Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-55XS955 55" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Video cycles on - warmup mode - on warmup mode - etc.

The TV turns on as normally and then approximately 2 minutes later the video shuts off and the power light blinks green indicating the set is "warming up". The video then comes on again for a minute or two and the set goes back into the warm-up mode. This cycle apparently continues forever. The first time it occured, I had been watching the TV for hours when it suddenly went into warm-up. Since then, the set behaves as stated above. The only advice from Sony was unplug it for awhile and try again. (didn't work) I also reset the TV back to all factory settings with no effect. I've ordered a replacement lamp, but really don't think that's the answer. Has anyone seen this problem? An ideas? Thanks ahead of time for any help you can give.

Yellow and blue ghost warped top and bottom. shut it off it was fine , turned tv on 5 minutes later had problem

Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded overs.

To get fixed either call in a local TV repair company or goto sites such as to get a repair kit with instructions.

When I first turn on my TV, I get horizonal faded lines

it probably has leaky capacitors in the hyper board or the video process board, this repair requires a qualified tv repairman, you can't do it yourself, alot of actual repairman can't handle this repair. it will get progressively worse as time goes on the more leaky the capacitors become.
