets the internal computer. I think this helps but does not cure the cause. Good luck.

I have a KDF60XS955. When I power it on, the fan comes on, the standby light flashes green several times, the lamp comes on and the standby light goes to solid green. This lasts for less than 5 seconds then the lamp goes out, followed by ~30 green standby flashes, the lamp coming on with the solid green standby light for about 5 seconds then shuts off the lamp again. I can hear/feel the fan running the enitre time. This cycle continues endlessly. Please help!
