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

1 Answer

Sony Grand Wega 55''

My tv has had no problems for three years now. However, I got home yesterday and sat down to watch Hancock and it is turning on and off intermitintly....the green led light on the front does not blink or go off though and the sound continues to run through my Bose 3.2.1 system while its off. It is on for about a minute then off for a minute....any suggestions? I have not changed any of the bulbs since I bought it brand new...

If you have not changed the lamp since purchasing the set, it is probablt due and likely what is causing the power cycling. An old lamp will draw too much power and cause the set to power cycle. Use an original Sony lamp as the aftermarket lamps are known problem makers

Have you changed the lamp? If not the lamps life is around every two to three years. The lamp is easy to change out. Most local repair shops carry the lamps. Hope this helps.
