I need an email address to send you a copy of the service bulletin on how to do this the correct way. PLEASE do it the way describes in the bulletin, and not as other have described it on the site. If you choose to do it the east way, you risk having your very own timebomb/fire hazard sitting in your living room. I'll wait for the email address and send it to you. Thanks!

TV turn off every 45 minutes


6 blinks = thermal sensor. in rare cases its the power board but in this case its usually a faulty thermal fuse. it sits under the lamp and can be tested with a multimeter or ohm meter. you can short it out and the tv will work but it will lose its fire safety, but this can get a temporary fix until you get a new fuse. the new sony fuse is like $15 for the part i believe. let me know how you want to procede.. repair center cost = 100-200 $ hopefully

Replacing Thermal Fuse in Sony Grand Wega KDF-E55A20


The PROPER way to replace the thermal fuse is to remove the optical block first. There are at least two recessed screws holding the block in place. BE VERY CAREFUL removing the block as it is very easy to tear/rip wires when doing so. I cannot emphasize enough NOT TO JUST THROW THE NEW THERMAL FUSE INSIDE THE CABINET!!!! The thermal fuse is a safety device mounted near the lamp to prevent overheating. Those that choose to just let the fuse "sit out in the open air" are risking greater failures and the possibility of fire.

Thermal Fuse


The thermal fuse is usually located near the lamp to prevent the lamp overhaeting and damaging the set. Sony uses two types of thermal fuses: the first type is a circular metal type, about the size of a quarter with two metal tabs for push on lugs that connect to the TV. The second type is a small plastic half moon type woth wires coming from the base. Contrary to what you might read elsewhere on this site, it is VERY IMPORTANT that you mount the new fuse where the old one was, for safety reasons.

Sony model KDF55WF655 blinking light 6 red flashes,no picture,no sound....
I just replaced my thermal fuse for $4.80 plus shipping handling.Took me 30 minutes to fix and 30 minutes to get dust out of TV.Take off the back of the tv about 8 screws,then remove the fan housing on the right hand side about 4 screws.If you have the new fuse you will know which wire it is ..grey and white.I found it easy to get to the other end through the front panel of the tv only 2 screws ,remove front panel and then remove cover on projection bulb and you will see the other end of the fuse clipped on.Remember to unplug tv. TV is working excellent now .
Thanks to everyone on this website.I have pictures if anyone needs them to repair it.

Pwer flashes 5 green 6 red


6 blinks is most likely thermal fuse failure. parts should be available through sony. thermal fuse is a 2 pin device under the lamp cartridge(looking from back) metal oblong looking peice that is screwed into the bottom of the tv. the new thermal fuse sent from sony will look completly different and as long as you cut the wires on the old one you can leave it in the tv and position the new fuse around the old one.

Sony kdf-60xs955, rear projection tv


There is a Thermal fuse under the lamp housing that opens up and Sony has a New style fuse to replace it with, it opens up one of the p/s lines to set code 6, replace with new thermal fuse and test. You will want a Skilled Professional to replace this fuse as it does require some dissassembly and removal of light engine to remove fuse from under lamp housing to put new one on side of lamp housing.
