Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60WF655 60" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

I have a KDF-60WF655 and the lamp light turns on

After trying to turn on the tv, the power light starts blinking and then stops and the lamp light turns on. The tv never turns on.

If I need to buy a new lamp, will it be a ballast, a lamp, a lamp with housing or what? Will I be able to install it by myself?

Thanks,

Joann Herrans

Joann,
If you buy an original Sony lamp (and I would recommend you do) you will get the lamp with the housing and the allen wrench you need to change the bulb. You shouldn't need a ballast.The reasons to stick with an orginal Sony lamp:
1)You get the lamp with the housing. Some of the aftermarkets just send the lamp and reflector
2) the originals have far less problems than the aftermarkets. I have seen replacements fail early and not be bright enough.
If you have any further questions, feel free to ask. If you are happy with this solution, please rate it. Thanks!

My sony kdf-60wf655 keeps shutting off on its own.what is the problem and can i fix it myself


If tv turns back on itself after shut down then it is weak lamp problem, replace lamp in tv to fix its problem.
Buy Sony original lamp for good picture in tv and replace it as it is user level repair and lamp replacement procedure is mentioned in related user manual.
If standby light start blinking after shut down, let me know how many times it blinks after three second pause to provide you info about possible cause of problem.
Thanks.

Sony grand wega kdf 60wf655 will not start up. red light blinks three times. lamp replaced a year ago.


If the POWER/STANDBY indicator flashes three times, the lamp cover may not be attached securely. Review the lamp-changing instructions in your owner's manual, and make sure that the lamp cover is securely attached.

There is a lamp driver error in your TV set. Most likely the ballast circuit for the bulb. Depending on who you take the set to, you will pay anywhere from 300 to 500 bucks to have this set repaired. This is why i recommend an extended warranty on all of these types of TV sets. This repair will involve replacing a board, and it could be one out of three of the differant boards that control the lamp. good Luck.
