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.

TV loses signal after warmup

Two questions need answering here:

1. When set is bad does a DVD or anything connected to audio/video jacks work ok?

2. Are you connected via the coax fitting on set and if so what is signal source---direct or from a box etc?

I am relentless when it comes to problems like this. I had the same problem with my TV being stuck in video mode. I found out that there is a reset button......It's on the @*&#^&^ original remote!!!!! So I tried programming my Time Warner Scientific Atlanta AT8550 remote for the TV to see if the "video source" button would work. IT WORKED!!!! You have to use code 1062. Instructions are:

1. Turn the TV on.
2. Press and hold select and the TV keys until the lights blink twice.
3. Enter 1062. All mode keys blink twice to indicate that the code was accepted.
4. Point the remote at the TV and press power to test the TV.
5. You can then successfully use the "Video Source" button on the bottom left of the remote to change the video mode. VOILA!!!

If you don't have a Scientific Atlanta AT8550 remote, I'm sure you know someone that does. They're everywhere!
