Replace Lamp Flashing

Tv was fine last night, when we tried this morning to turn on it will not come on and the red replace lamp light is flashing then shuts off. Any suggestions other than the obvious? Had no issues with the picture last night. Tv was built on October of 2004

    The exact same thing as above however I have had mine since Nov 2004 (4 years). Is this about the life expectancy for one of these lamps?

    I too bought Nov 2004. Sony Wega 42" LCD Projection TV. Looks like it is time to replace. Thanks.

    I have owned my Sony 42WE610 since January 2005 and it's almost like clock work - I need a new lamp every year around the same time in January. The symptoms include the TV shutting itself off with the red light flashing and then turning back on by itself. Or I have to unplug it and it resets itself, but I may have to wait a few minutes before plugging it back in. Another symptom is some kind of greek lettering across the screen. The picture and sound are great, but I wish it now had an HDMI connection and the amount of money I have spent on bulbs I could have bought a new TV. I would stay away as Sony is aware of the lamp issue.

    Sony KF42WE610 will flash green 40 seconds then the red lamp light flashes for the same amount of time and goes shuts off. If I try this often enough the TV will come on and run until it's turned off. It doesn't appear to be the lamp but could it be a driver for the lamp?

Clean the cooling fans, specifically the lamp cooling fan located inside the rear cover, above the optical blocker. This is easily blocked with dust and causes overheating of lamps/shortened life.

The fan dont turn on when i turn on the tv and the red light is flashing


Hi,
Red light flashing on tv indicates that tv got some problem and shifted to protection mode to avoid further damage.
If Lamp light is flashing on tv then check lamp that would be dead or broke, replace lamp to solve tv problem.
If standby red light is flashing on tv then let me know how many times it is flashing after 3 seconds long pause to provide you helpful info.
Thanks.

Sony grand wega KDF-55wf655 TV goes into flashing green mode


I was having the same problem. I am no expert, but what I read on-line is that it was likely the lamp needing replaced, that the lamp toward the end of its life will flicker and cause the TV to "reboot". I had no Red Lamp replacement light, so I wondered if that was really the problem. But, I bought a replacement lamp for $110 plus shipping, and replaced it last night - TV is working great now. I would try replacing the lamp on yours first yourself (if the lamp is older than 2 yrs), then if that does not work, contact a service person. Don't have a service person replace it, because I have heard many people say they paid $400 for a replacement lamp service, and I did it for under $140 with overnight shipping charge for the new lamp. My original lamp lasted 4 years, so I was lucky to not have this problem sooner.

Replace the lamp - they only last about 2 years with 4 hours use per day.

Status Light Flashes Red


first did you getthe lamp from miths and if notyou could have bought a bad lamp. you need to get a lamp form mits if you did not buy from them. if you did buy from mits have them replace the lamp it has a 90 day warranty. try hitting the menu and device / input buttons for 5 sec and repost the blink code. it is a 2 digits blink code. (ex. 23 or 33 or 26 like that)
