Converter for my sony grand wega 60" to work in the U.K.

I have moved to the U.K.,and I brought my 60" Sony Grand Wega with me.  I read that televisions require a lot of power when first turned on, so I'm wondering what kind of converter to get...is 300W enough? 1000W? Please advise....I don't want to blow it!
Many thanks, Melissa

The specifications for this set list the power consumption at 250 watts so allow for a little extra and go with a 500 watt converter. Also, make sure the converter will change the UK's 50Hz power to the 60 Hz power required for the set. To be exact, the converter must change the UK's 230 volt 50 hertz power to 120 volts (100 will do) 60 hertz. Do NOT attempt to run the TV on 50 hertz power as it is likely you will damage the set

My Sony Wega KDF-55XS955 55" was going on for 1-2 minutes then going black with no sound and after a few minutes would come back on. After reading all the posts and talking with a repair guy I replaced the bulb and that fixed the problem.

Sony grand wega kdf-60 won't power up


It's likely to be the lamp Sony p/n# A-1052-675-A which is a generic Xl2100 which you can purchase from companies like DLP Lamp Source. http://www.dlplampsource.com/
If you're not real sure about doing this have a tech come out and do it, it's an in-home repair.
