Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XS955 60" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

INTERMITTENT PICTURE AND SOUND

SET TURNS ON AND GREEN POWER LIGHT IS ON. PICTURE AND SOUND FOR ABOUT 30-45 SECONDS, THEN LOSE BOTH PIC AND SOUND FOR ABOUT 45 SECONDS, THEN JUST KEEPS REPEATING IN THAT PATTERN. GREEN POWER LIGT IS ON AND I HAVE NO FLASHING LIGHTS ANYWHERE. TOLD COULD BE LAMP, BUT DOES THAT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE SOUND? PIC IS FANTASTIC AND SOUND IS CLEAR WHEN THEY ARE ON.

    My problem began this morning.
    TV tries to turn on... green lamp blinks. After 20 to 30 seconds I get sound and a very dim (almost not there picture) and the tv shuts off. Once I had the red light which blinked a sequence of 5.

    I was told to unplug the television for about an hour. Also sent my wife down to pick up a new projector bulb. I replaced this bulb about 14 months ago (this is the second bulb since purchasing the tv April of 2005.

    Is this a bulb problem or something more sinister?
    TIA.

You were told correctly, you have a bad lamp. When the lamp gets old, the reflector becomes cloudy and instead of reflecting the light, it converts it into heat. As the lamp heats, it draws more power, eventually too much power and the set "recycles" because the lamp is drawing too much power. Replace the lamp, use an original Sony lamp as the aftermarket replacements are known troublemakers. If the bulb fixes the problem (and I know it will because I fix these TV's everyday) be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!

Screen turns green The picture and sound are fine when I turn on the tv. After about thirty seconds the screen turns green and then turns off and the power light blinks.


Sad to say, but that's one of the ways a picture tube can behave when it's gone bad. After it warms up, one of the wire elements in the neck of tube sags and touches something it shouldn't. As a result you're seeing the green screen, and then the set shuts down for safety because of voltage feeding back. The only way to repair the set would be with a new tube, and that's completely uneconomical. You can buy a new 32-inch LCD set now for less than the price of a new tube, not including the labor to install the replacement and get the color alignment (convergence) set up.

Picture & sound go on & off every sec, red light blinks 5 times


helloFive blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.
