Question about Sony Grand WEGA KF50WE610 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Sony Wega KF50WE610

Took more and more starts to turn on and finally wouldn't turn on. A few days ago I replaced the lamp. Worked well a day or two. Now turns on, but turns off in about 3 minutes (no picture and no sound.) A few minutes later it turns on again and then turns off. When I fool with it I get bottom light blinking 5 times. Unplugged for 1 minute and plugged back in. Still same problem.

Any ideas?

    Bulb was already replaced several months ago but we do have the TV on for long periods of time.

5 red blinks = lamp driver or ballast failure.
we610 part # = 1-468-798-14

replacement is straightforward when you unplug the set and open the back up. remove the metal support bracket to expose the ballast. make sure to keep all wires routed as you found them.

Sony grand wega kf-50we610 red lamp light blinking


The red light means that the prjection bulb needs to be replaced. They ony last about two years depending on hours of use. The low popping sounds as well as fan noise is normal for the Sony projection TV. You can Google the owners manual by entering the brand,model etc. and ask for the owner's manual. I had to go to several sites but eventually found it.
